To celebrate JRC being named as one of the Top 50 specialty running stores in the country, they hosted a little breakfast get together at the store this morning. I had put today as my goal date of being able to run again, but that didn't really happen (more on that in a future post). Still, I wasn't about to pass up free food and coffee from my favorite store.
It's a very well-deserved honor: I never would have made it as far in my marathon training without the help of JRC - they helped me with my shoes, gear, and their group runs gave me motivation to get my butt out of bed, especially on Sundays, to train. Now that I'm 2 runs away from earning my "elite" shirt (for 50 or more group runs), I'm even more motivated to heal up.
Back to the breakfast - we had a full spread: bagels, bananas, oranges, coffee, OJ, and even some champagne to make a mimosa. After 1/4 of a bagel (I have nothing to "carb load" for) and 3 cups of coffee (yikes), I headed home with some extra bananas - expect a banana bread recipe soon!
