I decided it was a good day to wear my pregnancy tank! 6 miles @ 9:31 pace in 50 degree weather while listening to Lindsey Hein talking to Andrew Kastor. The episode made me realize that I really need to read Deena Kastor’s book (Let Your Mind Run… my favorite running book) again. Her take on optimism and the power of the mind in our training/racing is just what I will need as I start training again next year.
PS has anyone heard anything about Boston sign-ups for next year? My running friends have all been wondering but haven’t heard anything.
Brooke had another day of school!
As you can tell from the picture, Andrew has already passed down his love for Halloween to Skye.
She even insists on wearing her Halloween socks to bed every night.
The house sure feels really quiet when it’s just Skye and me.
Once Andrew was done with work we went out for a late dinner. Our Zao’s does a free kid’s meal for each adult eating so we definitely went and took advantage of that deal.
And then we finished off the night with ice cream at my sister’s house…
I have just a few tangents to share today!
*How Brooke feels about going on the same slide 200 times in a row and how Skye feels about going on the same slide 200 times in a row:
*If something sounds good at the store, I can’t even wait until I get to the car to open it up.
*Did you see the story about how Ryan Hall only ran FIVE times this year and then for his sixth run he did a 43 mile ultra? I spent 5ish months training really hard for my ultra and it still killed me ha… how do people do that?
*My sister told me to watch this and wow. Just wow. If you have a chance, it’s really incredible and super helpful as we figure out what we will be doing with our kids when they are teenagers…
*We tried out a new pumpkin cookie a few days ago. Andrew does not like chocolate and pumpkin combined so we had a recipe without any chocolate and the icing made up for the lack of chocolate:). They were delicious.
*Skye does NOT want us to read to her. She wants to read to us and the stories she makes up are quite entertaining.
*A friend of mine on Facebook was talking about another one of my friend’s responses to a hard situation and I just had to share the three words she said. When she asked her husband about how they were going to handle an upcoming difficult situation, her husband said:
“LET’S GO GROW!!”
I love those three words so much and I am going to repeat that to myself before challenges, hard runs/races in the future etc.
Do you ever sleep with socks on or does that sound absolutely terrible to sleep with socks on?
-I used to always wear socks to bed but now I just can’t!
Do you like chocolate with pumpkin or would you rather have your pumpkin items without it?
What was the last thing that you watched? Do you recommend it?
Do you tend to buy running clothing that has writing on it or pattens on it or do you prefer solid colors?
