Eating Like A Hobbit!

My 3rd run this week but 2nd time in one week running with my buddy Val--that never happens. This run, however, didn't feel as awesome as the one on Christmas Eve. I encouraged him to go ahead and leave me because I felt guilty holding him back. That's Val below on the left leaving me in the dust.
We always run an out-and-back on this trail. For the second half of the run the sun was up and on my back and I finally began to feel a little warm! 
I don't think this is a SPOILER, but just in case: SPOILER ALERT:: Like everybody else, I was REALLY looking forward to season 2 of Serial podcast. 

Since I was actually running alone, I listened to the 2nd episode of Season 2 on my run today. I'd already heard the first episode but wanted to listen to the 2nd episode before forming an opinion about the story. Unfortunately I have to say, I'm not a fan of the Bergdahl story. Like not at all. Two of my nephews are Marines....and they also have no opinion about what happens to Bowe Bergdahl.
He knows he's guilty, the Army knows he's guilty, that's not even a question. Whether or not he pays for or has already paid for his crime makes no difference to me whatsoever.  Is that what this season is about? Is there more to this podcast or did I zone out while running and miss it? Is it that I just lack compassion (very, very likely)?  

 Once again, I started my run promising myself I would do 3 miles and that's it. But once I  got going, I ended up wanting to do a few more. That always happens to me, and I'm not complaining! Six miles at 12:46. I'll take it! 
After the run we hit up Jack's Diner. I switched things up a bit today and ordered MENUDO instead of french toast for breakfast. It really hit the spot (if you like cow tripe like I do! lol)!! 
After I got home I went all Hobbit and had Second Breakfast in the form of leftover French Toast casserole from Christmas morning. Still YUMMM. 
And then after Second Breakfast, I met up with BD and the Puff to watch THE FORCE AWAKENS! 

Elevenses was nachos with extra nacho cheese and jalapenos washed down with Diet Coke. Can't watch a movie without both of these. 
After that EPIC movie, you better believe we left the theater in search of lunch. 

The Force Awakens...Have you seen it yet?? Go see it! Go see it!
