10 miles @ 8:06 average pace with Emilee on a mostly flat road to start off my week. There were a few tiny tiny hills over the miles and each time I arrived at one my legs hurt so bad because they are still sore from the weekend.
And the outtake from our self-timer photo experience together.
The day started earlier with the crew in the mountains.
I have an IG campaign I’m working on and had photos taken there and thought it would be fun to have the photographer take a family running picture while we were there. I’m excited to see how it turns out and to make it life-size and hang it up on our wall.
Andrew was feeling pretty drained because he had to fast for a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. He’s talked about his heart hypertension HERE and his appointment went really well.
Now let’s get chatting about some tangents!
*Not sure why I was trying to get in some leaps while trail running the other day but the wild flowers everywhere on the trail were the prettiest.
*Skye loves Target as much as I do.
*I don’t like my baked goods/bread/toast/anything to be anything darker than light brown but when it comes to brussels… I LOVE the burnt pieces. I could eat an entire tray of them. Still loving Shalane’s quinoa recovery salad and adding random things to it too.
*I’ll watch any and every documentary out there and when we were watching this one on Netflix, ‘Last Blockbuster,’ it brought back a fun running memory! When I was in high school my sister was living in a small town in Wyoming. During the summer I would go out and stay a few weeks with her. She didn’t have a car there and her oldest was a baby but she had a jogging stroller and that is how we got around. We were HOOKED on the show ‘Alias’ and for the time I was there she bought a Blockbuster membership where we could rent one DVD at a time as many times as we wanted. Each day we would run the few miles to Blockbuster to return an Alias disk and pick up another and run back to her apartment to watch it. I wonder how many miles we ran that summer back and forth to Blockbuster ha.
*She is pretty thrilled to have a new pair of running shoes… the addiction starts young over here.
*Whenever I have a card to give someone I have Andrew write it because his handwriting is so much better than mine and it is actually legible, mine is not.
*Another reason I love Sam’s Club? They sell the large tubs of PB m&ms. Our Costco only offers the peanut M&Ms which don’t hold a candle to the pb variety in my educated M&M opinion. I find myself in the pantry often for these.
*It takes a village. Skye is back to getting out of her crib a million times a night but we found a solution. We FaceTime my sister and my sister talks to her and then boom, Skye goes to bed and stays in her crib. My sister knows that I REALLY need her to answer the phone if I am Facetiming her anytime after 8 pm ha. It’s always our last hope;)
Give me your honest opinion… What are the best M&M’s?
How often do you write with a pen/pencil? I feel like I only type these days!
Give me a fun memory from your earlier running days please! Did you used to be a Blockbuster frequent visitor?
Give me a documentary to watch, they are my favorite!
