Look who made her debut today!
This is little miss Sophie, Jon’s boss’ new baby girl. She arrived late last night, so we stopped by to see her this morning. We don’t mess around when it comes to babies.
Isn’t she beautiful?
You know what else is beautiful this morning? The weather!!
I’ve been pining away for cool fall mornings. Isn’t fall such a wonderful season? This morning we headed out for a run, and my first step out the front door took my breath away! I didn’t check the temperature, but it had to have been in the upper sixties. My fingers actually got a bit achy cold during our run.
I soaked it up.
For our training run this morning, we ran 400 meters (.25 miles) four times (with a quick walk break in between) at the pace we would run a 5k. We normally run a 5k at about a nine and a half minute mile, but it was hard to keep that slow of a pace when only running 400 meters at a time. So, we ended up averaging about an 8:30 pace on each one.
We’re incorporating this type of run each week in an effort to improve our half marathon time. We ran our first half marathon in 2 hours, 9 minutes and 20 seconds. I was actually pretty proud of that, considering it was our first one. And considering Jon and I aren’t the speediest runners around, it will be a challenge for us to improve upon that. But we love a good challenge:)
Before we hit up the hospital this morning, we ran by Panera because the husband has been itching for a breakfast bagel sandwich. It’s a special treat for us to go grab breakfast or coffee together in the morning…and it totally makes my whole morning.
I went all out and got an iced half caf americano:)
Once I got home, I made up a quick Ezekiel english muffin with a smear of natural peanut butter and sliced banana. It paired perfectly with my iced coffee.
A cool, breezy morning + breakfast out with the husband + sweet baby time = the best morning ever. The rest of this day has a lot to live up to!
