Perfect running weather

Talk about change! After writing yesterday about the awful weather, I woke up this morning to a weather fairytale.  Warm, sunny, 60 degrees.  Running perfection.

When I got home from work yesterday, I was greeted by Holly Dolly and Broc Man.  It was so fun to come home to these sweet faces.

I love the way that Holly is affectionately holding Broc’s face.

Joy.

These kids make me so happy.

I had to quick change and get ready for a dinner that we were going to with our friends from church.  We had a great time and even met some new people.

This morning I woke up hungry, excited about the weather, and ready to run!  I had a big bowl of oatmeal with pumpkin, banana, pear, and blackberries mixed in.

ImageAfter I ate and lounged around, I headed to the park for my 11 miles.  The park was crowded, filled with people running, biking, and kids running around.  I loved running past people and seeing how happy they were.  The first couple of weekends of beautiful weather after a long, cold winter bring out the joy in everyone. Love it.

I practiced with gels during this run and took a gel at miles 5.5, 7, and 9.  It worked well, but I really need to figure out how to carry water with me because I was thirsty in a big way! Overall, it was a strong, beautiful run.  If I could order weather for a run, today would be exactly what I would want!

When I got home, I had a veggie scramble mixed with eggs and deli turkey and a side of greek yogurt.

Refueling like a Pro!

I am looking forward to enjoying the afternoon and continuing to enjoy this beautiful weather 🙂
