Perfect Run

Friday workout: 5 mile run- 554 calories burned

Good morning!!! Yay to Friday and the weekend!

That's the cloudy view I had this morning while I was running. It was great. It started it out a little rough. I barely slept last night because of my stomach ache and this morning I was not feeling any better. I decided to just run 3 miles and go from there. I'm glad that I convinced myself to atleast give it a shot because it was a really nice run. I felt great the whole time and I love running when it's cloudy. My new running shoes felt great. They felt so bouncy and I didn't feel any pain in my left knee. I was starting to feel pain on my left knee the last few runs. I thought it had something to do with my old shoes. I love them but I know I've had them for a year already. I ran a few 5k's and 2 half marathons. It was time for new shoes and I think I made the right decision with the LunarGlide. Today's run was one of those runs when everything feels perfect. I saw kids going to school, mom's saying bye to their kids as they go to school, people on their morning walks and runs. When I reached the half way mark to come back and complete 3 miles I decided to keep going because I felt so good. When I'm having that good of a run I feel like I need to take advantage of it so I did. After my run I made Craig and I breakfast burritos. Scrambled eggs with spinach, green bell pepper, onion and some cheese on a whole wheat tortilla.

I am all out of spinach so I was not able to have a green monster this morning. =( I will have to get some on Sunday so I can have some on Monday for work. We will be gone this weekend to the dunes. We have a lot of this to look forward to.....

Last week we went to the Kelly Clarkson concert. I posted a video last night but I have some pictures from that night. Sorry it's almost a week later but I haven't had time to post them. Before the concert we had dinner at Zoe's Kitchen. It's a healthy restaurant with amazing food.

This was Craig's spinach quesadilla with rice pilaf.

This was my chicken kabob plate with salad, rice pilaf and pita.

Craig and I after the concert.

Brian and I

I love you KELLY!!!!

Sorry such a long post. Atleast it was mostly pictures. =)

I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Sheila from is running her first half marathon this weekend. Good luck to her and anyone else running a race this weekend!! Have fun.

  1. Five mile runs are wonderful! Breakfast burritos are delicious! I haven't had one in waaaaay too long. Tortillas are in definite need soon. I'm so proud of you for going out running this morning when you weren't completely wanting to! I can't wait to read more!

    P.S.- your new shoes are so cute!
