A long run and a short walk

My long run this morning was bliss.  Ok, not all of it.  The first 3 miles were uphill and slow going, but it was overcast and in the 70s which was such a welcome relief from the triple digits this past week that I didn’t’ mind.  Once at the top of the Thompson Creek trail, it was all downhill.  Beautiful trees, the path full of smiling exercisers enjoying cooler air during the early morning; you could feel the love!  The 7 miles zoomed by and though I tried to stay present in the moment, I knew it would all be over too soon. 

Back at home, I took advantage of the cooler weather to…
A) Wear long pajama pants
B) Clean the house
C) Make a new batch of gluten free bran flakes
D) All of the Above

Correct, my friends, the answer is D!  After a light lunch Greg and I picked up my mom and drove to Oak Glen to buy apples and cider and to take a short walk in the Wilderness Conservancy Area.  It is so beautiful up there!  Back home for dinner, here is the food breakdown for the day.
