Bright and early this morning, Mal and I met our TNT team for a run around South Boston. (It was Mal’s first run since the marathon!) None of us registered for a spring event with Team In Training; we just wanted to keep the team alive, so we’re informally training for the Run to Remember Half Marathon in May.
Bill, the owner of the South Boston Running Emporium, kindly let us use his store for our meeting place once again. The store was hopping today! Now that the weather is getting warmer, a lot of different running groups meet there too.
Since Mal and I running a 5K tomorrow, we saved our legs and did a quick 3-mile loop around Southie. I kept up with Mal for the first 1.5 miles running an insane 7:27 pace, but I lost steam on one of the steep hills. Even still, it was fun to run fast!
As soon as I walked inside, I noticed a bunch of new flavors on the blackboard, including Blondie iced coffee.
Oh my goodness, it tasted just like a Blondie!!! I slugged it down in the car before we even arrived home. Now, I want another one.
At home, I refueled with an egg white patty covered in buffalo sauce on a piece of whole wheat toast with melted sharp cheddar. Perfect. It hit the spot.
I’m spending the rest of the afternoon with my mom and sister. We’re getting facials and then cooking an Irish dinner together.
