Call me crazy, but I love getting up early on Saturday mornings and taking off on a great run. In fact it’s something I look forward to all week.
On Saturdays there is no pressure to be back at a certain time and I feel like I can do limitless miles. I also love how Saturdays give me the opportunity to run somewhere other then just around my neighborhood.
This morning I drove to beautiful Baldwin park and did a wonderful 6.5 miles. 2 loops around the lake and 1 around around the park equals the perfect mix of scenery and distance. I averaged a 9:30 pace and spent the majority of my run politely nodding and smiling at my other early morning runners.
After my run I met Derek and Maddie at the Winter Park’s Farmer Market for some fresh produce and breakfast.
This was Maddie’s first time at a Farmer’s Market and I really think she enjoyed it. She loves other dogs and just kept wanting to walk up and introduce herself to everyone.
There is a popular bagel stand at the Winter Farmer’s Market that always has a line out the door.
I have been wanting to try it for a while and decided today would be perfect.
I ordered the Lox & Bagel on a Whole Wheat Oat Bran Bagel with a low fat herb spread that I politely asked be spread on only one side of the bagel.
Derek ordered an Everything bagel with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese spread. The combination reminded me of French Toast. Yum!
I really enjoyed my bagel sandwich, but am a little unsure of why the place is so popular. I was really hoping for some sort of bagel & egg sandwich but they don’t offer that selection. They offered the egg on an english muffin, but it was pre made and I really wanted a bagel. Oh well.
The fresh produce was really top notch so early at the farmer’s market.
I came home withe a bag full of goodies, I can’t wait to experiment with.
Peach Crisp anyone? 😉
We are currently driving to my parent’s house to spend the day at the beach! I am ready for some fun in the sun!! 🙂
