This morning I got up and ran 7 miles along the lakefront ending at the last Green City up at the Nature Museum. I am really glad that they managed to have a market throughout the winter but I am VERY excited for it to come back down into the park right by my apartment. My legs are getting very tight/sore/tired from all my training but I feel pretty awesome that I was able to run for an hour and 20 mins today (I run slow and don’t hesitate to drink a few gulps at every water fountain I see). 2 years ago, I couldn’t even run a mile.
The market this morning also had a lovely visitor named Alice Waters. She was at the end of a LONG line to sign copies of her books. I wish I had the time or the money to get a copy signed. Maybe next time. I am sure she will be back.
I came home from my run and finally busted out my sample pack of Buitoni’s Wild Mushroom Agnolotti. I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful taste of the filling. I will have to see if I can track another pack down at the store. It was a quick and easy lunch after my long run which left me STARVING. Thanks Foodbuzz for the free sample! (next time figure out a better way to ship it-such a HUGE box for such a tiny package).
