Pizza, chocolate, and macaroni and cheese! And it was pretty awesome!!!! 😄 I’ve been joking that I’m going to need to eat a bunch of pizza before all my long runs/races now, but it was probably just a fluke.
‘Twas another busy day for the Daileys. We didn’t really get started until 9 am when I finally woke Luke up, but I used the time to eat breakfast, make coffee, and drink lots of water, so it worked out.
He took me to a trail to do my long run, and while I was doing that he mailed a package to his mom and siblings, and picked me up a new bladder for my hydration pack since I’m going to be needing that soon (and because our ferret chewed up the other one…).
As for my run, well, I had pretty low expectations after yesterday. But boy was I wrong! It ended up being amazing!
I started the first mile at what I originally thought was a way too speedy pace. It was kinda cold and really windy today, and I was only wearing a thin long sleeve shirt when I should have worn a jacket. So I was mostly just trying to keep myself warm, but I ended up going a little bit faster, especially during the last mile.I ended up running my fastest 5k of the year! Yay new PRs. And this 5 miler ended up being about 5 minutes faster than last week’s, which is pretty awesome.
I brought a granola bar with me on this run and I think that ended up helping a lot. Especially the last 2 miles. That’s when I usually start getting really tired, but today they ended up being the best part of my run! Well it was either that or my half marathon shirt. I’m pretty sure it’s lucky. 😉
After my 5 miler my wonderful husband took me to On the Border for lunch. Yay chicken fajitas!! Then we went to the mall where he got me a few books that I’ve been wanting for a while. Running and reading are two of my favorite things. So reading about running is pretty much as good as it gets in my book (pun totally intended).
After the mall we went to vintage stock where we got a little bit nerdy. We got 2 seasons of anime, a Zoidburg Funko Pop, and a super awesome Pokemon card and a Pokemon hat. Yeah, all that together was almost $90, but it was totally worth it!
On the way home we stopped at a grocery store for chap stick but ended up getting 3 boxes of cereal. I mean, you can’t really pass up cheerios that cost $1.99 per box.
So my run started at 10:30 but I didn’t get to shower until 3:40. Let me tell ya, walking around in sweaty dri fit clothes for extended periods of time is no fun…But aside from that today was lots of fun!
Now that we’re finally home and it’s too cold outside to grill, we’re going to watch one of our animes and probably play Pokemon because we’re nerds like that. 😁😉

How many questions is too many questions to ask at the end of a blog post? 😉
