Wine at the Line

What are you doing today? Heading to closing day of a Farmer's Market (that season went by too fast, for sure!)? Relaxing at home? Planning to enjoy a trip to a museum for no admission thanks to the Smithsonian Free Museum Day?

I plan to get a good breakfast in on Saturday morning. Something really well balanced. Eggs for protein. Wheat toast for carbs. Melon and strawberries and banana for fruit. Yogurt for dairy.

Might go to the Farmer's Market. If we can swing it in the budget, I'd like to stock up on some beef from Royer Farm Fresh Beef and I know Jeff would like some more corn salsa from the place where I'd like to stock up on some more pickled baby beets for me and Teagan.

I need to get some housework done. Dishes, laundry, must vaccuum.

A light lunch around noon would be good for me. Nothing heavy. Maybe some of the chicken and veggie and quinoa soup I made earlier in the week. Yes, that sounds perfect!

Lots of water throughout the day, of course.

Because I'm doing my 2nd 5K on Saturday at 4:00!

Christy and I will be driving down south of home- about an hour away. There is a local winery- Mallow Run- that is having a running event and after party. There is a 5 mile run and a 5K run/walk. Afterwards- wine, pizza, music.

Now, I'm not in any condition to run the entire 5K. I'm not doubting myself or being nervous- just realistic. I haven't been able to run more than a 3 minute interval since changing my running style. So I'll do my best at my very slow pace and I will walk when I need to and run as much as I can.

Hopefully, this boosts my motivation for the next event on my radar...

Also, I'm still going going going on Ashli's challenge to run 500 miles in 1 year. I added a widget over on the side that will show you what mileage I did on my last run or walk. If you are on DailyMile and you are going to join us on the challenge, there is a group started up to help track all of our miles. Let me know if you want to join- friend request me on dailymile and then I can invite you to the challenge group.

Send me fleet feet vibes this evening! 4:00 PM EST

Go Liz and my IMLM buds! I wish I could be running this one with you -- it's going to be a beautiful day, and what could be better than finishing a run with friends, music, wine, and pizza?! I can't wait to hear all about it :) While I'm cheering on my ds' marching band, I'll be wishing I could be in two great places at once. :)

Have fun! I saw the add for this race at the Geist 5k. Looked like a lot of fun. Since I just started on Daily Mile, I think you have to accept my friend request there before I can join your challenge ??

anyhoo...I'll send some fresh leg vibes around 4pm today!

Yeah!!!! Races are fun even if you're not at the front of the pack (which I never am!) Have a great time!

Also, can you invite me to the challenge group on DM? I'm following Ashli's blog.

I admire you for even trying! I will walk sixty miles, but I refuse to run just one.

You go!
