1) After a little break yesterday (did you “celebrate” National Running Day”?), it actually felt great to be back up at 5:00 a.m. this morning for my new-usual workout. I met two gals at Dupont Circle, and we took the Zoo route backwards. While it’s a hilly route any way you take, going down through the Zoo is always easier. We took the Rock Creek trail back to Calvert Hill – a climb I haven’t tackled in months. My glutes are already reminding me of that! 5.25 miles, 45 minutes, 2 climbs, 1 good morning run.
2) ST30 Update! I have a confession: I fell off the wagon. I know, I know. This isn’t something I’m proud to admit, but we’re all about honesty here at DOTR. From Thursday – Tuesday, I completely spaced a “ST” workout. I may have squeezed in a “normal” workout (e.g. run, bike), but my arms/abs/quads/glutes had an unintentional break.
It’s not too late to get back on; Tuesday I did my Core workout (hello again, abs), Wednesday I did squats, and this morning I did pushups. We have 8 days to go! How is your Challenge going?
3) Agave is the new pink! Or, something else that’s been trendy. I LOVE this sweetener; it has been gracing the top of my oats every morning for the past two weeks. I recently read an article about it, and want to focus on that tomorrow for Friday’s Food Focus. Before I get into it, I’m seeking your input – Do you use Agave? Do you prefer Agave over Honey?
On a completely unrelated note – I was part of a “Tweet Up” last night, and we had a great time!

We had a great dinner at Busboys & Poets – if you’d like to be included in Round 2, send me an email! 🙂
p.s. go ahead and excuse the picture quality, a la Blackberry.
