8.27 miles @ 8:17, and I officially like running again;). That first week after Boston, I was questioning if I would ever get back into running again… and I was brainstorming new hobbies to blog about. But, sometimes, distance makes the heart grow fonder, and my body and brain needed some time to find my love for it again.
My breathing was pretty heavy, but my body felt great.
Andrew was on call for the day, so he took Beck to watch airplanes take off and land while I got some work done at home.
But then he did get called in, but we could grab a rice bowl first.
Feels like it was just yesterday we were running in snow and now we are running in 80° weather.
Finished off the day with soccer, of course.
Let’s jump into tangents that I need to tell you…
*My kids love eating Ramen straight from the bag. I do not understand.
*It’s allergy time, and I just needed to remind myself about this and anyone else thinking about taking Zyrtec to help with allergies…
This is from last summer:
*I’ve said this before, and I’ll repeat it, I thrive with spring/summer parenting. The winter is so hard, and I feel like I’m cleaning up messes all day long, and everyone is grumpier. But when it is warm enough, we are all outside all day, living our best life.
*An inside-out Reese’s cookie from Dirty Dough. It is so rich that we could handle only a few bites, but it was delicious.
*My Garmin tan line is already pretty aggressive.
*I have another PT appointment tomorrow. I am determined to get my glutes doing their job on the run.
*Running is one of the best ways to learn about delayed gratification… We can work so hard toward our running goals, and there is no quick way to get there. Sometimes that reward takes weeks, months, or years, but we keep doing the hard thing until we get there. So much blood, sweat, and tears to get to the prize.
The Bakline’s McKirdy Marathon looks pretty amazing…
Share a tangent with me!
Last type of cookie that you had?!
Does your area have a million cookie shops like ours does?
Does anyone else have a job where you are sometimes put on call?
