Run, Glorious RUN!

in All Posts

Hello! So, it looks like from the Questionnaire results that most of you use running as an opportunity to mentally process life events and create lists of things you have to do.  Others like to simply zone out.  A surprising number of you also reuse socks!…  A few of you find this completely disgusting.  :)  


Speaking of running, I had a very joyful run this evening that put me in an absolutely fantastic mood!  I ran 5.0 miles in 45 minutes and burned approximately 400 calories


Here are my eats for the afternoon and evening…


I ate homemade hummus and carrots for a snack around 2:00 PM.


And a handful of almonds around 4 PM…


Post-run, I drank a glass of milk to hold me over. 


Husband wanted to drive to BURGER KING and get himself a "naughty" dinner.  He got three Jr. Whoppers and a large fry!  I settled for a Crap Free dinner in.


I made brown rice with grilled chicken and sugar peas.  It was a pretty yummy dinner.


We spent the evening teaching James to jump over a bar (the agility course at the Dog Park is next)!


Sometimes, he tried to go under….


But in general, he was pretty good! 🙂


Goodnight! Sleep tight. 🙂

    Oh my, James looks absolutely ADORABLE and talented! How cute–it makes me miss my pup. I always enjoy seeing your doggy photos.

    Great run and love the meals…burger king wouldn’t have really fit into the crap-free category, would it? nice choice 🙂

  • just me February 11, 2009, 6:51 pm

    hahaha…james is so cute!

    love the man’s meal…sounds like something my brothers or boss would eat. yuck. haha

  • Erica February 11, 2009, 6:53 pm

    hahahhaha I love James. What a talented pup!Glad you got a great run and CF dinner in! Husbands can push us to be naughty and it is hard to resist!

  • talesofexpansion February 11, 2009, 7:18 pm

    awwww, james and the bar!

    i’d pick your dinner over a whopper any day!

  • Alexia February 11, 2009, 7:36 pm

    HAHAHA! That’s so cute teaching James to do agility. My in-laws are actually famous in that sport and both have been on the world team. It’s pretty cool but a lot of people don’t know what agility is.

    Dinner looks delish and crap free. 😉

  • greendogwine February 11, 2009, 7:48 pm

    LOL – that is too funny – it’s totally something Mike and I would spend our night doing! Glad to hear there are other dog people out there like us! 🙂

  • Olga February 11, 2009, 8:15 pm

    hahaha your doggie’s so funny!

    I can’t even remember the last time I stepped into a fast food place!

  • Jen February 11, 2009, 8:17 pm

    Yay for adorable pet pictures! And way to go for keeping it crap-free.

  • livelaughlyss February 11, 2009, 8:23 pm

    hahaha three whoppers? man, the hubs is certainly not showing empathy for crap free week, now is he?!

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina February 11, 2009, 8:31 pm

    you count out your almonds too! a perfect 15!!!!

    right?!?!?! or did you just happen to get such a fab number? I love counting out my almonds, i feel like 15 almonds is the perfect serving size!

  • Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) February 11, 2009, 9:39 pm

    Lovely Whopper free dinner Caitlin. 🙂

    Go James!

  • Mica February 11, 2009, 9:55 pm

    Three whoppers? I hate guys and their metabolisms!

    I notice that you did not teach Maggie this trick….

  • Elizabeth (thelongweigh) February 11, 2009, 11:30 pm

    That is so impressive that you were able to eat such a healthy delicious dinner and resist BK! Your dinner looks delicious and your dog has mad skills!

  • Sarah (lovINmytummy) February 11, 2009, 11:56 pm

    That’s not a bar…that’s a Swiffer. He’s going to be confused as hell when you mop. What is it with you and Andrea torturing your dogs?! 😉

  • Thinspired February 12, 2009, 2:15 am

    Every time you post a run I want to say how awesome it is and how much you inspire me…but then I would be writing that almost every post! 😉
    Way to go 🙂
