Accidentally Ran a Road Race

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Brookings. I got up around 8:30 and went out for a run. While on my run, I found myself in the middle of a 5K road race. Haha! Ok, I’ll explain. I got onto the bike trail and was running through Larson Park when I spotted a bike followed by a bunch of runners coming towards me. Apparently the Chi Omega sorority was putting on a road race for the Children’s Miracle Foundation. I had seen posters around campus for it, but I didn’t realize it was today. So I ran for a couple miles with the racers until we hit a fork in the path and they went one way and I went another :). I ended up running ten miles this morning. It felt great! 

After I got back home, I didn’t want to go inside so I had breakfast on the deck. Breakfast consisted of a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats with chocolate bunches and flaxseed sprinkled on top. Yummo! 
Mom got into Brookings around 12:30 and we met up with Taber for lunch at Bagelworks. I had a chicken breast ciabatta sandwich and a cranberry-white chocolate chip cookie for dessert. So good! With a little influence from Mom, I decided to introduce myself to the manager. He told me that he’s been really busy lately, but he said he would have summer employment figured out by April 15th. Only five days away! Yay! Also, he said he put my application in the “good pile”. Haha! Definitely a good sign :).
After the wedding, Mom came over to the apartment for a bit to visit before she had to leave for Sioux Falls. The rest of my afternoon was spent doing homework, filling out a scholarship application, writing an essay, and doing other things that were long overdue. It was an awesomely productive afternoon. I’m ready to tackle anything now :).
For supper, I had one of my favorite meals–a Hot Hannah Banana sandwich along with an apple and a piece of chocolate for dessert.

I never get sick of the peanut butter and banana combo. For a late night snack, I had a banana with PB and vanilla yogurt.

I think I’m gonna read a few chapter of Great Expectations tonight. I’m only a few chapters in, and I’m already loving it! Thanks for the recommendation, Marie! And for loaning me the book :).
