Today has been a good day so far.
I got up, read all the blogs I subscribe to, and immediately felt inspired. That is perhaps what I love most about reading blogs; they inspire me to get off my butt and get moving!
I grabbed my Nike +iPod, which I hadn’t used since last March when I was in St. John, USVI.
I bought the Nike +iPod back in December 2008, right before I left to study abroad in London. I figured it would be a great tool for me and it might even inspire me to run. I forgot how much I like having it until today. Usually I just bring a watch with me and go to Map My Run when I get home. This made it a lot easier, even though I did check Map My Run anyway to see how accurate it was.
I ended up running just under 5 miles, and stopped at my grandma’s house halfway through to get some water and of course, say hello. We sat and talked for a few minutes and then I headed home.
I refueled with some cold and creamy Greek yogurt, 1/2 sliced banana, and a bottle of water I had chilled overnight in the fridge.
Then I took dog #2 (Mickey) for a walk.
Now dog #1 (Oscar) and I are lounging around downstairs. I should probably go outside and water my garden, but I’m going to put it off since
I’m lazy and don’t do anything there’s a chance it will rain later.
Off to live the dream.
