. . . and Dove chocolate was there to help pick me up . . .
Dove spoke to me today while I was satisfying my
hourly chocolate craving. To me, it just means to try new things and/or push yourself
beyond what you think are your limits.
I feel a little empowered each time I try a new hike or try to run a
little farther or a little faster.
I don’t always run as fast as I want or run as fast for as long as I
want, but I’m never sorry that I pushed myself and tested my limits.
This also works to energize me:
I know it is kind of old news, but is still incredible.
Today I only planned on running 3 miles, but I felt so great I went ahead and did 4. The weather has been a little cooler her in Las Vegas this week, but mostly due to the wind. Today, the wind finally relented a little and I got to get outside and stretch my legs. I was also probably fueled by the inspiration that I'm constantly reading on twitter from the runners around the country/globe who are running in honor of those affected by Monday's senseless attacks
Random Food Notes:
I made a really delicious salad for lunch today. I should really take more pictures . . . I'll work on that. My salad consisted of spinach, pepitas, golden raisins, two chicken fingers drenched in buffalo sauce, and, of course, my trusty yogurt-based blue cheese dressing (last seen here). *so* delicious - next time there will be pictures. It was actually a nice mix of colors.
