Since I moved to Charlotte last July, I have found three stray dogs on runs and successfully reunited them with their owners. :) Todayâ€™s pup was Reilly! He was blind and deaf and oh-so-cute. His mommy was glad to see him.
I took your advice and dealt with my Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness by walk/running 4.0 miles instead of straight-up running 5.0 miles as my plan called for (and now Iâ€™m going to stretch). I walked most of the 4.0 miles but I ended up feeling energized, which was a nice change from feeling worn out by a run! Nicole joined me for two miles, too (and helped me carry Reilly home).
Lunch was FABULOUS. Make this easy dish NOW!
I boiled wheatberries for 15 minutes, drained, and combined with lightly stir-fried broccoli and corn, raw carrots, and creamy balsamic. With a fried egg mixed in, too:
Three fun things:
- Iâ€™m collecting new guest posts for Operation Beautifulâ€™s Change the Way You See, Not the Way You Look section. If you have any posts or stories (you donâ€™t have to be a blogger to participate) about body image or self-esteem that youâ€™d like to share on the site, please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Please include a link to your blog so I can link back.
- Check out this post I wrote about finding my sense of spirituality.
- Iâ€™m twittering now for Girls on the Run Charlotte at @GOTRCharlotte. Please follow me if youâ€™re a local reader (or just love GOTR!).
Question of the day: Anyone running any races this weekend? Good luck! I wish I was running a race. 🙂
