Like I said yesterday, I’m all about running dates to help me through my marathon training. Last night was the perfect example. I met up with my friend Heidi right after work and we headed for the park. She is about to move back to Finland so this was our last run together. The next time I see her will be before the New York City Marathon!
Right away she said she wanted to do a longer run. I was super tired from staying up late watching the Super Bowl but I said okay – let’s do the six mile loop! I would have never done that by myself. It was so much fun and the time flew by! It was one of the best six mile runs I’ve ever had. Running with friends is the best!
After the run Heidi wanted to stop by Juice Press. I’d walked by the store before but had never gone inside. Juice Press is a raw food and juice store. They also do juice cleanses.
I knew once I walked in I was in trouble. The place was awesome! All the food and juice looked so good and of course it’s all super healthy!
Heidi did warn me it was expensive. SHE WAS RIGHT. The juice I bought was $13.50… I didn’t see the price until after I paid. Oops.
Juice Press recommends that for beginners to start slow. Swap out one meal for a juice. This morning I had the $13.50 juice for breakfast. And NO COFFEE. This is a huge deal. Coffee is like my best friend.
I’m super excited to try some of the other juices and the food. They have a vegan cheesecake that is supposed to be amazing.
Pure Barre tonight!
