Seven miles @ 8:37 average and feeling hot when it was only 55 degrees?! How did those of you that did the New York City Marathon survive in those conditions? So. Strong.
No filter… the light coming up above this mountain in the morning was something else. Running allows me to see so many things I wouldn’t normally see (because I would still be in bed).
I then went and had my hair colored, and went darker than I have in a while. I always feel so fresh (and I consider taking the week off of running so I don’t mess it up;) after a haircut and color.
I’ve been making Megan’s Chicken Cream Cheese Chili since 2012 and will continue making it for many more decades.
Time for some tangents:
*My friend is part of a salad club and I thought it was the best idea…. There are eight members of the group, and each month, they each choose a day (they do T/TH each week) to make and deliver salads to everyone for lunch—such a fun way to try new recipes and only have to prep once for eight meals.
*When I was watching the NYC Marathon, it was the first time I heard the story about ‘The Six Who Sat.’ I teared up hearing about how they sat at the starting line because they weren’t allowed to start with the men (they wanted them to either start 10 minutes before or 10 minutes after). They waited there on the ground, to begin with the men, to help bring bring change and equality for females in the racing world. I can’t believe that was JUST 50 years ago. So grateful for women like these:
*I have a thing where I really like to try new chips. I give these a 7.1/10, and you can taste that stuffing strongly, so it is perfect for this month.
*I’m hoping and praying that Andrew doesn’t change his mind and think we need to do this now…
*How Andrew prefers zero chocolate on his half of the pumpkin or banana bread will never make sense to me.
*Andrew and I were at lululemon (of course ha) the other day and we ran into my high school health teacher! He was the reason I wanted to be a health teacher (I want to go back to teaching again eventually too) and he made a huge impact in my life. Twenty years later and I still remember his amazing lessons and it was so fun to tell him that.
Brooke loves to play school with Skye so she might be a teacher someday too.
*Brooke has requested that I keep my nails long for the rest of my life because of the head scratches.
*Skye asked me why dogs don’t have seatbelts. She has a point.
*Beck and Skye call my Core Power ‘Mama’s Baba.’ They see me with it every morning of my life, so it makes sense.
Have any tangents for today?
Dog people–> do your dogs like the car?
-Beretta loves it and makes herself comfortable right away.
Are you a chip person? Do you like trying new flavors?
Long nails or short nails??
