Average pace- 9:22
Whew! My legs were tired this morning! The first half of the mile I was really doubting myself...how in the world did I run a marathon when half a mile is killing me? But after the halfway mark I started feeling a little less tired and picked up the speed. It's rained so hard the past two evenings so I got to see and hear the water rushing through the ditches. Kinda sounded like I was running next to a river...nice!
Speaking of rain...our backyard has had it's own river running through it during all that rain! Luckily, it drys up pretty quick. But that's how we know we are getting a lot of rain!
Yesterday I got to eat lunch with some of my Sole2Soul Sisters! We met at a cute little place called "Spot of Tea" in downtown. I had been here once before but it was about 9 years ago! I remembered it being good but couldn't remember much else. The place has a lot of history...really cool to see. We sat in their "Carriageway Dining Area." They named it this because it used to be a stable for carriages in the 1800's. On the lunch menu they offer sandwiches, soups, and salads. I got the soup and salad combo...a regular garden salad which had nice leafy greens (no iceberg lettuce), tomatoes, croutons, mushrooms, and onions (which I took off). The soup I got was the seafood bisque, which apparently they are known for. You have to pay extra for it but it was so worth it! It was sooo good! I wanted to lick my bowl lol! Next time I will probably just order that as my entree! It was great having a relaxing meal with friends! Hopefully we can do it again soon!
