At work today we had a lunch and learn – I tried to be good and took just half a roast beef sandwich and then loaded my plate with fruit , with just a scoop of potato salad.  But at the very end was a tray of desserts….yes, my weakness.  I took a black and white cookie and a chocolate rugelach…..then I took another rugelach and a coconut macaroon.  I knew I had to run after work.  So I mapped out a run that would be close to 4 miles.

Fast forward to evening and home.   Ava helps me fill out her Reading Across Broward reading log – I thought she only read enough books to receive a participation award – but we fill out the entire sheet and she said she could have filled out another sheet.  I LOVE that she enjoys reading….just like her mom!  I see I have gotten my free sample of Mio – Blueberry Lemonade.  Publix had a display last night with a $1.00 off coupon – I picked up the Mandarin Orange.  Since I have given up drinking soda, I drink a lot more water – but HATE plain water, so Mio is perfect.  As soon as I got home from Publix I opened the Mandarin Orange and added a squirt to my water bottle that I had been walking around with for hours – I finished it immediately.  I hope the Blueberry Lemonade is good.  James made sausage and peppers – oh no – I know it’s going to be delicious, but I have not been eating very healthy, so I go change into my running clothes.  Ava sees me changing, next thing I know, she too has on her running clothes.  Quick change of plans – my 4 miles now become 2 miles, which I know she won’t be able to do, but she wants to join me, so she takes her electric scooter.

This worked better than I thought it would!  She goes slow, and I keep pace with her and I took shorter walk breaks than I normally do.  We cross paths with another mother with her daughter on a scooter and her daughter was yelling encouraging words to her – “Faster, come on you can do it!”  Ava and I had a good chuckle.  My run was 2.36 miles in 29:15 minutes – which included my few minutes of warmup and cool down.

I was right about dinner – it was delicious!!!
