Nine miles @ 8:59 pace out on the trails and roads.
The big work for St. George is done; that feels good.
Andrew got in 17 miles @ 8:55 pace. He will do a 20 miler this weekend/early next week and then taper. I am so proud of him.
I have a lot of tangents today, so let’s get started:
*Our passports arrived 6 days after we mailed off our applications. We feel so lucky.
*I’ve been watching and reading everything I can about the Budapest Marathon and came across a man running the 26.2 miles as a Rubik’s Cube. It is impressive, especially since the Rubik’s Cube originated in Hungary.
*I saw on the internet somebody putting random things in their kid’s lunch in addition to their normal lunch. I tried it, and they said it makes them laugh when they open it up at lunch.
*The other day, I noticed my MIL put her wedding ring on her right hand… I asked her why, and she explained that she does it when she needs to remember something later. Later on, when she notices her ring is on the wrong hand, it reminds her that she needs to remember something. I tried out this method, and it works! So, if you ever notice my ring on my right hand, that’s why🤣
*Brooke started playing the trumpet!
*On the runs where it isn’t cold enough to bring gloves, but a little something would make my fingers happier, socks always do the trick. And once it gets warm, they are easy to toss!
*I went through my closet to find shoes to give to my nieces and came across my old marathon shoes. My feet instantly hurt just imagining racing in these for even just a 5k now.
I need a bit more support these days… with my shoes and sports bras, ha.
*My new running motto for shoes= The higher the heel, the closer to heaven🤣
*Curly has almost passed me?!?!?!? Also, I have no idea where those bruises on my leg came from.
*I got an email for an app/service for influencers that responds to comments/messages for you?! Ummm, isn’t that skipping the whole point of all of this? CONNECTION!!!
*Now I might need to wear the Eliud Vaporflys for the marathon. I cannot decide!
Have some tangents for me today?
Can anyone give me some creative ideas for kid’s school lunches? I need to give them some variety.
Has your need for more support in your shoes changed over the years?
Ever played an instrument?
