Remember when I said something big was coming up this weekend? Well, I’ll give you a hint.
That’s right—I’m running a 10 mile race (a term which I use very loosely) in the morning.
My first ever double-digit run.
Jen and I decided a while back we wanted to do the Red Nose Run, then we changed our minds, and then back again. I didn’t think I’d be doing it until earlier this week, and now…here I am. I’m absolutely terrified, but excited, too—watch out, 2011! I’m coming for ya!
BUT first things first.
I knew I wanted to make something good for dinner tonight, something that would stick with me but not in a bad way. And I wanted veggies. I picked up a three-pack of bell peppers earlier this week that I was dying to use. So I decided to go with an old cliche: pasta before race day.
Perfect! It was light, fresh, and delicious.
Oh, and I had another special treat.
No reflection on my skillz, methinks.
Draft beer? At home? All the time?
Wish me luck in the morning!
