It felt like we were running through sand for eight miles but hearing the crunch with each step was so much fun.
These are by far the best gloves I have ever used for running. My fingers get so cold when I am running, but the temps were in the teens yesterday, and my fingers felt toasty the whole time in these.
Skye is pretty upset (as am I) that we didn’t get Taylor Swift tickets, so she asked if she could write her a letter to see if we could have some of the extra ones.
What happens when you get a ride home from school in the winter (the roads were clear by the afternoon):
Mel’s cheesy breadsticks, creamy tortellini soup (with chicken instead of sausage), and pears were the perfect dinner. I know the lighting is really making it look so appetizing, but I promise it all tasted so good.
Also, her one-hour breadsticks are excellent too.
It turns out I’ve influenced Skye too… LIQUID IV + a Maurten water bottle.
He is doing his best to stay bundled up this time of year.
Ummm, how am I just learning this?
Today’s random running thought…
Have you ever paid attention to the story you have come up with about your running? Is your story that you are weak and not strong enough to hit your goal? Is your story that you are getting stronger each day and that you can do hard things? Is your story that you are a quitter? Is your story that you own those hills and have so much to look forward to ahead? Is your story that you are too old for this? Is your story that you have found your thing and won’t let obstacles hold you back?
Whatever story you tell yourself, you will search and find the evidence to prove that your story is correct.
Let’s choose the story that takes us closer to our goals! The story that allows us to see how tough we are and the one that reminds us that we are enough!
And I’ll finish off with an old picture of the girls running because I love it so much.
Also, good luck to everyone running CIM this weekend. Have the race of your life!
