Thinking Out Loud!

I still have marathon brain ((it's a THING)), my brain is full of other things (wedding things, running things, work things, family/friend things, the list is long my friends) soooooooo, I'm linking up with Amanda @ Running With Spoons for...

1.)  It was pretty glorious to take 3 days completely off from running.  I won't lie though, by day 3 I did get pretty restless and was cranky ((sorry Hunny 0:) Love you! )) I didn't really know what to do with myself.  I wondered around the house aimlessly, relaxed, took a bath, got a 90 minute deep tissue massage, did a bunch of walking, sort of cleaned/picked up the house, and one day stayed in bed until 7:00 am.  I went for a 4 mile recovery run this morning before work and it was glorious!!!   A little creaky still and legs felt a little heavy, but still felt great to get them moving! Also, I feel like Spring has FINALLY decided to hang out for awhile! Happy Dance!
  (Avg. Pace was 8:34--9:24, 9:06, 9:00, 8:56)
2.)  Does anyone not like avocados?  They are so delicious and versatile! I love them.  I love them on toast, I love them in smoothies, I love them as guacamole, I love them on tacos/burritos/salads/burgers/eggs/everything on the planet.  You're missing out on this little nugget of pure gold and happiness if you don't like them and I'm truly sorry you have to go through life without them ((sad face)).

3.)  I have a really really sad obsession with my dog.  Sometimes I'll be out walking him and I get emotional about how MUCH I love him. I'm weird.  My fiance and I talk  to our dogs in "their" voices all the time.  We legit have full on conversations with them(technically with ourselves) and it just makes me happy and also makes me realize how weird we are. we cannot be stopped.  Tucker will cry if we (I) leave him. He sits in the window and waits for me to get home ( I'm convinced he's waiting for me and knows the time I get home).  Aren't dogs the best freaking thing on the planet?! I mean,..........

4.)   I prefer peanut butter over any other nut butter.  Peanut Butter & Co. has the most delicious flavors and we go through them like water.  My mom brings us a new supply pretty much every week. Thanks mom! You're the greatest!  #Noms. 

5.)  These make me happy.

5.)  Can someone please tell me why DOWNLOADING race photos is so gosh darn expensive.  $70!? Are you kidding me? I only really want like 3 of them anyways.  I make this rant after every race.  Wouldn't it make way more sense to charge $10 or $20?  I feel like EVERYONE would buy them and they would make way more money. I'll just have to continue to complain and enjoy my photos with the watermark.  Whatev's.
Finishing the BAA 5k

 Happy Friday Eve!!!!

Happy Running :)


  1. I agree with this entire post. We might be related?! I am esp lovin those socks!

    1. Haha! We probably are! #internetfamily!

      Darn, I just checked because I scored the socks on sale a few weeks ago, but they are sadly gone :( They're pro compression though, tons of great options ((40% off!!)) and I'm thinking these are next

  2. My mom doesn't like avocados and it completely boggles my mind. Of course... there's the whole issue with them making her feel sick, but still :P And I don't think there's anything wrong with being obsessed with your dog! They really are the best animals out there.

    1. Amanda that is TRAGIC!! Please tell your mom I'm sorry :( There a few foods I'm allergic too and I mostly avoid, but things like pineapples, carrots and celery I just love to much so sometimes I just suffer :)
