A month ago I was on a flight back to Los Angeles after running the New York Marathon. November was an interesting month. I’ve never been the sick kid, but I managed to get a cold and a week later got the stomach flu. I ran random miles and did very little foam rolling (which I am regretting after today’s track workout). November was pretty blah. I didn’t feel like my energetic self. The month ended on a high with Thanksgiving in Michigan, and going into December I’m feeling re-energized, re-inspired, and ready to run! Here I am with the fam in Michigan 🙂
After four restful days in Michigan, Brent and I got back to LA late Saturday night. Sunday morning we made the trip to Home Depot to buy our first Christmas tree. Baby steps. We’re starting with a 4 footer.
December means it’s also officially advent calendar time! Alaina and I make one every year and here’s what we have planned for the 2015 season. FYI the hot model is a drink at Playa Provisions. We’re not going shopping or aspiring models. All are welcome to join in on the fun!
And December is also a birthday month in the Lowry family. Brent turns the big 3-2 tomorrow. We’re celebrating at Providence, the #1 Jonathan Gold restaurant. I can’t wait!
And in MAJOR running news, Alaina being the BEST gift giver in the world and the most thoughtful person ever gifted me a personalized running training plan from one of my favorite bloggers, The Runner’s Plate. I get prescribed workouts with specific paces based on past performance and strength training routines. Super exciting! Alaina’s exact words were “It’s about time you have someone pushing YOU!” I can’t wait to share my progress and I’m hoping to be challenged. Finished with day 2 today!
I’ll leave you with the most ridiculous email I got from LAUSD today.
I’m not quite sure what’s dangerous about this temperature.
Thinking about calling tomorrow to tell them I need assistance.
