I was not having a good night on Saturday. I mixed up my long and short run days and I knew I’d have to squeeze a 14K run in on Sunday on top of being in the kitchen all day (that’s 8.69 miles for the non-metric folks). Throw in the possibility of rain and I began channeling my inner Eeyore.
Fast forward to Sunday morning: it’s grey and cloudy out and I’m still in a funk – I sit down my computer with my coffee and check my email and there’s one from Foodbuzz. For those of you who don’t know, Foodbuzz is a community of food bloggers. I look closely at the subject line and it says “Congratulations: You Made the Foodbuzz Top 9!” Huh? That can’t be right. So I click on the link in the email and sure enough, there I am on the top 9. OMG! That was unexpected and turned my day right around! I was ecstatic because I’m relatively new to the blogging community and still figuring things out. The post that got me on there was my strawberry basil scone recipe. If you haven’t seen my recipe, go check it out!
What are some of the things that help to cheer you up when you’re feeling down?
