We finally got in another run together. Brooke has been sleeping in a lot more lately which hasn’t given us time to run before school but yesterday she was up and ready to lace up her shoes and run to school. She brought my average pace down again (I did the first part of my run solo) and I finished with 4.5 miles @ 9:38 average pace.
Brooke’s latest running tip—> Throw in some leaps throughout your run to add some fun, speed, smiles from people driving by and to avoid stepping on cracks and breaking your mother’s back.
My running tip is to plan your routes right now where you can run through the most amount of leaves on the ground. Picture from my run earlier in the morning. PS lately I’ve been sticking to being around a mile or a mile and a half max away from my house. I don’t want to be too far if anything happens!
Skye and I tried out Michelle’s oatmeal version with sautéd apples and bananas and wow. Butter just makes everything better. I learn the best things from you guys.
We both loved it and now I’m not sure if Skye will ever be able to eat oatmeal without her apples cooked in some butter first.
When I asked Skye what she wanted to do yesterday she told me she wanted to go on a walk and then get the baby out of my stomach… This gives me hope that she is excited to be a big sister:).
Andrew, Skye and I went out for a bit during the day.
This salad from 180 Tacos brings us both a lot of happiness.
And then I spent a lot of time on the couch and the kids tried on their Halloween costumes for me.
I did eventually get off the couch to go on a walk with the crew.
A peanut butter smoothie followed by sweet potato gnocchi from TJs (isn’t that a delicious sounding combo;).
And then we watched the World Series…
PS how long will Skye LOVE doing chores like feeding Beretta?! I’m really enjoying this.
Very random running tangent… I noticed on Des Linden’s IG picture the dirt on her socks just above her ankles. I kick my feet there too and end up with those same marks during my runs sometimes… does anybody else do this?
Give US one of your running tips that you’ve been using lately?
How often do you go on walks? Those of you with dogs… how often do you walk them? Do you enjoy walks?
-We are trying to get in as many as we possibly can before snow hits!
Are you dressing up this year for Halloween?
-This year will be much different than most Halloweens but we are dressing up… I’m going to be a pirate.
Who else is watching the World Series? Who are you cheering for?
