How crazy was the Boston Marathon today?? I couldn’t watch at work, but I was following updates and wow! Who knew running could be such a nail biter! Reading about it has fully amped up my running bug. I really have no plans to BQ (Boston Qualify), but a little part of me would LOVE to run that race.
Fun Fact: Mutai (and really about 19 of the top finishers) finished a FULL marathon in about the time it takes me to run a HALF marathon. Damn they’re speedy. (4:25 pace!!!)
The rest of the work day was dull in comparison — so much so that I drank a Diet Rock Star @ 3:30. Ummm that was dumb. Thanks for enabling me Carol I hope I get to sleep before 2:30am tonight!
Because of yesterday’s shopping spree, the weekly grocery trip was postponed until tonight. I DID get everything though AND spent less than usual. Boo-yah!!
This is what’s on the table this week (and by table, I mean what we are eating in front of the TV):
- Mac ‘n Cheese – B’s request. Does it help that it’s organic? Hmmm probably not.
- Mandarin Orange/Cranberry Chicken Salad
- Fish Tacos
- Poppyseed Chicken (<—and old college favorite!! I still make it Martha!)
- Beef Stew
- Tortellini Soup
I’m feeling like I’m in a bit of a rut with my menu…I need to do some branching out next week for sure. Send me your recipes!!
And since it woulnd’t be Monday without pictures of my kids…here ya go
Did you watch/follow the Boston Marathon today? Do you want to run it? or even just watch it ?? I would love to hang out in the crowd!!
