This week’s/month’s/year’s/life’s running task that I need you to do—> Try complimenting yourself at least once during your run. It can be anything from how your last mile went, your form, your breathing, how good you are at singing while running, your calves, your arms swinging strong, sticking to your plan… just try it! The way we talk to ourselves during the run can transform everything for us!

Let’s talk about some tangents…
*When your neighbor leaves the world’s largest blow pop, gummy worm and a candy cane on your doorstep… Now to leave some very loud toys for their kids to play with on their porch;)
*I loved what Sarah said last week. Really, we just have to start without thinking about the weather/how sore we are/how tired we are/how hard it is going to be… Ignorance is bliss:). I love avoiding thinking about it all as I am getting ready for a run/workout and just pushing START (on my Peloton or my Garmin). That is my favorite part about working out early, a lot of times I am not fully awake until mile 3;)
*They were both very happy with this situation.
*My sister had a cereal bar at her daughter’s party. The teenagers LOVED it!
*Brooke’s sewing is saving the day for all of us… Knox’s favorite tag (he loves rubbing it with his fingers as he falls asleep) on his favorite blanket fell off and Brooke sewed it back on.
*Another comment that I totally agreed with… NO WONDER SO MANY OF US ALL HATED RUNNING BACK THEN!
*One of my new favorite pictures.
*This apricot chicken and Broccoli recipe is exceptional.
*Came across this tip from my mom (that a friend printed out for me to read the night before a marathon).
*When my sister and I were younger we would draw sketches of our future homes that included a tunnel underground to connect our houses. Turns out somebody stole our idea and it is up for sale now. We just need to win the lottery really quickly so that we can buy it.
Share a tangent with me!
Did you have a favorite blanket or stuffed animal when you were a kid?
Who would you want to have the above mansions with that includes the underground tunnel?
Did you like running when you were younger? In PE?
