Lots of love for cake batter protein powder, eh? Love it! Speaking of cake batter, my sister called me last night and told me she and the kids were going to stop by. Since it was so nice out, I suggested walking to a local fro-yo joint.
No, no we didn’t party it up at fro-yo with the kids. That photo is from the night we went out for Steph’s 30th. We did walk the mile to and from fro-yo with kids in tote. It was an absolute perfect night for walking, seesterly bonding, and obviously fro-yo.
Clearly I went with cake batter! I also had the sea salt caramel and blackberry flavors. Blackberry was delicious and I had to have a bite of the caramel for this girl. I put just one hunk of cookie dough in there and Jacob asked me if he could have it. I was a mean auntie and said “no.” My sister was laughing as I was more than willing to share any and all of my flavors… just not the one piece of cookie dough I got! Come on, kid!
Jacob always pronounces ice cream like “ahhs cream.” It sounds like he has a Southern accent or something. We have no idea where it came from, but it cracks us up and we ask him a hundred questions just so we can hear “ahhs cream” again and again.
On our walk back home, we passed a huge patch of grass when the sun was just beginning to set. Jacob and Stephanie loves jumping and jumping pictures as much as I do, so we naturally had to stop for some fun.
My friend Diana is participating in the run portion of a triathlon relay this weekend. She gets an early high five because I know she’ll rock it! Earlier this week we went on a run together. I still have not been running consistently like I used to – just a little here and there. However, since I have been working out I was confident I’d be able to handle the four miles Diana had planned for us. Our goal is always to keep a 10-minute mile pace. In races, I naturally run faster and I try not to obsess about time too much because then it just becomes a mind game which is not fun. We cut it close…
But we made it! We were literally sprinting at the end to beat 40 minutes. It was fun to run again, especially with a partner. This run made me feel very good because I am running a 5k tomorrow morning for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation. I’m hoping to beat 30 minutes, but I’m not sure if that will happen. We shall see.
Oh and by the way – I know I promised a Ruckus Run recap, and I’ll still give it to you eventually, but my darling sister still has not given me a CD with all 263 pictures on it. <Cough cough, Steph> For now, you can read my pre-race morning post or you can look at some of the awesome pictures on Stephanie’s blog here. You know we just had to take jumping pictures when we were all muddy…
What are you proud of today? If you’re a runner, what’s your pace?
