It was 35 degrees this afternoon, sunny, and no wind. My kind of weather!
My parents kept an eye on Emily while she napped, so I could go for a run. I did 10 miles in 1:15 and change, and felt terrific. If I can feel good maintaining that pace on a regular training run, I'd expect to bang out at least the last 5k in under 7:32/mile in a race environment. That would bring me under my goal time of 1:40. Looks like I'm on right on target. I really hope it stays cold for the race. I feel so much better in it.
Later on I while I was out, I picked up one of these. Have you tried it? I remember watching the challenge to create a new Snapple flavor on the finale of the Celebrity Apprentice last season, but this is the first time I've seen it in a store.
It's mango flavored ice tea with a spicy cinnamon finish. There's some other fruit in there too, but it's the mango that's predominant. Doesn't sound like things that would go together, but somehow it works.
I can't remember the last time I had rum (or even a Snapple for that matter), but as I sipped I kept thinking it good it would be mixed a little. Hmmm, is my subconcious trying to tell me something?
