There may be a winner in this post, if you make it to the end.
Sooooooo excited that Spring is finally here. Today's run was just the perfect beginning to the Spring season with my little Goober. It was sunny, warm, and the lawn mowers were in full swing. Ahhhhh. During the run I also heard one of my favorite sounds: a nail gun securing down roofing. Yeah, weird I know. It's just that my Dad is a contractor and those type of sounds are ones I grew up with and remind me of home (and my Dad). Another favorite sound is a table saw, with the skillsaw a close third. ;) And don't even get me started on the smell of sawdust and wood (get yer mind outta that gutter! ha!).
Anyway, back to the run...
Pushing Goob in Gizmo (the jogger) was TOUGH with the wind holding me back. Hello drag! The sunshade on Gizmo was like a sail, and it made me work twice as hard just to run on flat pavement. Well, strength training and cardio in one, right? It was cute to see Goob's hair waving in the wind, she EL-OH-VEE-EE's being outside. She just mellows out and takes everything in.
|Me & my Goob...who looks like she's upset that the run is over.|
After the beautiful run I made a smoothie with some green stuff called "Spinach." Yeah, I'm not a foodie...I repeat, NOT a foodie at all, but Travis and I are trying to eat better lately. I've been making a bunch of smoothies, which helps me increase my fruit intake, and today I added the green stuff that makes Popeye's muscles bulge. You know, spinach has been a constant ingredient in my salads (when I do eat them) and especially my Subway Veggie subs, but I never thought I'd drink it through a straw.
|It's colorful, so it must be healthy, right?|
The blender had a tough time with the monster banana that Travis picked up and I also ran out of soy milk and moo milk. When it did finally blend, it looked like this:
|Mmmm, appetizing much?|
You may not be able to see it, but there are spinach particles just chillin' on the top of that smoothie cup. YUMMEH. It looked like poo. I pretended it was chocolate. The verdict: it wasn't that bad.
