Double-Header Saturday

What a perfect day for a double header! I had nothing planned for today except for a run, and I get to watch baseball twice. I wish all Saturdays were like this one!

I was up on my own this morning at 7:45. I got up and had some tea before making breakfast:

breakfast1Cereal with soy milk:

cerealApplesauce and strawberries, which aren’t really ready yet. I don’t know how that is, because the strawberries in St. Louis the past two weeks were really good.

fruitAnd some iced coffee. My Keurig here doesn’t brew a 4 oz. cup of coffee, so I had to brew 6 oz. instead. Not quite at good.

coffeeI’m thinking about getting a french press and cold-brewing my coffee overnight.

breakfast2I piddled around for a while this morning before finally heading out for my run. Since I’m not training for anything right now, I planned to run somewhere between 5-6 miles, depending on how I was feeling. So I set out with my fuel belt to explore the neighborhood near the apartment.

The route I took was pretty disappointing. None of the streets ran long enough for me to get any substantial mileage out of it. I did a few out-and-backs but was struggling to put much together.

Post-run fuel:

m&msA few frozen M&Ms. Yum!

After my run, I took a shower and it was time for baseball game number one! I enjoyed this game with some lunch:

dinner1Black bean quesadilla! So good.
