Beck joined me for ‘strength for runners 15 minute class’ on the Peloton app.
I ran 10 miles with friends on the trails with 1600 ft of climbing! When we turned a corner I saw a guy standing on the trail and I said, ‘I sure hope you aren’t looking at a mountain lion’ and it turns out that he was looking at a mountain lion up higher on the mountain… my heart rate went to 500 bpm. Luckily, I was with a big group of people and it was pretty far away.
I tried a cereal combo that just did not work. Life + Reese’s Puffs. I always mix my cereals but learned an important lesson that you need to only mix cereals that have a similar sogginess rate… The Puffs stay crunchy for a while, Life loses any crunch within seconds and while soggy cereal doesn’t bug me, I just need both cereals to be a similar texture when I am eating them together.
Beck started being very into his little cars and loves to take a few with him everywhere he goes!
We went on a little date together.
Andrew has been wearing his In-n-Out socks often… I bought them for him for Christmas:)
My parents had us over for this amazing raspberry cream cheese pie from Kneaders.
I watched Forrest Gump for the first time… I think I was the last person on the planet to watch it.
My older nieces (the ones from St. George were there too) REALLY included Brooke in all of the dancing at my niece’s brithday party and it made her feel like a million bucks. It was the best thing for me to see.
I signed up for the Buffalo 25k! I’m not so much focusing on speed for this one but just making it to my farthest distance since 2019 (the course is a bit longer than 25k… 16.59 miles and 1,921 ft of climbing according to Andrew’s garmin in 2019). Time to get training! This race director’s emails are always so funny:
We booked our first trip just the two of us that is ‘non-work & non-taking kids to their other parents’ house’ since our honeymoon! The kids will be going to stay at Andrew’s parents’ house and they are just as excited as we are!
Brooke started her indoor soccer league!
Fellow cereal mixers, what is your favorite combo? Crunchy, soggy or it doesn’t matter to you with your cereal?
What is the next race that you are signed up for?
What was the highlight of your weekend?
Is there a movie that you haven’t seen that pretty much everyone else has?
