To start my morning off right I made sure to have some breakfast. I started it last night with some prep and a little assistance from my hubby. He ate the rest of a jar of PB and gave the jar to me for some overnight oats. In addition to the oats and soy milk, I added some chopped strawberries and dark chocolate covered sunflower seeds when I took it out of the fridge this morning.

After work, I made the 2 hr drive home and went for a run. I don't know if it was the substantially cooler weather or the fact that it was a short run, but I felt like I had super speedy legs today. Obviously, no run I do is super speedy but I used to run a 10 min mile for 3-4 miles and tonight I was cranking out a 10.31 min/mi pace. That makes me feel pretty good. The best part was....no walking!! Absolutely no walking tonight! It makes me so happy that I just kept chugging along the whole time around the pond and was able to do it at a decent pace. Ever have that perfect run and you end it and you feel like your legs were moving like Usain Bolt's? Yeah, that was me today.
