My plan for yesterday’s run was to get up and run super early but when my sister texted me the night before that Skye could be at her house (with my niece) while we ran later in the morning, my plans changed REAL quick.
5.5 miles @ 9:12 average pace and the prettiest colors.
Skye was also more than happy with the arrangement so she could party with her cool cousin while we were gone.
Later on in the day we decided that some more time outside was necessary.
Brooke and Beretta couldn’t resist getting in some running while we were there.
And Skye tried to bring home every rock that she saw.
Our next stop was to meet up with a good friend of mine. Her little girl used to come home with us after preschool back in the day so they were really close and beyond happy to be reunited.
The highlight of my food yesterday were these Pillsbury Orange Rolls. They were another need, not a want.
Here’s to hoping that the new baby picks up my sleeping DNA that Brooke and Skye have inherited from me. They ASK to go to bed at night ha. PS their tie-dye pjs are my favorite.
PPS Skye had the hiccups at the same time the baby was having hiccups and they were pretty much synchronized.
I look up to Stephanie Bruce for a million reasons but her IG post the other day reminded me of one of my favorite reasons:.
Molly and Sarah both had incredible races in London and they both walked away with new personal bests. Those two women are Stephanie’s competition. Stephanie could have looked at their performances in London as a threat to her that they are just getting faster and faster while she did not have a personal best in the marathon this year. She could have felt bad about herself for seeing them perform so well when she didn’t race this last weekend. She could have not posted about their successes but she was genuinely happy for them to overcome so much to get where they are today. From what I see/read, Stephanie didn’t see what Molly and Sarah did as a threat to her in the slightest. She saw it as… I’M GOING TO COME TOO! She wants to work hard and join them in these successes and that is really awesome.
It’s easy to feel threatened when we see (especially on social media I think) others succeed when we haven’t hit a pr or a goal in a long time. It’s easy to feel defeated that others are hitting their dreams when we aren’t. BUT the best thing we can do and put our energy towards is to celebrate their successes and be inspired to JOIN THEM in the successes. <— Success is incredibly contagious when we do it this way!
Just one question today because I really want to hear your answers on this one—> What is something you are feeling grateful for today?
