I missed running a lot the last week. I am hooked.
I met up with a group of friends for some trails, and it was the best start to running again. This trail is called Middle Earth, and it’s on this blog post with the top 10 trails in this area.
8.18 miles @ 8:55 average with 915 feet of climbing. My body felt great during the run, and I’ll keep my runs at an easy pace for another week or two.
I took a tumble while we were out. I was running right behind someone, so I wasn’t looking down, and I tripped over a root. It didn’t hurt when it happened, but I felt it when I got home and saw my arm (seeing the pain makes me feel it more ha).
We spent a lot of the rest of the day outside. Warm weather parenting is my favorite type of parenting.
I have a few tangents to talk about today!
*It’s officially been six years since our first date! We went to Outback Steakhouse for our first date, and I can’t tell you how happy it made me when I got a text after the date from Andrew… We saw each other almost every day after that. It felt right from the very beginning.
Picture from our second date:
*Spring soccer games in Utah= it drops 20 degrees (a slight exaggeration) in an hour.
*With six soccer games, three soccer practices, and two cross-country practices a week, dinners are looking like this—> A quick stir fry over rice. This combo was a good one.
*Maddie let me know before Boston that she would still be my friend no matter what time I ran. The people that love us do not care about what time we run. Our people want us to be happy!
*We had no idea how much we would love our Peloton before buying it. Each of the blue circles is a day that Andrew rode the Peloton, and I am so happy to be adding it back into my training again.
*Beck wanted to give it a try.
*If I were running the Boston Marathon for fun, I would have brought a trick-or-treating bag to collect as many Maurten gels as possible. Those things are pricey, and they were giving so many of them out before the race and during.
*Does anybody remember ten years ago when I would post about my nieces and nephews walking on their toes like this… One of my nieces can still do it. My feet cramp up just watching this.
I’d love to hear a tangent from you!
Any random things you can do (like my niece’s above toe walking)?
Those in a relationship right now… What was your first date?
Ever fallen on the trails?
-I’m just glad I didn’t get a hole in my new running clothes that I was wearing… Andrew got them for me in Boston for an early Mother’s Day gift:)
