Worth Waking Up For

That’s the view from my 3-mile jaunt this morning along the East River. Not too shabby, huh?

The run was pretty, but it wasn’t easy. I am so sore from yesterday’s gym session! I’m not complaining—it’s a good hurt and it means I worked hard—but my legs weren’t up for a speedy run today.

So I took it nice and slow, enjoying the sights and the unseasonably warm weather. It was 50 degrees when I finished my run!

Now it’s off to tackle the day. Coming up in the next few hours:

  • Work until 5
  • A trip to Whole Foods to pick up some trail mix supplies
  • BodyArt with Bethany at Crunch (Can’t wait to stretch out my sore muscles and do some deep breathing)
  • Taking out all the trash and recycling that’s taking over the apartment
  • Eating yummy pesto pasta leftovers for dinner
  • New “Glee” at 8:00! They’re going to Sectionals! Woo!

Have a great day!

    1. Do you live on the Upper East Side? I just moved up here a month ago and I am already craving new running routes. Somehow I’m managing to get bored alternating between Central Park and the East River Promenade. Let me know if you have other routes you’d recommend!
