I have a new Beck Update—> ONE YEAR and end of a chapter that is kind of breaking my heart.
Story from the hike that went very wrong a few days ago.
I had the great idea to take the family on a hike to Stewart Falls without looking up the weather beforehand. The hike is about 3 miles total out and back, it is mostly flat, and you see a gorgeous waterfall. It’s a super popular hike in our area that the kids have done a bunch of times.
Moments after this picture is when things got rough…
Another picture before things got rough…
With another 1.5 miles to go, Beck started screaming, and that lasted pretty much the entire way back to the car because he was over hiking (sorry to the other hikers seeking a peaceful experience), Brooke slid on the mud and was covered in mud and her knee was bleeding, I tripped over a rock, Skye fell asleep on Andrew (sweet but also hard for him to carry her the whole way while also helping with Beck), and it started to rain pretty hard which made all of us ‘shorts wearers’ (aka everyone other than Beck) freezing.
But we survived and laughed pretty hard about it all on the drive home. We made hot chocolate the second we walked in the door.
PS it was pretty exciting to see dirt/mud on my shoes/feet again. It almost made me think I had just returned from a trail run. PPS I throw my dirty running shoes in the wash when this sort of thing happens to them.
Let’s chat about a few things from yesterday now…
Our day started in the best way possible. First thing in the morning, we heard someone at the door, and it was a cookie delivery guy. Brooke’s grandma (on her dad’s side) sent our family 12 of the prettiest cookies. It was the best way to start the day.
During Beck’s nap, Andrew joined me for a 20 minute lower body workout that left us both on the ground because our legs were so tired.
Before the strength, I did a 20 minute HIIT ride on the Peloton, and I was left shocked that such a short workout could work me so hard.
She looks so nice but she is killer. Time to clean my screen:)
Andrew decided to get his biking in outside… and sadly I think I’m more of an indoor biker only now, I love not worrying about flying over my handlebars ha.
Brooke is really wanting to be playing soccer more often which is kind of perfect because Andrew played in high school and has done some coaching since then. She’ll be doing indoor season soon and I cannot wait for it to start.
They made sure to have a lot of fun while they were playing too.
A new women’s half marathon world record—> 1:02:52! 4:47 average pace!
Yesterday’s candy chart of information made me want to research more. Do you agree with this chart and what your state’s favorite candy is? They say this chart is based off of 14 years of data.
Just one more reminder about a Beck update!
Do you ever wash your running shoes? Do you feel like it changes them?
What is your state’s favorite candy according to the chart, and do you agree with it?
-I’m having a hard time believing tootsie pops are #1 here. I would have thought Reese’s or Snickers for sure.
Are cookies/cookie shops a big thing in your area? If not, what is as far as desserts go?
What is the best part of your Tuesday going to be?
