My flight from NYC to Charlotte ended up being delayed by an hour and twenty minutes. Which I would have been really sad about normally, butâ€¦ there was an XpresSpa right next to my gate. 🙂 So I got an express back and neck massage and a manicure.
And I read Ultramarathon Man. Dean Karnazes is so insane. He runs 50+ miles, 100+ miles, and other crazy intense stuff. Iâ€™m not sure whether to think heâ€™s NUTS or extremely awesome. Maybe a little of both.
If youâ€™re an ultramarathoner (?!), why do you do it? Iâ€™m curious! I donâ€™t think I could ever go a step over a regular marathonâ€¦ 26.2 miles is hard enough! 🙂
Grabbed a makeshift meal from the airport kiosk:
I had edamame â€“ which seems to be popular up here in NYC! They were perfectly steamed and only a little salty.
A Sabra hummus to-go cup with pretzels. This was so handy for a traveler.
And a bar that Iâ€™ve never sene before called 18 Rabbits. This was SUCH a great bar â€“ super chewy with lots of dates and whole pumpkin seeds.
And then we landed, and I was suddenly back home. My quiet, simple, little place. I think NYC is awesomeâ€¦ but I could never live there. I guess Iâ€™m too small town at heart. 🙂
Walked in my house and found this little display!
My Charlotte friends had called the Husband, come over, and decorated our apartment with post-it notes and congrats cards. And they gave me a gift card to Yoforia! It was honestly one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. 🙂
On a less cheerful note, the Husband killed the basil plant while I was gone. Please note that I did not personally kill it.
Do you think I can perform plant CPR on it (AKA drench in water) and it will come back to life?!
Wine consoled me.
(After taking this picture, I promptly poured my wine into a clean glass. Ew!)
And now, friendsâ€¦ Iâ€™m munching on Grape Nuts and almond milk and watching a really funny movie called Away We Go.
Itâ€™s Jim from The Office! He was pretty funny. Two thumbs up!
Iâ€™m off to bed! See you for a marathon long run in the AM! Dean has inspired me! 😉
