61 degrees. 61. We were sweating and I felt like I needed a drink of water every half mile. It felt foreign but it was SO welcomed.
9 miles with Emilee @ 8:14 pace according to my watch and 8.99 miles according to Strava haha.. It often tells me I am just .01 away from hitting the mile.
Andrew has been going to play soccer with my brother-in-law for his exercise a few times a week and he is loving that. Running to chase after a ball is much more fun in his opinion than just running.
We hung outside for a bit together and Beck wore his first EVER shortsleeved shirt:)
Skye rode around our driveway on her scooter with her rain boots.
It was a ‘drive around in the car and pickup chick-fil-a for lunch while Skye took a nap in the car’ kind of a day.
And of course a whole lot of this happened.
And now for a few tangents….
*Andrew and I have a game we play with our refrigerator. When we are filling up our waterbottles we try to see how long each person can go chugging water through the straw to keep up with the water that is coming into the bottle without it overflowing. We usually start laughing really hard and water goes everywhere but it’s a great way to get in some water really fast.
*Remember how my kids were all stung multiple times by hornets last year? Skye is still REALLY afraid of them now and if she see’s anything resembling a hornet then she is in my arms the rest of the time while we are outside. Anybody have any tips to help her overcome this?
*Andrew sent me this article… did anybody else hear about this mouthpiece? I have no idea if it actually works or not but I’m a BIG fan of the placebo effect. If I think a piece of gear is going to make me faster than my brain makes me run faster ha.
*Turns out a pop tart is excellent fuel for me before a run. We were out of bananas and bread so I grabbed a pop tart and it did the trick.
*Our Sunday dinner—> We had leftover meat and leftover pico so we made a tray of nachos and it was gone in about 4 minutes. We love nacho trays.
*The kids have a small activity that they are going to this week for church. I told Skye I would be going with them to sit in the back and watch but she told me I can’t go. I just need to drop her off and leave. She told me not to worry, she will hold Brooke’s hand.
She thinks she is 15.
*I’m really excited about this. I bought a pasta maker and would love any tips or recipes from those of you that make homemade pasta!
Any pieces of gear or tricks that have the placebo effect on you and help you to run faster?
Pop tarts—> delicious or gross? Have a favorite flavor?
Have a fear of any particular insects or animals?
Team water bottle or team cups when it comes to getting your water in?
-I can’t remember the last time I used a cup and my sister never uses a water bottle.
