When I woke up yesterday, I checked the weather, and it said it was 60 degrees. I put on a tank and shorts and left the house. About ten minutes into the run, I passed by a school where they have a board that tells the time and temperature, and it said it was 42 degrees… INSTANTLY I felt really cold, and I checked my phone, and I had been looking at the weather in St. George when I woke up. When I thought it was warmer than it was outside, I didn’t feel cold, but as soon as I knew how cold it was, I realized I was frozen. This is why I love to repeat to myself, “I am comfortable” when I am hurting during a run because I can trick myself into thinking it is true ha.
8.14 miles at 8:29 average pace!
Skye had her last day of preschool!
Beck and I were pretty lazy while everyone else was gone. But I did get in some rolling.
And some stretching. I remember years ago, I would never do downward dog in shorts because I didn’t like seeing the dimples/cottage cheese on the front of my legs whenever I do this. I look at those dimples now (and post pictures of them on the internet even though the pic is blurry because taking a picture of your legs while doing this stretch is hard ha) and feel nada. Your body is an instrument, not an ornament! <— Read this book if you struggle with body image!
After I picked up Skye, we celebrated her last day with donuts on the driveway.
This little chair is pretty special to me. I spend a lot of hours sitting in it each week. The kids love riding their bikes/scooters on our driveway and the street, and I love sitting there watching them. It’s simple, but I know I will miss this chair sitting on the driveway thing when they are all grown up.
And now for a few random topics before I let you go…
*I read this fact to Andrew, and he said I would probably spend 32 hours of my life asleep, and he will spend about 10 (he hates sleep)…
*I washed my hair yesterday and realized I am going to save a lot of money on shampoo and conditioner now that I will always be keeping it short.
*Beck can sit all on his own now!
*I saw this on Megan’s IG and I just need to change the caption to, ‘MY ENTIRE LIFE I THOUGHT THEY JUST HAD HUNDREDS OF TOWELS.’ I always wondered how they folded them so perfectly haha. Please tell me I am not the only one that realizes things like this in adulthood haha…
*How do you make friends as an adult?
I have stayed close with a few friends from high school/college/living in California/blogging, I meet friends now from running or my neighbors, and if I am with another adult during the day other than Andrew, it’s usually my sister! I was wondering how you guys make friends during this time of life. PS thank you for being my friend over the years… now to just find a way for us all to move to a community where we get to run together every day!
And a flashback picture to my first friends ha… and my dad, but he was taking the picture:)
And a special thank you for reading through 30 different topics in one post.
What about you… How do you make friends as an adult?
Would you rather have a lot of friends or just a few close friends?
Placebo effect moments for you in life or running?
Anything recently that you finally understood that you maybe should have known a while ago?
