Our Speed Session coach was out of town, so this girl filled in. Luckily, the big rain held off until the end of practice! I got there early and stayed late to get 8 miles in.
My sweet friend Shyla left this note on my car! Here’s my friend Jenn’s story of “Strong Toast”…
- Jenn told us the best story about a time when she was really struggling during a run. She kept having the negative thought, “you’re toast” repeating in her head. So, she turned it around. “You’re multi-grain, fortified, whole grain, STRONG TOAST!” I will forever think of “strong toast” when I’m struggling during a run!
I got the most wonderfully painful sports massage from Robin Frazier at Franklin Massage Center! I’ve been going every two weeks and it’s really helping.
Taco Tuesday! Recipe HERE!

I started the day with the new Runner’s World at The Perch.
I met my friends at Percy Warner Park to run the 11.2 mile loop. We call it the Monkey Run because it’s a portion of the Flying Monkey Marathon course.
I realized that I had a skulls theme today…hat, jacket, and earrings!
I had some veggies left from Taco Tuesday, so I added black beans, salsa, and made nachos for dinner…YUM!!!!
Lastly, one of my favorite quotes from Breakfast at Tiffany’s…
Do you still read paper magazines? What are your favorite magazines? I subscribe through mail and love Runner’s World, Cooking Light, and O!
Are you good about eating leftovers? I’m the worst! I usually don’t want the same meal two nights in a row and then I forget about them.
Are you having warmer weather? It’s been in the 60’s in TN!!
