Late yesterday afternoon I just did not feel super great and my couch became my new best friend (well, it is always my best friend). My mom and dad came and took Brooke out to dinner so that she could get out and party for a bit.  PS someday I will put batteries in my wall clock but until then it will always be 10:15 at our house. While they went to dinner I watched one of the best movies […]

Today was one of those days that I really wished the treadmill didn’t make me stop at 60 minutes.  All I needed was one more minute to finish my run.   The workout called for 10 x 2 minute hard intervals.  For the intervals I averaged a 5:56 pace (10.1 on the treadmill).  For the non-hard time I was at around a 7:20 pace which felt comfortable only because I was comparing that pace to the 5:56 pace:)  Finished the […]

Hit up the tailor to get some alterations on my bridesmaid dress for my bff’s wedding next month!  Showed Brooke around my old stomping grounds and it was fun to walk on the same sidewalk that I ran on many many times when I was pregnant with her.   I found the perfect class for me to teach at the gym, now just to convince my gym to start a treadmill class…  you guys will come right? My grandma got […]

Supplements that I take before a race & better than finding money in your pocket.

Yorks are another underappreciated candy.   They always remind me of my mom because when we go on road trips together she always gets the silver wrapped candy.   I put on my jacket to head to the gym this morning and found these.  Better than finding $, unless you find the money in your pocket while you are in a grocery store and you can spend it on your favorite candy right away.   This week is all about […]

Brooke came home today and the first three things that she did were (in extremely particular order): -She grabbed her blanket and put it up to her face while saying, ‘my pink blankie is soooooo soft.’ -She gave me a hug and told me she missed me. -She saw the medal from my race this last weekend, put it on and ran around (while only swinging her left arm) the house. I can’t even explain how good it feels to […]

It had been a long time since my last race.  Over 4 months.  When I don’t race often I kind of forget how to do it and I get really nervous.  I decided to make the decision last second to run this race, to just not overthink it and have fun.   My alarm went off at 6:45 and we were on the bus at 7:30.  I had some Powerade, a white bagel and a honeystinger waffle (my favorite) on […]
