(Bra ((it’s ribbed, and it’s my favorite… go a size up if you order it!), shorts, long-sleeve. It’s not super normal to run in a sports bra and gloves, but I’ll blame it on my hormones. I met up with four girls to join them at the track. One is running Boston in a few days, and her final workout was 3 x 1 mile at her marathon pace. I was really excited about that because her marathon pace is just a bit faster than my mile rep pace, so I knew I’d have someone to chase. We did a 3-mile w/u, 3 x 1 mile on the track with 2-minute standing recoveries, and c/d to 11 miles. My splits were 5:55, 5:57 ..read more

(Shoes, pants, shirt, and I’m just hoping I can put my gloves and headbands away VERY soon.)  I ran 9 miles at an 8:35 pace. My legs were very aware of the hill climbing I had done the day before. The day he gets to go to school with them will be the best day of his life. Andrew buzzed Beck’s hair, which aged him about ten years, in my opinion. I made a rookie mistake by storing our puzzles and card games within reach of toddlers… Beck had his friend over, and while I was cleaning the fridge and thinking they were playing with Magnatiles, they dumped out a few puzzles and mixed them tog ..read more

(Shirt, pants) 11.11 miles @ 8:14 pace w/ 764 ft of climbing.  I am trying to get back into trail shape to do some fun ones this summer. The sinkhole is still there… right in the bike lane!  I do not want somebody falling on this like I did… I still feel too lucky that I didn’t get more seriously injured.    There really wasn’t much else going on yesterday so from here, we will go into the tangents: *My trees are somehow still alive. :) I only have to water them once a week, and I do so in my bathtub to let the extra water run off into the drain rather than onto my wood fl ..read more

(shorts, top, shoes) Ten miles @ 7:56 pace on Saturday… I was going to add some speed and then made the executive decision I didn’t want to, so I just ran. We are back home now! We were in Bluff, Utah, which is in the southeast corner of Utah. For spring break, we wanted to go somewhere warm, new, and not too crowded, so we headed to Bluff. I googled “close-ish family resorts with a pool,” and Bluff Dwellings pulled up.  It was rated 4.7, and the reviews were all amazing while at the same time it wasn’t too pricey, so we went for it. The kids loved the resort’s park; I believe all parks s ..read more

Burritos and French toast for breakfast. Goosenecks State Park is unreal. We couldn’t believe it. Mexican Hat, Utah. Monument Valley!!! Sadly, it was so windy (hard to avoid getting sand in our eyes!!!) that we couldn’t do all of our plans there but it was still stunning to see.  I didn’t get my Forest Gump photo but we will be back… Sand Island Petroglyphs dating back 800-2500 years ago. And of course we ended things here. Happy weekend running! Tell me three things you have going on today! The post Silentish Saturday! first appeared on The Hungry Runner Girl ..read more

I was very relieved when I woke up in the morning and got out of bed that nothing was injured.  When I was going to bed I was worried that overnight my knee would swell up big or something from my fall but it didn’t. 6.4 miles @ 8:15 pace in the desert. And then we were off to breakfast. I would like fried bread to be a part of my daily life morning routine. Our Spring Break goal was to relax… Andrew is coming off some really tough work cases and this is just what he needed. One of life’s greatest joys: We finished the day off with a sunset hike. Beck made it the whole way up on his ..read more

(Shirt, pants) Lauren is getting me out on the hills again. There is a road that we used to run, and it starts at the very base by the river and then climbs up 350ft in one mile. The burn you experience on this hill deserves a reward, and usually, that reward is the cars that go by and yell out ‘good job’ because the hill is so steep. My sister planned yesterday’s spring break activities; while random, it was a huge success. At the Shri Shri Radha Krishna Temple, you can rent llamas.  The llamas were there before the temple and they help to fund the temple and grounds now.  Our gui ..read more

A 12-mile run + some strength training—> I’m front-loading this week because I’m not sure how much I’ll be running later this week! When Andrew got out weights to strength train, Brooke wanted to join in, too… And then we were off for the day… The broken leg didn’t teach him much a few months ago; he is still running around wherever we go, chasing the kids. We went swimsuit shopping for Brooke, and these two were pooped by the end… But we left with what we needed because it is spring break here! And now for the tangents today: *My nephew recently got home from his 2-year church mission ..read more

(Shorts, bra, shoes) Runner’s Corner and I are back together again, and I will be racing for them this year!  I’m excited to sport the logo and be on the team with Lauren. Lauren and I decided at the very last second to jump into a 4.01k (2.49 miles), which we were excited about because it meant we would get an automatic PR regardless of what time we ran. The race was UVU (a local university) Race to Retirement, hence the 401k distance.  It’s pretty clever if you ask me. We decided to jump into shorter races and rip the bandaid off with this one. I love racing, but I want to take a ..read more

(Shorts, top) PJ day at school for the kids and 7 miles @ 8:16 pace for my run. Matchy matchy. Runner’s Corner for gels. They gave these out as a sample and these might be the first protein bars that actually taste really really good to me. They have joined the green (well, purplish bc we add so much fruit) smoothie train. Brinner. Carmelized Banana French Toast. <— the only way I want to eat French toast now.  + 2 more pieces. And a kicked-back Friday night: DEAL ALERT-> One of my favorite lululemon tops is on sale right now, and the colors are SO good ..read more
