Hello! How’s your day going?

This morning I decided to make myself do a speed session – the same one I did last Tuesday. I’m still figuring out my training schedule and it’s hard when I race so much because my legs are super tired in between, but I still need to get it together (or race less, which I’m not considering right now today).

Luckily, this nice lil man on a bike told me “Good job!!” as he rode past me in the opposite direction. It made me happy I decided to push it today.

great job

I also pushed my heel into my ankle though…

Yesterday my mom and I walked the dogs with my favorite tiny person. We were trying to get her to take a nap, but she was too distracted by the world.

Seriously though, there was a stand-off near our walking route and the helicopter was hovering down making loud announcements the whole time.

All that walking/excitement required a snack. I went with my favorite way to eat avocado…

Then, I made dinner for my fam. I bought sweet potato curly fries for my mom and raided her fridge for the rest of the meal. But, I did make everything so we’ll split credit for the meal Winking smile

Everyone was really happy with it, which is awesome because a lot of time I try to make things too healthy and then it’s less-than-awesome.

Finally the baby fell asleep so I hung out by her while everyone else did their thing. And I distracted myself with Instagram and selfies. #classy

Dessert! My mom only had vanilla ice cream, but I made it chocolate chip cookie ice cream by adding crushed up Famous Amos cookies. Do it to it.

Question: Potato fries or Sweet potato fries?

What’s for dessert?

I actually prefer regular potato fries (or waffle fries) for my french fries, but sweet potato instead of a regular baked potato…

Don’t Hate Me Because I Have a Dumb Running Blog…

Hate me because I torture my cat with hugs and selfies. And because I run too much even though I know I shouldn’t. Today’s run was super hot. I was not expecting 85 degrees! Don’t hate me because I love coffee, something many of us share in common. Hate me because I scored some of […]

Hey hey hey! After my short run yesterday I ran some errands and picked up a Fage yogurt with strawberry. I fancied it up with nuts. I also met up with the artist formerly known as SkinnyRunner for a walk. I took three pictures and couldn’t manage a non-blurry one. So this is what you […]
