Why, hello there! Sorry for the afternoon disappearing act. I got sucked into a work vortex of productiveness.
Prior to the work vortex, I got sucked into a running vortex of doom.
Actually, it wasn’t total doom because I got to run with Jen!
My normal running buddy – Nicole – needed to do her long run on Monday, but I was still recovering from my triathlons this weekend, so I was stuck doing 10 miles alone. I was scared.
But Jen came to my rescue with an offer to run 7 or 8 with me! I was so happy that I nearly squeezed her to death when she arrived at our house.
Unfortunately – it was a sucky run. It was very, very warm out, and I had just eaten a handful of fiberific crackers, so my tummy was hurting the entire time. Stupid decision to go for the crackers, I know. And I was chugging Gatorade because it was hot and I was gunning for 10. The Gatorade tasted like syrup. Couldn’t choke it down.
Also, I just wasn’t feeling the run. You know how it is… once you ‘decide’ it’s going to be a sucky run, it’s hard to go back. So I just ran 7 with Jen and called it a day. Honestly… I’ll take it. It was ROUGH. I couldn’t have pulled another 3 out.
Dinner was grand!
I mixed some kidney beans, pinto beans, and chickpeas together, tossed in some raw shredded collard greens, and threw in a handful of shredded cheddar cheese…
And baked two delicious enchiladas. With a big dollop of Holy Deliciousness Hummus on the side.
Friends, I leave you with this photograph of Maggie, looking all sorts of ridiculousness and neediness.
She’s a beaut!
