Pumpkin Spice Oreos. You're welcome. They seriously taste like pumpkin pie :)

Running schedule this week:
Monday: 5 miles, ended up running  6.4 because I desperately needed a restroom and stupid ⭐️bucks  wouldn't open the door before 5am! Agh! Let's just say that I am glad it was dark and no one else was on the trail.
Tues: 6X800 @ 5k pace
Wed: 3 miles
Thurs: rest
Fri: 3 pace miles
Sat: 12 

Beginning to taper before my last 1/2 marathon for the season!

Sweet girl

We were playing Yahtzee and she did this between turns

We took the kids to the fair yesterday and Mady wasn't sure about this giant turkey...
The hubs and I did 25 miles last week, 5, 5, 3, and 12. Our 5's had speed in them and our long run was so much faster this week! We have our last 1/2 marathon of the season in 2 weeks and I feel ready! Now, we are starting to taper which always feels kind of strange.

Our Thursday night
And some sweet posters!
We took the kids to their first concert (the boys anyway) and saw Tenth Avenue North! It was awesome! I think Luke slept through about 1/2 of it ;)
No long run this week. The shins are angry at my 2 a days, so I'm backing off. Planning to run 5 days this week with an 11-13 miler this weekend. I'm hoping to run our race course.

Have an amazing week and go 9ers!!

Little Mermaid

For those of you who don't know, I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid as a little girl. It's probably still one of my most favorite Disney movies! We celebrated my niece's bday early with an Ariel party, which made my heart very happy for several reasons :)
We decided to not do a run tomorrow as my shins have started to act up, instead we did a T-25 Gamma and stretching and holy cow my back! 

My x-country team has their first meet this week! Eek! I'm excited and nervous for all of them!
