Katie was telling me yesterday in the comments about how she and her siblings name their running routes. With my running group they definitely had names for certain trails and areas but it turns out my sister and I have been VERY boring and haven’t come up with one name for our routes in the 22 years we’ve been running together. This needs to change so my sister and I are beginning to brainstorm names.
I wonder who started lying on the sidewalk after a hard run first, my sister or me?
5 miles @ 9:12 average pace.
Later on Andrew took me to get my Pho craving satisfied.
It was absolutely delicious.
PS this is how we are able to go on little dates with Skye… We just bring the whole house with us:)
On the way home I was already hungry again ha so we ate jamba and a slice of bread in the car. My current levels of pregnancy hunger/cravings are getting pricey.
It makes me really happy to see them on the couch reading.
Fast forward to the kids doing their run/walk (for their school goal) and then they had showers and requested chocolate milk. I was so proud:)
I have a few Friday Favorites to share today!
*This is as simple as it gets but a friend brought sliced apples with cinnamon on top to a get together the other day and I couldn’t stop eating them. It tastes perfect for this time of year and simplicity is the best.
*Our favorite game has resurfaced. We love Tenzi and it’s an easy game for kids to pick up and understand too. It is a fast moving game and you can fit it in at random times without anything to setup/cleanup. I love playing against Andrew too… We get quite competitive when it comes to this game.
*Another old photo but if you are needing an awesome long sleeve (for cheap) for your running, this is my favorite one! They come in so many colors and they are super flexible for the run and such a good deal. They wash SO well too.
*OOFOS! My feet have been acting up again with my changing body but as soon as I start wearing these whenever I am home, my feet feel so much better. I attribute these shoes to keeping my feet happy during last year’s 80+ miles training weeks. They feel so good.
*Okay, last documentary I talk about for a little while. We watched the documentary, ‘The Weight of Gold.’ It was really interesting (and pretty heavy) and talked all about the side of the Olympics that we don’t see or talk about often. If you love learning about these different athletes and more of the behind the scenes, it’s a great watch especially with some apple crisp and ice cream.
Do you have different names for your running routes?
What is a snack that you love that is really simple?
Any games that you’ve been playing a lot of lately?
Outside of running, what is your favorite Olympic sport to watch?
