Talk about a view for my Tuesday morning run. I had to get out bright and early to get my run in and the temps were perfect (I am hoping it stays this way for the NYCM next weekend).
A great way to end my short trip to the city.
The fastest shower and packing job occurred and next thing I knew it I was eating a bacon/cheese/egg breakfast bagel while waiting for my airplane. I am actually disappointed with myself that I only had 2 bagels in the 41 hours that I was there.
My first flight was to Houston and I grabbed a chicken caesar salad before getting on my next flight home. Finished off my Dylan’s Candy bag (judging by the fact that they charge $40 a lb or something like that… she must make bank) and my book with a few more snacks.
Me and Brooker are back together again. It feels so right.
I like to call this my ‘I had 5 minutes to pack and get ready before my car came to pick me up to take me to the airport and then I was traveling for 8 hours’ hair. I will do a tutorial for this style in the next post and then I will put it on Pinterest.
After lots of eating out the last few days it felt really good to have a healthy meal of broccoli, cauliflower and chicken. Brooke continues to be too good to be true… she downs her broccoli first and then she always wants more.
And she is already trying to borrow my clothes at the ripe old age of 14 months.
I think she must have learned this from her cousins while I was away. This should be fun.
And random running fun fact of the day (from the nutritionist for the elite runners at Brooks):
We talked a lot about nutrition during races and he showed this little trick of how to drink from the cups at the aid stations (ps he recommended for me to drink gatorade at ALL of the aid stations during a marathon… if I wanted to do water and gatorade that is great but to make sure to get gatorade at each station).
Close off the top 2/3rds of the cup with your hand and drink from the little opening that it forms… now I won’t finish a race covered in gatorade like I normally do.
Second fun fact: Mindy sent me the link to 25 Things Non-Runners Don’t Get About Runners.
Great deal: You can get $20 off the Aspaeris Capris by using the code HRGCAPRI. Offer ends on 10/31/13.
Favorite type of bagel?
-Cinnamon sugar (obviously).

I haven’t heard about YOUR workouts lately… what do you have scheduled for today?
