Normal me with a race on my calendar: Rain, snow, wind or fog… I’ll get out there for my run. I won’t be able to choose the weather on race day so I better get out there and practice running in bad weather now because it’s going to make me stronger.
Raceless me: Yeah, it’s raining/snowing hard and I’m just going to stay inside for as long as I need to avoid any weather that is even somewhat annoying;)
Instead of heading out, I did a strength workout (below in my favorite things) and started the kids with school. Once it was a bit warmer and no longer snowing I did a few miles and felt my fingertips the entire time;)
Just a normal day for us at home. School, animals & bikes.
And then we decided to have a really good dinner. We had Sally’s Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, corn on the cob and steak!
Skye was in a really good mood all day yesterday;)
Followed by funfetti cake (remember how our wedding cake was funfetti?) for dessert!
I have just a few favorite things to talk about today!
*It’s Birkenstock season! Every spring of my life I start having feet problems with my running until I realize that it’s because I’m wearing unsupportive sandals and switch over to Birkenstocks. I love them. They make my feet happy so I can keep running and they are cute. I found a bunch of them on sale here and I just got a new pair for this year.
*Baseball is Back: Some Good News with John Krasinski. It was Andrew’s favorite episode. If you are a healthcare worker and use AT&T you need to watch the end:)
*It’s Megan’s WEDDING DAY TODAY so go spread some love to her and also, I’m LOVING her IG Live workouts. They are so easy to do from home and it almost feels like I am getting to hang out with her when I do them. I did her latest full body circuit yesterday and it’s a winner… I’ll be sore until next week. They are all on her IG page.
*I’m SO grateful to my favorite podcasters for continuing to share awesome episodes during this time. Podcasts are helping me feel like I am socializing with people and this one was an amazing episode.
*For those of you that listened to the ‘Dirty John’ podcast, Andrew and I watched it on Netflix too. It had been a few years since I had listened to the story and I had forgotten how crazy the whole thing was. The last episode I closed my eyes (you’ll know when… it was graphic) but the rest was really intense if you like those sorts of things that are also true stories.
*Do you have a favorite SPF for your face? I’d love to hear what you use. I’ve been using Kiehl’s every morning before my run and then again after my shower and I really really love it, I just want to find something a little cheaper.
*My friend Maddie sent me a video message the other day just when I needed it and it made me cry. It’s amazing how much these acts of reaching out mean right now. I miss PEOPLE!
What SPF do you use? How do you like it?
What was the best part about your week?
Last good podcast you listened to?
Does the weekend feel at all different to you these days or does it all feel the same?
