Let’s keep going with the Boston talk if that is okay with you!
Sunday was all about relaxation. Andrew brought back Finagle Bagel (their french toast bagels are perfection). I had two bagels, a Core Power for breakfast, and some Gatorade. We caught up on our important Netflix shows, Andrew planned his spectating, and we just hung out in the room.
We went out and grabbed some lunch, and then I did what some of you recommended and went and had my hair braided. I wanted every hair out of my face for race day. After that, I went to James Joseph on Newbury, and they did an amazing job. The rest of the day was spent eating carbs, relaxing, and waiting for the Love is Blind Reunion to start.
“Wear sunglasses for when it is windy to block debris, when it is sunny to avoid squinting, and for your pictures so they can’t see the pain in your soul.”
*Whenever I travel (without kids), I have the most extreme desire for another baby. I see a baby out and about and tell Andrew I NEED at least four more. And then we get home, and I remember that I’m slowly drowning, and we are done. Have any other moms experienced this?
*My race tradition for any Office lovers. Watch the Fun Run episode the night before a race.
*Is it too soon to start planning next year’s trip to Boston?
*I love playing Daniel Tiger songs in the car for Skye and Beck, but this one was teaching me;)
“Rest Is Best” I have a hard time resting (but a great therapist is helping me with this:)… But I am determined to take this time off seriously so I can get back at it again fresher than ever.
Thankfully, this time of year means we are outside much more, making a break from exercise easier. I am a better person when I am outside.
*To go ahead and add to my long list of ‘things not to do leading up to the marathon’… maybe don’t do a home remodel at the same time. But the kids sure love all of the eating out.
*Andrew started his new job but was home for a lunch break. So far, it’s going well, and I love having him at home at night again. The number of times I Facetimed him in the middle of the night while he was at his last job because I heard a weird noise is too high to keep count.
Who watched Love is Blind? Thoughts? Feelings? Have a Netflix show you are loving now?
Is resting hard for anyone else?
Have you had any humbling runs/races/life things lately?
