I hope you have a beautiful Memorial Day. I am so incredibly grateful to those who have served and sacrificed so much for our country.
On my way to my sister’s house it started raining and my sister didn’t realize that it was raining until she walked out the door and then she looked at me and said, “WHAT DO WE DO?” I said, “You go inside and grab us hats and we run, ha.” She then told me she hoped that when it rained it meant that runners skip their run and go out for waffles instead.
She wasn’t happy with me before we left but she was very happy when we finished. She was proud of herself for getting out there regardless of the weather.
Somehow, over the next 5ish months I’ve got to warm her up to the idea that we will be running together through snow this winter;)
8 miles @ 9:17 pace along with a walk up a big hill because there was no way I was running up that hill.
When the owner of a restaurant has your order memorized… The kids had already eaten but Andrew gladly joined me for the fresh salad that always seems to be calling my name these days.
I would be happier filling up my water bottle with that salad dressing and drinking that all day than drinking water ha.
Turns out that a caramel apple was needed too from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. It’s really nice to have food that I WANT to eat now rather than just eating the only things that don’t sound absolutely terrible anymore.
The girls played fetch with a bouncy ball that we had for a solid 30 minutes.
We have become more easily entertained than ever before.
The girls both had a hair cut. This was Skye’s first real haircut and she was just so proud of herself afterwards and kept feeling it (masks were worn inside:).
On Sunday we definitely all slept in and then went straight for the pancakes. When I was pregnant with Skye I thought pancakes were a pregnancy craving but they aren’t, I just always love them and this syrup takes them to the next level.
I got back in bed after the pancakes because 9.5 hours of sleep that night clearly wasn’t enough.
And then we went to the mountains.
We went on a trail that I used to run with my friends all of the time and it brought back many memories from last year (Pipeline trail).
Skye attacked the uphills.
Being outside in the fresh air does wonders for my mental health, a few minutes in and my mood improved 200%.
Once we got home, Skye was climbing on a stool and she fell off and it hit her in the face. That lip of hers kept getting bigger and bigger over the next few hours so she was not a happy camper. Although, she didn’t hate the fact that we let her have as many popsicles as she wanted because it was hurting her too bad to eat solids.
For dinner last night we brought over a salad and homemade rolls to go with my sister’s amazing pasta dish. My sister says she enjoys cooking more when she doesn’t follow a recipe so she made up some crazy sauce that I wish she wrote the recipe down for because I need this again and again.
Do you ever make up your own recipes or would you rather follow a recipe?
What was the best thing that you ate this last weekend?
Tell me about the craziest weather conditions that you have run through?
What’s your plan today? If you are working do you have the day off? Doing a special run?
