A hot cup of tea to start the day!
Yogi Egyptian licorice mint tea is one of my all-time favorite teas and I have Ryan hooked, too! (If you’ve ever tried the tea they serve at Aveda, it reminds me a lot of their tea.) Such a unique flavor!
I am also a sucker for the little messages printed on Yogi tea bags.
I know you mean well, Yogi, but no one should have to endure my singing. I’ll leave singing to the talented Gretchen!
When I walked into the kitchen to make breakfast, the avocado in our pantry called to me.
I made myself a plate of scrambled eggs with peppers, shredded cheese and the glorious avocado.
Plus a cup of Greek yogurt on the side for a little sweetness.
Last weekend 26.2 with Donna, the only marathon in the U.S. dedicated solely to raising funds to end breast cancer, took place in Jacksonville, Florida. The runners ran by my parents’ place and my dad said it was incredibly inspirational and exciting.
Yesterday my dad brought up the idea of possibly running the marathon relay next year! Each relay team includes five runners that complete five different legs of the race:
- Leg 1: 6 miles
- Leg 2: 3.75 miles
- Leg 3: 6.75 miles
- Leg 4: 3.5 miles
- Leg 5: 6.2 miles
I think it would be so much fun and I’m sure that participating in the breast cancer marathon would be incredibly moving.
I’ve never participated in a running relay race before, but I have done a triathlon relay in Orlando. I was the swimmer for our team (Ryan swam for his team), my friend Ryan ran and my friend Laurel biked.
It was a blast and I’d love to do another one. My dad recently took up biking, so I’m hoping we can do a triathlon relay together sometime this year.
