Yesterday’s run was made possible thanks to my mom…
Emilee met me at my parents’ house and we did 7 miles @ 8:27 average. We ran on the old bike trail that I used to run on every single day when I lived with my parents… Except for back then I was running on this trail at 5 a.m. every day so I didn’t get to see the gorgeous mountains as much.
We were also on the trail that the Iron Cowboy is using for his 26.2 miles. He is doing an Ironman each day for 100 days straight and he is currently on day #66!
I came back to a very happy little boy that had the best one-on-one time with grandma.
And the other three were at school!
I just need to bottle up the feeling of seeing her run to me after preschool… I try and remember these moments when she is waking me up in the middle of the night because she has an itch on her left pinky finger haha;)
I was on my way to TJ’s to buy a breakfast burrito (THEY ARE SO GOOD) to eat for lunch and then decided I just needed to make a big batch at home because I could happily eat a breakfast burrito each day of my life. Now I have 20 happily waiting for me to eat in the freezer.
I love this recipe! I follow the recipe except for adding an extra pepper and I use roasted sweet potatoes instead of tater tots. I also use the tortillas that you cook yourself (Tortilla Land—> they are sold in the refrigerated section near the cheese at the grocery store) because I think they taste so much better.
I’ll be using my air fryer to cook one of these up today!
We learned yesterday that it is impossible to go through this book of baby smiles without smiling ourselves… we tried 20 times.
We stopped by the duck pond too.
And dinner from one of the millions of screenshots I have taken…
Another day, another outfit selection from Skye.
Nina asked yesterday what my goal is for my 10k next month so I thought I would share it here too. Picture from the same 10k in 2019 and I finished in 38:14.
I would be beyond thrilled with coming in under 40 minutes next month, so that is my goal!
Running goals used to really terrify me. I would make a goal and partly believe in myself that I could do it but at the same time they would make my stomach churn just thinking about them because I was so worried about failing. It took me a few years of not reaching a lot of my goals to realize that there is nothing to be afraid of. Something I have to remind myself in all areas of life is—> Failing is an event, it doesn’t define us and we get the chance to keep working towards these goals until we reach them. Making a big goal is only going to make us faster because it helps us to reach for more rather than settle for less. The people that love us don’t love us any less when we don’t hit a certain time, we still get to lace up our shoes to try again when we fall short and those failures teach us a lot of lessons along the way! I’ll keep making running goals until my body doesn’t let me run anymore (which I’m hoping never happens)!
And to finish things off I just had to share a pic of my friend and her husband from this last weekend… They completed their first half-ironman on their 12 year anniversary! Amazing. And now she is trying to talk me into following in her footsteps but I would really need to take swimming lessons for a few years leading up to this sort of thing!
What is something that you would be okay eating every single day of your life?
What is something that instantly makes you smile when you see it?
How is your sleeping these days? Do you wake up in the middle of the night? Getting a lot, a little or somewhere in the middle?
Tell me a quick and easy meal that you have made recently!
