I FINALLY was able to get myself out of bed to get out for a morning run this week. Getting back into that routine has been very rough, but I’m trying my best. 6 miles out to Revere Beach and back. The first three miles were completely brutal, but on my way back things felt a little better even though I was running directly into the wind.
P.S. I learned about FitSnap so you’ll be seeing a lot pics like this now.
Also, I know everyone in Boston is a fan of this Indian Summer we’re having, but I personally think it needs to knock it off and get back to autumn. My run was SO humid. I’m ready for long-sleeve running weather, dang it.
Speaking of which, HAVE YOU GUYS SEEN THE NEW BALANCE BEACON COLLECTION? It’s running gear that literally glows in the dark. It’s not just brightly colored, and it’s not just reflective, IT GLOWS IN THE DARK. This gear has moved to the top of my Christmas list. Such a genius idea. I’m really into it.
Also, on a glow-in-the-dark related note, Chinatown is actually looking kind of pretty these days with their lanterns up.
But not as pretty as these beauties. Sushi is hands-down my favorite food. And this place in Chinatown is so cheap, so good, and most importantly, BYOB—which makes it one of my favorite places to eat. Featured here we have: a salmon avocado roll, a spicy tuna roll, and their spicy Red Sox specialty roll. Three of us ate, we got 9 rolls and an order of Edamame, and it was only $68.00. Total steal.
And then last night, I went to another amazing restaurant in Boston and got this for dessert. A chocolate chip skillet cookie. It was even more amazing than it looks.
Thank goodness I’m running again, because I’ve been eating a lot of amazing foods lately. Today though I’m taking the day off and doing BodyPump instead. Then tomorrow S and I are talking about driving out somewhere and running, because we’re both a little sick of our normal route. Plus, it’s supposed to cool off a lot this weekend, thank goodness. Any exciting weekend plans out there?
