1.  I hit the treadmill at a time that was way too early in the morning.  I didn’t have anyone to run with and I try to avoid running alone in the dark so the treadmill won.  11 miles at a 7:51 ave pace.  I forgot my wireless headphones which drove me absolutely nuts… especially when the wire somehow got stuck in my necklace and caused a knot that took me a year to get out.  Wires drive me nuts.

The two of us became friends real fast and I know that he wants to start accompanying me on all of my future trail runs.   Spent 10 hours yesterday making a little video for these fitness trackers (nothing blog related… an outside project I did). I really wish we went back to using these beautiful old cameras instead of our phones.   Lunch break at one of Salt Lake City’s absolute best.   100% guarantee that if a restaurant […]

Body Image Stuff

My body image is something that I struggled with starting in the 7th grade.  College was extra hard and so were the years leading up to having Brooke.  When I got pregnant I started to realize how incredible my body was for being able to have Brooke and that helped out my body image a lot, I was a lot kinder to myself.   Motherhood means that my day is revolved around Brooke which also means that I have less […]

Back at it again and lots of randomness.

Josse and I are back at it again.  She is coming back to running after dealing with plantar fascitis and it has been way too long since that last time we ran together.  We had a wonderful 6 miles together in the early morning (Brooke and I slept at my mom’s house) and then I did 4 miles afterwards.   Another friend came with us too that is currently training for a 100 MILE UTLRA.  Someday I want to tackle […]

The BEST exercise and the Glycerin 12 Review

I had an interesting realization yesterday morning—> I may be spoiling Brooke a tiny bit in the morning. Every morning when I get her out of her crib we lay on the couch and I scratch her back until she is fully awake and ready to party.  Yesterday after her back scratch I made her banana pancakes.   I don’t think either of us would have it any other way.   Megan and I are now neighbors and so that […]

Let’s start with the highlights and then we will end with the lowlights.   -Waking up and feeling pretty darn good the day after running 18 miles.  I feel strong and ready to keep moving forward with this whole marathon training thing. -Spending the afternoon with my soul sister.   -GEL NAILS.  These just make me happy and it has been way too long since the last time I went and got them. -Finally hanging up some things on Brooke’s […]

Done and done.

18 miles were accomplished yesterday morning. Probably not my best idea for us to do the first mile straight uphill.  I guess it is good training to run the last 17 miles of my long run on tired legs from climbing a mountain at the very start!? Jess came and did the first 8 with me on the trails (PS if you are wanting to make your long runs more interesting ((and easier on your joints)), try doing part of […]
