For those of you that subscribe to my blog via email, I’m so sorry I accidentally posted a draft!! I was loading notes and clicked post. Oops. It was bound to happen. Here’s the finished post:
It was my first real long run since Boston and CMM. I joined the Run 4 Others group for 12 miles. It was also the first hot and humid run of the year.
I went over to Juice Bar for a much needed green smoothie afterwards.
Then I had more fruit and some breakfast quinoa when we got home.
We cleaned up and Jason and I headed to Kentucky to spend the day with his family.
Mother’s Day is always tough for me. I haven’t seen or spoken to my mom in years due to her addiction problems. It rarely bothers me except for certain holidays. Thankfully I’ve been blessed with some incredible women in my life! This really resonated with me today. I don’t have room in my life for pity parties. Period.
My next race is the North Fork 50. It’s trails in Colorado, so for the next month I’ll be spending a lot of time in the woods. We had so much fun running this morning!
Cocogo in my handheld. It is so hot and humid in TN right now! Use discount code: JENCHOOSESJOY (all caps)
I know it doesn’t look pretty, but I made some chocolate chia seed pudding the night before and it was the perfect treat after our hot run!
T-shirt du jour!
For lunch we enjoyed some patio time. Deviled eggs and champagne…can you tell I’m southern?!
We must have been in the mood to spend the entire day outside, because we also grilled for dinner: cauliflower steaks, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, and Arrington Firefly Rose!
Has the summer heat hit you yet? I saw that Denver had snow…crazy!
