As mentioned yesterday, my wife and I went out to DMK Burger (My wife had a #1 and the Parmesan and Truffle butter fries and a margarita, I had the #5 sweet potato fries, and watermelon type salad, a mojito and a margarita). We couldn't decide where to go for dessert, so we went to Oberweis Ice Cream a block or so north. I had a dulce de leche malt and my wife had a birthday cake ice cream. We check the time... only 7:30. What do people do? I thought stuff stopped at 8pm! So we went to Target and picked up an assortment of items that we had no plans for. I found that they carried running shorts with the liners for like $17. I used them this morning and they worked real nice, especially for the price.
Before bed I took a some pepto and again when I woke up. I figured the alcohol and mix of food would give me issues and I wanted one easy run to finish the week. I woke up 10 minutes earlier today to make sure I gave my stomach enough time for its business.
Out the door at 5:30, cloudy all morning and a bit muggy. I had no goal pace, just an easy run to relax to, modify speed on how my body reacts. Overall, it went well. I wasn't sure how far I was going to run, but by the time I hit my marker for 9, I decided, oh what the heck, lets do 10 again.
Not sure if there was something in the air, but people were extra friendly today, especially for a Saturday morning run. I spotted Kelsey @ Fueling Strong and she sang out a friendly good morning while running with her CARA pace group, I couldn't pick out Bethany @ Accidental Intentions, sorry!
Mother-in-law is with us today again, so we'll be taking her out to breakfast to say thank you for watching our daughter last night. Plus, I love me some big breakfast!
In other news today, the Edgewater Branch Library is reopening today! Good thing too, pretty sure we can drop our daughter off there and she'll be happy as a clam. Day plans are unknown as the weather seems questionable for most of the day!
What are ya'll doing today? Any long runs in the plans?
