Happy Friyay!! The boys are back in school, oh happy day. I know. I’ve said this at the beginning of every post this week, but it’s true. I miss them but man, they needed to vacate the premises. Now I have a little princess tom boy running around in her Elsa dress with her Star Wars gun. It’s awesome. Here are some of my faves from the week. And how is this for real life blogging? Yea, back before I had a job and a 4th grader and 1st grader who both play baseball and a marathon to train for, I blogged first thing in the morning. Now, I blog when I have a few minutes to myself, which is now at 1:26 pm. Let’s hear it for movie time. Whoop!!

Favorite Activity this Week…
Lunch out with Anna!!
Lila and I showered and got dressed and went out to lunch with our buddy Anna. We walked around our town square and had a great time not worrying about getting home for naps(because apparently, we don’t do those anymore? Sucks for me) and enjoyed the day. It was so quit and calm, a drastic difference from our lunches out the past 3 months. Love my boys, bless them. They just can not sit at a table without putting their hands all over each other and making fart sounds. Lila doesn’t make fart sounds…. very often.
Need I expound on this picture? Um no. A Jimmy John’s sub after a long early morning run and errands and teaching boot camp and getting the house strait is heaven. Pure heaven. Carbs, but heavenly ones.
Favorite Workout Tank
You guys. Stop what you’re doing and go buy this tank in 20 different colors. Now. If you live in a place where it is still unbearably hot, this tank will be your best friend. It’s like going shirtless but not so much. I refuse to be the chick running in a sports bra down our elementary school bus lined suburban streets, it’s just not ok. So, this tank is the next best thing. It’s light and airy and BREATHES!!!!!!!! You will not feel like you are dying a slow hot death in this tank.
Favorite Memory from this Time Last Year….I know. So completely rando
Hood to Coast Relay
My first leg of Hood to Coast last year…..hands down THE BEST racing experience ever. And maybe one of the overall coolest experiences of my life so far. Plus I got to do it with Rob which made it even more awesome. It was one weekend ago this time last year, and it will be a memory I never forget. Wish we were back there to race this weekend!!!We had the best team!!! Here’s the finish line!!
If you can do a relay…do it. It is an amazing way to see new places, meet new people and run with camaraderie and just pure fun.
Favorite Quote/IG account
No truer words have ever been spoken am I right? I had decaf one morning this week because I ran out of regular. I thought there was enough of the good stuff hidden in the decaf to get me through the morning. WRONG. Dead wrong. So, my girl Jen nailed it with this one. Go check out her IG account if you don’t follow her already. She’s the jams.

Go download this song on Spotify(if you don’t use Spotify, do it NOW. Thank me later) and play it during the end of your run or workout. You. are. welcome.
