1. Running with friends. After Sunday’s 12-miler, I couldn’t wait to run with my buddies again. Even though the first WeROKC — Women Runners of King County — group run is this coming Sunday (e-mail me if you want to join!), I just couldn’t wait! So, I texted Mel to see if she wanted to meet me for a lunch run Wednesday. She did!
|Me and Mel (post-run for me, mid-run for her)
looking fab in our pink jackets!
We both showed up in pink and we didn’t even plan our outfits! I got in almost a half mile before we met and then we hit the local trail for another three. We were running at a 9:48 average pace (which is on the quick side for me), but it didn’t feel like it. We were able to chat the whole time! Big difference from our last lunch run (which was in 2009 here – holy cow – didn’t realize it was that long ago), when I could barely breathe, let alone talk!
2. Wasa Light Rye Crispbread. Hello, delicious crunchy, light snack. Super yummy slathered in Laughing Cow light swiss cheese (30 calories per wedge). Surprisingly, a plain crispbread is a nice accompaniment to a cup of coffee, too! Sixty calories for two big slices? Yes, please!
3. Giving stuff away. Sure, I love winning stuff, but giving it away is really fun, too! (Have you entered the NUUN giveaway yet? It ends Sunday.)
