8.23 miles @ 8:20 average with Emilee!
I did this before I started my run. I’m starting to really feel like maybe my weekly mileage will drop a bit so I can fit more in of some of these really important things….
Back to doing affirmation cards with the kids each morning while they eat breakfast…
We just had Knox for a few hours so my nephew made sure to come over first thing in the morning to say goodbye to him.
And then after swim lessons a lot of us met to eat lunch together before he leaves.
My dad is currently on treatments for his cancer but he was still able to be there which meant a lot to my nephew.
Nashville is going to love him and we are all going to miss him WAY too much.
I’m having a hard time processing him being gone because he has been such a constant and source of joy in my life for the last 18 years. This hurts.
We will be sending him a lot of letters and FaceTiming with him!
He will be gone for a little less than two years and when he gets back Beck will be a toddler running around.
We then walked around BYU and I told the girls about some of my favorite college memories.
Another highlight from the day was going to a yoga class with Brooke. I found a studio that does family classes and so I took her there on a little date. We will absolutely be back, it was a blast and very playful.
We hit up Great Harvest right after…
The Ghost 14s—> I am serious when I say if I had to choose one pair of running shoes to wear for the rest of my life, these would be it.
I know many of you are Ghost fans and I’m excited to tell you I think these are their best versions yet. They provide a smoother than ever ride. The comfort in these is unreal while still being a light enough shoe that you can get really moving. The midsole of the 14s is 100% DNA LOFT (the perfect combo of foam, rubber & air) which makes each step feel cushioned and springy. You’ll feel like you are floating in them.
The upper portion of the shoe feels like it fits even better now, keeping my foot in place and secure throughout my stride <— the mesh upper offers some stretch so it adjusts to YOUR foot perfectly.
They are the perfect everyday trainer but I have also worn them for tempo miles and they work great for that too. They are the dream long-run shoe. They offer the perfect amount of flexibility as you are pushing off the ground while still giving you stability and keeping your foot in line.
I get more miles out of my Ghosts than any other shoe that I use. They are like that best friend that is constant, has your back every day and sticks with you through it all (not sure if that analogy makes sense ha).
Just in case you’ve ever wondered why they are called the Ghost. I LOVE knowing the backstory of products.
Just thought I would share a picture of me with my first pair of Brooks ever.
I bought these in January of 2011… Brooks and I have shared a lot of miles over the last decade together.
Do you live close to family? If not, how often do you see them?
Do you remember what your first pair of running shoes were?
Has there been anything that you’ve added to your routine that has benefited you?
Are you missing anyone lately?
