Today I will be sharing a lot of randomness, which is exactly how my brain works so let’s get started…
My run on Saturday was a realllllly good one. I decided to not wake up and run before Andrew went to work and get my niece to babysit during Beck’s nap instead. I am very thankful that Beretta is always happy to join me on a trail run and that I don’t need to give her any warning beforehand about the adventure. She never says no to these runs.
Beretta had no clue why in the world I would stop her from playing in the snow for a selfie….
PS I still can’t find my running leash for Beretta so I need to get a new one.
PPS just some blueberry in my teeth from blueberry pancakes with the girls before I left.
PPPS trail running really does feel like play to me and I’m glad I spent the $ to go play for 76 minutes.
The scenery was unreal. I love winter running so much as long as it isn’t below 20 degrees. My eyes were definitely tired by the end of the run because of how bright the snow was.
Beretta helped me (ehhh forced me) to go faster on the trails than I normally do and I did 8 miles @ 9:31 average pace with 1145 ft of climbing. I finished up with 3501 ft of climbing for the week which I haven’t done for over a year which was exciting for me.
Next time I run snowy trails I will be wearing longer socks, my ankles were frozen by the end.
And now for the bullet points…
*Once Beck has a hold of my hair, it is near impossible to get him to let go of it.
*I’m glad Skye could help out with her animal’s injuries.
*She inherited her love for mixing cereals and using a huge spoon to eat her cereal from me.
*No gloves during a morning run in January?! That felt strange.
*The other day I sent this text and picture to my pacer from my ultra and his reply was perfect for runners. The things we do are so hard (and sometimes dumb ha) yet we keep wanting to do them over and over again.
*This tip is going to save me a lot of money. I can’t tell you how many running socks I lose a year but I feel like I am constantly buying new pairs each time I go to our running store. My friend Amber taught me the perfect solution to this problem. Before she puts her running socks in the wash she safety pins them together and boom, they are always together and easy to grab.
*He just started to let out little giggles!
*Beck keeps searching for his thumb so he might be a thumb sucker and a binky lover.
*They each had homework to get done at the kitchen counter (and surprise sighting—> Andrew wearing pants!).
*General Mills sent me a package with their newest DunkAroos cereal and they also esent a DunkAroo too… seeing this took me WAYYYYY back to elementary school and feeling like I hit the jackpot if my mom had put one of these in my lunch.
Any snacks/foods/drinks remind you of your elementary school or childhood days?
Mixing cereals… delicious or a terrible idea? Have a favorite combo?
What was something running wise that you said you would NEVER do again yet you did it again?
I would love to hear a random tangent from you… they are my favorite!
