Tomorrow Iâ€™m running a 5K with my brother-in-law, Nick.
Nick is probably one of the most interesting, hysterical (seriously, a truly funny guy), thoughtful, and awesome people I ever know. Donâ€™t believe me that heâ€™s really just that great? Check out his 21st birthday recap. One of the funniest nights of my life!
So, Nick was suppose to do the Founderâ€™s Day 10K (race recap) with me back in November, but a week before the race, he tripped down the stairs and twisted his ankle. It was a really bad sprain and took months to heal properly.
Heâ€™s really excited to do a 5K with me tomorrow and has been training hard. I thought it would be an â€œeasyâ€ race for meâ€¦ I envisioned us doing a walk/run style, with me encouraging him to run more. Guess what? Nick has turned into a RUNNING BEAST and keeps sending me texts like, â€œ2.5 miles in 20:08â€ or â€œ3.0 miles in 24:00.â€ I kid you not.
There is a real possibility that Nickâ€™s first 5K will also mean a 5K PR for me, if I can keep up!
I made a great baked tempeh bowl:
- 1/3 block tempeh, marinated in maple syrup and baked
- Roasted broccoli
- Roasted parsnips
- Brown rice
- Sunflower seeds
The sweetness of the tempeh contrasted really nicely to the saltiness of the nuts!
With coffee ice cream and shredded coconut for dessert:
See you tomorrow morning for a RACE RECAP! And keep your fingers crossed for Nick! I think he has the running BUG now and I hope he enjoys himself. 🙂
