Sunday Funday Runday
8.6 miles conquered!!!
The feeling of personal improvement is a great one. If you told me a few months ago I could run 8 miles I’d have laughed 🙂
I was happy to see the gate was wide open and waiting for me at the park today. (Although truth be told it was definitely icier.) There was one whole section I had to avoid it was so slick- I just turned around and ran the other way then doubled back instead. I had quite a few close calls, but no major ice catastrophes!
I guess it’s about time I admit I’m not a fast runner anymore. It took me 86 minutes… so exactly 10 minute miles. I’ll take it though! 🙂
Post run lunch: black bean burger on a multigrain English muffin with spicy brown mustard and ketchup, and a side of Brussels sprouts. (Gotta have a good healthy lunch before all the game food I’m chow on later!)
Good thing I was paying attention to the microwave- the bag of Brussels sprouts almost exploded. It was probably pushing almost twice this size before I got the picture.
And of course I would have grabbed the most abnormally small English muffin out of the bag. It makes my burger look like it’s on steroids.
And now it’s party time!!! We have a couple friends coming over to watch the game. I personally use the word “watch” loosely.
Apparently our party’s dip themed. We have French onion dip, pizza dip, and two sausage and cheese dips (ugh I hate sausage). Plus meatballs, pigs in a blanket, and an assortment of pizzas. (You might be able to tell I didn’t do all the cooking….) Aaaand a keg and a half of Natty Greene’s beer. (The advantages of having the beer-brewer at your party). We DON’T have enough people to drink that much.
Are you watching the big game? Who are you rooting for?!
I’ll be cheering for the Saints solely because I’m from Baltimore where the Colts snuck out of in the middle of the night and all true Bawlmorians will forever hold it against them. And to annoy my husband. 😉
