You know that nightmare that all runners have about sleeping through their alarm clocks for a big run or race? It happened to me in real life yesterday. Andrew and I SLEPT THROUGH FOUR ALARMS. I woke up on my own 5 minutes before my friends were all getting to my house to carpool up to the trails. Luckily, I had everything set out from the night before so I could still be on time but I was really stressed when I first woke up.
I would have been very bummed if I had slept through this…
I was very happy that the only other living thing that we came across were these massive caterpillars.I am now pretty terrified of coming across another rattlesnake. I’ll take the caterpillar.
Have I convinced you to come out to Utah yet?
12 miles total @ 10:12 average with 2100 ft of climbing and only two falls in the group along the way… ouch.
The rest of the day was spent outside too, just the way we like it.
I have a few Friday Favorites:
*My new daily sunglasses for every hour until sundown after the run. I love them so much. Even if it is cloudy and basically dark outside, I have sunglasses on.
*Another really great amazon find. The best shower brush. It is hygienic, cheap and it provides a great scrub. I bought one for each person in the family.
*Liz shared this movie with me and it made me cry… so incredible. GOALS.
*The current best candy on the market.
*A super simple game to take to the park. The circle Brooke is holding is like a mini trampoline and you hit the ball back and forth. It is so much fun and easy for anyone to play.
*This iPhone tip from Lauren!
Any favorites from this week?
Who has come across a snake on the run? Did it freak you out?
Have a long run or race this weekend?
Ever sleep through your alarm?
-Normally I don’t but we must have been very tired.
