Last night my wife, daughter, and I went to Nookies in Edgewater. Only posting this as a notification that they trimmed down their menu a bit. Notably, the two items we were going to order (Monte Cristo and a Reuben). Their specials list was also smaller. Food was still good though. Their blueberry pancakes cured the cantankerous mood our daughter was in all day. (Her dinner- black bean soup, bread, blue berry pancake, and sweet potato fries... yum! )
Turn time to 4:40am.
Turn on "Get by" by Talib Kweli. That was the motto for this morning's recovery run.
Was especially hard to get out of bed today. Still soaking in how HBO portrayed the Red Wedding last night in a Game of Thrones. Brutal and awesome. I can't wait to taste the tears of the non book readers at work, along with the internet reaction.
Toss on warmer cloths, slow run planned for today so won't be generating as much heat. Get outside, feels okay. Sunrise was supreme, but I wasn't taking gloves off today for a photo, sorry! I gave the Sun a plea as it broke into the sky. Help us Obi Sun Kanobi, you're our only hope. We have 25 points to score to reach the predicted high... Rigggght.
The random cool front knocked a lot of Monday runners off that had started over the last few weeks. DEMERITS FOR ALL OF YOU!..jk.. not really. maybe.
I saw some regulars: thumbs up older guy, my nemesis doing sprints on a soccer field, older Asian lady with the quick draw wave(who wore shorts and made me feel like a sissy for wear tights! lol), and a few others I haven't described before. Today's shout out goes to a young lady (I think young, honestly she could be 25-35, I can't tell) who has been out there throughout the winter. It took her awhile to start warming up to the wave, but she joined the friendly club a few months ago. There is nothing that really pops out about her like the others, just her consistency which is pretty gnarly. Kudos to you lady!
My run felt pretty lethargic. My legs were fatigued, but at least that made sure I stayed slow.
Bets on how warm it will actually get by the lake today?
And your inspiration for the day:
