Now and then I have a strong desire to just run every day in the mountains with friends.
Train in the mountains + race on the roads sounds like the perfect running combo IMO;)
Maybe in a few years, I’ll be able to be in the mountains every day, but until then, I will soak up each time I do get the chance to go.
There was a pretty bad fire in this area last year, but seeing new life grow again is a beautiful message of hope to me.
Although, the animal part of the mountains is not my favorite part.
We climbed 1400 ft total over the 8 miles and mile 4 was most definitely the hardest—> 417 ft of up in one mile. There was zero talking occurring during that mile, it was all about survival for me.
Seeing this rock pile at the top is a very beautiful sight to see because it means you get to rest, breath and it’s all downhill from there.
After the run I went straight to the grocery store to fill up our refrigerator again. I am a speed shopper when I am there without kids.
My niece is the best babysitter ever.
Beck and Skye were still snoozing…
Beck reaches out for Brooke to hold him all of the time…
We were able to go to Skye’s school and meet with her teacher.
Yesterday morning after my run I couldn’t stop thinking about blueberry muffins… fast forward a few hours and they were giving out blueberry muffins at Skye’s school. How did they know I needed one of these so bad?
And for dinner, I made one of my favorite easy dinners. French bread + butter + garlic + fresh mozzarella cheese + garden tomatoes (thanks, Jenn!) + balsamic glaze + fresh basil (after the pic). I could eat this every single day.
We had our annual fashion show tradition. I buy the tops and bottoms for their school clothes and then they choose whatever combo they want to wear each day.
PS I had this ad pop up on Facebook the other day and it made me so sad… I’m not ready to need jackets again (although I really want this jacket ha). I want to see shorts ads again!
Ever see any snakes on your runs? If you did, would it freak you out?
Grocery shopping—> do you like to do it fast or browse the aisles? Or does it just depend?
-It depends on the store for me (at TJs I take my time) but usually I like to speed shop!
Favorite season of clothing (running and normal clothes)? You feeling ready for jacket weather?
What has been your goto breakfast these days? I’m needing a change big time.
