I packed the day full of activities including taking a quiz, picking up supplies for Tuesday’s Title IX Summit (and visiting my classmate at her office!), getting some work done, getting a workout in, and doing more work, all by 3:00 pm. I left work to go to Girls on the Run practice, and I was wiped out when I made it home at 5:30, so I had a snack and took a two hour (!!) nap before dinner.
Our friend Alex, an LSU alumnus, is in town for the weekend from Memphis, and he recommended grabbing dinner at The Chimes near campus. Everything about the meal was delicious, but my favorite was definitely the crab fingers (claws) sautéed and swimming in a delicious pool of butter. I can’t complain about the fried pickles or the BBQ shrimp and grits, either, though. Food like this is one reason why I keep running. I don’t know if any number of miles can make up for the sinful meal I just ate, but at least I don’t eat that kind of stuff every day.
The weekend promises to be a good one, as I have scheduled running dates on Saturday and Sunday, and we are going to the LSU/LA Tech game tomorrow. Of course I’ll do a little studying, too. Then, it’ll be time for another week! Time is flying.
Something that made today great: $5 Friday at Smoothie King! I hadn’t been to a Smoothie King since 2016 before today.
Time I woke up: 7:25 am
