Beautiful Day

What a difference twenty-four hours can make! After yesterday’s drizzle-fest, today was all golden and sunshiney, with temps in the high 60s/low 70s. I went for a run and it was great.

I did a new twist on my Blossom Street/Memorial Park/home loop today, going up to Post Oak instead and coming back on Woodway. This took me under the 610 loop, where they have finally paved over the sea of mud that was left from all the construction. The result is nice, with paving stones, sidewalk and concrete. This will make some of my routes much easier.

Post Oak was nice too, since that’s where the police department stables are. A lot of horses were hanging out at the fence and I stopped to visit with them.

And on the way home, there was a wisp of a moon in the blue mid-day sky. I've read that a daytime moon used to be called a “children’s moon,” back in the days when most children had actual bedtimes and wouldn’t get to do much moon-gazing. It was pretty cool running under both the sun and the moon!

My one annoyance with today was that Central Market is still out of my favorite pita chips. This makes two weeks, folks, what’s up with that just-in-time delivery model, hm? I hope I’m not suffering from Geek Girl Syndrome where once I find something I like, it gets discontinued! But they had my favorite sandwich available again (mozarella, tomato and basil) after it being unavailable for three weeks, so maybe there's hope after all.

Today's Workout
8.5 mile run

Hm. I think I suffer from geek girl syndrome. Case in point: the no longer existent Texas chicken sandwich at Chili's (Chilies?). Loved it. Gone.

Glad you had a great run.

Mozz, tomato, and basil sounds delicious, but winter tomatoes are so tastless! Guess maybe you don't have that issue where you are.

OMG I now feel totally inadequate ROFL. 8.5 miles run??? I'm toes up for a good nap after walking 5.0km (I think that's 3.5miles) although I can dance all night!!!

Oh, I just love dancing! At my high school reunion a couple years ago, me and one of my friends took over the dance floor early on and were still there when the DJ started packing up! And I could've kept right on going, too! :-)

I wish men loved dancing as much as women do. I have been trying for three years now to find a ballroom/latin dancing partner. At the moment I dance with a 75yo but he puffs a lot...

How about posting a photo of yourself? You can wear a mask if you are concerned about your secret identity.

I am curious about what kind of shape you are in, as you sound like a world class athlete (at least compared to me you certainly are one!).

Keep up the incredible amounts of exercise, I am actually building up the inspiration to go for a run. Perhaps to the market and back?

Actually the main reason I don't post pics is that I'm not photogenic. I have few pictures of myself and don't see a need for them since I always look like a dork in them.

The rabbit looks better. Really.
