This morning I went over to a friend’s house and ran with a group of friends he had pulled together. We all did a nice little loop through some trails and across many cute wooden bridges, then three of us went back out and hit the pavement for another half hour. It was somewhere between 8 and 9 miles. Good enough for my long run. I had decided early on to run for time instead of distance today.
The friend hosting the group had picked up a dozen doughnuts last night for us all to share after running.
I had not eaten a doughnut since August.
I had a glazed one.
I swear it was the best doughnut I have ever had in my life. IN MY LIFE.
Then I came home and had a grilled cheese sandwich. And a protein bar.
But guys. That doughnut.
I was in heaven.
