Weekend is coming. I am in a self imposed quarantine. I had my food delivered to me by Amazon. It was a bit pricy. It was my first time using it (Amazon Fresh). I believe they over package – I ended with 10 bags or so. I ordered typically what I get from the local stores and usually it is like 3-4 bags. Usually I pay about $35. Online ordering, I didn’t get any discount so it ended up about 50% more expensive. I did ordered meat so those are a bit pricey. I know, because everything is organic, so those costed me more. I think Amazon is targeting the rich millenials. I got to suck it up for another week and then I will be free.
Their packaging – They used a lot of bags. My icecream came in its separate bag, with foam wraped. Double and tripple wrapped. They had cardboard/paper surrounding on the outside and sealed that in another layer of bag. Good thing is it was still cold when I unwrapped everything. They made sure the icecream didn’t melt in the 90 degree heat. I laughed. It was like a mini fridge.
My mom also brought food over. I told her I was not supposed to see her… but she thought I had nothing to eat. What can you say. The one who shouldn’t be running around should be her.
Unrelated, I signed up a virtual race in PA. I will do it immediately once I end my quarantine. It will be at Camp Anderson. I have never been there. But a fellow runner I met on my last trip to PA recommended it. He is doing it too, though I don’t know which day he is running it. I am choosing July 25 to head up. We are given free camping. I haven’t decided to camp first then run or run first then camp.
It will be an endurance run. I chose 6 hrs. You run as many loops (2 mile) as you can within the time limit. So I hope to do a marathon 13-14 loops. The loop is a bit less than 2 mile.
that’s all. Happy weekend.
