Abs, Running, Recipe, and Crafts – How Random?

Hey there friends! I’ve been wanting to incorporate some ab exercises into my workout routine, probably something that I would do at home after work. I found this “Dozen” ab workout that I’m going to start this week.

I was on the Runner’s World website over the weekend and I read this article and wanted to share it.

It’s All Working Out

“Running is just a form of exercise until you love it.”  FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 2015

I found it super comforting to know that running, the more I do it, the more it will become something that I love instead of just a form of exercise. I am starting to understand what it’s like to be “in love” with running. It has definitely become something that I “get to do” instead of something I “have to do” and I’m hoping this relationship will continue to evolve throughout the course of my marathon training. My favorite quote from this article:

It’s all just exercise, just going through the motions until at some point, if you’re really lucky–something clicks. And it’s never the same after that.

Dear running,

I can’t wait to continue our relationship. Hopefully you fall in love with me quickly and can refrain from breaking my heart – or breaking/straining/pulling/tearing/scraping any of my body parts or muscles. Let’s keep this a neat and clean, PG-rated relationship, mmmmk? I’ll do my best not to cuss at/about you, if you do your best to keep me healthy and happy and on the road to marathon glory!

All my love, sweat, and tears,

Katherine

Yesterday, the hubs and I tried this recipe out for dinner:

Instead of white rice we used brown rice, and I also added some broccoli into the sauce for our veggie. It was so easy and the only thing I had to buy at the store was the chuck roast – I already had the rest of the ingredients! This was definitely a hit. I love crock pot meals!

Last weekend when we were cleaning out the garage, I asked the hubs to cut up some 2×4 boards we had saved from when we put up our fence in the backyard. I want to use them to make this adorable fall pumpkin craft!

I’ve found so many cute fall crafts on Pinterest – I can’t wait to get started on them!

Thanks for letting me share all my randoms today! I hope you found something interesting or informative amidst this plethora of topics! Tomorrow I promise will be a little more organized!

What’s your relationship with running like? Has it changed over the years?

What’s your favorite season? Favorite time of year for running?

Are you crafty? > I have to have a lot of help from my friends, I’m impatient!

    The running thing is so true. I find when I’m doing it with my kids that it is so much fun as a group activity and we all enjoy it together.

    I used to not be a big fan of running but now I’m totally addicted! I love to run in the fall the most, even though summer is my favourite season:)
