Yes this might look like a staged running photo but this below scene is actually happening multiple times a day… I cannot keep up with her.
I did 8.27 miles with Emilee at an 8:18 average pace in the sunshine and it felt so good. My legs also no longer felt like cement which I welcomed with open arms.
Just as Skye’s black eye was healing, she fell off a stool and now has a goose egg on her forehead. I cannot keep up with her.
We had a big first yesterday. Beck had his first haircut. His hair was growing over his ears so my sister cut the sides a bit.
It took me back to when my sister gave Brooke her first haircut. TIME IS FLYING….
PS my sister is currently building her own bookcases to go along her living room wall and she will also be putting in some window seats too. She amazes me.
A bit later we got in our favorite drive to help Skye to get in a really good nap.
And then we got out the pickle ball court in our driveway. The rest of the day was just a blur. Sometimes I get into bed at night and wonder how in the world the whole day can just zoom by so quickly.
Time for a few tangents to talk about:
*My running friend Jenn sent this to me and I had to share it with you. We were talking about our running goals the other day on a run and I love this visual. Make those big goals but on your way there, celebrate all of the tiny steps along the way (and remember you might go backwards at times too).
*The above Jenn also sent me this muffin recipe and it is the easiest and so good. It was the perfect after school snack and the girls devoured them—> Healthy Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins.
*We bought our chickens because I was freaked out when the shelves at our grocery store were empty but now I am so thankful for them because they are so good for our kids. The kids gather eggs every day, feed them and clean the coop. It’s been a great way to teach them to work plus they love those little (I guess they aren’t that little anymore ha) animals so much. And now we eat eggs all day every day.
*Remember how the Ironcowboy completed 50 Ironmans in 50 states in 50 consecutive days? Well now he is going for 100 Ironmans in 100 consecutive days! It starts on March 1st and he will be doing the triathlons on the same route each day in our area… We are definitely going to have to go cheer him on!
What is your run today? Give me the details!
Tell me one of your BIG running goals… I love knowing these things.
Do you or have you ever had a pet that wasn’t super traditional (ie other than cats or dogs)?
What’s your favorite type of muffins and/or do you have a recipe you love so I can make it?
