When I went to Ben’s annual college reunions a few weekends back I made the mistake of bringing “cute” shoes instead of comfy ones. I didn’t realize there was so much walking involved and ended up getting blisters on my toes
I was dying to get my shoes off, but could not find a place to buy some cheap flip-flops. Finally on the way to dinner we walked by the Princeton Running Store and even though it was after closing time the nice store employees let me come in and buy some flippers.
I only had a minute, so I grabbed the first pair in my size. As we were paying for them the employee pointed out that these are made from a real yoga mat. When I put them on (right then and there) I told him I did feel more Zen immediately. “Ommm…”
The sandals are by Sanuk. And I did not get them for free nor am I being compensated for unabashedly raving about their shoes. This is all me.
This morning was Day Two of training = 4 hilly miles. I (being from pancake flat areas of SoCal) think everywhere in my city is hilly. I just did my same 4 mile route that I did yesterday.
Then, I couldn’t decide between a smoothie or a yogurt bowl for breakfast. I went yogurt. My big issue with yogurt bowls is, I prefer cereal in milk not yogurt. So I always end up eating my yogurt bowl and then adding cereal and milk to get my fix. This is not a good plan.
In the mix: greek yogurt, chia seeds, Vitatop, banana, PB, huge raisins, Kashi H2H. (Then, I added cereal and soymilk. I don’t know why, but I almost always do this.)
