Lazy Saturday

It was pouring this morning when we (me and my husband) woke up, so we declared it lazy Saturday. Usually we run despite the weather, but I run for fun and sanity and getting soaked didn’t seem like it would bring me either of those.

I lazed on the couch reading Women Who Run With The Wolves for a few hours – which I think I really needed. Then I decided I wanted to make pumpkin bread, but I needed applesauce, so it was a good excuse to get dressed and venture into the world.

After procuring applesauce and some honeycrisp apple juice (did you know that’s a thing? I didn’t, but now I do and I can’t quit) I made and we had pumpkin bread for brunch.

The weather was cool and overcast and I thought a little run around the neighborhood would shake the ants out of my pants.

Now we’re back on the couch watching mocking Leprechaun and seriously considering a ridiculous bed time.

I declare lazy Saturday a striking success!

Farthest distance in 2 yrs. I beat my pace goal, and felt like I could have kept going (if the parking meter wasn't about to expire, right?). So thrilled with this weather and this run and that I get to enjoy such gorgeousness on a regular basis! #nikeplus #nofilter #happyrunner #livelifemakewaves

Apples, cheddar, and tea. A perfect Sunday evening snack.

It wasn't easy to get out the door this morning. My mood was poor, my park's been usurped by ACL and the weather was cloudy and humid. But I got out and got 'er done and now I'm reaping the rewards of that blissfully tired, sunlight filtering through the curtains pre-noon nap. #nikeplus #nofilter #happyrunner #butlertrail

Just what I need: a delicious new page-turner and perfect sitting outside to read weather.

Cloudy, misty, rainy miles with no visible sunrise this morning. But the temps were cool and it was a lovely lovely run. #nikeplus #happyrunner #livelifemakewaves #atx #butlertrail

Oh hey, here's a thing I am proud of. Also, I'm way close to being able to do a real pull-up! #progressnotperfection
