This just in: I RAN SEVEN MILES TONIGHT!
You heard me.
I’m so excited for a few reasons. I’ve only run this distance once, and it’s been a while. Also, I’ve not been running as regularly as I should be, and I wasn’t sure I could do it. But I can, and I did! It was drizzly rain the first half of the run, and we had to fight some traffic. I feel like I can firmly describe myself as both “badass” and “hardcore.”
Jen and I made the decision to tackle this run earlier this week, and I was actually looking forward to it. Towards the end of the day, though, I was getting really tired from being up early and having a long day at work. But I knew I didn’t want to let myself down.
After stopping off at ALDI to pick up a few things (including a fresh pineapple), I headed home to eat dinner, stretch, and relax. Jonathan and I are heading out of town on Saturday, and I’m hoping to take tonight and Friday to pack this up, clean up in the kitchen, and catch up on a few things.
Once I arrived back at the apartment, I got to work on dinner. This morning, I made a really tasty chicken parm pita-type thing with a Publix veggie chicken patty, red sauce, cheese and mushrooms. Verdict: really good! The ingredient list wasn’t the shortest, but there wasn’t much on there that caused a lot of alarm. I decided I would use the other half in my dinner. I give you…Barbecue Fake Chicken Pizza! Sweet, smoky, tangy, crunchy—everything I was looking for.
Also, I have to show you something….strange. I was watching my video post earlier this week, and I noticed two weird things. First, this:
And then there’s the recommended video that comes up after mine is through.
Happy Thursday!! Or, as a former co-worker used to say, Friday Junior!
