Rainy Saturday

My calendar had me running 8 miles today.  Yeah, that didn’t happen.  Dear Knee, I wish you were feeling better.  Cooler heads have prevailed and I am “officially” no longer running the Princess Half.  I feel bummed but very relieved to have made the decision.  I may have been able to pull it off, but at what price glory?  It wouldn’t have been the race I wanted.  I am also not running the Jingle Bell 5K tomorrow.  But I am going to a physical therapy appointment on Monday.  And so the rehabilitation begins.

Instead of running 8 miles, my sister and I got a massage.  We had bought a Groupon a while ago for a massage and finally used it.  It was a smidge on the fru-fru side, but it was nice and relaxing.  Afterwards, we had lunch at Portage Bay Cafe.  Yum!!  I had Whole Wheat Apple pancakes, topped with all sorts of goodies from their topping bar.  And real eggnog!

We met Kris (her husband) at a local farmer’s market.  I picked up some pumpkin butter and spiced blackberry wine.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the pumpkin butter, but I know I’ll figure something out.  I’m excited about the wine, because you can warm it up which I am hoping will taste like mulled wine.  I was a little overwhelmed with all the other vegetable choices and I had no shopping list.  Maybe next time. 

The rest of my day was spent running errands and doing Christmas shopping (I think I’m just about done).
