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.
Breakfast: GF bran flakes with berries and milk
Lunch: Hummus, hardboiled eggs, rice crackers, smoked salmon and cheese
Dessert: Caramel apple
