The sun is shinning in Seattle right now, but when I woke up this morning, it was gray and rainy. The weather didn’t make for great running weather, but I knew a run along the water with Monica would start my day off on the right foot, so I got up, got dressed, and got going.
Before we headed out, Monica and I shared a banana coconut Pure bar. It reminded me a lot of the banana bread Larabar, but with a hint of coconut flavor. Yum.
Monica and I ran the same route as we did yesterday””along the water on a running path.
At the beginning of our run, it started to sprinkle, so I worried it was going to be a long, wet run, but, thankfully, it stopped and we enjoyed a nice (semi-chilly) 5.5 miles.
Make way for
After our run, we went in search of iced coffee. We tried to stop by Monorail Espresso (a reader recommendation), but, sadly, it was closed. Bummer. So we walked back toward the hotel and hoped we’d stumble upon another coffee joint. Two minutes later, we found Specialty’s.
Specialty’s didn’t sell iced coffee, so I ordered an iced Americano and added milk and cinnamon to it.
It was still a little too bitter for my liking, so I added a packet of cinnamon-flavored agave, which sweetened it right up and added a nice cinnamon-y flavor to it. (The various samples are from Wholesome Sweeteners, who are at the conference.)
Once we were ready for the day, Monica and I headed to breakfast at the conference. Once again, it was a delicious spread of nutritious and delicious foods.
Maybe I was thirsty from my morning run, but I was all about the fresh fruit.
Check out my mountain of fruit!
I also had a piece of crustless tomato-basil quiche, muesli with cashew butter, and tangerine juice. All delicious.
Once I finished my plate, I went back for half of a French toast bagel. Gotta get ”˜em while I can!
Busy day ahead. See ya!
