I think the best way to start off this Wednesday morning is to share pics from Beck’s photoshoot. Andrew’s cousin is an amazing photographer in case you are in the area and need somebody! He is taking our family pictures tomorrow wahoo.
Somehow he is already 2 months and 2 days old!
Brooke was so excited because she was the one to get him to smile in this picture below:)
Now to just convince Andrew we need a few more of him;). Yes, I already forgot how ridiculously hard pregnancy is ha.
Let’s chat now about Tuesday for a bit. Monday night/Tuesday morning were crazy with the kids so an early morning run like I had planned just wasn’t possible. Kids have REALLY helped me to let go of control (not sure if you have noticed but I have a strong addiction to routine) and to be more flexible and go with the flow. The run ended up happening a few hours later than I had planned and it turned out to be one of my favorite runs in a long time.
I stopped twice to skate across some ice and another time to talk to two running friends that I used to train with that I ran into along the trail.
The sun was out, the trail was as flat as possible and a change of scenery really made it a great run.
There was a strong headwind on the way out and an even stronger tailwind on the way back which helped my legs to really turnover again on the flat!
THANKS MOM FOR THE RUN! When we were packing up to go Skye told me she was just going to stay with my mom for the rest of the day.
Beck warmed me up when I got back because he sleeps hot!
We played some hide and seek and Skye is positive that if she can’t see us then we can’t see her.
And a huge highlight of the day was picking up shakes to eat in the hot tub once the kids all went to sleep. A very successful way to end the day.
Are you good at going with the flow of things and being flexible or are you working on it like me?
Would you rather always have to run a flat route or always have to run a hilly route?
Would you rather have a baked good for a treat or some sort of frozen treat like the above shake?
Question from Andrew—> do you like surprises or not so much?
