Tonight's run wasn't the best of runs at all. I didn't get out of the door until just before 5 pm. Which means I was starving! I did eat a lemon larabar at 4:30 hoping it would help me out for the run but I don't think it did. It was hot. I was thirsty. I drank water all day long prepping for tonight's run - as a matter of fact I filled my Nalgene bottle 5 times today - that would be 120 ounces of water. For some reason my beloved Brooks Pure Connects decided to piss me off and give me blisters and my feet just ached the entire time. I did have my phone and I really thought about calling Ward several times to just come and get me but I couldn't bring myself to call. I wasn't in any pain, I was just not having a good run. I needed to get over this and just power through it. And that I did. Overall time 1:10 for 8.10 miles. And did I mention, I swallowed my first bug. Gross! I know there will be many more. The first one always throws me for a loop. Not my best time, not my worst time, so overall just a blah kind of run. We all have them. Now I need to move on.
The first thing I did when I got home was mix up a coconut water and Neocell Collagen Belgium Chocolate protein drink. Oh yum!
|add in belgium chocolate collage protein powder, shake|
and you get this delightful treat

#20 - Before and After
|before my run|
(note, it's wasn't really 3:43...I am too lazy and haven't changed this clock yet)
|after my run....only dropped 5 degrees...|
Another set of befores & afters just for fun....
My the little strap piece broke on my garmin - so I bought the replacement band.
I don't really like how the band is black/gray and my watch is green, but it is far more comforable and fits way better. I'll take it and just have to get over the looks.

My lunch for the week. Quinoa Caprese salad. I spotted this simple recipe on pinterest and it is filling and delicious.
Photo Of The Day #22 - Kitchen Sink
Here is my lovely kitchen sink. I do like the old soapstone sinks we have here. Ward customized the sink area to make these two work. I love the wide shallow one and then the deeper one. These sinks completely fit in well with our old farmhouse.
