This morning my brother Eric and I woke up bright and early (well, I woke up bright and early, and then waited an hour for him to get up) and went for a run!
Look who joined me for my usual post-run pic in front of the mirror!
I love that Eric is down for joining me on my runs. I don’t usually have a running buddy, and it is awesome. We completed just over 4.5k, and with Eric by my side, the time flew by!
It was extremely hot though, and I am not used to running in the heat. If I am running in the morning I am usually out there by 5:45am, and if I am running in the evening I don’t go until after 8pm. We went around 9am, which is not quite the middle of the day, but it was HOT, and we were both schweaty beasts. I don’t typically bring any water with me unless I’m planning on running more than 5k, but today I really felt like I needed it.
Definitely started the day off on the right foot though.
Afterwards we were hungry for some breakfast. I never eat before a run because it just makes me feel gross and crampy, so I make myself hold off, even if I’m hungry when I wake up.
Luckily we had Ando around to make us some of his magical poached eggs.
I enjoyed mine on a whole wheat English muffin with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper, and cheese. I love eggs for weekend breakfasts!
On today’s agenda is hitting up our local farmer’s market to see what sort of fresh produce I can score, and hopefully hanging out on our patio. It is beauty out there!
Have a good one!
Question of the Mornin’
- Do you prefer to run alone, or with a buddy?
