First of all…..someone really smart with the name that rhymes with Ranae and starts with a J forgot to charge her computer last night = no entertainment while running on her treadmill this morning. I realized after a few minutes that I could in fact watch Felicity on my phone as I ran and so I squinted to see the itty bitty screen and watched an episode. All was right in my little world again once I had something to entertain me.
(This isn’t actually the picture from this morning, this is a reenactment of running and watching my phone)
Second weirdness of the morning: I FORGOT my MEAL BAG (it isn’t called a lunch bag when you have four meals in there) at home…….
Luckily I had an emergency pack of oatmeal in my desk. I grabbed a banana and chocolate milk from the cafeteria and got to work making my breakfast.
I took two bites and remembered I don’t like oatmeal…..In the year of 2010 I overdosed on it and have never been the same since.
Plan b: random cereal from my drawer with chocolate milk and the bananas I rescued from the bowl of oatmeal. *****Do not try eating a low sugar cereal after months of eating sugary cereals…….it tasted off but that may have also been because it is 3 years old.
-Intermission for an awesomeness of the day……
Two students brought me brownies with milky way and reese’s chunks baked into them to wish me luck in New York! So much for trying to eat somewhat decent the week before the marathon. These actually are the best brownies I have ever eaten in my life.
Final weirdness of my day. THE POWER WENT OUT. We were in the computer lab working on a project when the lights went out and there were no windows….kind of freaky! We didn’t have power for a few hours….it was strange and we ate lunch at 10:30 a.m. so that the cafeteria food wouldn’t go cold…. I think I could get used to eating lunch that early.
What is something WEIRD that has happened to you today?
Have you ever run on the treadmill for an extended amount of time without music/tv/entertainment?
-I do not recommend it…after .5 miles my head was spinning.
Are you an oatmeal fan? How often do you eat it?
How long was the longest that you have been without power?
