The in-laws also have an intense love of condiments. Their fridge is overflowing with jars of jam, dip, spreads, salsas…. it’s condiment heaven. Halfway through my meal, I poured some delicious lemon caper sauce over my Mahi-Mahi, which was a-ma-zing (but full of fat)! It was worth the extra calories.
And, of course, no feast is complete without dessert. There were two pies, and I couldn’t decide which one to sample–so I had small slices of both. Also–totally worth it. One was a cheesecake cherry pie, and the other was fresh strawberries in a glaze.
Tomorrow (August 31) is the Nike+ Human Race. This event will be the “ultimate runner experience.” By combining the digital running world with the physical, the Nike+ Human Race is open to anyone, anywhere. Nike is hosting 10k race events in 25 cities around the world, but by logging into nikeplus.com, every city and every road can become a race-day course.
If you don’t live in a race city, just sign up at nikeplus.com to participate and run in your city. Simply use Nike + iPod or Nike+ SportBand to track your miles on race day and then download miles on nikeplus.com to have your results officially counted as part of the race.
Now, I don’t have a Nike+ thingie for my iPod, so I can’t log my miles, but in the spirit of the event, I’ll be running a 10k tomorrow morning! I encourage everyone to get out there and run! Even if you can’t do a 10k, go for as long or as far as you can. Use Google Earth to plot your run, and let me know how you did!
Have fun! Sleep tight.
