Field Trip!

Went to bed right after “Glee” and feel so much better now!  Not a 100%, but getting there! 🙂

In my rush to get out the door for today’s field trip, I neglected to take a picture of my breakfast.  Again.  It was the same breakfast as yesterday, though. 🙂

Field Trip

For our Senior Design project, my team is creating a publication on how to produce and sell your own apple cider in a sustainable way.  As part of our research, we got to visit a nearby orchard to watch them produce their cider.  It was really cool!  I know which stand I’m getting my cider from at the Farmer’s Market this week. 🙂  Especially since it contains only juice.  No sugar.  No preservatives.  Nothing but apples.

After our field trip, I decided to get my run for the day in.  My energy was flagging a bit, and my motivation was low, so I decided to run 2 miles, but at a faster pace than I’m usually comfortable with.  I ran fast!

2.0 miles

19:08 time (average 9:40 pace!)


I’m still feeling a little “off” today, so I decided some comfort food was in order…

Comfort Food

I was in the mood for the ultimate “comfort food” today… mac & cheese.  Yes, I occasionally eat the boxed stuff.  This one was alfredo though:

What’s your comfort food?
