Freshen Up

What a glorious morning in Golden!


I was a tired girl this morning. I wanted to sleep forever. Well, not really, but you get the point. I was a little ambitious last night and claimed I was going to get up early and get a 40 or so mile road ride in before heading to a conference here in about an hour. Didn’t happen. I think it is for the best. My body is tired.

That said, I still got seriously sweaty this morning. I ran exactly a half mile to a park where I did a few rounds of a circuit workout that included things like lunges, burpees, tricep dips, pushups, squat jumps and some other stuff. Then ran the half mile home. That’s a mile for Run Streak Day number six.


I did a bit more, mostly core, when I got home. I needed more props than the park had to offer. I left a serious sweat puddle on the living room floor.


Golden Farmer’s Market

I showered off and jumped on my bike for a quick trip to the Golden Farmer’s Market. Today was the opening day of the Farmer’s Market for the summer season. It isn’t a very big farmer’s market, but I can always find something to buy there. I have to limit how much cash I have on hand so I don’t end up blowing our budget on tasty dips, pickled vegetables, homemade granola, fresh bread and pastries (OMG I want them all), crepes and all the other deliciousness that is sold at the farmer’s market. This year’s selection doesn’t seem to be much different from last year, but it is always a nice way to start a Saturday. It is more fun when others join though. I picked up some greens – kale and red leaf lettuce – and some beets. Not sure what I’ll do with them yet though. I just love beets.

Do you have any good beet recipes?


Off to a conference for the rest of the day. Enjoy your Saturday!
