Ice Cream for Breakfast

Saturday morning started with a 4:20 am wake up call to meet my group for a 10 mile run. A couple things crossed my mind before this run, and I realized that you know you’re a runner (or crazy) when:

  • Getting up at 4:20 am feels like sleeping in
  • Running 10 miles sounds like an easy run

I got my feet ready this time. Two pairs of socks and Band-Aids on all blister-prone areas.

My friend Nicole (who should really update her blog more often) recommended Band-Aid Cushions for the top of my feet to prevent rashes. I’ll get some of those next time I’m at the store. Anything to make the run more comfortable. I figure at this rate, I’ll be running in diapers by October.

I decided to try grapes as fuel on this run. They didn’t fit in my iFitnes belt.

But they did look like a horrible version of Fiona Apple’s Extraordinary Machine album cover.

I ended up putting the grapes in my sports bra. Then I didn’t even eat them because I felt so good on the run I was afraid to ruin it. Also, running with grapes in your sports bra is dumb. At least runners understand and don’t question third breasts.

During the run, I met Lauren. We were both feeling pretty good so we picked up the pace a little and ran the last 5 or so miles together until she chicked me during the last mile. I ended with 10.35 miles on my Garmin and a 10:31 pace (including the walking breaks) and felt good the whole time. Everyone elses Garmin said 10.5 miles. Is there a way to calibrate a Garmin? Mine is always off from everyone elses lately.

When I got home, I took a shower and then finished a pint of Cake Batter ice cream for breakfast. No need to put clothes on for that.

Saturday night, a group of us went to a birthday celebration for Sheila (i.e. She who torments me in Martial Arts Fitness Class). We started with dinner at Bahama Breeze.

Hubs and I shared the goat cheese appetizer which was awesome.

Then we shared some chicken dish with a side of cinnamon mashed sweet potatoes. Also delicious. I remembered to take a picture of it when I was half way through and it looked like a turd.

Why yes. I do like to cut up all my meat first and then eat it instead of  cutting it as I take bites.

After dinner, we all went to a comedy show at Bonkerz Comedy Club, which is located in the Why Not Lounge. The Why Not Lounge is a bar inside a hotel in Altamonte Springs and used to be a regular Saturday night affair for me and Lisa when I first moved to Orlando. Hubs and I were glad to see the bar has not lost any of it’s old-man-on-the-prowl slimy allure. 🙂

The show had some good and not so good comedians but overall, we had a great time. After the show, we went home and watched the first episode of Game of Thrones. I think it’s safe to say I have no idea what that show is about. Anyone else watch that one yet?

    I’ve heard breasts referred to AS grapes, but this will be the first time I’ve heard breasts WITH grapes.

  3. Thank you for writing your blog. Grapes as fuel on a LR – such a good idea! I’m gonna try it next weekend!

  4. That goat cheese appy looks like a plate full of happiness 🙂

  5. I was tempted to try to eat your appetizer through my computer screen. It looks so yum!*

    I started to read GOT but I couldn’t get into it. It is freaking long too. TWSS

  7. I have never tried freezing grapes but now you have me wanting to. And 4:20am is damn early! I was up at 8am and then was having a nap by 9am. Yes, I struggle with early mornings and that’s not even early. Glad to hear your run went well though!

  8. Nobody is going to make the “you woke up at 4:20, I’m surprised you didn’t fuel on Doritos” joke? Really? Then consider it done. The red pepper goat cheese app is pretty awesome indeed.

    Wow-I’m not getting up at 4:30 for anything–that’s dedication. The last time I was up at that hour I was in college…and probably eating a pint of B&J for a late night snack. And I can’t imagine how those grapes added to the jiggle factor.

  10. Band-Aid Cushion are my fave too, I wear them every time I run because my feet blister up almost every single time I do a long run; they’ve helped a lot!

    Game of Thrones will grow on you! I was thoroughly confused during the first episode, and I remember telling my hubby that this show sucked. Luckily we kept watching it and after the second episode I was completely hooked!

  12. I want to move to Orlando and be friends with you. Seriously. You guys are always doing fun things. Does hubs have any single friends?

    You will love Game of Thrones!!! It gets real good. I am not a huge Fantasy/Sci Fi fan, but it’s a great series.

    It takes most people until about episode 3 to become slavishly devoted to Game of Thrones but it does happen and it is worth it. Trust me. You know I don’t like fantasy usually. This turned out to be the exception that makes my rule!
