The other day my sister told me that her running lately feels like one big game of Chutes and Ladders.
This last week (ehhh month) kind of felt like one of those chutes times! This past winter/spring I was out the door to do big workouts and seeing a lot of improvements and the last little bit it feels like I’m sliding back. On Saturday, I left to do six mile repeats and I ended up doing just one. Once school is back in session and the temperatures cool down I’ll get back to some bigger workouts but for Saturday, 1 mile repeat was all that I had in me.
Those ladder moments in our running game make the chutes totally worth it and if we stay consistent we luckily get more ladder moments than chutes!
Skye struggled each night Brooke was gone (it was so sad… she loves sharing a room with her and talking to her until they fall asleep each night) but I think during the day she enjoyed a little more one-on-one time while Beck was napping.
Andrew and I got out for a fun date. First, we needed fuel and I went with the steak rice bowl from 180 Tacos.
We decided a bit ago that we wanted to try to up our dating game and try new things together and get out of our normal date routines. I did not join Andrew for the part where he jumped in the river but I blamed that on washing my hair earlier that day ha.
I rollerbladed and he skateboarded in the canyon. My glutes were on fire by the end of this. It felt so good to be outside together.
Another highlight of the day was meeting up with Sarah. She is that friend of mine that I went to Thailand and London with… She is the most adventurous human. She currently lives in Switzerland and I NEED to visit her there because she says the trail running is incredible.
We met to go on a hike (and we never found the trail we were supposed to be on but we tend to always get lost when we are together) and then we grabbed some dinner at Sundance afterward. This friendship has just gotten better and better with time… 21 years now!
The best burger in the world is at Sundance IMO. I don’t even look at the menu anymore because I just love this burger so much. Their brussels are also a MUST if you ever go there. We ate outside and felt that chill mountain air that makes you need a jacket and it was just what I needed.

A normal Sunday over at our house.
Watching the leg turnover of the track Olympic athletes… Inspirational!
Brooke came home which felt so so good. My sister-in-law took Brooke to California this time because she has a sister there she was wanting to visit. It was so nice of her and they had a great time together.
Shortly after we went to the doctor because we realized Beck could have an ear infection and the poor guys does?
Does running ever feel like you are playing chutes and ladders too?
DATE IDEAS… Give us some fun ideas, please!
If you could live anywhere in the world… Where would you go or would you stay where you are?
-Andrew and I want to move around once our kids are older (and we don’t share custody)!
What was the best thing you ate over the weekend?
