Last night wasn’t as chilly as the previous two. I’m also comforted by the fact that ONE MORE NIGHT and then the weather gets a bit warmer. Actually, it’s rather beautiful outside. The sun shines and we have that lovely spring weather where it goes from sunny to snow to rain in about 15 minutes. I enjoy watching it from the inside of my work or van. Mother Nature is kind of great.
I think tonight I will park further away from downtown and try to be self-reliant. Meaning I will not be near work or people, and try to park at a place I am unfamiliar. I want to either hike or do a short run at Treman tomorrow, however I might wait until it warms up a bit. I was also a bit winded on my run today, so I want to see how I feel.
Yesterday I got a small single burner butane stove for boiling water. I will make oatmeal and coffee without assistance tomorrow morning. That is my goal. One step at a time. I need to buy the grounds first…
Tomorrow is also the Skunk Cabbage half marathon, my absolute favorite. I won it twice and it’s such a beautiful course with great people. Maybe I will stop by and cheer. There is a trail near the race, so I could run that and then head to the finish to support everyone. Oh, the possibilities!
This afternoon I am getting lunch and going grocery shopping with my friend Fabian. He is the best and doesn’t have a car. So I get to trap him for a few hours while I take him to get groceries. I think we’ll eat at GreenStar. I want some tempeh, so I hope they have it in their hot foods bar.
Breakfast: oatmeal with peanut butter and fruit
Running: 51 minutes
