I didn’t run today because I was being wimpy and it was raining. It has been frizzy hair weather for days.
I read an article recently that says dogs experience the same runners high as humans. Crazy?!
Recipe failure #34
These are healthy oatmeal bars. Anytime I try to omit sugar, butter, chocolate chips, things do not taste as good.
They weren’t too bad after I topped them with butter and maple syrup and fruit
Did you run today?!?
Run today: 5 miles 8:18 pace. I checked the weather a million times before we left so I wouldn’t be stuck in the rain with the most dramatic dog in Maine. Of course, one mile in it started pouring and Lainey was not happy about it!
This is tonight on our walk
to get ice cream.
Do you like rainy days? I do… If I get to stay home and watch movies/read/take naps all day.
Today I kind of realized that I was tired and that I hadn’t had a day to rest in a long time. So I took a nap for 2 hours. Then I took Lainey for a long walk.
We’re not going to talk about how she managed to escape from her harness.
Things are finally starting to turn green in Maine. And the black flies and bugs are back- I have so many (like 5) bug bites. And Nick had a tick today- I calmed him down so he didn’t call 911 like that one time.
Nick also met some new friends yesterday.
Hope you had a great weekend!
Today I woke up at 5:00am and hit the ground running (literally)! 5 miles at 8:42 pace. And it was freezing. WHY IS IT COLD IN MAY?!?!
Then I did a million awesome things today. Here are some pictures with no explanations
Best part of the day: I learned another reason why I am friends with Jeannine. She, also tries to fit as many desserts into one bowl like I do.
this was to make up for the lack of Dairy Queen last week
Today I didn’t run and did the elliptical instead. Lainey was so mad so she chewed on my yoga mat.
Cereal for breakfast the best way (3 kinds all mixed together).
These beauties came in the mail today. I have an emotional attachment to Nike Pegasus and I can’t switch even though the new version gives me massive blood blisters (I will spare you the picture of my marathon blister- it’s not as bad as that one time though!)
I think I found my new favorite ice cream. S’mores made by Giffords. Graham flavored ice cream with marshmallow swirl and chocolate chunks. So delicious.
Run today : 7 miles 9:03 pace. Other than a little tightness in my hamstring, I felt good! I love how Lainey’s ears flap in the wind when we run.
I thought I was taking a super awesome picture of the brook.
Nick got a little upset at me today because apparently I had too many shoes in the living room. (9 pairs is not “too many”)
Then Lainey got in trouble for taking all of her toys out of her basket.
Today someone had a pointer puppy at school and my heart skipped a few beats. I need one.
Do you love shoes?!
Today there was running. It hurt.
Today we had breakfast for dinner and that is my favorite. I tried to like bacon really badly but it’s just not happening.
