We set the alarm for 6:26 this morning to get up and run with Matt before he had to go to work. It was a glorious run along the Charles – a different direction this time. My how much I LOVE running along water. My pace has slowed considerably since the spring when I was running more frequently and hitting around an 8:45-9 minute mile to closer to 9:30-10. My double runs with Matt helped me pick it up a bit and I finally hit 8:45 on mile 4 today. We did 4.5 total. My surgery foot of 4 years ago is giving me some stiffness troubles though, so I thing I’m going to back off this week and save energy for the BlogHer Unofficial 5K on Friday morning!
[Just to clarify for future references, I’ll call Larbs’ Matt Matt A. and my Matt either just Matt or Kanz]
After our run I had a special request for oatmeal. Matt A. is a big fan!
I made a whipped banana base with cinnamon and vanilla and topped it with some crumbled ProBar from home and that amazing honey roasted PB!
Here’s a post I’ve been wanting to write for ages over on Gather. It’s about not fearing food: Enjoy Every Opportunity To Eat!
Our flight leaves at 12:15, so we’re headed to the airport in just a few. We’ve got to pass through Detroit again – blah – so we won’t be home until dinnertime tonight. Matt just packed up a fun lunch for us with leftover sandwich ingredients, so that’ll be fun!
