The HILLS! Oh the hills. We went running again today – 6.2 miles to downtown and back in one giant loop. It was a great run (I was thankful for the clouds during this time!), but I can’t believe how much more tired I am after 6 miles here. Not sure I’ll be able to do half marathons again!
The relief of walking back in the door:
The reminder to be happy about things!
And the reminder that I need to S T R E T C H more!
Yoga Tune Up to the rescue. These guys are in my Open Sky store and are lifesavers both in the car and for my feet. I used to use tennis balls, but I use them so much they got soft! These balls do not get soft. Perfect for a foot massage. I’ve been feeling a little twinging on the bottom of my foot – probably related to the hills – so I’m going to take it easy and go run somewhere flat for a while – NYC + Chicago!
Another 2PM lunch. Getting up in the 8 O’clock hour and finishing breakfast around 9 means I’m not hungry till afternoon!
Leftover Bean + Chard Stoup with almonds on top
And these little nuggets!! A sample sent to preview from OpenSky. Look for them as a bonus package soon!
I don’t know if it was post-run salt depletion, but these were pretty much the best food I’ve ever eaten.
With half a peach (shared with Matt)
A few tortilla crumbles made their way into my soup was well when Matt brought the bag out.

Despite taking my Camelbak on my run, I’m sooooo thirsty right now. Going to go chug.
