Brother-Runner

Ahh...so nice!

Picture perfect!  Foggy, sailboat and a pier!  
Met my brother for his first run.  I still haven't caught-up on my sleep from my new routine, but was glad I didn't miss our running date.  Sleeping in is great...I love sleeping, but there will always be time to sleep.  Met up at Ruston at 8am at it was perfect running weather.  A little cold and wet, but nothing horrible.  Nothing my cute Lulu Lemon top and Lucy running pants can't handle!  Love both these items.  I have been running in Nike tights forever and they are great, but the lucy tights are thicker and fit great.  The lulu lemon top is a little thicker than my usual winter tops so I stay nice and toasty with just the top...no layering.  Perfect!


My brother started stretching, I never stretch...before or after...very rarely.  We started our jog and it was nice just to hang out with my brother.  He works for a big company and heads up there PR department and travels the world so we don't get to see each other near enough.  I'm so excited that running might change all that.  We ran for a little less than a mile and walked.  We passed a female running group, 20-30 women getting started and then we started running again.  We walked, ran and then walked until the last 1/4 mile and then I told him we are running to a certain point...goals are way better than just stopping.  He did great and I know he will keep getting better if he keeps it up.



We went to Starbucks after to warm up and enjoy a skinny mocha and oatmeal!  And of course more chatting!  Best morning.  By the way have you tried the Skinny Mocha?  It's new?  I thought it just meant, NF milk and no whip...but no.  They now have skinny chocolate!  I usually only get 1-1/2 pumps of chocolate instead of the usual 3 pumps in my tall mocha...(I haven't been getting mocha lately, but when I do...this is what I did.)  With the skinny mocha the full amount is perfect.  Check it out...you will like it!

Starbucks explains it like this...
Haven’t tried it yet? Really, you should! A My Starbucks Idea suggestion brought to life, the new Skinny Mocha has the rich flavor of our Caffè Mocha, but with fewer calories - only 110 calories in a Tall (12 fl oz).  How did we do it? We kept all the things that you love about Mocha and came up with some alternatives for things you could do without.  It’s the perfect combination of espresso, bittersweet skinny mocha sauce and steamed nonfat milk, topped with foam in a light, decadent treat. This is one sweet chocolaty indulgence you can feel good about.


Let me know what you think?

Happy running!

Hi Jilly! It feels like we haven't connected in FOREVER. Thanks for the comment. :)

SUPER excited to see you going back to tris. I will be following along. I can't wait to really get into it this year - I loved the little taste I got last year. Great variety!!

YAY for running with your brother! I wish I could get some of my family on the healthy/running train...
