After I made the cookies of course We had to sample a few right away they were amazing. I was looking forward to having a handful as my post run snack with a tall glass of organic whole milk!!
Next I started to get ready for my run by eating some overnight oats and drinking a tall glass of water. I usually try and eat and drink something about a hour before my run.
I had a nice run even with wet feet. After awhile I got used to splish splashing through snow melting puddles. My goal was 14 miles today and I damn near made it. I logged 13.5 miles on my watch. I ran into some stomach issues around mile 11. I'm going to go ahead and blame Nonna's Toated Poundcake for the stomach issues. Honestly it was probably my entire meal last night at Maggianano's. I was out late last night for a friends birthday celebration and ate way more than I normally would and was up way later then I normally am. Lesson learned! I'm now showered and snuggled on the couch next to the most adorable 23 month old baby girl. I hope you had a great day today too!
