Tangents and too excited about this new gear…

(Leggings, top, shoes)

A full rest day on Sunday helped me to feel alive on my Monday run.  Also, my ears were free for the first time in months because it was warm enough to leave them uncovered.

I am Connor Mantz and Clayton Young’s biggest paparazzi.  I saw one of them running in a sauna suit.   Orlando is so soon.

12.5 miles for the day, and I have a new watch! My reasons for trying a new watch are pretty pathetic—> I just like trying new pieces of gear;).  Do they do Garmin leasing?  Luckily, my previous watch sold very quickly!

I’ll write a review on it when I run with it more, but so far, my favorite parts about the watch are how lightweight it is (only 39 g)and how bright the screen is.

Brooke wasn’t feeling good so the majority of the day was spent on the couch with her…. We watched A Walk to Remember and it still makes me sob all of these years later.

And Beck rose to the occasion of getting things done around the house.

Straight into tangents:

*My favorite sports bra ever is on major sale. I love the energy longline, and the ribbed detail makes me even happier.

*Just hydrating mid-long run with snow.  We were desperate. PS This friend of mine is an incredible runner.  Her whole family is!  Her brother was the FIRST person ever to break the 4-minute mile at the BYU indoor track recently.  The track is at elevation, plus it has tight turns (5 laps for a mile) and is incredibly hot.

They are an amazing family!

*How was this memory ten years ago?  We were taking Brooke to her dad’s house and had a blast together doing every touristy thing San Francisco had to offer.

*Tried and didn’t love.  It was easy to take in, but I did not like the flavor, and my stomach fell off after… Back to Maurten’s only.

*I try not to arrive to runs early (like I did last Friday) because it gives me plenty of time to overthink what I’m about to do… I’d instead feel rushed and not think about the run until I’m running.  I shouldn’t have time to take selfies and talk to my camera before a long run.

*We went through a muddy section on Friday, and due to the Vaporflys naturally being so light, it was wild how adding a bit of mud to the soles made each step feel so much heavier.  (Picture after I tried to clean them off in snow)

*I should probably work on my posture while working after a 23 miler.  This one pooped me out.
