Regarding Why chains suck (Jenny Coon Peterson, June 15, Gazette), I havent quite broken the habit of eating at chain restaurants, but Im getting close. The trouble lies when my buddies from EdmondRunWalk.org and I are finished with our Sunday morning excursion.
No local coffee and bagel places are open at 7 a.m. We like to nosh at a community eatery with other runners, walkers, cyclists and neighbors, but we cant find anything that caters to us healthy athletes. Java Daves and Old School Bagel Cafe are the only two locals around. Unfortunately, one is closed on Sundays and the other has limited hours and is not open when we finish runwalking around Mitch Park. Whats a runwalker vegan in Edmond to do?
