Birthday morning started out rather early today since I decided to do my sleeping in yesterday! Woke up at 7 & got ready for my run, then made a quick trip to Jasper to cheer on a few individuals I knew who were running in the Heartland Half Marathon before enjoying my own run in the morning drizzle.
It was a FUN run on some great back-roads…took my usual path that I enjoy most. I was drenched by the end of the hilly six miles, but felt GREAT! I was happy that I had started out my birthday with a rainy AM run. I may be turning 24 & getting older, but I still got plenty of runs left in me
I used the iMapMyRUN app & it said I trucked-along for 57 minutes & burned a total of ~635 calories! Whoop! That is a good thing, since I will likely be enjoying a yummy birthday dessert this evening.
After my run, I whipped up a “recovery” Breakfast ~
Naner + 1/2 English Muffin with Naturally More Crunchy PB & SF Jelly
Hit the Spot.
Lunch today was with a good friend of mine whom I have not seen in FOREVER! She was home for the extended weekend from St. Louis. We had arranged to play a round of golf together, but since the weather did not allow, we decided to enjoy some SUBWAY together instead.
Munched on my normal: 6” Turkey, No Cheese, on Honey Oat. With LOTS of “wedgies” & FF Honey Mustard sauce. Delish.
This evening the family is coming over for a Labor Day/Birthday dinner at our house. I am sure it will be an enjoyable time with plenty of good eats & a few tasty treats involved. I will snap a picture of my plate & fill you in on the meal (and dessert) in my Labor Day post.
Until then, ENJOY your extended Labor Day weekend & any FUN festivities that you may part-take in during the rainy few days!
And if you are in celebration mode with family & friends (like I am going to be here shortly), just remember one simple word: MODERATION, Friends…MODERATION!
