The Sunshine is Back!!

Finally! No rain today and the sun is even out! The only thing that could possibly make this day any better is a little cooler temp, but hey I will take it! I decided to run after class again today and it was much hotter than yesterday with that sun beating down on me!


I did the same hilly 4 mile route as yesterday but today I ran it in 38:22 averaging out to a 9:38 pace. That’s 19 seconds per mile faster than yesterday! And pair that with a hotter temp and the sun beating on me at noon, and it makes for a hard run! I was exhausted when I finished but so happy I was able to push myself extra hard!


I live in a relatively small, country town outside of Memphis. I have never seen anyone else run out here, EVER. I know Erin runs in our town too but I think we are the only ones! Haha. And the people out here act like they have never seen a person run before! I constantly have people stare at me, like stare as they pass then jerk their head around and stare more! I also get a lot of honks when I run the main road and that irritates me most of all! Don’t honk at me unless you know me. Period. And today I had a dog in a car pass that was barking at me. Geez people/dog… I’m just a runner. Get used to it:)


Today has been a breakfast filled day so far! One, because I love breakfast foods, and two, because my pantry is pretty bare!! Here’s my breakfast:


I had one small container of blueberry Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch, and 1 tsp. of Naturally More PB. It was super good! I need to eat this more often!!



I also went to Starbucks on the was to my Anatomy class and decided to try a tall nonfat Awake Tea Latte(I have been seeing these floating around the blog world and decided that I needed to try it)! The verdict?? Loved it!! I am a huge tea fan anyway so this was awesome, especially since it’s only 120 calories!!


And for lunch, another breakfast dish:


Oatmeal!! Mine contained 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 skim milk, 1/3 cup H2O, 1 small banana, some golden raisins (love these!!), and 1 tbsp. of Naturally More PB. I literally can’t eat my oatmeal without some kind of nut butter! I think it just really makes the dish!!


I don’t plan on having breakfast for dinner though, but I’m still not sure what I’m going to have!!


I need to run out to Sports Authority and pick up another pair of running shorts since I am down to 2 pairs (Sadie likes to eat them for some reason…) so I think I might do that and visit my parents too! Hope ya’ll are having a great weekend so far!!


  1. I can't believe I haven't seen you runnning yet!

  2. Sadie eating your running shorts? Not good! At least it's not shoes!

  3. I hate when people honk at me on busy roads...I feel like they're saying "I'm going to hit you!" instead of "I'm trying to hit on you!" Freaks me out every time.
