Good Bread is Good for You

pics of fresh breads in a bakery in Vienna Austria by Arun Shanbhag
Display of breads in a tiny bakery in Vienna – steps from our friend's house. The bakery carried a large variety of multi-grain breads and everything was “organic.” The front counter displayed an assortment of dessert rolls, croissants, tarts, pastries and other savories. We'd nibble on an almond- or walnut-filled croissant and sip their superlative melange (espresso with hot milk!). Soon this became a routine. What’s not to love!

In other news: I am in the thick of my training for the Chicago Marathon. As you may remember from my Boston Experience, I have three more weeks to get in my long runs of 18-20 miles. Then the taper starts till the actual marathon on Oct 22. Ran 17 miles this evening. Yes, I am icing my knees as I type.
