10.58 miles @ 8:22 average with my friends and then a strength workout at home with Andrew. Now that school has started again, I am determined to return to the habit of doing strength. If I want to be running when I’m 90, I need to do this.
I love it when Skye comes out from her room with her unicorn blanket on like this. She’ll roam the house for a few minutes without saying a word until she is fully awake.
We got out for our favorite rice bowls.
And did a few errands, including accessory shopping for our house at our favorite store, Gatehouse.
Not much else happened besides Brooke’s mandatory reading time for school. I have taken it upon myself to read next to her each day.
My tangents are all over the place today:
*My kids recently alerted me of something weird that I do that I didn’t realize was strange. Whenever I see a runner go by, I tell Andrew what type of shoes they are wearing, and then I guess how many miles they have run in them. I didn’t think it was weird, but Brooke and Knox have reached the age where they feel it is their duty to point out every odd thing Andrew and I do.
*These two have been looking so much like each other these days, in my opinion:
*I’ve determined that running shoes need to be sold in quarter sizes. We need them to fit perfectly; quarter sizes would allow that to happen more often.
*I have loved summer running laundry. It’s 1/8th as much as winter running laundry.
*Does anyone else feel like they need a translator when they text with a teenager? These are from Curly, and I tried to act like I understood what she was saying, but I hope it wasn’t anything important because I left the conversation clueless.
*My kids love banana-flavored candy, and it is alarming to me. Do I need to have their tastebuds checked out?
*What is wrong with my eyes? My sunglasses always have fingerprints and smudges all over them, which doesn’t bother me. I’m pretty sure this would drive most people crazy.
*Sha’Carri Richardson! The Women’s World Championship 100m Final! 10.65!!
Have a tangent for me?
Do you pay attention to what running shoes people are wearing?
Parents—> Do you notice that your kids look alike?
Would my sunglasses habit drive you nuts or not?
