It has been so fun to spend the weekend with people who also like to get up and run! We had a large group meet in the hotel lobby for our Unofficial Fun Run at 7:30 this morning.
I had a few bites of banana before I went down.
We ran a glorious 10K around the river (others did a 5K) – wish I had photos to share!! Running with other people is SO much more fun!!! We did just under 6 miles and they flew by.
I wore my Real Food shirt to sport the brand 😉
I’ve got a KILLER blister on my pinky toe from walking in heels and then my tennis shoes last night, and major thanks goes to the awesome Caitlin for running to CVS to get me mole skin early this morning!!
After showers, we gathered in the lobby once more for a walk to Finagle A Bagel for brunch. Some of the girls had leftover bake sale items that they distributed. I snagged an Almond Butter Ball and ate it on the spot! HUNGRY!
It was about a 10 minute walk to Finagle – my legs were shaky by the end.
We had quite the crowd, but Finagle was awesome at getting us through quickly.
I settled on Sesame Whole Wheat and brought a banana and a Barney Butter packet as a topping. I still remember the bagel I made the same way in Chicago last year for Quaker and knew I’d be repeating the combo.
I also got a hazelnut iced coffee
It was like a school field trip with all the brown bags and fun kids
We said our goodbyes. It was so sad to see everyone go!! Later tonight it’s just going to be me 🙁
Our crew of about 15 headed over to Trader Joes. These guys are TJ’s VIRGINS!!! They stocked up as best as they could for flights –
We did LOTS and LOTS of walking!! Probably covered another 3-4 miles up and down Newbury all afternoon.
Despite the fact that we’d had breakfast not two hours prior, JP Licks was high on the list 😉
I was not hungry in the slightest, so I just had a shot of soft serve peanut butter!
Next stop: shopping!!! We were excited to go to H&M.
I didn’t buy this dress
But I bought this one for $34
And it was super fun to finally have a post-it note with me so I could finally participate in Operational Beautiful!
Next stop: a 2PM lunch at Scoozi. Since I didn’t have much ice cream, I was pretty hungry.
I ordered a mixed greens salad with goat cheese, walnuts, tomatoes and shrimp
The brought out some bread
And I had a small piece of bread and some some spicy garlic herb butter spread (and a bite of Meghan’s chicken!)
I’d like to take this moment to thank Nasoya for sponsoring our Boston Experience, including this lunch and our other meals and activities on this trip!
Someone broke into the TJ’s PB filled pretzels, which I was eager to try after seeing them on Meghann’s blog so many times.
They. were. good.
I’m about to head back out and head over to Larbs and Matt’s for dinner! Matt and I are going grocery shopping for ingredients and Larbs is coming home from a weekend away in time for dinner to be on the table.
