Rainy River Run

Last night Michael and I had dinner in downtown Morgantown at a cute, local place called The Golden Finch. The restaurant was quaint and had a really cozy atmosphere that we both loved. We wined and dined on a shrimp and grits appetizer alongside a bruschetta burger that was served on the most delicious ciabatta bread. We also shared a tomato and mozzarella salad that was great!

Golden Finch!

The alarm rang at 7 and I snoozed until 8 until we finally both got up and headed out for a run along the Monongahela river. I had all my of my gear on including my Garmin, my Spibelt, my ipod and my amphipod water bottle. Each of these items serves a purpose and I felt like I needed them with me today. Michael thought all of my gadgets were overkill and looked at me and said, “Morgan, were not going to the moon.” Just call me space cadet!

One minute into the run, it started to rain. The rain came down harder and harder as we pushed on. While I wasn’t hot, I didn’t find this particularly soothing and now I feel like I’m going to have swimmer’s ear. All of my gear tested great for being waterproof, so at least that was a plus!

3 miles later and we were home. Our shoes were now filled with water and I looked like a drowned rat. I made us whole wheat bagel thins with white chocolate wonderful peanut butter. We also shared an apple.

We are relaxing for now watching Shark Week and Man vs. Food….then its off to run some errands! Have a great  day!

    If you were running with Michael, you had to double your speed to keep up with his stride! Ha. Sounds like you’re enjoying the trip.

    We tried a new sushi/grill last night that was good — called Sole. Our appetizer was vodka-soaked martini olives fried in tempura batter. Sounds strange, but tasted good. A few of them went a long way — after a while you felt like you were licking a salt block.
