Yesterday afternoon Ben and I headed out on a little date. I bought a Groupon earlier this week for a local pizza place. It included an appetizer, medium pizza and wine or beer for $15. Nice!
The appetizer options were only garlic cheese bread or wings, and I let Ben decide figuring he’d get the wings. I was going to “save room” for pizza.
I went with the white wine and loved it! I am usually pretty finicky about wine and have been known to leave a glass if I don’t like it (like the one on my counter from Thur. night), but I chugged this one. We made sure to find out what kind it was.
Normally “dessert” means fro-yo, but since we saw that Cleopatra movie last weekend and smelled the movie theatre popcorn I have been craving it! Don’t judge, I have the popcorn disease.
I ran 3 miles to meet Skinny Runner at a local park. From there we did 7 miles together. It was HOT.
But she insisted on wearing her Minnie Mouse outfit and that I dress up like Goofy and run 10 paces behind her. Fine.
The things I do to make friends…
Not really, I convinced her this was how Goofy dressed. I think she bought it.
After we parted ways I ran home another 4 for a total of 14.3 and walked to 15. I was supposed to do 16-17 so this was less than ideal – especially because of all the carb loading I did yesterday! I take full responsibility that I didn’t push myself enough and should have started earlier. Just making notes, not excuses.
An entire watermelon. Seriously.
I bought this watermelon yesterday during my lunch and it’s almost gone. I’ve been trying to make my watermelon last and pace myself, but that is out the window this week. It makes me so happy, not sure why.
The big plans for today include finding out where I can buy a bottle of that wine and drowning my sorrows while Ben rolls his eyes and tells me my life is awesome and I shouldn’t feel sorry for myself because I ran 14 miles and now get to sit in the AC and sip gin and juice. Something like that.
