Seven miles @ 8:36 pace with Jo. It was one of those runs where you start thinking you are too exhausted to run a mile, but then the conversation makes you forget that you are running, and your watch beeps 7 miles.
Back. To. School.
They were all so excited, which made my heart happy.
I came home feeling overwhelmed, so I cleaned summer up in the house for a few hours. I’m pretty sure I didn’t truly clean once this summer… oops.
PS house update–> There isn’t one. Not sure what is going on, but nothing has been going on for a few months.
Back to planning a race again for the school:
It feels so good to eat at home again. Trips make me SO beyond sick of eating at restaurants.
The queen of Yahtzee:
We met up with Andrew during his break to share a Rice Krispy treat. I need more of these in my life.
I decided that today needed some random lists of three. Beck helped me out with these:
3 best books I have read this year:
*Great Alone by Kristin Hannah
*Hello Beautiful by Ann Napolitano
*One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
3 books I want to read:
*Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano
*The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
*Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt
3 current favorite running shoes (this question is causing me stress because I have so many favorites right now, but I’ll narrow it down):
*Saucony Peregrine 13 for trails
*Endorphin Shift 3 for easy runs
*Vaporfly 3 for racing… the pink/orange combo is just too great.
3 races I want to do someday:
*Big Sur Marathon
*Kauai Marathon (trying to convince Andrew I need to do this one this year;)
3 best things I’ve bought from Amazon this year:
*The best sheets for so cheap.
*This ribbed tank top with a built-in bra. I wore it yesterday, and I can’t believe how great it is for the price.
*These white t-shirts… such a good deal and my #1 white tee.
3 pieces of running gear I could not live without currently:
*These mini water bottles for my spandex shorts pockets… saving me this summer. I don’t even feel them in there.
3 foods I could eat daily and never get sick of:
*Cake with a lot of frosting
3 favorite books I’ve listened to on Audible this year:
*Good for a Girl by Lauren Fleshman
*I’m Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy
*The End of Normal by Stephanie Madoff
3 reasons to go out and run today:
*Because life problems feel smaller after a run (at least for me)!
*It helps us to feel alive and adventurous.
*The 15 hours (how long I believe endorphins last;) after make getting out of bed and running worth it.
Please share any of your responses to these lists of three; I can’t wait to read them!
