Happy + Hale

Ron joined Galloway with me and we had a great 8 miler on the Black Creek Greenway.  We ran with the 12:30 pace group and they did 1.5 minute of running and 1 minute of walking.  It was “Just Right” which happens to be the group’s name.  The course was very hilly but when we made it to the 4 mile mark, we got to see this pretty view of Crabtree Lake. 10450047_839349916077528_8642070104883620688_o The humidity was down and the temperature was perfect for running.  For the 5th of July in Raleigh, North Carolina, we were very lucky indeed. After the run, Ron wanted to check out a new juice bar that our friend Dan had told him about. We set off to downtown Raleigh in search of Happy + Hale. IMG_1437 Ron was in heaven! This business was started by 2 NCSU students who began by peddling juice off a bicycle.  Click here for a very good article of how their business was born.    They sell salads, smoothies, and cold pressed juice.  IMG_1434 IMG_1435

We both got smoothies.  Mine was City of Oats and Ron’s was Green No Envy.


City of Oats had strawberry, banana, steel cut oats, peanut butter, almond milk, cinnamon, and dates. Green No Envy had coconut water, spinach, mango, avocado, ginger root, pressed lemon juice. City was delicious but Green will only be loved if you are a true connoisseur of juice like Ron. Downtown Raleigh is such a pretty place to me.  We had a very nice time walking around.

Here’s to you and wishing joy and health always!
