Cold and Balls

Helllloooooo! I was running late to boot camp this morning and forgot my water bottle and fuel to run. I planned on doing my long run today so I would be recovered by Sunday. Fail.

But, don’t focus on my failure, focus on me making a fool of myself…IMG_3167 (800x600) (800x600)

When I went home to grab my stuff it was still so cold outside I decided to stall for a bit (or maybe I frozen in place). I ate a cinnamon roll with cranberry orange spread and hot coffee while waiting Smile

These are from TJ’s, but Zen bakery makes the same kind and is available WF and other health food stores.

Then, I finally set out for a 6 miler. I’m going to pack my stuff tonight so I can drive straight to my long run location tomorrow after camp!

When I got back I wanted EGGS! I made 2 eggs with 2 pieces of toast. Odd that there’s only one in this picture…

    I’m hoping those rolls are a new TJ’s product and they just haven’t made it to the east coast yet cause I’m totes jealous and want to sink my teeth in one!

    All sorts of balls, and a twofer, what a great idea. We always take a couple tags off the giving tree at our gym and last year we picked all sorts of balls. This year, I didn’t see any sporting equipment, hopefully someone else got those! Barbie is a lot harder to shop for, for me anyway…I like to pick one with an obvious profession :)
