This time next month I will be having breakfast with Pooh, my running best friend and our families. We will be heading to the expo after and all of this hard work will be put to the test over marathon weekend.
I am nervous. I am ready for it to come to a close and I am ready for the "next" adventure. Before I let the cat out of the bag for next year's line up I want to get through Disney! Ha. Let's just say it includes a 50 mile trek and a visit to my second home city. Chicago.
I have to say I have learned a lot about myself the past few months. I believe my race report will read more like an autobiography; and that's OK.
So here is our life on film lately.....
Yes one lone present under the tree. Brian and I have been very cautious in the last few years when it comes to giving each other presents. Last year was special because he was able to do something pretty amazing for me (necklace from Tiffany's) and well; I have not been able to do much for him since our main focus has been E and giving her a good Christmas. THANKFULLY this year I was able to do something very small for him. The gift has already been opened and he is thrilled and it just made my heart happy to give back to him some of what he has done for his girls.
Speaking of his ladies.....
This girl is crazy. Crazy!!!
I have a future runner on my hands it seems!
Running this weekend was TOUGH. All summer long y'all heard me bitch about the heat and although I won't really complain about the cold Saturday morning's run was a tough one. The real feel here was 20* (which is cold for Houston) and there was a pretty strong headwind the ENTIRE TIME.
When my alarm went off at 5:30 am I tried to decide what I could wear that would combat the negative narrative I already had going on.
Cobra Kai won out.
10 miles run in a cut off t-shirt and a jacket of course. A pair of running tights and all of my cold gear, hat, gloves the whole 9 yards. Want to know something? I had to sit on the heating pad and shower for about 20 extra minutes to get my legs moving again. GOOD TIMES.
Following my icy trend I decided to wear all warm things. At once. With no shame.
Don't hate me because I am beautiful. Or an asshole.
Gingerbread houses. Can someone please explain to my child that the main objective is to BUILD the house than eat all of the ingredients.?? Apparently she did not get that memo and was guilty of pretty much clearing out all of the candy. Oh well.
Have a wonderful week friends.
