I convinced Andrew to join me for 5 miles @ 8:41 pace… He was really happy about it;)
And then for dinner we were invited over to eat with one of the Piano Guys!
It’s race day tomorrow ahhhh!
Let’s move on to some of my favorite things from this week:
*This episode of the Armchair Expert. It offers so many interesting things about anxiety and awesome points that could help us with any anxiety we feel about upcoming races too–> “You are going to feel terrible. Your heart is going to race. You are going to feel these feelings but this is not you getting ready to fail. This is your body preparing to act. This is your heart pumping blood and oxygen to your brain so that you can be at peak performance. You are about to win.” Look at anxiety as a potential ALLY!
*I’ve tried A LOT of face shavers over the years (peach fuzz central!) and this one trumps all of them (the blades are replaceable). It smooths out everything so well!
*The way that I cope (which is probably not a healthy way;) for the change in weather and knowing what is up ahead… is buying a cute sweatshirt. I can justify it because Brooke will be able to wear it in the next few years so it’s basically 2 for 1 (ps my nieces are NOT happy with the idea that Brooke will be taking over my closet;). I have this one in a different color and I wore it a ton last year so I know this will be getting a lot of use.
Favorite drink lately?
