Having 18 days notice to move yourself and all your stuff across the country has turned out to be quite the whirlwind! The past few days have been filled with planning, booking hotels, and packing up all of our stuff. The in-laws came over yesterday and all I can say is that they are packing machines, our kitchen was boxed up and in the garage in no time!
It sure is a strange feeling seeing your life in boxes.
Aside from everything I’ve had to do for the move this week, all of my spare time has been spent running! This was the peak week in my marathon training – 80 miles total (my highest week EVER) with a 22 mile long run (my longest training run EVER)to top it all of!
NO FOOD was safe within five feet of me for the 48 hours after that long run and this weekend I was a bottomless pit! Some of my tasty eats included…
Chocolate chip banana pancakes with eggs & bacon.
Homemade BBQ Chicken Pizza with avocado!
And a Chipotle steak burrito the size of a small baby.
Here are all the deets about this weeks training!
