Some of my favourite things…all in a day

Today was a day of favourites:
1) Waking to the sound of my baby girl in her crib next door and feeding her before getting ready to leave for my race. What a quiet house!
2) Running a personal best and capturing first female at the Burlington Robbie Burns 8 km in 27:43.
3) Enjoying emend, porridge, and a hot shower right after my race. I tell you, this race is one of my favourites because of the porridge and showers! Check out the picture take by Alan Brookes.
4) Coming home to my amazing husband and 3 sweet kids.
5) Eating a few olives and salmon with a spinach salad (maple syrup, olive oil, balsam. vinegar and garlic dressing of course) for dinner.
6) Drinking a non-fat Starbucks mocha (my treat to myself after a good race), a bit of red wine w/ dinner, and later tonight a cup of tea w/ lots of milk and a little bit of peanut butter brownie.
7) Spending the afternoon and evening w/ my family.

I am thrilled to have 2 personal best times so far in 2012 (10 km and 8 km). Hopefully I’ll keep up with this in my upcoming races! Set the bar high! There is no other way.

What we run for??? Krista DuChene all smiles with her porridge after racing home 1st Woman [6th overall] at Burlington Roadrunners’ Robbie Burns 8K [27:43] this morning! Results:

  1. So, this song came into my head when I read the title of your post (oh, and CONGRATS, BTW!!) The closest you and "Maria" get to your "favourite things" is, I think, "crisp apple streudels".
    Anyway, you remember this song, right (from "The Sound of Music"?)

    Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
    Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
    Brown paper packages tied up with strings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
    Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
    Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
    These are a few of my favorite things

    Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
    Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
    Silver white winters that melt into springs
    These are a few of my favorite things
