I’ve Run Everywhere, Man…..

Ok, not quite but many awesome places….

My St. Louis Blues lost last night 😦

I haven’t given up hope. But it’s not a good situation. It doesn’t matter….I love St. Louis Blues hockey.

I’m watching Angels v Yankees and it reminds me that I am very pissed at Albert Pujols. He was a God in St. Louis, what amount of money could beat that? We refered to him as “King Albert.” Anyway….bastard!

Kevin and I had a 7 mile run around the perimeter of Forest Park. It was as beautiful as a run that I’ve ever had except maybe across the “Golden Gate Bridge” in San Francisco or the beaches of Carmel and Santa Cruz (both are spectacular) but it was awesome.

I was still a pretty big girl back in Aug 2010 but I ran over the Golden Gate Bridge and back - 3 miles round trip.

We did well on our morning run in Forest Park but the hills are very challenging especially on the Skinker side. I had a decent pace. I was due for 8 miles but I since I ran with Kevin, I had to cut it short. 😦 He holds me back a bit but I like running with him

It’s a beautiful day here in the Lou!

We went to Soulard Market for some fruit and no better place to get good for cheap. I bought Clementines and had a couple bud light!

We had lunch at Llywelyn’s in Soulard and I had my usual “Buffalo Chicken Wrap.” I burned ~1100 calories on my run so I felt that I could. That is such an awesome plus to running.

I’ll be a good girl the rest of the day and my calories are still in check.

I weighed yesterday and I’m about 2 lbs under my goal weight. I couldn’t quit smiling from that. Really though, I need to take a few more off before the marathon Rock ‘n Roll – St. Louis for October. I suspect the training will take that weight off.

We may meet up with my son after he gets off work to have a beer at Ballpark Village. I haven’t had a chance to spend time with him in a while. Sometimes our relationship is not as close as I wish. 😦

Maybe Daniel will spend the night? We plan on taking Daniel fishing tomorrow. He’s almost 7 and has never been as he reminded me last weekend! 🙂

I’m tired and happy….

Then back home to Columbia tomorrow afternoon. Go Blues!
