A Soda Fountain for Adults

by Meghann on September 30, 2011

Tonight I fell in love with a bar.

It had me at ‘Pour Your Own Beer’

What can I say? I’m easy to please. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The setup was pretty nifty. Above each set of taps was an Ipad that marked the labeled beers.

You were handed a card (that was attached to your credit card) to scan via the screen of the beer you want.

The screen counts down thirty seconds to pour as much beer as you want. The trick is you pay by the ounce.

The second trick is not overflowing the cup. Fail. Pouring from a tap is a lot harder than it looks!

So, I only ended up with half a beer, but – darn it – I earned that half!

Of course, that’s when I saw the second sign.

Doh!

Rob had better luck. I should have made him go first. Stupid sign.

I was at The Pub tonight for Happy Hour with Derek and his co-workers. We all had a good laugh over self poured beers and cheering the Rays onto another victory. A fun night out. ๐Ÿ™‚

I skipped food at The Pub in favor for a lighter meal at the smoothie stand next door.

I ordered the hummus and tuna salad platter which was served with veggies, fresh fruit, and pita wedges.

The tuna was… different. It was pretty dry and not very seasoned.

The tomato, cucumber, and pita wedges made excellent hummus dippers.

Earlier in the afternoon I had a piece of pumpkin bread.

And two pieces of dark chocolate for dessert.

I’m all tucked in tight and ready for bed.

Good Night!

Intervals

September 30, 2011

Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚ Friday mornings are the best run mornings. I think it’s the adrenaline rush of knowing that the weekend is almost here. I set out for 6 miles this morning then decided a mile in to turn it in to an interval run. I had a mile warm up followed by half mile more ยป

Cheated

September 29, 2011

There’s my bike stuff. Right where I left it. By the door. So I wouldn’t forget it.   Fail. All good plans start with the best intentions right? My plan was to work at Starbucks this afternoon (Happy National Coffee Day!), then meet my friend Allison for our weekly ride on a nearby trail. It wasn’t more ยป

What Comes After 70.3?

September 29, 2011

140.6! Duh! Just kidding. Sort of. As soon as I finished my first half marathon a couple of years ago, the first question out of everyone’s lips was “So, when you running that full?” I would always smile – not quite sure how to respond – and say “Not yet!” The same thing happened after more ยป

Jump Around

September 29, 2011

Good Morning. ๐Ÿ™‚ I did something this morning I haven’t done in a while – I had a mini living room bootcamp. I used to do these all the time, but training took over my life and pushed most other forms of exercise out (except for swimming, cycling, and running, of course ;)). It felt more ยป
