Don’t let this scenic summer photo from Saturday’s long run on the boardwalk fool you.
The bright sunshine was relentless throughout the run and trying to find a shady spot was impossible to the point where if I ever run this route again in the summer, I am considering one of those umbrella hats and won’t care at all how funny I look.
My shadow makes the run look fun and effortless but that is a mirage.
Enjoying my post-run meal that I packed along with lemony water on a boardwalk bench after over thirteen miles makes life all unicorns again.
My giant magenta water bottle matches my sneakers.
Suddenly I started adding strawberry greek yogurt to the tops of my Red Mango parfaits which makes the yogurt kind of match my pink theme too.
I have always loved dining at Houston’s but don’t do it often enough anymore and really need to because dinner over the weekend was just terrific.
I also need more gigantic baked potatoes in my life this week, with the sprinkle of salt on the skin of the potato to keep my electrolytes balanced and happy.
Sitting on the beach on Sunday for relaxation purposes isn’t nearly as hot and sweaty as running at the beach Saturday morning.
I never come unprepared.
My first Acai bowl from a Long Beach food truck for lunch yesterday.
Acai blended up with I don’t know what like a smoothie topped with blueberries, bananas, granola, oatmeal and a drizzle of honey.
It is against the law to have a beach weekend without ice cream topped with sprinkles.
Just because you graduate elementary school doesn’t mean you are too old to fall asleep in the car.
Hope he is feeling refreshed for the first day of camp which starts today!
I expect him to arrive home today tired and dirty with remnants of cherry ice pop all over his mouth. That’s the sign of a happy camper.
Have a great Monday!
Did you have a hot and sweaty run this weekend?
Ever been to Houston’s (or Hillstone)? Favorite dish to order?
Ever had an Acai Bowl?
Favorite toppings for baked potatoes? I always liked them plain.
