5.0 wonderful miles on my favorite running trail on Earth!
Florida Christmas is the best kind of Christmas – even better than a White Christmas!
The Husband didn’t want to run, so he rode a bike alongside of me. It was like I had my own support crew on the run! It was so nice to have someone else carrying my water bottle – except he would stick it out and then bike faster so I had to catch up for a drink!
My favorite running trail goes along the intracoastal waterway and through several mangrove swamps! It’s so pretty, and I always feel so invigorated after a run at my in-laws’ house.
Here are my statistics:
- Distance: 5.0 miles
- Duration: 48:06 minutes
- Mile 1: 9:43
- Mile 2: 9:44
- Mile 3: 9:43
- Mile 4: 9:41
- Mile 5: 9:15
I booked it at the end, imaging the finish line at the Disney Marathon looming over my in-laws’ house! The big race is so close!
Before the run, I had whole wheat toast with cream cheese:
And afterwards, I had a big bowl of banana oatmeal.
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: brown sugar, salted pistachios, and strawberries
The salty + sweet combination of the pistachio and the brown sugar was DIVINE! So delicious.
Time to drive back to Orlando… see you at the airport!
