Rest day today, which is perfect because it's been raining on and off all day. I decided to try something new today...a green smoothie! Lots of people in the blog world eat (drink?) them, and people in general seem to like them, so I figured I might as well give them a try. I like smoothies..after all, I did get a blender for my 16th birthday. (Thanks mom and dad!) Sooo I got some spinach, threw in a trusty banana, added some milk and ice cubes because that seemed like a good idea, and blended away. Here was the result:
It looks alright...and at first taste, I actually thought it was pretty good. I mostly tasted the banana, but about halfway through I couldn't bring myself to eat anymore! It seemed like I was chewing it more than drinking it, and I'm not a fan of the gritty-little-bits-of-stuff-in-my-mouth feeling. Maybe I needed to blend it more? Add more fruit for sweetness? Drink it through a straw? Any suggestions? I might just stick with the old fashioned way of getting my vegetables...eating them with a fork! We shall see.
Anyway, the other exciting news is that when I got home from work, there little babies were on my doorstep!
Yay! I'm so excited to try them out! Like I said previously, I'm currently on my fifth pair of Adrenaline 6, so it'll be fun to have a new color scheme on my shoes! I added in the picture of the side of the box because I like Brooks's "Run Happy" slogan. They certainly make me happy to run in! har har.
