Running

My brother and I have started a really cool tradition of running every time we are together. I usually see him over the weekends so we will go on long runs Saturday or Sunday mornings. I look forward to our runs so much! It's been so great living so close to he and his family because we have lived so far from each other for several years now. But now, we are only 1 1/2 hrs from each other which is wonderful! We are working on moving our whole family to Texas ;)

I don't know if I have told you guys this, but he and I have signed up for the Chicago marathon. HOLY COW. So exciting and yet very nerve racking. This past Saturday we ran
14 miles, which by the way is the longest I have ever run. It was actually not bad at all, despite the fact that we ran at 5:00a.m. which was really 4:00a.m. because of daylight savings.

What I want you to know, is the difference between girl and guy runners. On my long runs, I bring water and gummies to eat. When my brother runs, he brings M&Ms and snickers bars! I just can't fathom eating chocolate while I am running. It cracks me up. This was the picture I took of all the stuff we wanted to bring with us. Everything chocolate is Brian's..
