Here is a look at my run with Jacquelyn on Friday. I was tired and she wasn't feeling the run but I do love how the run was perfectly negative split without ever looking at our splits.
Cross country base training has begun so we are meeting 5 days a week to run. Here is a picture of us trying muscle milk. It isn't my favorite but I like to remind the kids to fuel their recovery. One of the girls came over this week and we made lemon blueberry scones from Shalane's cookbook as seen in the picture. They were really good.
We went on a family nature walk on Wednesday and then had some ice cream and Italian ice from Jeremiah's. Always too many sweets with the dr and kids!
I took the kids to an aqua park on Thursday and they had a blast. They loved the obstacle course especially after watching American Ninja Warrior this summer. They also took paddle boards out for the first time.
A girl only has a birthday once a year so I'll wrap up the birthday weekend tomorrow!
Hope everyone is having a great summer and staying cool on your runs!
