How ridiculous — cleaning snow off my car in running shorts? Spring Break, really?!
Since last week’s injection in my knee, I have been on the easy pass with running. After the snow mobile was clean, I hit the gym for a 2 mile light run and then relaxed catching up on hours of Downton Abbey (hey, I’m on Spring Break, don’t judge!).
Today, I had another visit scheduled with my friendly orthopedic doctor, so I squeezed in another two mile run before our visit. After the injection, I knew it would be a few days before I could get out, so I tried to make it count. And boy did I! I ran my first 9 minute mile EVER! Now, how far into the nine minutes, we won’t discuss. But since it was somewhere in the nines, I’m calling it a 9 minute mile!
After, I headed to South Philly for some Flyers pre-gaming at South Philadelphia Taproom for happy hour — all apps and local draft beers were half price. Score for the home team!
Nitro: Sly Fox O’Reilly’s Stout and Manayunk Schuylkill Funk, along with Wild Boar Tacos…enough said. WINNER!
A little icing in the Flyers zone. Seats were 9 rows from the ice! Sweet!
Too bad the Flyers didn’t come to play tonight
not winner but a good time was had by all.
Spring Break is winding down and after the cold start, this Philly girl is finally heading south, and I don’t mean South Philadelphia.
I’m off to the Big Easy, the land of beignets, po’ boys, and hurricanes — drinks, that is! Goodbye, cold, snow, and ice! Hello, Spring!
