Thank you thank you thank you for your sweetest comments yesterday! I read each and every one and cried multiple times (blaming it on hormones;) You can still enter the giveaway here for some new running shoes!
When I woke up for my run yesterday I told myself that I was just going to do one mile. I was going to get up, get moving and stop at exactly 1.0000000 mile and then walk home because that was as far as I felt like I had the energy for. This trick works for me every single time that I use it because once I finally got to that 1 mile beep on my watch, I was feeling energized and wanting more.
5 miles @ 9:34 average.
Whenever I see candy on the road during a run my first thought is that it is from a runner that was using it as their source of glucose during a long run and they accidentally dropped it. Gummy worms would work nicely during a long run, I need to try them.
I’ve arrived to a very rewarding time in parenting… I come home from a run and Brooke wants to make ME pancakes.
I had a doctor’s appointment and the girls hung out with my parents while we were gone. They are too good at pretending to be dogs!
Skye really wanted to hear the baby for herself.
My mom sent us home with this bag of taffy and they were heavenly.
Andrew made this soup (I can’t get enough soup lately) and it was beyond delicious. I’m thinking of making it again today already.
I have a few tangents to talk about today!
*Now that Skye doesn’t fall asleep with a binky in her mouth she sings herself to sleep. We find ourselves outside her door listening to the songs she comes up with and it’s my new favorite thing ever.
*This is a text from my mom from a few months ago. I was dreading something that I was about to have to do and wanted a fast forward button and she reminded me that you just have to go through it. There is no other way around these hard things in life and I need to stop trying to jump over them because I’ve never been able to jump high anyways ha.
*We made our annual Halloween sugar cookies. We have used this copycat Kneaders recipe for Brooke’s entire life and it is just the best…
*My favorite mountain (Mt Timpanogos) in the world was on fire over the weekend but luckily the part close to my parents house has been put out… 2020 is just nonstop!
*Use this chart today to decide whether or not you should run today;)
Have there been any fires in your area over the last few months? How close?
Last type of candy that you had (I feel like we haven’t talked about candy in a very long time)!
What’s your run today? On dirt, on grass, on the road? With anybody or solo?
Tell me something you are looking forward to today!
