Yay, sunshine and blue sky! Oh, how I’ve missed you!
I saw the light coming through my curtains even before getting out of bed and knew that I needed to put on my running clothes immediately and hit the road sidewalk. Well, that was an hour ago and I am still working on breakfast and coffee but I have every intention of getting out soon.
I know you can run in the rain, and I used to do it in Portland but I haven’t been feeling it this week so I am excited for a run today. At this rate I may even be able to keep on track with this weeks MISSION.
Happy October! Tate, Matt, Kath, Alex, Eric, and I started celebrating this great fall month last night with a trip to Blue Mountain Brewery for Oktoberfest festivities. Yesterday was “Steal the Stein” at the the brewery and $7 got you one of these filled with the beer of your choice
I opted for the sampler and tasted 6 of their brews
Kath went for the sampler as well so with all those little shots of brew we had over a dozen beers on our table! Yeah, it was a good night.
Look at what I received in the mail yesterday!
6 bottles of California wine from Wine Insiders. I bought a Groupon last month to this online wine store because it was a steal at $25 for $75 worth of credit. This box of assorted wines was on sale for $35 including shipping! I really like shopping for wine, reading the labels, checking the color, all of that, but it was still pretty sweet to have 6 bottles delivered to my house for just a couple of bucks a bottle.
Do you use Groupon? Have you made a purchase? Unfortunately, there isn’t a Charlottesville option so I receive the sales for D.C and Richmond and the wine is the only purchase to date.
It’s so time to run. Today’s run is going to be 4.5 miles with 20 minutes of sprint intervals in the middle. Wish me luck.
