Spring Break Day 3

I started this theme for the week, might as well keep going with it...

1. Woke up, watched Morning Joe with my coffee.

2. Had a smoothie for breakfast.

3. Read for two hours.

4. 9.25 mile run at Liberty Park. Planning a long run tomorrow on the roads so I'm sparing my legs.

5. Lunch at Fiddler's Elbow with Ann.
