I am an AUNT + Running Talk (TOL #79)

Good morning and happy Thursday! I don’t know about you, but this week is a flyinng by, which I am totally okay with 😉 In all honesty, it’s been a busy and kind of overwhelming week (for whatever reason). But, thankfully, after a muuuch needed restful Wednesday, I am feeling much more put together and ready to tackle one last ‘week day,’ (yes I count Fridays as the weekend) before diving headlong into a RACE WEEKEND!! Woohoo! Landon and I are running our first half marathon together, on Sunday. I am super pumped and excited to race together and share this experience with my best friend. Make sure to follow along on Instagram and Facebook for all the fun updates. I’ll be sharing a full race recap, Tuesday, so make sure to look for that too!


Before, I continue any further, thank you Amanda for hosting one of my favorite posts of the week! Make sure to follow her blog, here. Her food always makes me drool.


This marathon training is starting to get intense and I am loving how it is stretching me and pushing me to do things I wouldn’t normally do. Yesterday, I ran 7 miles before Landon left for work. ‘Free running’ (i.e. no stroller) feels amazing and I am so thankful to be able to run without pushing the little man along. I mean, it is so much fun to share runs with him, but my arms get quite tired after a while. 🙂 I don’t know if any of you guys experience this, but I think my body was asleep for the first 4 miles or so, because after mile 4, I finally got into that ‘groove’ and took off. I’ve now decided I should give myself a solid 30 min to wake up before cranking out miles outside. Or maybe I should just drink a cup of coffee.


THIS FLAVOR THOUGH. So, a couple months ago, I tried the Cookies and Cream flavor and wasn’t super impressed. I love Halo Top, but this was the one flavor I didn’t fall in love with. But, last Friday, Landon picked up a pint for me and after digging into it, I fell head over heals for this flavor. I think the last time I ate the Cookies and Cream I didn’t let it thaw enough? I don’t know…either way, I am happy to enjoy this flavor again and you can bet that I will be purchasing some more, soon!


We are best friends. And yes, even my normal people clothes talk about running.

Speaking of normal people clothes, have you guys heard about Roolee yet? I am currently gushing over every.single.piece of clothing and even more excited about their MOM line! Someone, finally had the genius idea of carrying nursing friendly (and) adorable DRESSES! I am so excited to snag a couple of these dresses for my wardrobe! (Not sponsored, just sharing a new find!) 

And one last, EXCITING NOTE before finishing this post….


My brother and sister-in-law, just had their baby girl, Nora almost two weeks ago! I haven’t had a chance to meet her, sweet, snuggly self yet (since we live so far from them…) but I seriously am DYING to. Nora, Aunt Bethany loves you so much! Can’t wait to give you about a bazillion kisses.

Also, isn’t she such a gorgeous baby?!


And I will just leave you with this sweet face!

Hope you guys have a great rest of your day.
