I had to keep reminding myself during my run yesterday that my best races in the past have happened after a week full of runs that felt terrible leading up to the race. I prefer to get a bunch of bad runs out of the way before the race so that I feel great on race day.
I always love finding random things on the side of a trail while running.
We went in to see Dr. Bennett for my plantar fasciitis.
And this picture made me very happy.
This felt good.
I love this pumpkin mix so so much. Not only does it taste amazing but it makes your house smell like heaven.
Let’s talk about some tangents!
*A running pic from our hike last week. Once upon a time Andrew and I ran this trail (Battlecreek) but hiking it felt like quite a workout last week.
*I now have a 9-passenger vehicle! My car history—> Almost four years ago, I was hit and my car was totaled. It was one of the scariest days of my life because Skye was just a few weeks old and she was in the car with me! I needed a new car and we bought a Highlander, which we loved. The only problem was that I didn’t realize how big my kids were going to get so quickly, and we were bursting at the seams in that car ever since we had Beck (especially whenever we had Beretta in the car too). We’ve been talking about getting a bigger car for a while now and were planning on getting one in the next year, but we stopped to look at a really good deal on a yukon on Friday and it was just what we needed. The thing I love the most is that we can now have space for nieces/nephews/kid’s friends with us in the car too. I am very excited about it.
*Skye loves it when it is my hair washing day because it means she can style my hair with bubbles before I shower.
*Did you see this? The Ironman World Championship has been held in Kona for the last four decades, but in 2022 it will be held in St. George! We will have to go and spectate!
*The other day Brooke was out running with me when the moon was still out. She told me that she could see why I love running at that time so much—> The world is just so peaceful and calm at this time of day.
*I cannot believe how social Skye is… She will gladly ditch Andrew and me in a heartbeat to go with a friend. She remembers the details and names of all of Brooke and Knox’s friends, and it always amazes me that she can form a strong bond with friends at three years old.
*Kim posted this the other day, and I just love it so much. Sleeping isn’t lazy, it’s taking care of ourselves!
Give me your car history. What have you found that you love/need in a car?
-SPACE and something that drives well in the snow because I am terrified of driving in the snow.
What are your thoughts about adding chocolate to pumpkin baked goods?
-Andrew is against it and I strongly believe that adding chocolate makes everything better.
Give me a tangent today!
Random question of the day—> do you make your bed every day, sometimes or rarely?
