First Run!!!

Happy Monday! First, I want to say 'hi' to all the new followers! I'm so excited to welcome you!

Today Woody and I head back to New York from Boston. Another trip via the Bolt Bus. We're leaving mid-afternoon so we don't get back too late since I start work tomorrow!! Very excited but very nervous, too.

After the Fitness Room fail of the other day, I decided to run outside this morning. We're in a different hotel now and the fitness room is a vast improvement (although smaller in footprint) but I wanted to get outside and see Boston. It was really humid and started drizzling towards the end (had rained over night with lots of puddles) but it was great! This was my first outside, post injury run!

Woody slept while I ran, but took this picture of me when I returned to document the great event!
Now we're off to meet up with the family for breakfast before exploring North Boston a bit before we head home. I had the hardest time finding a breakfast place - is it just me or are there hardly any diners and breakfast spots in this city? I think we're in a bad location for breakfast spots and I'm just not looking in the right places (menu pages, grub street)?

Don't forget to enter the giveaway that ends tonight!

How was your weekend?

Boston is a great town to run in! I love to run along the Charles down by the hospital and out towards Fenway...

Hooray for being able to hit the pavement once again! Injuries are so frustrating so here's to some post-injury miles. Yeah!

I would love to visit Boston sometime! Glad you had a nice time. I hope you found a good breakfast place! I know I always miss my home breakfasts when I'm on vacation....sometimes I bring it with me!
