First Post!

Welcome to my very first blog post! I’m just getting the hang of this, so bear with me por favor.  Here’s a little about me:  My name is Brooke and I love to run! A few months ago, I also began to follow several running blogs.  I realized, I’m doing the same thing that a lot of these bloggers are doing, which is running and thinking about running and reading about running and then fueling their runs with some good eats!  Now – I know that several bloggers that I follow actually get paid for what they do and have spent a lot of time creating a following and crafting each post.  I probably don’t have that kind of time, but I figured, why not?!  I’m about to enter my next decade (turning 30 in June!) so it’ll be a new goal in addition to my regular running goals.

I had a couple great runs this weekend.  Yesterday morning I headed to the Santa Monica Pier (I’m living in Los Angeles this year) and got in a nice 7 mile run.  It was HOT, even at 9:30! Lots of people out enjoying the weather.  Here are some pictures:

As a native Minnesotan, I'm not used to such consistently sunny weather!

Finished up the 7 miler (I love my Nikeplus running watch BTW - OBSESSED)

I stopped on the way home and decided to jump on the ol' bandwagon finally and try out these coconut waters.  Officially a fan.

Today, I ran with my two faves, my hubby and puppy, Kale and Buckley (respectively). We ran 4 miles down San Vincente (also a favorite LA run of mine). Screen Shot 2013-03-03 at 5.05.11 PM

We had a nice run, I love when they join me. I convinced Kale to run his first half-marathon with me (Safari Park in May) so I’m excited to do more runs with him. Buckley loves running too, but I typically don’t like taking him more than 4-5 miles because he starts lagging a bit and his tongue starts dragging on the ground (almost).

Well I think that’s enough for my first blog post, especially since I don’t have anyone following (yet)!! I’m optimistic though 🙂 So – this is the part where big name brands start sending me cool running swag to write about, right? 😉 Bye for now!
