I am a Winner!

And I am so excited about it!

I won the Road I.D. giveaway on Run From the Heart, today, and I am thrilled.  I have been looking at the various styles and colors and was getting ready to order one.  The timing couldn't have been more perfect for me.  Thanks, Tink, so much.

On the workout front, it was a quiet day.  I spent the morning grocery shopping in the city - that means 5 different stops.  But, I do love all of these shops and little markets, and I am crazy about shopping for fresh fruit and veggies, the most.

Today I bought Fiddleheads... now I need to find out what to do with them.  Have you ever had them?  And how did you prepare them?

And, after we got back on board I spent quite a lot of time washing and prepping all the freggies before they went into the fridge, and inventorying the rest of the groceries before they went into the lockers.

I finally got out for a walk to the library late this afternoon... only 35 minutes, but better than not going at all.

One more thing... thanks to all of you who replied to my post about needing advice about the long slow run pace.  I am very appreciative of the advice and the encouragement you have given me.

    The fiddleheads are actually edible ferns... before they uncurl and become leaves.
