Morning Runs Outside & Bistro-ing With Mom

I don't know why it took me until July 1st to go running at 7am, but it was the best idea I've had in a long time. I had personal training on Tuesday morning, but I decided to run outside in my neighborhood instead of on the gym treadmill beforehand. Running outside with the elements and hills > running on a treadmill.

And do you see that average pace?! The 8's make me really happy...


I then raced to the gym and worked out with my trainer followed by 12 minutes of cooling down on the elliptical. I made the mistake of telling my trainer that my mom had tennis elbow, so he had me do every arm tricep/bicep exercise that could potentially help her…thanks mom. 


Mom and I worked the rest of the day, but I made sure to get her off her computer for some walking time in the afternoon…


Mom keeps telling me how happy she is to be here…to pick up my brother. So it was fitting that this was the last picture we received before he headed to the airport. He's currently on his way to LAX! 


After work, mom and I went to my favorite running store, where I turned her into a Brooks girl for life like myself. I've been running in the Pure Flows for a while now, but my shins are aching a little, so I went back to my trusty Ghosts - the 7's came out earlier this month! The most popular shoe at the store. Mom bought the Adrenaline GTS 14s. I've also been wanting to try out a running skirt for a while, so I bought a Mizuno skirt with matching top. Running shoes/clothes are the best way to motivate you to workout…


We went to dinner at The Wine Bistro after our shopping trip, and I absolutely loved it. Mom and I sat outside, sipped fun wines and ate great food…




How early do you run in the morning? 

What running shoe are you wearing right now?
