Good morning and happy Thursday!
Yesterday was National Running Day! I didn’t have a great run, but I got it in and that felt great.
I made our usual Salad Pool lunch. I really digging the purple and green onions I have been adding; I typically don’t like onions in my salad, but these ones are GOOD.
Mom went into work for a few hours and asked if I could pick her up in my way over. She had a good day at work and even asked if we could go to Starbucks. How I could I say no to her?
We went by Starbucks and then grabbed PDQ to-go. I opted for a crispy chicken salad and fries.
I’ve noticed since I have been making my salads no restaurant salad even compares to it. I don’t mean to brag but my salads are BOMB! And…I do kind of mean to brag because salad is like the only thing I can successfully “cook”. 😉
After relaxing for a bit, I got ready for my run. It was a beautiful evening for a run, so I thought.
Once I started I got hot and sticky really fast, and there were a lot of gnats out. Yeah, pretty sure I swallowed 26.2 of those bad boys in honor of Run Day! It just didn’t feel like a great run, but I feel fortunate everyday that I can run, and for that I feel content.
I topped off my run with a smoothie, which included: spinach, a banana, festival blend frozen fruit, chia seeds, vanilla protein powder, berry yogurt, water, and ice.
And now for some random running related things…
I could watch this over and over again…
