This morning I woke up for a nice 3 mile run. The weather was perfect here in Houston this morning (it was actually cool!) so I headed over to Memorial Park. I used my Garmin and got a great run in on the 3 mile trail (every time I run it the Garmin is off .10 of a mile or so because of the trees). I love my Garmin Forerunner 205, I wish I could provide everyone with one because it's great. I had a relaxing run but it's nice to see where I was faster and to know how much I have run and how much is left on long runs. I bought it from a neighbor and have been obsessed with it ever since!
I do get annoyed sometimes because it doesn't get service under all the overpasses that I run under nor does it get service when I am deep in the trees but overall it's my favorite running buddy (wait no second to Anthony).
I came home in a great mood- morning running does that to me! After showering and putting on some comfy clothes I snacked on my favorite, fresh cut-up fruit! I forget how great I feel when I have a lot of fruit already cut up and ready for snacking.
I was reading this article about a USA Marathon Runner who only eats a diet of fruit. I might not be that extreme but when I lived in Austin I certainly kept most of my diet consisting of fresh fruit. I can tell you that when I was eating that way I was never sick, full of energy, and happy. So why is the processed food that the boys and I have here at our house so tempting to me?
