Running for Biscuits

I had some great company on my run tonight! These girls are rocking these runs.

P, the older little, continues to get a little discouraged. She thinks she always has to be first and struggles when she isn’t. Then she gets sad and starts going slower. I get to work on my running lung capacity by yelling “C’mon, P! You can do it! Come on come on!”

A, the littlest little, is a CHAMP! She runs, then jumps up on benches and runs down those, and then jumps down, and keeps right on running. She’ll be great at a mud run in the future.

It’s nice to have running company. The conversation is interesting and people cheer for us along the way.

Now we celebrate with Mexican food.

I ALMOST dropped my socks in the toilet while I was changing.

Luckily, with my cat-like reflexes, I was able to grab them at the last second before they hit water.

Snow in April? Ok. Cool.
Grill all the things!

My nieces have listened to me talk about running for years and have cheered for me at races. They got so excited listening to me talk about it that they wanted to start running!

We’re doing Color Me Rad at the end of the month, so we practiced today. They did great! Their dad and I set a nice easy pace and the little one had no trouble keeping up. The older one got a little discouraged but she finished strong. 

This is why I run, guys. I run to get my nieces excited about living a healthy lifestyle. When they see me in running shoes with my hair in a pony tail, sweaty and red faced after a hard run and they tell me that they want to be cool like their aunt and go running…that does good things to my heart. I’m so proud of them.

Early morning miles make early morning biscuits taste even better.

I ran through our subdivision this morning. Talk about hilly. Check out the change in elevation. You’re going to have to really search to find a long stretch of flat in East Tennessee.

Now please excuse me while I go devour some biscuits and gravy.

It’s sangria time!

A slow three miles tonight with the pups. We had to stop at the water fountain so they could get a drink.

After we were done, Cody laid down in front of their water bowl and refused to get up. Sometimes, he’s a little dramatic.

I was going to rest my knee tonight after my bike ride yesterday, but it was just too beautiful to not be outside.

Maybe I’ll rest tomorrow.

National Pet Day.

I love these two like crazy, even if the big one does eat grass like a cow and the little one would rather chase rabbits than potty in the morning.

Great day for a ride.

Knee feels strong.

Butt feels sore.

Twelve plus miles before dinner. Riding past Calhoun’s probably wasn’t my best idea, however. I almost stopped to get BBQ.

Wind in my hair, bugs in my teeth.

Perfect ride.
