Running the Greenbelt

I have lived in the Boise area forever. In that forever time I have never ran on the Greenbelt. I have walked and biked from one end to the next but I have never run, jogged, or in my case, slogged.
I always feel that I am too dang heavy to do any running in public. Today I figured I might as well get my fear in the open and just slog the 'belt. Plus, it was going to be just as hot inside ghetto renew as it would be outside.

I slogged from the Firefighter Memorial to Willow Lane, filled up my water bottle, which fit perfectly inside a pocket of a pair of Adidas yoga  capris that I have had for a few years now. I will be really sad when they get a hole or the side zipper breaks, then I headed back. I did ok on the 1st mile. My knee didn't bother me, which it has for the past month because of switching to a new pair of shoes. The ball of the left foot was getting sore and my left quad was cramping at the last 1.5 mile. But I feel ok. Drove home and drank some Gatorade that has been sitting in the fridge unopened for over a month. More water and now got my 2XU socks on sitting in front of a fan. 1/2 hour I have to rest before I have to get ready for work. Ugh. Dinner may consist of a Carl's Jr. salad just in case I can't get around to making my own dinner in an hour.

My slog- 4 miles-59 minutes.

What do you eat when you just don't have time to cook or don't have time to go to the store?
