Sunday Links! PR’s and a New Bike! 4.10.16

Oh hello again Sunday 🙂 The day where I very consciously try to never leave our apartment. We were flying around all week, working late, running long, cooking and cleaning nonstop, driving all over the place… It’s good to be relaxed at home finally 🙂

A little synopsis of fun yoga poses 🙂

Also, BIG NEWS! We ran a half marathon on Saturday, and WE BOTH PR’ed!!! Yes, the course was indoors, flat, no hills or wind… but it felt so good to run as hard and as focused as I could. Patrick has always had bold goals for his runs; I never really thought about competing with myself for a PR. But on Saturday, at the halfway point I realized I could hit my PR if I maintained my pace, so I honed in on my goal and MADE IT HAPPEN [by approximately a minute and a half haha] It felt SO good to finish! I am super happy 🙂

I’ve had some awesome eats this week too. Protein bites with peanut butter (HOLY MAN DELICIOUS). A delicious egg scramble this morning for breakfast. I even had coffee every single day this week. Almost my entire mug every day! I rarely drink more than 8-10 oz a day, but this week required it haha.

We also got to drive to Chicago to visit our great friends Cassie and Leke, their new sweet sweet new baby and two wonderful kids! We went bowling, got Chinese, and then went glow-in-the-dark mini golfing haha! What a jam-packed day! Guys, I really don’t even like holding babies, but she is so adorable and calm and curious, I couldn’t stop holding her! I can’t wait to see them more often and watch her grow!
