Night Running

Sometimes I wish I was a "go with the flow" type gal... But I am NOT! I am a "stick to the plan no matter what" type gal.

HA! Going with the flow does NOT make me calm!

Normally I would make sure to get my run in as soon as I got off work (in the summer when it is hot I will get in my runs before work) - that way I can shower and have everything done by the time hubby gets home. Today I decided I would check with Ryan to see if he wanted to run with me. (He took last week off after the Star Wars Half Marathon so I thought running together might nudge him to get back into it.) To my surprise he jumped at the opportunity.

Ryan didn't get home until a little after 6:30pm (which is usually dinner time), so that meant we had to bust out the HEADLAMPS for our run (I guess it is good practice for the SoCal Ragnar in April :) ). I had 4 easy miles on the calendar, so even though Ryan originally only wanted to do 3 miles, I bargained and told him since I waited to run with him he needed to do the extra mile with me ;)

My Brooks jacket is AWESOMESAUCE!!
The pin stripes are reflective, so can be seen in the headlights of oncoming cars.

Thumbs up for NIGHT RUNS!

We still don't really get the selfies ;)

Not too shabby for a rainy, dark night!

I'm not sure if any of you saw the Chipotle campaign going on, but if you tried their Sofritas (their organic tofu option) TODAY, they would give you a free entree between tomorrow and the end of February. Ryan and I normally get the Sofritas, so figured why not get a free meal out of it and hit up Chipotle for dinner after our run.

Then we saw "THE SIGN" on our way in... THEY RAN OUT OF SOFRITAS! Thankfully while we were waiting in line they brought some from another store! They also tried to make it "right" by giving EVERYONE a free entree on their next visit even if they got meat, since it was their mistake. (PS I hear they ran out at other stores too... Bummer!)

Ryan was a little bummed that they caused such a demand for
"his" choice that they ran out... Thankfully they "found" more by the time we
made it to the front of the line!

I normally go with the salad route, while Ry sticks with the burrito.

Today was NOT a normal day, but sometimes it is good to step out of the routine and mix it up a bit - especially if it includes running with your hubby and ends with eating vegetarian burritos!

I'm with you. I am a TOTAL planner, and I HATE when things don't go exactly according to my schedule. Such is life, right? ;) I've always struggled with running at night -- it still kind of freaks me out a little bit, not gonna lie -- but usually when I run with my BF and we both have a headlamp and/or reflective vest it can actually be quite fun! Glad you had some fun and "mixed it up" a little bit! :)
