Fast Friday

In case you missed it, here are the latest posts:

Keeping Yourself Safe on a Solo Run 

Is It A Hard Run or Junk Miles

What a week this has been! Thank heaven it's Friday.

The week started out by me making a new soup in my attempt to eat more veggies. I found a butternut squash soup and not one person in our family took more than a few bites. It just wasn't our thing. Plus it was an awful lot of work for not liking it haha.

We got a new Christmas book (affiliate link) this year from my uncle Guy Francis. He is an illustrator and I love his work! 

We went to church on Sunday and the girls were best friends the whole time.

Tuesday started out with a bang when Trevon went to lock the door and his key broke in half. 

When we went to get our keys copied and while we waited for Trevon (No way was I unloading all the kids for 5 minutes and then loading them back up again), the kids entertained themselves with dancing to Christmas music. Then when Trevon got back, we discovered that our car battery randomly died and we had to get it jumped. 

I went to pick J up from school one day this week and we got to see a turkey in disguise she made for November. She disguised it as a hiker, which made me happy, but I'm pretty sure the astronaut under hers won the turkey that didn't get eaten award. 

It doesn't matter who chili it is outside, V wants to ride his bike. We spent the morning riding/walking in circles until it was time to go pick M up from preschool. 

V has recently learned how to give kisses and will randomly pull any of us girls close to give us a kiss and a hug. It's super sweet but I might be a little worried about his future haha. 

Here's a blurry picture of some giant size grapes we had for dinner a couple nights ago. 

I got some good runs in this week. No pain in my knee and I feel like I'm ready to push myself a little more even though I'm not really training for anything. I'll probably start adding some more miles but taking the pace easy for now. I've also been working on my arms and core strength more than normal. 

What was your highlight of the week?

What are your weekend plans?

Stay tuned for some really fun things coming in the next little while! I will be doing a month-long wellness challenge soon and you don't want to miss out on the fun and the prizes! 


  1. Hey Jenny I'm so happy that you're running again! I know it's been a long road. Yeah, butternut squash soup...I've tried...I've really tried. The best I've ever done was mediocre and like you say a ton of work. Someday I'll find the right recipe but I've failed so many times that I'm not really looking anymore;-)

    1. Tha k you so much!! It has been a long time. I’m so happy that I’m not the only one who doesn’t seem to like it. I’m pretty sure with most veggie recipes people claim to like it and I can tdigure our why haha.
