I don’t have a run to talk about so let’s get into some tangents right away:
*Skye had her dance recital yesterday. She beamed on that stage.
Beck wasn’t sure why he wasn’t the center of attention, ha.
*Hoka now has running shoes for kids?! I’m in trouble.
*I’m listening to Kara Goucher’s book right now, and she talks about during her training for the NYC Marathon that she wore a weighted vest for a few miles of her long run going UPHILL. I have never heard of doing this before, has anyone else?
I*Back on the soda train again until I start training again. Utahns are weird, and we add coffee creamer to our soda. It’s heavenly. PS These glasses are just my favorite.
*One last thing from what Keira said at Ali’s show. She talked about how she has thoughts of ‘this is dumb’ during a race. I don’t know why that felt so shocking, but I assumed the pros were floating through the course with thoughts of gratitude and strength the whole time;). She said she has those thoughts and then gives herself time to regroup and return to fighting for what she wants again.
*Big Bear just sent out personalized highlight VIDEOS from the race… I had no idea they took videos along the way. I’ve only ever received pictures from races. Maybe this is next for all races.
*I can’t live without ice. I can’t drink liquids without ice. Unfortunately, our ice maker is out of commission during the remodel, so I’m picking up ice from Sonic to avoid dehydration.
*If you ever need a pep talk, listen to this song. It has helped me so many days when I feel I’m doing it all wrong.
*I am positive that for the next 16 years, I will not be able to marathon train through the end of April and May. The other day I had four different places I needed to be at the same time for the kids.
*My nephew gave Beck his old cleats, and it made his life.
*We are missing stools and our dishwasher right about now.
*The only thing tempting me to run again is the pretty gear… so excited for these.
Any songs that pep you up?!
Share a tangent with me!
Would you rather go without an oven or a dishwasher?
Feelings on ice… is it necessary, or can you go without it?
