Running Through My Mind

This morning I had another wet run. I did 6 miles and had the most random thoughts today including:

“I wonder if I could make sure I get pregnant to have a baby in the winter so it gives me enough time to get back into a bathing suit so I don’t miss out on summer at the beach…”

“I bet these people going to work think I’m crazy for running in the rain…”

(While running by a cemetery) “If someone I knew was buried here I would run this route every morning so I could tell them, ‘Hi'”

“My dream job would be a magazine editor in Orange County…”

“I wonder if any of my readers really give a F what I think on my runs…”

After my cold, wet run I grabbed a few handfuls of shredded wheat. Then, it was time for a real breakfast. I just threw together a big bowl of cereals, banana, cottage cheese, soy milk and PB. IMG_2690

I have been holding on to these Nature’s Path Toaster Pastries since the company sent them to me a while back. I knew Matt would love them and it’s a special treat since we don’t normally give him things like this for breakfast.IMG_2688

While they are organic and made with real fruit, it doesn’t mean they are “healthy”. Here is the nutrition information – 200 calories for 1 pastry, 1 g of fiber and 3g protein – not a very goodbreakfast if you want to stay full and avoid a sugar crash!IMG_2691IMG_2692

I took a couple of bites. They are good, but not great. It tastes more like a dessert than breakfast. If I am going to “spend” 200 calories on something quick and easy I would rather it be a Larabar or something like that with staying power. IMG_2686

I am off to enjoy the drizzly day with my family. I think we’re going into D.C. to sight see :) Happy Wednesday!

    Ha ha! Yep, I have the most random thoughts and coversations with myself when I run. Usually nothing all that earth shattering….. typically pointless stupid stuff. But I enjoy the “me” time and hanging out with my thoughts. :-)

    Yep organic & natural doesn’t mean healthy!

    I just find out you live close to D.C!! we are quite close , I’m in college park maryland šŸ˜€

    the breakfast looks awesome – a big bowl of everything!! I am not a big fan of toaster pastry….even from Kellogg, they are just way to sweet for my teeth…I hope they can have a adult version which is not that sweet!
    have a wonderful holiday,

    I always clear my head or think about random stuff when I run. Mostly I think about how my future will unfold…deep, I know. ….and yes I give a French Toast what you think when you run.
