Hope today is a good one for you…

Happy Labor Day!  The weekend flew past me at record speed!  I know a lot of you are busy enjoying a day off so I’ll just share this picture with you today!  I’ll be back tomorrow with all of the details from Brooke’s baptism.  I hope you have a beautiful day!

——————————————————————————————————

Are you running today?  How far and with anyone?

Do you have the day off?

-It’s just me, Andrew (he doesn’t work) and Skye today so we are brainstorming things to do (but eating tomatoes and nap time for all three of us is bound to happen).  

How was your weekend on a scale from 1-10?!

I have family in Highlands Ranch 😊
Good luck today! I would love to do a real race with real people! Would love to know how it goes, did they have water stations, etc….

Wendy – It was wonderful! The one thing they did not have was a porta-potty on the course. There were a few in parks along the way, but it would have been nice if they were a little closer to the path. BUT that being said it IS the time of COVID, so this may not be their normal race set-up. I would definitely do it again! The race crew was wonderful and the time trial start was seamless.

This is so good to hear :) Thank you for sharing!
I have nothing on the race calendar until Super Bowl Sunday, so I am hopeful that I will get to run my favorite half marathon! It seems like everything is constantly changing… fingers crossed!!

OH and plenty of aid stations along the way with water/gatorade/gels!

AHHHH this makes me so happy! How did it go Dawn? I am so happy you were able to do this race and I hope you loved every mile. I agree with Wendy, I’d love to hear about how the race put this all together during this time. Hope you had some amazing post race food!

My Half PB! 2:14:44 and my goal was 2:15!! The course was great, the time trial starts were perfect, the aid stations were plentiful and the race crew was amazing! We stopped and had PF Changs afterward and it was wonderful! So excited to be back to live races! Blessings to Brooke and your whole family on her special baptism day!

Ahhhh you crushed it! Huge congrats on a personal best and I’m so happy you were able to do this! PF Change afterwards sounds perfect. Congrats friend and thanks for letting us know!

day off, running two miles (on a running streak, can’t miss!), and planning on cooking something tasty (tbd).
Wondering what you’re doing with your hair these days — my ends (probably more than bottom half) is super dry. I’m have some hair envy for your great locks!

RUNNING STREAK! That is awesome Sage, you have to keep me updated on your streak! You are so sweet, thank you so much. I just had it trimmed but these are the products I have been using and loving:

This shampoo and conditioner: https://amzn.to/3h9mE4s
This smoother: https://amzn.to/2FbDanl
This for some shine (and to protect it from heat): https://amzn.to/33azXwy

I’ve also stopped blow drying my hair and I think that has helped too! Hope you have the best day!

I have free weekend so I tend to sleep more, do breakfast with friends, errands on saturday and relax for the rest of time. Now I’m planning to stat gym outdoor (nordic walking, hike, trekking) during weekend

Reply

That sounds perfect Giulia! I am so glad you have had a great weekend and keep me updated on your outdoor gym sessions! I need to go on a good hike asap!

Definitely running something, maybe 5 or 6 miles.
This weekend we have had extreme heat, so we have just been hanging around the house in the AC.
Such a great family picture! Can’t wait to hear all about it!

Reply

I hope your run was a great one Wendy and I cannot believe the heat that you guys are experiencing. I hope you have some ice cream today too and thank you friend!

Hi Janae! I have the day off! My weekends been pretty good so far. My fiance went on a boys trip in an RV (we had to move our wedding due to covid but he decided to go ahead with what was supposed to be the bachelor trip just with two other friends instead). I’ve kind of been enjoying the quiet time. I saw my friend yesterday and we decided on a whim to give me a haircut and we got 15 inches to donate!

Happy weekend!

I have been wondering about what you guys were going to do with your wedding! Do you have a date now? I am so glad you have the day off and yay for your haircut and donating your hair! Enjoy the rest of your day Amy!

Reply

Thanks! We don’t have a date yet, gotta wait til it’s ok for his parents to travel (they are older and live abroad so it might take a while). It’s definitely weird being in limbo not having a date but I just think we have a lifetime ahead of us so it’ll be ok.

Reply

Yes yes yes! A lifetime together! Keep me updated and I hope it happens sooner than you think!

No run today… the air is actually pretty unhealthy. Yesterday and tonight we have ash falling from the fires up near Fort Collins and covering everything!. It’s been crazy hot this weekend reaching up to 101 at one point! Crazy to think it’s supposed to snow tomorrow!?! Although I wish it were rain instead, hopefully the snow will help with the fires at least!! 2020 has been something else…

Reply

Kathy, I am so so sorry about the fires in your area. I really hope the cooler temps and snow(?!?) help put them out! Keep me updated! I’m ready for 2021!
