So I got my race pictures back from the half marathon recently…
Turns out my horrible running form has not improved much. The picture below is one of my better pictures:
Also, it would appear that my eyes are closed a lot of the time when I run? Or I squint a lot? About 75% of the pictures look like I’m closing my eyes. My arms are still super awkward too. Whyyyyyyyyy. Interesting fact: the old man on the left side of the above picture tripped and fell at the end of the race, right next to me. It was super awkward because I didn’t know if I should stop and help him or just keep going. So…I hesitated and then…kept…running…because we were surrounded by people at the finish line…so…ya…don’t judge me. I totally would have helped him if he fell in the middle of the course. So there’s that.
The above picture is probably the best one of me. Get it? Because you can barely see me? Yep…
In other news, my arms are killing me, and P90X is pretty great so far. I’m basically already ripped. Don’t ask for proof.
See below for my latest favorites! I promise they’re not all as weird as the first one.
These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
Football Dog– I realize this is strange, but this is my most favorite gif in the history of gifs. There’s just something about a dog with arms, running towards me with a football, that always makes me laugh.
Quinoa Fruit Salad with Toasted Coconut Flakes– The thought of quinoa in a sweet dish intrigues me, and this recipe looks absolutely delicious and is crazy healthy!
I Assume They’re Not Running as Far – Hey, whatever makes us feel better, right?
Skinny Lemon Tilapia – I made this for dinner last night and loved it. Lemon and fish go so well together, in my opinion, and the addition of dill was super tasty.
Chandelier by Sia – I’m starting to really love this song, and the video is worth watching too. The little girl dances in such an innocent and free way that I find refreshing.
Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Granola Bars– I’ve been meaning to make homemade granola bars for a long time. Although I love my dark chocolate granola bars, these look quite delicious — I’ve been wanting to experiment with dates forever.
