A walker came around the corner just as I was taking this self-timer photo which felt very awkward but I made sure to make it more awkward when I explained that I’ve been taking running selfies every day for the last 10 years;).
Ummmm this 1/2 mile hurt big time.
Just the prettiest views the whole way. 9 miles @ 8:21 average pace.
Then we took the kids to a pool to get out a bunch of energy before driving home. Skye doesn’t ever put her head under water (she mostly just wants to sit on the steps and play with toys) but the goggles are a must for her.
And then we drove home and did laundry for the rest of forever;)
Let’s get things going with some tangents!
*THIS MADE ME SO SO HAPPY—> NATALIE IS ON THE COVER OF RUNNER’S WORLD. I’ve followed her online for years but I’ve also been able to get to know her in real life too and she is the best and deserves this big time.
*My first race back is about a month away so I checked out what my garmin is predicting for my 10k. My watch has never been good at predicting my race times… has yours?
*Dessert at my brother’s house this last weekend… They took the Brookie to the next level and in between the brownie and the cookie they added OREOS. Impressive.
*What do you think… good idea or bad idea to eat these right before a run? I think it would have been a bad idea if it was before a speed workout but they were a great idea before a trail run.
*Beck is 6. Months. Old. today. These 6 months have gone by faster than ever and I’m shocked that he is already this old.
*Just trying to fool him into thinking he married a great cook;). Air-fried mini tacos from Sam’s Club are as fancy as it gets some days.
*I forgot where I saw this but I relate so so fully to this right now.
*The other day I was feeling like I was failing in every aspect of my life (I know, dramatic but when I’m exhausted and hormonal… the thoughts go extreme). It sounds almost too simple and it doesn’t always magically fix everything but I went outside and within a few minutes I felt so much better. I don’t know what it is about being outside but it is so healing for me and it really helps me to reprioritize and calm down. Going outside always calms Beck down too if he is crying (and it did the same for Brooke and Skye when they were babies) so it’s really a win-win for everyone.
Has your watch ever done a good job at predicting your race times?
Who has a May birthday? A race this month?
How does going outside help you?
Tell me a tangent!!
