Windy Running Night & I Ran Over My Foot

After work, last night, I finally had some free time to go run, outside!! It was about 88 and sunny. But, the windy was pretty crazy (but not as bad as yesterday). I ran my normal 5k route and walked a lap inside the park that I have never actually walked before. I think that's crazy. I've been to this park a million times and have never been on this path. It was nice and peaceful. There were other people out getting their sweat on, so it was such a nice way to end my night. 

In the picture below, I'm trying to show you my "wings". Wings are the little baby hairs on the side that won't lay flat (I don't use any hair product, so that's why). The wings were trying to make me fly, all day (even at work). Also, do you see that vein on the side of my head. It always pops when I workout. 

I guess my ankle got in the way of my running last night. I think I ran it over while being so speedy. It doesn't even hurt. I noticed it after I took my shoes and socks off. 

After dinner, we had strawberry shortcake for dessert, I made everything from scratch. We just bought the strawberries and I wanted to use the rest of them before they went bad. I made the cake (but it didn't taste right, so I'm not going to post the recipe). And I whipped up the whip cream in a jiffy. I put it all together and this is what happened. it tasted pretty good, despite the cake part. 

Besides your hands and feet, do you have any veins that pop whenever you workout? Have you ever ran over one of your own feet (please tell me I'm not too crazy)? Do you have a good recipe for the cake part of the strawberry shortcake?

Food Truck Festival AKA Food Coma

Last weekend, Jason and I went to a food truck festival about 20 minutes away from our house. It's pretty cool of what turn into a food truck. My brother loves old VW buses (so I sent him this picture). This guy turned his old bus into a waffle truck (we didn't eat there, though). 

We ate here first. 3 tacos for $5. Of course I wanted to try it. Too bad the tacos were pretty small and left Jason hungry. They tasted pretty good, though.

There were so many people there! They said it was there record event (this was the 6th one of these, but 1st I've ever gone to). People were everywhere.

We had fun. We love to people watch. There was a lot of that to do there. So many characters. 

After we finished eating the tacos in the park across the street, we came back to one more line. This place has crazy names and ideas for burgers. They put Doritos inside their burgers (or something like that). 

One bad thing about food trucks is you can stand in line for half an hour and and when you're the 6th person, they yell out that they only have 5 burgers left. Yep that happened to us.Very sad. 

Since it was hot and we were still hungry, the next best thing to burgers was ice cream! There wasn't anything special about the ice cream, but it was cold and it tasted good. 

We walked across the street and walked around the pond while we finished the ice cream, then headed back home. We spent about 3 hours there. The lines were long, but the food was good. We'll go again next time, but we'll get there before 1 pm. 

Do you have anything like this near you? Are food trucks big near you? They are here!
