This morning the Hubz and I had intended on getting up early to run before heading to Montpelier to watch Allie and Caitlin’s race but after a late night out at a concert we decided that a little extra sleep was a better idea. Once we finally rolled out of bed we headed on our way but first we made a pit stop at a new coffee shop Maglianero Cafe for a coffee. This new coffee shop is really a beautiful place and it is bike friendly. I got a hot drip coffee and the Hubz an iced coffee- both were amazingly delicious.
After our coffee we made our way to Montpelier just in time to see Allie and Caitlin at the first start of the race. While we waited for them to make the loop back to the finish we headed to our favorite Capitol City Farmers Market to pick up some veggies and our favorite bookstore Bear Pond Books. Around 9:30 am we headed to the race finish line and watched as runners began to arrive and waited to cheer on Allie and Caitlin.

Around 43 minutes I turned to Neil and said they’ll be here in 10 minutes, that’s my guess. Well guess what- I WAS RIGHT ON! Allie and Caitlin turned the corner at 52 minutes and some seconds and they leaped across the finish line at 53 minutes. They were really amazing and I am so proud.
Check out the shirts the girls made for the race:

After the race we headed to The Skinny Pancake for crepes and to catch up. Neil and I both got the Vegan Monster with mushrooms and salsa and topped with our favorite hot sauce.
Following brunch we headed to the Hunger Mountain Co-op to take a look but we didn’t pick up much just a yummy chocolate bar and coconut rolled dates for the Hubz. When we were leaving I decided to take a peak at the sign up sheet for my Sugar Blues workshop next week and guess what? It was FULL- even the wait list is full!!! Squeal! Eeek! OMG! The pressure is on!
When we finally made it back to Burlington the Hubz and I took a look at the clock and decided we better head to the gym before it closed. Today we decided to get a 250 meter swim in as well as our run. I haven’t been feeling great, a little congested, so todays workout wasn’t the best on top of the fact that my legs were killing me from yesterdays squats and lunges. After our run we stopped in at Healthy Living for a smoothie and coconut water as well as some organic strawberries and organic apples. The Hubz and I shared a banana-peanut butter-flax-coconut smoothie and it was delicious.
Now it’s time for dinner, The Voice, foam rolling and relaxing with a movie. What are you up to this weekend?
