I'm still pretending like it's spring here in Washington, despite the fact that some of the higher elevation towns near me got a dusting of snow this morning. Um, really, Mother Nature? We put up with your 9 months of rain & cloud cover without so much as a peep, but snow in April? We need to have a talk.
Once again, poor photography skills requires me to use more pictures than necessary to depict exactly what I'm wearing.
Sweater - Ann Taylor Loft. New, purchased over the weekend at their 40% off sale.
Tank top - Ann Taylor Loft. (Are you shocked? ;-)) I love how their colors across multiple years/seasons coordinate.
Jeans - Nordstrom, I think the brand is Vigoss. I bought them in the junior's section a few years ago.
Heart necklace - Tiffany & co. Valentine's gift from Michael.
Shoes - I like these shoes & wanted to show you additional details, but it was hard to get it all into one picture. So, here are two for you. :-) They are Alfani, from Macy's. I got them at the end of the season last summer for $12.
And why yes, that is a chip on my big toe, courtesy of my run this weekend. I like to keep it classy here.
I would describe yesterday's food as very average. The reason? I got up really early to eat/digest before my run, & then didn't eat lunch for 7 more hours. That meant I was ravenous by lunch, which I'm sure you can tell by my intake. I went over my calories by 500+. Ick. :-( Fail. Sadly, my stomach was still growling when I went to bed last night. I think my stomach believes that I ran a marathon yesterday, vs a 5K.
- Breakfast (pre-run) - coffee & peanut butter toast
- Snack (right after race) - banana & mini Starbucks vanilla scone
- Lunch - Chipotle burrito bowl. Entire thing. I ALWAYS eat 1/2 of this & save the rest for a second meal, but yesterday? Not so much. And I finished off my gigantic lunch with a handful of Easter candy.
- Dinner - 2 glasses of celebratory wine, 1 piece of vegetarian pizza and a side of tomatoes.
I'm taking a rest day today, so that I can kick off my 1/2 marathon training tomorrow! Super excited for that.
Question of the day:
If you're a mom, or you run with/know other moms in this situation, how do you handle races? Who watches your kids? I don't have family close by, all races start before I could get a babysitter to my house, and if I have my husband watch the kids, then no one can be there with me. And yesterday I discovered that it would be a lot more fun to attend with someone else.
