This morning started with 2 large go-juices, and a good filling breakfast.
We brewed a new coffee this morning, Brew la la Coffee's Organic Vanilla Nut Roast. It smells AMAZING while brewing, and was just as delicious in the cup.
run. The weather today is actually much warmer than it has been all week,
so Rob and I headed out to Belle Isle to explore and get an outdoor run in. (I think this is our first outdoor run since the beginning of December, d'oh!)
Just recently the state took over Belle Isle, which had been previously owned and operated by the city of Detroit. I have mixed emotions about this, while it will be nice to have everything fixed-up so that more people can enjoy the island, right now it feels like my own personal playground. Total we might have run into 3? 4? people today. Nothing much is open on the island other than the conservatory and aquarium, and everything is pretty much open to explore on your own.
To put it into perspective, Belle Isle (was) the largest city owned park in the nation, larger even than New York City's Central Park. During the winter months, it does not see much action, other than those looking to run, bike, or members of the DYC. But, during the summer it is packed with fishers. picnickers, and the occasional large event (think music festivals, Indy races etc.) So to be out there alone, being able to go 8 straight miles without hardly seeing a soul is a very freeing feeling.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
