Brookester joined me for the last mile of my 5 mile run (9:15 average pace) yesterday before she went to school.
The weather felt great while we were moving but once we were done we felt cold and hot chocolate was needed.
The first of many many cups over the next 8 months.
Rewind to the beginning of the day—> Skye has been waking up randomly in the middle of the night the last few days (how sweet of her to prepare us for waking up when the new baby comes;) so when I woke up to get ready for a run, I was a little out of it. I went to put on my deodorant without taking off this piece on the top and it was quite the unpleasant feeling because it took me a second to realize what I was doing ha. Anybody else ever done this?
Now that the days aren’t getting so hot we are able to go on more walks!
And the two most delicious parts of our day were this After-School Banana Bread from Magnolia Table (it’s the best banana bread we’ve ever had).
And this Hearty Minestrone with Spicy Sausage and Beans from Run Fast, Eat Slow.
The soup deserves another picture because that is how good it is. I don’t know what it is about soups lately but they have been sounding amazing at all times.
I’m very thankful for the leftovers of this soup that I will be eating for breakfast today:)
We finished off our day with Brooke’s soccer game.
I could watch her run all day!
And just a few Thursday Things to talk about before I let you go:
*At the age of two she has decided that no one will help her to get her clothes on and no one will brush her hair besides herself. She did not learn her independence from me;)
*Molly sent this to me haha….
*My friend’s wife has been practicing drawing the finish line for the virtual Boston Marathon that he is doing on Labor Day. Isn’t that the sweetest?!
*Cafe Rio made a pretty hilarious commercial and I hope it makes you laugh too…
A question from Andrew’s IG and I’d love to hear your answer…
Favorite recipe from either the Run Fast, Eat Slow or Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow cookbooks if you have them?
How often do you need music when you run? Do you race with music?
Have a favorite type of soup?
