Good morning all, or should I say good afternoon?
I usually wake up early on Tuesdays to go for a little 3 mile run, but as the heart of summer creeps on, so does the heat. I find that I am setting my alarm earlier and earlier just to avoid the hot sun…
Today, I did not go on my usual jaunt. I went down to my old high school’s sports fields to play a couple hours of Ultimate Frisbee. Man, do I love Ultimate. I don’t considerate myself good by any means, I just love endurance sports. I am that girl who consistently jogs back and forth following the disc with the occasional sprint burst here and there when needed.
Three hours later, I was back home and bushed. The heat and sun really takes it out of me. I kept hydrated while playing, but I needed sustenance. I went to my go to–smoothies.
