Good morning and happy Friday!
How is it already Friday?! This week has just flown by.
My Thursday was spent in South Tampa. I had a social media training to attend that was from 9-1; it turned out to be really good and educational. It was not however good that I skipped breakfast AND coffee (I’m not counting the two tiny cups I was able to scrounge up at the venue). 1:00 could not come soon enough! I was sooo hungry!
I invited one of my coworkers (Max) to lunch. I was too hungry to decide where to go, so she picked. We went to BurgerFi in Hyde Park. I had never even heard of the place. It was really good, but…I’m used to bigger burgers. 😉
Afterwards we headed over to Starbucks to get some fuel to make it to 5:00. I kept things simple and got a grande Blonde Roast. On the way back to my car, we saw the (second) cutest Australian Shepherd puppy. Like super super cute! Unfortunately though, I think I freaked out this puppy’s dad with my overly enthusiastic reaction to his bundle of fluff. I’m a dog-person! I can’t help it!
During lunch I was able to trick Max into going on a run with me after work. Yes! Once 5:00 rolled around we headed over to Bayshore to run the Riverwalk. It was really hot out when we started, but a breeze picked up that made it feel much nicer out. We ended up doing 2.62 miles. She’s not a runner, so I initially told her we’d play it by ear and go out for one or two miles. She did a great job and it was so awesome having a buddy there to chat with. 🙂
I even made a little deal with her… for every run she does with me, I will go on a bike ride with her.
On the way home, I stopped by Vitamin Shoppe and then grabbed a Chipotle salad to-go. I had a lovely dinner date planned with some Grey’s Anatomy. 😉
And, on a side-note…
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to the BEST parents a girl could ask for!!!! Can you believe these crazy kids have been married for 32 years?!?! 04-23-1983 ❤
Questions of the day
Do you prefer solo-running or having a running buddy?
— I used to prefer solo running, but after training for the marathon with the Boy, I’ve noticed (since he retired from running) that I’ve missed the companionship.
