This just feels good again.

Before she got home I did 3 miles.  I’ll do my long run today instead of yesterday… I woke up feeling a little bit awful (my stomach is a lot better than it used to be but still not 100%).

The best part of the run was that it was 20 degrees and really windy.. that always feels great on the face;)

Once the afternoon hit we had a girls date.

Brooke wasn’t very excited about it or anything.

Color Me Mine for some good ol’ painting—>  she chose to paint a donut.  I was proud.

The only Black Friday shopping I did was for carbs.

Brooke went to bed at my parents’ and then I hit up the movies.  3 movies this week—>  total normal behavior for Thanksgiving break.

Enjoy your weekend!!!!  Fill me in on what you did with your Friday and what you’ve got going on today!

Our Thanksgiving complete with freezing cold miles and pies for an appetizer.

Now that was a cold 5 miler.  I’m glad I made sure to get the trash can in my picture too.  8:04 pace.  Lots of wind.  Lots of Regina Spektor listening. Lots of thinking about my Brookers and the upcoming pies.   After my run I walked on the treadmill and watched the parade for a little bit because going back to a Brookeless house isn’t my favorite thing (good news… she comes home today!!!) Before going to my parents’ […]

Happy Thanksgiving and just a few things from yesterday.

Happy Happy Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you have a beautiful day filled with your people, food and relaxation! I’ve got a long list of things I am especially grateful for today but I think we all probably know my #1: I also wanted to share my favorite quote about gratitude and how to find it each day!  He goes on to say at the end of this quote… “Perhaps we should be looking less with our eyes and more with […]

A LOT can change in just a few hours.

Somehow this morning was tank and shorts running weather… and just a few hours later it turned into 5 layers and hot chocolate weather.   Today’s run was a rough one for me.  It shouldn’t have been but it just was.  I took a break half-way through because I was sure that my legs actually were dead and I checked my phone. My cute friend just broke three hours (2:57) in October and she sent on over a text just […]

ALL of the key points and 10 questions to ask yourself while running.

Our Thanksgiving celebration hit all of the key points—>  turkey, pie, a movie and some good ol’ fashioned quality time together.  Brooke will get home Friday morning and I’m already looking forward to decorating the house for Christmas with her! We started off the evening with Kneaders and I went with the turkey/avocado/bacon salad with focaccia bread.  I probably should have attempted to make a turkey at home or something like that for our celebration but when you are tapering […]

Sentence Per Picture!

When we got out of our cars this morning we both looked at each other and said, ‘I’m grumpy’…. and then by the end of the 4.25 miles together we were laughing and in WAY better moods.   Brooke read about Rumpelstiltskin with grandpa while they both ate frosted mini wheats.   Just the usual stretching routine—>  I try to stretch and Brooke tries to make it so I can’t stretch:) We are celebrating Thanksgiving today so we went to […]

My favorite kind of date and an important Thanksgiving quiz.

Before we get to the important Thanksgiving quiz that I am sure you are on the edge of your seat waiting for…  let’s review last night. Ms. Brooke fell asleep on me while I was rubbing her back and I put her to bed at my mom’s house for a few hours.   I picked up some of these because somebody told me they are amazing.  I haven’t tried them yet but I was too interested to not buy them.
