Six miles to start the day.My heart breaks a little when I see all the Christmas trees piling up in the alleys. Ours is still standing tall, at least until the new year!I was out there with my friend Lizzie this morning. She’s a speedster and kept the pace nice and fast. Even though I was a bit short of breath, we had a lovely chat as the sun rose.Peace.One more cool thing from our long weekend: a trip to Chattanooga! I hadn’t been there since Anthony and I ran across this bridge (and more!) during the Four Bridges Half Marathon a few months ago. This trip wasn’t for a run, though — it was for an underwater swim! (not really)
We visited the 400,000-gallon tanks of the Tennessee Aquarium. So many cool fish and a few freaky sharks.Our nephews and niece loved it — and I’m counting my seven sprints up and down the exhibit levels as a second workout! My favorite part of the experience was the freshwater tank full of crazy creatures from the Tennessee River.
Anthony’s fam, minus his mom who stayed back to make cookies with my mom . Notice that sign in the top left corner about not lifting children?We clearly didn’t.And what better way to end a post than with a big slice of cake. A stop at the famous City Cafe was in order! This diner has the biggest slices of cake you’ll ever see.And on a random note, Southwest Airlines’ customer care line has the longest wait time you’ll ever experience. I’ve been listening to elevator music the whole time I wrote this post and am still on hold after 40 minutes. Let’s see if I can break ONE HOUR!
- Worst company for call-in customer service? (Comcast is still my least favorite, but Southwest is getting close!)
- If you had to eat an ENTIRE cake, what type of cake would you eat? (Like the scene in Matilda)
- When’s the right time for taking down Christmas decorations?
