* My marathon training is going well. If I keep it up, I think a 8:00-8:15 pace will be doable. A lot will depend on temperature and health the day of the race. Last week, I ran 14 miles with an average of 8:34 and felt pretty good. My long run this week will be tomorrow afternoon- wish me luck. The plan calls for 16 miles.
|Friday dinner deliciousness!|
* This past weekend was a lot of fun. Friday night featured a birthday dinner for my friend. Saturday night featured a great concert with Joshua Bell that I attended with my parents. Today, I rode on a Vespa and got a pedicure. Yeah! What a great weekend!
|Fries with three smears- yum!|
* Next weekend, I’m off to Austin. I cannot wait for BBQ, beer and music. Any Austin suggestions are welcome!
*Recent purchases: How cute are these Forever stamps? I also like the funnies implied by the animal order and which animals are opposite the other: mouse vs snake, tortoise vs hare, goldfish vs. cat!
* I’ve been cooking more. Above are mandoline’d zucchini and peppers for noodle-less pad thai. It ended up more like a moo-shoo since the veggies were pretty soggy. It was delicious though. I’ve also made a West African Cashew (instead of peanut) soup, an egg and brussel sprout frittata, and a Crockpot pork loin. I eat the same meal several times in a row but it’s cheaper than ordering meal delivery online.
