Sugar Rush!

I hope everyone’s weekends have been good so far! It is pretty much over since it is Sunday night; I am getting stuff ready for class tomorrow but first I wanted to share my Sunday with y’all. It was a good one 🙂 on both ends of the spectrum- healthy and nottt so healthy, hence the title.

This morning I drove a teammate and I to the alter g to meet our GA (grad assistant) at 10 am. I got in a 12 mile long run in 76 minutes. That is my usual Sunday routine when I am at school a have access to the alter g. After we finished running I stopped at Costco for gas- such a great price, and then headed back to school for rehab at 12 in the training room. Once I finished up there I went and lifted a little in the gym before going back to my room to shower, get ready for the day, and eat lunch.

At 3 pm I met another teammate at my car and we headed downtown to Champion Square (next to the Superdome) for the first ever KING CAKE FESTIVAL! I love king cake so I was so excited about this and it was crowded! Some of the lines were super long but so worth it. We were there for around 2 hours. I bought 3 different types and king cake and each were so good. My friend Kade tried 5 I think but he had just run before we left campus and was pretty hungry.

We left about an hour before it ended so we didn’t hear the winner (there was voting too) of the best king cake but I look forward to looking up who won! There was also live music, which made it really fun, and it benefitted Oshner Hospital.

So I had a really fun afternoon and enjoyed all of my cake! Now I am chugging down some water to help with the sugary ness of my mouth and need to hunker down on some work for school!

Anyone else love king cake/have a favorite kind/place for it?
