1. The Brooks Utopia Softshell II. Now, I do believe this is a winter running jacket but according to Jenn's cutting edge sense of style, it also doubles as "evening wear" with a big scarf and cowboy boots:) Lots of running cowboys in Minnesota..... I haven't run in this yet in order to review it in that way but I LOVE the way it fits me and I love the print! Nice work Brooks!!
Attempted a photo here but taking a picture of myself into a mirror that is significantly shorter than me is hard-ha!
Factory Photo=Much better!!
2.HS Cross Country
What a joy this season of Cross Country was for me. My first experience with this sport!! I LOVE my daughter's spirit. Her team! Such a special year for her AND for me!
I learn a lot when I pick up the laundry and junk all over the floor in her room;) Inspired by my child when I find such treasures. I'm also laughing and thinking it's good she has fast legs since "beliveing" is not a word-ha!
3. This man.
Just enjoyed a date weekend with this guy:) 16 years of date weekends and they never get old.
4. Scarf, Hat, Mitten, Boot season!!!
I have carefully narrowed down my scarf collection to only a few that I think I will wear. I think I had some difficulty with the "narrowing down" part.....
5. THIS chapstick
Who says you can't eat chapstick.....I'm going through this stuff faster than a pack of gum. My tongue is also raw from licking my lips. A torn meniscus and a big fat ankle resulting in a stretch of ZERO miles running left me thinking it would be a good idea to leave some of the ACTUAL cake out of my diet for awhile:)
6. Perfect fall running weather!!!
I LOVE fall! Other than the nasty wind, give me COLD and crisp any day!! I've been running consistently and seeing my fitness increase here over the past couple of weeks. My pace getting a bit faster and feeling much stronger at the end of longer runs! Getting excited about challenging myself through the winter and grabbing a Boston PR at 38! Planning to do a simple weekly training update through this cycle.
7. The RINK!!!
Hockey has officially started and as a mom of 3 hockey kids, this is my winter home! Really excited for a season of traveling with friends and cheering on my kids!!!
And I could list 107 more:) Happy Sunday!!
