Rainy, Running Saturday

When my alarm went off this morning, I wasn't wanting to get up. But, I knew that I was having some bad food (more beer than normal), so I needed to get my run in. I forced myself to get up and get moving.

Heading to the gym (it is pouring rain here right now and all weekend), I was still half asleep. I got on the tm anyways and knocked out 6 miles and felt great afterwards. I'm so glad I made myself go. I always feel great after my runs (bad or good).

After my run, I met a good friend for coffee. A couple hours flew by and we caught up. I needed to get some of my errands done early because we're having friends over for dinner tonight.

When I got home, I was hungry, again (way too normal), so I snacked on an apple with some Fat Toad Farm Carmel. It tasted so good (don't worry, I didn't even eat 1/2 that caramel) I wanted to eat the entire jar. They make the caramel with goats' milk. So good...

I've been prepping things for tonight's dinner. We're having our friends over and I like to get things ready (as much as possible), so I can spend more time with our guests. So far, I've cut up things for the salad (cucumbers, peppers, green onions, hard boiled eggs and black olives) and I've cut toppings for our chili (onions, shredded cheese and sour cream). It's time to go get some normal "company" clothes on (non-sporty) and get some sort of make-up on.

I hope everyone has a great Saturday night and gets lots of sleep. Good luck to everyone racing this weekend!


  1. Hope you had a good visit with your friends! I always prep as much as possible in advance as well.
