So we downloaded the Couch 2 5k app, and started with that. It was awesome being there at the start of her journey- that I remember so well. This program has you walk for 90 seconds, and run for 90 seconds. And I SO remember when I started out, being out of breath, barely making it the full 90 seconds, at the end of it, feeling like you just ran a marathon.
She asked me if this was how I started, I said yes. I told her someday she could run a marathon too, to which she replied "in my dreams!" We're going to start running together once a week, I'm so excited for her!!
After my Chicago Marathon I went to Wisconsin to visit my sister, her hubby and my precious, sweet, adorable nephew Rainor. I just cannot get enough of his adorableness!
While I was there we went to a dairy farm to get some raw milk from their grass fed organic cows. I had never tried raw milk before and it was delicious!

|Thanking them for the steak the night before. |
(And apologizing too, of course. I can't help it.)
The calves started licking my brothers knee, and I have never seen him laugh so hard! Anytime I need cheering up, I just look at these pictures!
My brother and I went to the Eisenbahn trail for a 3 mile run. For the first time ever, he ran a full mile nonstop. So proud of my little bro!!
I had an awesome time, it was the perfect way to recover from a bad marathon!
My BIL said I should change the name of my blog to "From ice cream to marathon, and back to ice cream."
Haha! He's so funny.
Have you had raw milk?
What's your fave froyo flavor? (This one is mine, pumpkin and cheesecake. Yummm!)
