Medal Monday! Still riding high on yesterday’s PR. Crushing an almost 5 year old PR is more mental than physical. Now that I’ve ticked that one off my list I’m ready for a marathon PR in a few weeks. This weekend was doubly special because my little guy ran his first race - 26.2 m, possibly the cutest thing I’ve ever seen (I’ve rewatched the video at least 10 times since Saturday). @atlantatrackclub you put on an amazing race weekend! #medalmonday
NEW PR: 1:50:28, a PR of over 4 minutes in the middle of a 22 miler, which included oversleeping, tummy troubles, a bathroom break at mile 4, crazy hills when I’m used to training super flat... but it also included 22 miles with @befitdavis_coachbri who has kept me going this season through an injury, a crazy travel schedule, and more treadmill runs than I care to think about. She is real and funny and positive and motivates me to be confident and enjoy running. I didn’t tell her or anyone else how scared I was of this run today, but that was so unnecessary. I smiled and chatted the entire way through all 22 miles, and was so grateful getting to experience it with my coach at my side! I seriously was so relaxed throughout the entire half, I forgot to even be mad about the hills. Equally as amazing was seeing my husband, dad, and son just after mile 12... it was then that I got a sudden burst of energy from hearing them cheer and giving AJ a high five, and I finished with a 7:35 mile.... and now it’s time to TAPER and get ready for the big dance. I can’t wait for the marathon!!! #emilywaukee19 #publixatlantamarathon #newpr #teambfd #runlikeamother #tapermadness #beerme

Happy ❤️ Day to the man who always indulges my eccentricity, mostly because he’s just as odd, but also because he loves me more than I’ve ever been loved. You’re the best, Kenny G. #tbt to our first apartment in Logan Square, pre-marriage, pre-farm, pre-Hazel, pre-baby, and when we both had more hair and I still used Snapchat.
2 years ago today I found out I was pregnant with AJ. 5 years ago today I adopted Good Boy Charles, who I miss every single day. February 11 is a good day!
We had family photos this morning and it was 7 degrees so I decided to do an afternoon 16 mile long run (that’s also why I had make up on my face). Finally pain free today - just some hip tightness that loosened up pretty quickly. My confidence is returning and I’m so glad I listened to my body and took things easy (but still trained smart) during the last few weeks. Ready to start ramping back up, but before that I’m going to celebrate with tacos + margaritas for dinner! #teambfd #emilywaukee19 #marathontraining #nikerunning #tacos #runninginlipstick
Probably my favorite NOLA photo because it’s the realest. Frizzy hair and dehydration were 2 big themes of the week. Felt so good to see my colleagues who are friends in real life and it feels just as good to be home with my boys. Photo by JB.
Butternut squash + kale risotto - dairy free, of course... although we started AJs dairy trial this week, all said and done it will take 6 weeks if he passes each phase. I’ll be happy if we can just get to the nachos stage (step 4). Anyway, until then I’ll keep perfecting my dairy free recipes! #dairyfree #risotto #kale #squash #lacroix
