Early to bed, early to bound out of bed for a run. Considering all the consumption on this trip, I sure have had great morning runs. I’m not sure why! On a normal week at home I can barely find the energy to go in the AM. I wonder if it’s eating so much before going to bed that’s filling up my muscle energy stores 😉
We’re staying right on the Embarcadero, so we had the perfect running route just steps away. We headed left towards the Golden Gate and had the MOST BEAUTIFUL views!!! The sunrise was hitting it with the ideal glow.
The run towards the bridge was great because, although I didn’t realize it at the time, we had the wind on our backs. 8:15 miles easy! The run back was not as easy and a few hills plus the wind slowed us into the 9:00 pace. All in all, 5.33 miles of breakfast running.
There was discussion of Ferry Building breakfast and all kinds of AM ideas, but we realized we had less time and more ground to cover than we though, so we had to settle for Starbucks.
[Holy white balance error!!!]
Grande Misto for her, Pikes Place for him
It’s far from perfect, but they make a good effort 🙂
Amped up with banana, half of the packets of raisins and nuts, Frog Hollow granola and a spoonful of Ashley’s Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter. STILL IN LOVE!
I am craving:
- Lentil soup (random week-long craving!)
- Virginia apples
- Green smoothies
- Bleu cheese over garden greens
- Sunny side up eggs
- Raw spinach
- Tomato paste
- Plain yogurt
- Roasted sweet potatoes
- Green beans
Take me home!
