If it were up to me, I'd be up at 8am on a Saturday morning to start my run. Run buddy Val thinks it's totally normal to head out at 5am. Sheesh, I'd have to be up at 4-something to be ready to run at 5? Umm, no.) Our compromise is to head out at 6:30am.
Some Saturday mornings the only way I can get to the trail is by constantly repeating to myself that I will only do 2 miles and then I can go home and back to bed. Of course once I'm warm, I hardly ever stop at mile 2.
6 miles at 12:52 pace. Not too shabby.
Our Post Run breakfast at Jack's is also better before the crowds converge and turn the place into a zoo. Today I had the Huevos Rancheros instead of french toast.
Yesterday after breakfast we ran a few errands that included the Drive-Thru at Krispy Kreme.
I never used to believe I had a trigger food. I've heard the term Trigger Food used a lot and never could imagine what kind of food would cause me to me to overeat to the point that I'm not in control.After eating one KK donut, I asked Val to put the box in the trunk. He pulled over and did that for me. I now totally know what my Trigger Food is and I was alarmed at the reaction I had to these.
I eat donuts all the time and I like them a lot. For some reason, these were on a different level.
No thanks, mine are good.
I did pick up a new cap for my Amphipod handheld. I used to have the one that you pull open with your teeth, but it was getting pretty gross from teeth marks and water crud.
And I totally hated the way my handheld bottle was constantly leaking. Sometimes it was because I forgot to close the cap after taking a sip but it always leaked a little bit even when it was completely shut.
I really do like the ergonomic style of the Amphipod bottle so I didn't want to have to buy a whole new leak-proof bottle. The new style of Amphipod lids have a one-way squeeze valve that doesn't seem to leak. I haven't tried it on a run yet but I have high hopes for this.
Later in the day we stopped for a late lunch/early dinner at one of my faves: Soup Plantation. Yum. I wish I could eat here more often.Kristina, for turning me on to this. It was hilarious! I totally want to date Aziz! Well, not really, because I don't want to date at all at this point in my life. But when I start dating again.....
Happy MLK day! I hope your 3 day weekend (if you have one) is AWESOME!
