Today I went for a late morning run in Orange County. I’ve heard great things about the Newport Back Bay Loop and have only run to the loop, but not all the way around it.
Bobbi lives an hour and a half inland, but was heading to the OC for some fun today. We decided to meet up and try the Back Bay Loop in Newport for a run and some catch up time!
Today was gorgeous! We didn’t start running until about 10am and I was afraid it was going to be too hot. Luckily a strong ocean breeze kept us from overheating
7 miles done and done!
After the run we headed to the obvious choice for some lunch – Whole Foods! The Whole Foods in the Tustin Marketplace really is the best one around.
On a bed of spinach I think there was… mushroom lasagna, pastas salad, pineapple fried rice, sweet and sour tofu, a piece of butternut squash enchilada and more. Everything was amazing except the salmon salad, could have done with out that.
I got 2 Zevia sodas because I drink more than Charlie Sheen at an open bar.
It’s already “sit outside” weather in Southern California!
We sat and chatted for a long time after digging into our food too. That means there was room for “dessert”. Today’s lunch dessert was a detox juice. Okay, so it’s not a gooey chocolate chip cookie – but it is still a treat to me!
Now I should really get in the shower since my fellow Whole Foods shoppers were steering their organic produce packed carts far away from me as I was walking around the store. I thought I’d fit in the with all the hairy legged hippies, but apparently I stink too much even for them! Sorry.
The run, the lunch and the girl talk was so much fun today! I love starting the week on a good note like this
