Up and at’em at 6:30 this morning, I got up to hit the huge hotel gym first thing.
(I made those people sign release waivers to be in the blog. Not.)
Look! I got to do a track work out this morning!
The fitness center I use in the winter is this small, decrepit hole of a gym. It’s very close to home and it meets my needs so I don’t really care, but when I get to use these state of the art treadmills it feels like such a treat!
I did a 4 mile interval work out today, alternating sprinting and recovery laps around my “track”. After a cool down, I called it a run.
After a shower, we hit the streets to find a place to have breakfast. Turns out there is a Run for the Cure 5K race going on this morning, we walked past throngs and throngs of people wearing PINK while on way to find a place to eat.
The restaurants on the main drag were littered with runners. We ventured down a less populated street and found this little restaurant called eggsmart.
I went wild and ordered a cup of organic (at a restaurant!!) coffee.
A veggie omelet with wheat toast, a side of potatoes and some fruit.
I thought “there’s no way I’m going to be able to eat of all this” but after a run and a then a walk, I apparently underestimated myself.
We walked back to the hotel after breakfast, just in time for the start of the race! The race started right outside our hotel, we got to watch the bobble of heads move down the pack like a wave.
Today’s blogger meet up is with Angela from Oh She Glows and 8 other OSG readers and bloggers – 10 of us all together. We’re meeting at a restaurant called Fresh, which from the menu alone looks amazing. I totally psyched to one else!
We’re not meeting up until 2:30 so I’m glad to have had a big breakfast to hold me over until then.
We’re off to check out and then wander the streets until this afternoon!
