I had zero desire to start my run but was so happy I did for the rest of the day because it made me feel so much better.
4 miles @ 9:43 pace.
Another day, another walk…
We checked off another Halloween tradition and carved pumpkins.
And Skye painted hers.
For dinner I went out to celebrate Candice and Megan’s birthday. Getting out for a few hours of girl time was very needed and it was the first time I wore something other than pjs after 6 pm in a long time ha.
You’d think after ten years of doing this I could take a good food picture ha. We went to Black Sheep Cafe and I had the fried chicken and mashed potatoes and they were heavenly.
PS they brought their school pictures home… They are growing up way too fast!
I’ve got a few favorite things to share with you today!
*Tis’ the season to be wearing something to keep my ears warm for most of my runs over the next few months. I found a new one that I am in love with because it is so soft, reversible (2 colors in 1 wahoo) and keeps my ears so warm. It comes in a few great colors too and you can find it here!
*A few of you recommended that I listen to ‘Your Own Backyard’ because you know I love listening to True Crime podcasts. This one is very interesting and I am hooked!
*I am so excited for this one. I haven’t tried out all of the pieces yet (because they won’t zip up right now:) but I will give full reviews for when I do. Brooks has come out with a new Carbonite line with better reflectivity than ever (they developed it with 3M). We are all running in the dark a lot more often during this time of year and we need to be seen! They also came out with a Carbonite tank and shorts too for those of you that are living in warmer areas and running in the dark too. Usually superreflective gear is made for colder temps so I am so happy they did this!
*I FINALLY have my medals hung up with THIS medal hanger. You’d think that after 12ish years of racing I would have done this a long time ago but I haven’t. Slowly but surely we are decorating our new gym space (aka our garage but now it feels fancy;) and I put my medals up (my favorite ones.. I don’t have all of them because I’ve lost a lot of them when moving etc) yesterday along with my favorite print that Andrew had made for me. Now to hang up some of my favorite race bibs, quotes, pictures and a chalk board.
Do you have your race stuff hung up? Where do you keep your race bibs/medals etc?
What are you looking forward to this weekend?!
Do your ears get cold easily while you run? Do you wear a lot of earwarmers/headbands?
How often are your runs in the dark vs the light? What do you wear to be seen?
