I didn’t run this weekend. 5 miles was on my training plan but I just wasn’t up for it (read: I had a million excuses for why I didn’t wanna...waaaaah!). There were a bunch of things I needed to get done and it was pouring rain outside. The old me would have run in the rain and felt like a total badass for it. The Mommy me is currently fatigued and a little more accident prone. So, I didn’t run this weekend. But, I got all my shit done so I would have time today to get a run in. Today was a perfectly cool and cloudy day for a run, and I needed to clear my mind and get some jitters out. At first, my plan was just to get my sneakers on and go out 15 minutes and back 15 minutes. But when I got to 15 minutes, I felt like I could do more...so I ran further from home. And then after that, I realized I had more in me, so I went a little further. One mind game after another and before I knew it, I clocked in the 5 miles I was supposed to do this weekend. It was just what I needed before hopping on a plane for a quick work trip (but my first away from #missmiradylan). And because it’s #nationalyogamonth and my #slamsister @megreichert86 challenged me to strike a yoga pose, I’m doing cow face pose (is that what it’s called?) in the airport. 😝 Now I get to tag a few more mamas running #rockthecreekrelay and challenge them to get their yoga on. @s.l.a.m.dc @megan_mannina and @heatherdcrd - you’re up!
And just like that...baby girl is 6 months old. 😍 #missmiradylan #babygirl #6months
Heirloom tomatoes + peaches + burrata + balsamic glaze = 🙌🏽 We took a family trip to the farmers market this morning and found gorgeous tomatoes from @potomac_vegetable_farms, had some peaches at home that needed to be eaten today, and grabbed some burrata too for a simple yet delicious salad to go with some grilled salmon and delicata squash. Love building meals around what we find at the farmers market 😋 #farmersmarketfinds #itsstillsummer
A few days late but this little gal is 5 months old! #missmiradylan #babygirl
