My Jumbotron Hero

Yesterday was a beautiful day at Kauffman stadium.

The parking lots were full of excited fans (beer x 2 = 8).

Empty seats were few and far between (peanuts 10).

And the jumbotron camera man had a little crush on my husband.

Dan's mug made it on the big screen three times, and with almost 40,000 fans in attendance, I find it pretty impressive.

It could have been his dance moves.

Or his unshaven face.

But I am pretty sure it was the hat.   Oh the hat.  

We had a great time, and the Royals ended up scoring 3 runs in the 8th inning to win the game.  Yay!

This was the first time that I have left Ina other than to go to work, on a run, or to the grocery store.  It felt very weird to be away from her.  It was also a little freeing to know that I could relax and that someone I trust very much is keeping her safe and sound.  

Other Eats

Breakfast - strawberry banana overnight oats

Lunch - salmon salad with FF mayo and mustard on a sandwich thin, green beans, sweet potato

Dinner - I was pretty full from the peanuts at the game, so I came home and had a piece of left over grilled pork tenderloin and a glass of milk.  


Yesterday morning I ran.  Outside.  By myself.  It was glorious.

This is something that may not happen again for years to come, so I thought I would celebrate how all the stars were aligned.  Dan had the day off from work, so I didn't have to worry about geting home at any time.  Ina slept until 4, woke up and ate, and then drifted peacefully back to sleep. 

I went downstairs to my faithful treadmill, but my iPad wasn't working.  So, oh a whim, I stepped outside and breathed in the fresh damp morning air.  

I didn't have to plan for my run. I didn't even know what route I was going to take.  I just ran.  This was something I used to do all the time, and never ever appreciated it.  You better believe that I truly felt every single step I took for 3.6 miles.  

Points Breakdown

Earned 9.  Used 18.  37 remaining.

    ~ Love that your quote today went along with baseball to tie in to the rest of your post. ;-)

    1. Thanks Carrie! I had broiled some salmon the night before. I just added some FF mayo and mustard to it and stirred. The FF mayo is "eh" so next time I might try some plain Greek yogurt or add some pickles. :)
