I'm Back!

Hi! I hope you don't think I abandoned you! The truth is, I accidentally left our computer at home when we were rushing out the door on our way to Montreal on Saturday! I had wanted to tell you all about our great trip as it happened, but instead, I'll have to give you the highlights over the next week or so. Needless to say, we had a great time and I highly recommend that you visit the beautiful city if you have the opportunity.

To recap on my goals from the other week:
I DID complete my first 18 mile run! There was a steady rain in the city both Friday and Saturday last week, so it rained about 95% of my run. Actually, there was a pretty nasty downpour for last mile of the route and the 1/2 mile I had mapped out for a cool down walk after the end point. My feet were sloshing in my shoes!

We packed up fresh fruit (apples, grapes, pears, peaches), carrots and unsalted pretzels for the 6+ hour drive up so we wouldn't be held captive to the less than stellar options at the service stops along the way.

And, as you read in my last post, I did attend the Step Up workshop lead by Aimee Raupp.

We have company arriving in a few hours for the holiday weekend. Again, I will be faced with the challenge of finding healthy options while we eat out for a few more days. I think we are going to make breakfast on Sunday, which will be a nice start to a day when we are going to Citi Field for a Mets game. I've heard they have better food options at the new stadium, but I still think it will be a good idea to have a good amount of fruit before we head over there!

If you're heading out for the long weekend, don't forget to pack some healthy snacks! Have a great and safe weekend and don't forget to check back soon, I have lots to talk about!

We'll be going to the MSUMontana State game. No healthy food there. Plus , stadium security doesn't allow one to take food in. Only bottled water , I think.
