I ran 9 miles this morning, running the four middle miles a little faster than goal half marathon pace (8:16/mi). My goal was to run the faster four miles at 10K pace or half marathon pace. It's good to have two goals, just in case. So I met one goal! ; )
Rainforest Cafe, Galleria Mall
After the run, my husband and I ate at the Rainforest Cafe for the first time, where they have animatronics perched throughout the restaurant. Tigers, gorillas and elephants came to life when we heard thunder and pouring rain. It was a fun change, out of the ordinary.
I had a delicious salad: pecans, strawberries, cranberries, feta cheese, spinach, red leaf lettuce with a vinaigrette dressing.
When I got home, I made some granola which made my house smell delicious.
And then we went for a short motorcycle ride around Memorial Park - wish we could have ridden down this path, but we had to stick to the roads. I had some scary moments. We're going how fast?! 30, 30, the speed limit is only 30 here! (My husband was driving.) My legs were so sore when the ride was over - I held on tightly with them. And now we're home, safe and sound!
