Yesterday’s run included new snow on our mountains, crazy wind and bits of rain… and I’ll take that ANY day over heat when I am pregnant. 6.22 miles @ 9:06 average (not including walk breaks) with my sister and we were so happy that the weather put out fires in our area and cleaned up our air.
I ended up carrying my hat for the second half of my run because the wind was so strong it kept blowing it off of my head.
PS remember my friend that paced me for my 50 miler? He said this on Strava the other day and I couldn’t agree more.
I came home from my run and had hot chocolate with the girls.
We did school at home (it’s starting to feel more normal again!) and then took a break to the duck pond. Skye’s favorite song is ‘Ducks Like Rain’ and we listen to it 20 times a day so she was happy to sing the song to actual ducks.
All three of us needed a nap in the late afternoon and woke up feeling so much better.
And of course soup had to happen for dinner and we had this copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana! It was so so good. PS we use this cast-iron pot/dutch oven more than any other pot and it is perfect for making soup.
I didn’t post any tangents yesterday so I thought I’d get all of my random thoughts/pictures out today instead!
*Skye was beyond happy to have her sister back and so were we!
*I’m really going to miss my sister’s carpet in her basement when she remodels the area;) There are so many different patterns and colors happening in there!
*This made Andrew’s day.
*I’ve always had a bit of an outie belly button but pregnancy really brings it out and I get plenty of stares as I’m running.
*Never in my life did I think I would be as excited as I was to watch a live football game… I’m guessing the game a few nights ago was the most viewed BYU football game ever since there aren’t many sports games to watch anymore.
*Pure joy from Skye as she was wearing an ‘Elsa’ braid with her freshly pierced ears. I have no idea how a 2 year old is taking such good care of her ears (and enjoys us cleaning them with the solution they gave us 3 times a day) but she is very happy that we said yes to getting them pierced.
*Megan posted this and it is 10000% Andrew and me! I always pack early (and if I am packing for a trip that involves a marathon then I am packing 2 weeks early) and Andrew does the other option but at least he never forgets anything… I tend to forget everything.
Which are you? Pack early or start right before you need to leave?
What is harder to run with… humidity or at altitude?
Are you into hot chocolate or not your thing? (We will still be friends no matter how you answer… I’m openminded about this;)
Do you like to eat just one type of cereal at a time or do you ever mix cereal and/or add toppings?
