MOST IMPORTANTLY, it is Andrew’s birthday today. I am so grateful for Andrew. He is my best friend, and I look forward to his days off so much to be able to hang out together all day. He makes everyone in our family’s world better… I cannot wait to spoil him today.
Okay, back to the run.
Running after the time change took so much strength and bargaining to get out of bed yesterday morning. That one-hour change made me feel like I had the flu for the first 6 miles. However, we did have some light at the end, and we heard birds chirping, which felt very strange after such a long winter.,
The kids didn’t have school yesterday!
And then we got everything ready for Andrew’s birthday, including some coconut cream pie:) It just needs the whipped cream and then it is good to go.
Time for some tangents:
*Back to being outside as much as possible! Life is so much better outside for us.
*It was 35ish degrees on Saturday, and I kept thinking about how hot my ankles were during my long run because I had tall socks on. I’m praying for cold temps on race day, but if things start looking hot for Boston, I will need to wear a few long layers and run at the indoor track to prepare for warmer temps.
*I’ve had this medal next to my bathroom mirror for almost a year. Every day I get to look at it and think about my goals for this year. It’s a great motivator on those mornings I’m getting ready to run and feeling tired.
*Remember how I quit diet coke/soda at the end of December? I drank from Andrew’s Stanley thinking it was water, and it wasn’t… it was Dr.Pepper, and it was so delicious. I might have to try ‘moderation’ with this stuff after the marathon. Why do I love soda so much?!?
Have any tangents to share with me??
I feel like most people have very polarizing opinions on the taste of soda… either love it or hate it? Are you one of those people or somewhere in the middle?
-I had never had it until I was a waitress and we all drank it non-stop during our shifts. That is when I was hooked.
Happy PI day… favorite pie?
Feel free to Tell Andrew happy birthday, he will love it! The more attention he can get for his birthday, the better;)
