I Said Snow…Not Rain :/

Hi there and happy Tuesday 🙂 How’s it going? Get out for a run today?? Ride your bike??

We have a cloudy sky today, but it is WARM. Like over 40 degrees. On January 9th. Not great. Send snow. We are SUPPOSED to get a good storm starting today through tomorrow….BUT our snow has become rain today. What?!


That could mean a sketch drive for the husband tonight. Ugh.

The B is still under the weather with the cold garbage that is plaguing everywhere it seems. She feels fine and wants to run around and be crazy, but she has a super stuffy nose and cough (luckily the cough took a break overnight!). She is spending some quality play time in the house. Hoping it is better tomorrow and she can ski, but I wont take her if she still sounds iffy. We try to keep our germs to ourselves.

This morning, I got in 3.1 miles of super easy running (I did 3 yesterday too instead of two because it was sunny and gorgeous and in case I end up with her cold, I am trying to get as many miles in as possible!). I am currently at 56/80 km or 70% with 6 days left! That is about 15 miles in 6 days…I hope I can handle that 😉 Created a bit of a buffer there pre-loading last week! Maybe I will even throw a rest day in there! My legs would be okay with that.

Spent some quality time with the foam roller today. Need to stretch more this afternoon.

My plants are wondering why they are not covered in snow yet.


Post-run wood moving is a great cool down, right?


Rough view


These guys are ready to go….just need some snow to fall.


I mean, really….melting….and the sun is not even out! Feels like Spring.


I was way overdressed for my run and ended up pulling off clothes left and right. I have not even worn my spikes once this “winter”. So weird!

On a happy note, it is starting to be lighter longer in the evenings!! It was still light-ish at 5 yesterday evening. I will take every single extra light-filled minute!

That’s about it for us today…unless you want to hear about Paw Patrol or Shimmer and Shine…trying to keep this kiddo low-key is tough! Current mood: washing her dinos in her bathtub. Whatever works!

See ya later!

Please Send Snow

Friday!! Nice to start real life with a short week, am I right?

Any fun plans for the weekend? We have chores on the agenda (mixed in with workouts and fun of course!). It is *supposed to* snow….we sure hope so!

Yesterday was filled with school work, some work-work, cleaning up around the house and a lot of outside play time! The sun was shining and we just had to soak it up. I got in a 5 miles easy run and then Brooke and I hit up the hot tub…so that I could walk today 😉 My goal today is 4 miles of easy running. I am already at 19 miles for the week working on the #4080challenge from lululemon via Strava….but alas, only 13 of them count (no treadmill miles and the challenge started Tuesday so my Monday miles didnt count). Shooting for the 80k, but if not, I will for sure hit the 40k!

How about some random things??

Ken picked up our new prescription sunglasses yesterday! I have not had new ones in 10+ years and I am pretty excited about it!



This is my gorgeous new camera that Ken got me for my birthday. You can tell the pics that I take with it (and not my phone) because they are actually high quality…even if the content is so-so 😉


The cornstarch mix was back yesterday….as was the hour it took to clean it up when she was done. Ha.


Jasper did 3/5 of my miles with me yesterday and then was happy to take a nap….He was ready to rumble when we headed outside to play in the afternoon! I am jealous of his napping.


Got our Stio catalog in the mail. Why does workout/outdoor stuff have to be so cute….so cute!


I seriously need someone to come pick out my outfits for me. Whoever put this together…can you come organize my fashion life??


Afternoon sun and playtime! Spectacular!!


The sunrise this morning wasnt terrible…


Brooke has big playdoh plans this morning while I finish cleaning up that house. Looking forward to playing in the sunshine before the storm rolls in….and running….and stretching…so much stretching.

Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
