I finally received my bright purple Team in Training singlet! 🙂
I kind of debating whether I’m going to wear the singlet on race day, though. I’m obviously proud to be affiliated with TNT, but the shirt is big, and I think I might need warmer clothing for the marathon. But I’m still excited; the race is ALMOST here… It’s on January 10 – let the countdown begin!
This morning, I went to Blue Jacket Park to run 4.25 miles and meet up with my TNT coach for my shirt.
Ironically, about 0.5 mile into my run, I turned a corner and literally ran into a local 5K race! I decided to hop on into the race because it was going around the lake path that I was already planning to run. :) I ran in the back with the moms and strollers. And yes – I had to run right through the finish line and pose for post-race photographs. It was funny!

After my run, I snacked on some Gummi Bears that I found in our glovebox.
Infusion Tea is a really cute vegetarian restaurant with a HUGE wall of tea! I decided to order the Pesto Panini, which contained roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, eggplant, spinach, tomato, and fresh basil pesto on thick ciabatta bread.
This sandwich was so delicious. I must remake it at home! I tried to finish it all, but couldn’t!
Plus, a lovely pickled edamame and chickpea side salad:
Since I was at a tea house, I made sure to order hot tea! I chose the Candy Cane flavor. It came with a little timer so I knew how long to steep my tea for. Perfect!
Which do you prefer – coffee or tea? I’m a coffee girl, but I love a good cup of tea, especially mid-day.
