2.3 mile run to breakfast.
We split stuffed french toast and hash with “eggs” benedict on a biscuit from Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge.
You need to have a closer look.
And then we made our way to MIT. One of our running buddies is an MIT alum. This is where all those intellectual conversations we have on the run that go way over my head were born. Students were literally carrying around robots here.
We wandered back across the river to Faneuil Hall and then Boston Public Market. We found this incredible vegan Rasberry Basil Lime donut. Sounds weird, but it was so good!!
I found a gift card in my purse from Christmas and checked the balance. It was enough to buy me this jacket that I was eyeing at the expo. It was like Christmas all over again. Thanks, mom!
And I got to meet Ryan Hall, again!!
I told him I qualified for Boston at the 2014 Dallas Marathon and he was the one who handed me my finisher medal.
So we bought $15 worth of Clif bars to get this “free” hat. Sweet deal, right?
We had dinner at My Thai Vegan Cafe. We split some fried tofu and veggie thing and a “chicken” and broccoli thing. Both were delicious!!
We wandered on back to our hotel but stopped by Whole Foods Market and grabbed a Coconut Kombucha. Seriously, one of the best things I’ve ever drank.
We made one more necessary stop by J.P. Licks for some Hemp Cookies & Cream ice cream. It was over $4 each for an itty bitty scoop, so we were thrifty and split a $7 pint.
10 hours and 18 miles on our feet later, we crashed in the hotel. My legs will regret this on Monday, but I won’t. I had the best day!!
Sunday plans: bike to Veggie Galaxy for breakfast, wander Beacon Hill, dinner at All That Pizza bar, probably another pint of ice cream, and early to bed. Any other suggestions?
