Seriously clouds!??!? How can you possibly cover Anchorage for this long? The sun wants to show his beautiful face too!! I really did have high hopes when I saw the sun shining this morning but 45 minutes later it is gone again. 🙁
On a higher note, I got started this morning with a standard pre-long run breakfast. When something works, why change it?
Special K Fruit and Yogurt Cereal with low-fat organic milk.
Ice cold milk is the best! I loved having milk at my Grandma and Grandpa’s because their milk was always extremely cold!
Half of a multigrain bagel. I spread half of the bagel with almond butter and the other half with peanut butter because I am indecisive like that.
I do enjoy my solo runs, but I also enjoy running with others sometimes too. This morning Craig and Lindsey biked while I ran 12 miles. It was a good run. I felt good and the weather cooperated–as in no rain.
After 1 hour, I consumed 2/3 of this Chocolate Outrage GU Gel. I liked the chocolate flavor, but I prefer the Mint Chocolate or Espresso. 🙂
I get so excited when I find money on my runs or out walking. I haven’t been finding as much this summer sadly. Last summer I found almost $1.00 in change one time though! 🙂 It is the little things in life that make me happy!!
12 miles in 1:40
When I got back, I quickly refueled with a Strawberry Banana Protein Smoothie and Zuchinni Muffin.
