There is something to be said about taking time to be out in nature and enjoy a few minutes of PEACE.. Last week our world was OFF, Muscle Man was out of town and I was left with the Little Studs. With the help of Tall Sister we got out of the house and went to the park. There were so many kids, parents, weirdos, etc.... but when we left the park area and stood by the lake it all melted away and there was QUIET. I urge you to get outside and find your quiet.
Yes folks the Tall Mom household has a need ride!! You will find me pulling up to races in my "Mommy Tank" Jeep Liberty. The V6 engine is just enough to get up and go on the freeway, it has a cozy cabin for my long legs, and the Little Studs fit perfect in the back. If you are in the market in the Puyallup, WA area let me know because Helmut was amazing to work with :)
Have I mentioned how much I love Muscle Man?? Yes, OK good.. He knows I have been disappointed with my eating so he made an uber healthy meal on Monday.. Mashed Cauliflower, the boys think it was Potatoes don't tell, and chicken skewers. YUMMY!! After this meal I felt so light and healthy. Score for a PERFECT Summer plate.
Pacing and Gear:
I am working on my PACER skills for the upcoming You Go Girl Half Marathon when I pace TMB HERE for her sub sub 2 hour goal. I ran 5 miles yesterday (hit 80 miles for August!!! How are you all doing?) trying to keep the pace. One thing that I am NOT GOOD at is keeping a consistent pace, I speed up, I slow down, URGH!! I have less than a month to get it together... One thing that I must say is I am MOST comfortable in my Brooks Running EZ-T's HERE and a Running Skirt HERE or Running Skirt Capris.. I have tried other tops and bottoms and this is my uniform. The Brooks tops are long, fitted and made of super durable and soft fabric. The Running skirts are forgiving, girly and finish an outfit.
*****With the RAIN out there today I am reminded that Fall weather is coming which means NEW GEAR!! Here we go again..
- I have lots of products I am overdue on reviewing, including Somnio Running shoes HERE, an adorable scrabble tile necklace, headbands, water bottles, backpack, some fitness products and more... I am hoping to find the time and mental power to fill you all in ASAP.
- If you have a product you would like me to review please send me an email tallmomontherun (@) hotmail.
