Good morning, nation’s capital!It’s been a while since I tackled the Cathedral Climb, which is about a 350-foot incline over 1.75 miles. Phew.My shoes are still soggy from yesterday, so I decided to destroy my beautiful Nike Frees today instead. It has been freaking rainy here in DC… the whole city feels like an over-saturated sponge. And now all of my running shoes are damp and smelly.On a more positive note, it is still lovely outside. The summer sun is so inspiring compared to the dark, lonely days of winter.This chair was looking pretty lonely, though. Poor guy. You can pick him up on Macomb Street.Want to hear something even grosser than smelly, muddy shoes? Okay.
So, seven weeks ago, I was on a run and a bug flew into my eye. Yep, right in there. I tried to get the bugger out and even frantically stopped another runner to poke around my eye (yes, she thought I was insane), but we couldn’t find the bug. About five hours later the bug finally came out in all of its winged, black, buggy glory. Unfortunately ever since that lovely incident, my left eye has been kind of oozy and goopy.
So I finally decided to see an eye doctor yesterday who confirmed that it has been infected for seven weeks. NICE.It’s not really a big deal, just a bit of minor bacterial warfare occurring atop of my eyeball. Some cleaning drops to fix it. Oh, the joys of running!
Because it is a bit gloomy today I want to share this photo. Every time I see French toast I get a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. Don’t you?The only thing that would have made this breakfast even more perfect is good company. Anthony is in Jamaica for work at present so I only had the clink of silverware to entertain me! And to be completely honest with you here on the internet, I also enjoyed it alongside an episode of The Bachelorette.
Hope you guys have a rockstar Tuesday, if there is such a thing. Let’s make it happen!
- Does the weather affect your mood very much?
- What’s the MOST important element of breakfast? Food? Beverage? Company? Environment? Timing?
- Do you put your shoes in the washer/dryer? I’m considering doing this…
