Okay, that for REAL was the last time we are staying in a hotel with Skye until she is 15. I don’t know what it is about hotel rooms but they just bring out Skye’s desire for all-nighters so we will only be using Airbnbs from here on out.
My plan Friday night was to go to a track and do 400s but due to the previous mentioned hotel fiasco I was not feeling a structured workout when I left the hotel.
Luckily, as the miles went on I felt better and better and decided to make up a workout as I went. I jumped on some trails to trash my legs with 600 ft of climbing in about 2.5 miles and then when I got back to the road I decided to do an all-out mile down. I love getting my legs tired on the trails and then testing them on the roads for a little speed… doing this makes you feel like you are in the last mile of a race so it really tests you. My goal was sub 6 for that mile and I squeaked under in 5:58 so I was very happy about that.
I love a good training plan or workouts planned out in advance but sometimes I just want to make something up as I go and have fun with it. 8 miles total @ 8:18 average.
Vernal is about 1k ft higher in elevation than where I live so I considered Saturday my altitude training;)
Oh and I listened to this episode from Ali with Des Linden right after she set the 50k record, it’s an awesome episode.
This picture was taken as an excuse to stop and take a break to catch my breath.
I did a really great job packing… 2 right hand gloves that don’t match.
It has been a very long time since Brooke’s last continental breakfast. NOTHING makes her happier than going down the elevator in pajamas to load up on a mix of all of her favorite breakfast items.
PSA announcement, dimples are normal. Wear your shorts and wear them proudly.
The reason we were in Vernal was for my nephew. He was going to one of our church’s temples for his first time so we all went to support him. This nephew has had quite a few challenges throughout his life and I know it meant a lot to him to have his entire support group there just to celebrate him.
He loves Andrew so much and they have a really special friendship.
PS it was just our family’s group there:
All 5 siblings together with my parents! I think we all got the height gene from my dad;)
Just a gorgeous Spring day!
It looks like Beck is trying to communicate something to us in this photo ha.
Brooke and Skye are lucky to have so many cousins to look up to.
Today is our FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY since our first date! I remember being so incredibly burned out on dating and just wanting to retire from that whole thing but that changed the second I met Andrew. We were set up on a blind date and things just clicked with us. Somehow these five years have gone by so fast (remember when I first introduced him here?).
Maybe we need to go to Outback and relive our first date again today… I just remember on the drive back to my townhouse feeling SO excited when he mentioned that we should go on a run together that weekend. It meant I secured another date with him:)
Traveling—> (in the past or now)… do you prefer a hotel, airbnb or another option?
Have any siblings? How many?
Do you look more like your mom or your dad or a mix?
Those of you in a relationship.. how long has it been since your first date?
