The Long Run


So I managed to convince myself last night that the storm and my tiredness were excellent reasons not to go out and run and instead eat a lot of food and watch tv the whole night.  Then I got out the book I’m currently reading and read a bit…..


Has anyone read this?? Matt Long is a completely amazing human being and makes me want to try harder at everything.  My reasons suddenly seemed like the most ridiculous and pathetic excuses!  So I had to run today even though the storm raged on.  It was crazy windy and rainy the entire day, still is.  Once I got out there, and caught my hat from flying off my head a few times, it felt great and exhilarating and I ran 6 miles.  And of course I couldn’t leave home without my iPod so it needed a little help:

After I braved the elements I had quite a craving for The Counter.  I have a serious love of veggie burgers and I think The Counter’s version is my favorite.  Plus you get to fill out a little check list with the exact ingredients you want which is really fun for those who are controlling about their food like me.  I have been meaning to try in on a bed of lettuce instead of in a bun so I did it today, and while it was good, I have officially decided I’m a bun girl.  But that didn’t stop me from mixing it up like crazy! Here’s the before and after 🙂

That didn’t quite do it for me (I’m telling you I needed the bun) so I made a smoothie because that’s my current obsession.  This one had spinach, strawberries, mango, banana, almonds, and almond milk and was De-Lish!

Anyone else brave the storm?

  1. I didn’t do my long run today. It hasn’t stopped raining, I feel guilty, but I’ve been sneezing the past 2 days. Last thing I want is to catch a nasty cold, and instead of missing a day missing a week because I’m sick.
    It’s so funny the way you wrapped your iPod, I use kitchen plastic film.
    I can’t afford to get my favorite iPod ruined, the new nano sucks.
