I was late getting out the door to meet my sister (I just run to her house to pick her up) and so I finished my toast along the way there. This brought back many flashbacks to 2019 when I was training for an ultra and I would eat pb & j sandwiches, donuts, fig bars and anything else I could pack up and take with me for the run. I remember people looking at me like I was crazy when I had a full sandwich out and I was eating it as I ran along the paved trail with the other runners/walkers/bikers. PS my thoughts on doing another ultra are still the same… no way UNLESS I had someone to train with and run the race with the entire time. I think I would enjoy doing it with friends but the marathon will always have my heart and be my focus for a while.
I picked up the sis and we did 7 miles together (I did 8 because I ran to her house and back afterwards). Chloe asked yesterday about how I am deciding my mileage right now… Now that I’m running with my sister I’m kind of just doing what she wants or feels like for the day. I’ll probably stick to around 45-50 miles a week for a while to keep a good base but I’m not really planning anything. I usually have 60-75 minutes a day to run (I guess more if I could get myself up earlier ha) so that’s usually what I do.
The highlight of the day was going to visit Mer from her back porch. She is handling our current situation so well and staying optimistic. I can’t wait to go to Kneader’s with her again or for our big family dinners.
Her dogs were happy to get some time in with the kids while we were there too.
We have ordered more delivery pizza than I thought possible over the last two months. I ate this for dinner and I’m all about eating leftover pizza cold especially when it means I don’t have to dirty a dish to eat it ha.
PS Our favorite two local spots in Utah County = 2 Jacks Pizza and The Pizza Factory.
Showers and bedtime extra early because it was needed for all:)
I have a few favorite things to share this week:
*2020 is our craft record year. I do not come up with crafts on my own but Amazon makes it easy to help fulfill Brooke’s artistic needs:). This Diamond Painting Kit has been so good for Brooke. It keeps her busy for a while.
*I have gone from wearing leggings everyday to wearing biker shorts a lot as it’s gotten warmer here. They are just so comfortable and easy to throw on and go. I’ve been getting them from Shop Stevie’s website and couldn’t be happier about this current fashion trend.
*The other thing that I’ll be wearing all summer long are these t-shirt dresses from Gap Factory. They are $12.99 each (and with my Gap credit card rewards I ended up getting 2 for $7 and free shipping!). They have the cutest colors and they are so light and comfortable. They also have the tall option which I got (I’m 5’8.75”) and it sits about a half an inch above my knee. I’m a big fan.
*Triedandtruemoms keep talking about how delicious the frozen mango chunks are to snack on from TJ’s and they are 100000% correct on these. We will be going through many bags of these this summer.
I will be running for Ahmaud today. I just heard about this story and it instantly made me cry. Ahmaud was out for a run when he was shot and killed. This happened in February and it is absolutely heartbreaking. Today is his birthday so go to your favorite place to run/walk and dedicate this time to him!
Where do you end up buying most of your clothing from?
Cold pizza… yes or no? Any other leftovers that you enjoy cold?
Have any credit cards that you absolutely love the rewards you get from it?
Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten while running?
