Guys…today feels like fall 🍁🍂
- ran 8 miles this morning with an OK pace of 8:10min/mile. Was content with the run but definitely felt the legs fatigued from the previous miles during the hills.
- walked to Whole Foods and got some fresh produce…OH on a good note Whole Foods prices are dropping and there were some good sales 🤗
Happy Thursday ⭐️
Good morning ☀️ I have sunshine in a bowl this morning, not that we need anymore sunshine lately! 😳💦 I thought grapes in oatmeal would be a good idea but it turns out it’s just weird. 😅 I prefer them on their own! 🍇👌
