Running + What Kind of Bagel Are You + On This Day


thinking out loud

Let’s start today with Heather’s running update!!

She’s up to running 30 minutes straight right now which I KNEW she could do. The best part is that lately she likes to run while talking to me on the phone. I distract her by talking endlessly about new makeup and how I have nothing to wear, can’t find my black leggings and then, as she approaches a mile mark, I cheer her on and say all sorts of things that maybe resemble coaching through childbirth.

You can do it! Just push, you are almost there! And then I throw in the ever classic – It doesn’t get easier you just get stronger!

She then tries to tell me that she needs to walk and catch her breath at which point I say, um hello you are talking to me on the phone and clearly at a conversational pace. I hear no labored breathing so you do not need to catch your breath, you only think that you do. Keep going.

Maybe my new career should be motivational run coaching via ear bud during a runner’s workout.  

So what kind of bagel are you?

I spotted this from Newsday and found it to be fairly accurate!

what kind of bagel are you

I am a total cinnamon raisin bagel with all of the characteristics of my other favorite, the whole wheat bagel, too. Egg bagels were never my thing which makes sense to me now because I have zero interest in plants and would never wear mom jeans. Do the mom jeans wearing people realize they are sporting mom jeans? Mom jeans don’t even appear comfortable, let alone flattering in any way. I will never understand.

Rainbow bagels are pretty but filled with food coloring. I don’t want to vlog and will never organize my Instagram library of photos so there’s that. Hey pumpernickel people – how do you not own a television?

On This Day:

Should we discuss that a year ago right now I was tied up in nerves knowing the Bar Mitzvah was only a few days away?! Can we believe it will all be a year ago this weekend?

10/12/14: Workout Recap

I pulled this flashback photo from the workout recap post. It’s 3 years later and I am still running in Adidas Energy Boosts! Actually, I think it’s going to be 4 years now of running in my Boosts. Definitely my most favorite running shoes ever. 🙂

    My ultimate favorite bagel is a blueberry bagel, but out of those above a whole wheat one wins! I’d say the description is pretty accurate too! And my favorite running shoes are UA speed form apollo vents, and they’ve been for years now 🙂

    I feel like I’m a mix of whole wheat and everything but also the messy hair characteristic of pumpernickel. That’s so funny how someone put that together. Finding the best running shoes is the best. I’ve been using Brookes Ravennas for almost 7 years now.

    I am whole wheat which is what I always order. However, my skin broke out yesterday which is so random for me! I have no idea why it happened but its really annoying. And I probably won’t beg anyone to come to a spin class with me. But overall, whole wheat is definitely the closest match.
