I have never been much of an afternoon runner (let alone any time past 9 a.m. runner) but because of our new schedules with Andrew’s school, it looks like it might work out nicely a time or two each week.
5.39 miles @ 8:31 pace.
I always thought it was impossible for me to run in the afternoon (although, I did do doubles in 2019 for my training a few times) but it’s kind of really nice and awesome. My favorite part of it is the fact that the afternoons are the warmest part of the day which means I’m getting some much needed Vitamin D. It also means that I can convince my sister to go with me (she is not into the dark and cold mornings thing) and we ended at Brooke’s school so that we could walk home with her.
Another really nice part of afternoon running is a calm morning snuggled up on the couch with whoever is awake. Brooke couldn’t take her eyes off of her book for the picture.
The highlight food-wise of the day was this meal from Beehive Meals (they gave me a code in case you want to try it—> hungryrunnergirl10 will get you $10 off). They make dinner life extremely easy and delicious.
We added some pasta and roasted broccoli and loved it.
And now it’s time for some pictures on my phone that I haven’t blogged yet…
*Why use apples to get the peanut butter into your mouth when you can just use a spoon?
*My sister had us over for a salad bar the other day and it was fantastic.
*Seeing Beck with a beanie on brings me so much joy.
*I’ve been reading and watching Youtube videos about cake decorating because I really want to get good at it. The girls are wanting to join me in this new hobby so the other night they decorated their very own cake.
They were so proud (Skye did the sprinkles:).
*Question… Has anybody seen these in stores or do I need to spend $12 on one package from Amazon to give to Brooke ha. I have looked in 4 different stores for them and no luck. Also, has anybody tried these and are they good?
* I’ll be watching this tonight! The Courage to Run with Chip Gaines and Gabe Grunewald is a documentary on Discovery+ and they offer a one week free trial if you want to watch it.
What are your feelings about Oreos and do you like the limited edition versions? Which one is your favorite?
What supplements do you take if you take any? Who takes Vitamin D?
Last show or documentary or movie that you watched?
Anybody else enjoy afternoon runs?
-Realizing that I like them is making me wonder if I could like evening runs too;)
