Hello from Myrtle Beach!!
Yes, it’s touristy and Yes, there’s nothing but hotels everywhere you turn, but that doesn’t stop the water from being pretty.
I <3 the beach!
Before my flight this afternoon I had just enough time to throw together some left overs from last night’s dinner to make a very tasty meal for lunch.
I layered raw kale, roasted acorn squash, and bean & corn salsa in a flat bowl then microwaved the combination for 2 minutes. I finished it off with some blue cheese.
I know I said yesterday that blue cheese makes everything taste better, well I lied. Turns out salsa AND blue cheese makes everything better. 😉
I officially joined the frequent flier program at my favorite parking lot near the airport. They were able to retro-actively add the last two times I parked there to my card and it turns out I’ll earn two free days of parking next week. I also earned a parking spot up front. Score!
I also got a window seat on the plane. 🙂
And had some chips.
Not sure why these are labeled sweet potato. They taste like regular tortilla chips to me.
I had a 30 minute lay over in Charlotte, which gave me just enough time to stop here.
And got this. 😉
It felt strange to be so close to all my lovely Charlotte friends, yet so far. I waved to each and everyone from the plane though. Hi Friends!
I landed safely in Myrtle Beach just after 5:00, dropped my stuff off at the hotel, and had just enough time to put my feet in the water before I was ready for dinner.
I walked to a hole in the wall seafood joint down the street from my hotel and ordered the blackened fish of the day with mixed veggies, hush puppies and coleslaw.
It was spicy! 🙂
I’m zonked! Time for some Glee and sleep.
I’m going to try and go for my first post-marathon run tomorrow. My legs feel great and I can’t resist running along the beach. I plan to keep it short (3-4 miles) and will listen to my legs. If they need to stop, then I’ll stop. No need to push it!
Oh, one more thing!
