198/365. a pleasant refueling mistake on a 13 mile run.

198/365. a pleasant refueling mistake on a 13 mile run.

i was dragging it a bit on a 13 mile run and thought i could use some easy energy so i made a pitstop at the house and grabbed what i thought was a bottle of honey from the pantry. downed a tablespoon and thought, “oooooh what delicious artisan honey is this? and how did it get such strong vanilla notes?

i turned the bottle over. aaaahhhhh, not honey after all.

day 4015 – 180/365. a rare family reunion!

day 4015 - 180/365. a rare family reunion!

wow, how time flies – we haven’t had this crew together for 6 years! since then some have been born, many have gotten bigger and at least one of us has gotten much smaller :-) always great to see family. odin had a grand time with his cousins.

i’m sure somewhere i have a photo of us the last time we got together that i should dig out.

as always, the odds are slim of getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time in family photos.

day 4005 – 170/365. father’s day: 2015 edition.

170/365. father’s day: 2015 edition.

tennis with odin ( CRUSHED HIM! ). “inside out” with odin ( awesome! ). aaand hockey practice with odin. all-in-all a spectacular father’s day. i did manage to squeeze in a 5 mile run too :-)

at the end of the day as i was putting odin to bed i thought it’d be fun to attempt a rare selfie with him and i. frida heard him laughing at all the failed shots and decided to check out what all the commotion was about.

163/365. a realization slowly dawns on me while using the new spotify running feature.

163/365. a realization slowly dawns on me while using the new spotify running feature.

i’ve been testing our the new spotify running feature ( more here ) and i love it. the commissioned originals playlists didn’t really do much for me. i’m sure they’ll figure that out, but i can run to the “electronic moves” playlist at 170-180 beats per minute all day long. not too many repeat songs after several hours of running. i only wish they’d let me “thumbs up/down” and make it easy for me to add songs to my own playlists.

i was enjoying it so much on an 8 mile run today that i thought they surely left money on the table because i’d gladly pay for this feature. then it occurred to me that i’m probably more valuable to some companies that would really like to know not just that i’m a runner but when i’m running and how often i run. right on cue, i heard an ad for a protein recovery beverage.

and then, a little more slowly than it probably should have, a lightbulb went off.
