National Peace Officer Memorial Run-Day 2

After Day 1-running 40KM, I thought I would be sore on the morning of Day 2, but I woke up feeling great and excited to run! I was the most excited about this day of running because I would be running through areas that I grew up in. Plus my Mom would be joining me for a couple KM through Kingston!

My only “issue” would appear to be not drinking enough on Day 1 + Taking salt pills= One puffy face!

Soooooo annoying……So I found this hand held stainless steel water bottle from lulu lemon a couple years ago and have been using it ever since but,  It only holds about 600ML of liquid…..

Tomato Chutney

The Garden has been like a Tomato factory this Summer! I grew about 7 different varieties this year and we have been loving eating them fresh off the vine! Most of our friends and family that live near us all have Gardens as well so giving the extras away isn’t as easy as you would think!

blah

Yeah yeah
