TODAY IS THE BIG DAY! Who are you rooting for?
It’s probably no surprise that I’m rooting for… ENGLAND (the Husband is British). Yes, I’m American, but I much more invested in the England team! I love those boys!
How can you resist this face?
That’s Wayne Rooney, England’s striker. Hubba hubba!
Fun fact: the Husband and I were in England for the 2006 World Cup. England is OBSESSED with the World Cup. It’s like the Superbowl times one million. No – one BILLION!
We watched the games outside. It was EPIC.
Check out this CROWD!
To make sure we get good seats for today’s game, we’re going to the bar a full FOUR HOURS before the game! I hope we can actually SIT DOWN! The game isn’t until 2:30 PM EST.
Since my afternoon is full of bar food and beer, I went for a long run this morning. It was SUPER hot out – the weatherman is predicting it will feel like 103 degrees later – and I kept walking to cool myself down.
I hear a lot that people feel like they are “quitting” when they stop running to walk, but I never do! Walking is sometimes NECESSARY, and you should never feel bad for walking when you’re tired or sore or when the weather isn’t cooperating.
Bondi Bands help, too!
Since I did so much walking, my overall pace was impacted, but I didn’t mind. Mileage is mileage!
- Distance: 5.0 miles
- Duration: 53:35
Pre-run snack was a butt of a loaf of bread:
And breakfast was a crunchy piece of toast, a fried egg, and a Green Monster.
The Green Monster included Vega Shake & Go Vanilla to help me refuel.
- 1 cup rice milk
- 2 cups spinach
- 1 banana
- 2.5 tablespoons Vega Shake & Go Vanilla
And… we’re off!
