We are starting our drive to Arizona today, it will take us two days to get there because we need to split up the drive for everyone’s sanity;) We are going to stay at my brother’s house for a few days for our Spring Break and the kids cannot wait for all of the cousin time and pool time!
But first, let’s chat about yesterday…
9.32 miles @ 8:36 average to start the week off.
Spring Break day #1 activity—> the park! I’m not sure how we went without parks for so many months last year.
Beck and I hung out in the shade.
The rest of the day was spent packing and getting everyone to eat any food in the fridge that might spoil while we are gone ha!
I was happy to take care of the carrot cake in our fridge from my in-laws, I was not going to let that go to waste.
Let’s discuss some important tangents!
*Isn’t it weird that when we are now signing up for races our first thought is that we hope that the race will actually happen?! Before 2020 it never crossed my mind that when signing up for a race there was a chance that the race wouldn’t be happening… there was always the possibility that I wouldn’t make it to the starting line if I got injured or something like that but now we just always wonder if the race is actually going to happen!
*Cinnamon sugar + butter + toast, another great pre-run food for me.
*Speaking of packing, Megan posted this and it is exactly how I was packing for a 3 day trip haha.
*When we were in Vegas a while ago Andrew told me to try Raising Cane’s while he was golfing because in his opinion, he thinks it is better than Chic-fil-A (<— my current favorite meal.. I always get the #1). We tried Cane’s and I was very disappointed in Andrew for liking it more than Chic-fil-A?! There is just something about these waffle fries and their sauce that beats out every other fast food option for me. I can’t get enough.
*If I am warm and horizontal, I will fall asleep within 60 seconds. Andrew is always so jealous because it takes him an hour some nights to fall asleep.
*INCREDIBLE. Ruth Chepngetich finished in 1:04:02… 29 seconds faster than the previous half marathon world record!
*I tend to chafe much more often when I am running in the heat (all of the sweating:)! A few years ago a reader told me to try this Dove on the spots where I chafe and it works like a DREAM. If I put this on first, I do not chafe!
*Have a happy Tuesday!
For those of you that have tried Raising Cane’s Chicken and Chic-fil-A… which one is better in your opinion? What would you say is the best fast food spot?
How long does it usually take you to fall asleep at night?
Ever chafe while you run? What helps you the most with it?
If somebody came to you telling you that they were going to run ONE half-marathon and it was the only race they were ever going to do… WHAT half-marathon would you tell them that they have to do because it’s the best in your opinion?
