Our last run together before her baby is here. Selfishly, I am very grateful for these babies of my running friends to get here so I can hold them and so that we can all start training for marathons together again.
12 miles with 1400 ft of climbing. These views were just what my soul needed. Speed will start up again next week;). If it seems like I keep pushing it off, it’s because I am ha. It will be there for me when I’m ready!
I got to see Lauren for her little one’s birthday party.
And then we decided to jump in the car for a quick trip to St George. Andrew only works one weekend a month now with his new job which feels so much better than his last job.
When my aunt heard we were on our way done, she invited us to dinner. She told us it was her treat and that we needed to order everything we wanted. It turned into a four hour meal that was absolute perfection.
Every restaurant needs to get rid of rectangle tables and move to circular ones instead. It is just so much easier to talk to everyone this way.
My aunt signed me up for my first race ever (a half marathon). She bought me my first bike for triathlons. She brought me along on runs with her and gave me all of her best tips. She helped me find this passion I love so much.
PS I only brought running and swimming clothes for this trip and then found out we were going somewhere fancy for dinner and I ran into target to change ha.
Sunday morning I woke up and Brooke was all ready to go for a run. We made it about a mile before it got too hot but it was an awesome mile.
87 degrees at 8 am.
We went to get donuts and while there I told Andrew I was craving sushi. The woman in front of us heard me and told me that we had to go and try Kaiseki Sushi.
So we did just that. It was by far the best sushi I’ve ever had in a landlocked state🤣.
Brooke loves sushi now which makes sushi eating even more fun.
I still have hard feelings towards wasabi and will never eat it again. I worked at a sushi restaurant and my table dated me $150 to eat it… so I did. Learn from my many poor life choices.
And then we swam and swam and swam because that is just necessary when it is 100+ degrees.
Finished up with a bbq at my cousin’s house. My girls go crazy for their cats. If only Beretta was okay with cats.
Tell me a highlight from your weekend!
Who has cats?
Anybody else have someone that talked them into their first race?
Utah friends-> how are you celebrating Utah’s holiday today?
