Bears, Snakes and ABCs
This morning I woke up from a dream where a black bear was holding me down while a rattlesnake attacked me. When the alarm went off I was so involved in the dream that I didn’t think I could move my arm from under the bear to turn it off. Needless to say I was a little out of it.
I got through my 8 mile tempo run with the help of a Vanilla Bean GU, but I was definitely tired!
At the mall the other day I was thinking about buying a jean-like button down shirt. But then I remembered I have this tunic which works perfectly. Moral of the story: shop your closet first!
Second moral of the story: I need a haircut.
It feels like forever since I’ve had my Chia Banana Oatmeal with Sunflower Butter. I welcomed it back with an open mouth.
