Can I just say I am so impressed with the bloggers out there who come up with creative post titles!?! I had a major block today, as I do most days.
My legs were dragging a little bit yesterday, so after procrastinating for about an hour and a half, I finally headed to the gym at 7:15pm.
- Mile 1 - 6.0 speed
- Mile 2 - 6.2 speed
- Mile 3 - 6.4 speed
- Mile 4 - 6.0 speed
Here is how I did it:
- Saute 1 clove garlic (minced), 1/2 small onion (chopped), and heaping handful of baby spinach with a dash of EVOO.
- Cook over medium heat until the onion is tender and the spinach is wilted. Let cool.
- Mix spinach mixture with ground turkey.
- Go wild with spices. I threw in a few dashes of sea salt, black pepper blend, Worcestershire, red pepper, and egg whites. I also threw in about 1/4 cup of blue cheese crumbles.
- Shape away. I went with the normal "burger" shape.
I had signed up for the Club Challenge 10-miler this Sunday. This is where all the running clubs in Maryland compete in a 10-mile race. It will be a pretty competitive bunch on a challenging course, with a lot of fast times. I'll admit that I was nervous, but I was committed to doing it and told myself I wouldn't bail last minute.
That changed when I found out Kevin's Award Dinner is the Saturday night before the race. This award dinner is special because this year - Kevin is going to be receiving a pretty big award. It is a Black Tie function in some swanky club on the top floor of the Legg Mason building that stands prominently in the Baltimore skyline. He is renting a tux and I bought a new dress. We want to relax and enjoy it! and drink as much wine as we want!
So, that was my long-winded way of saying I am not running the race on Sunday. But, I will be running 8-9 miles Saturday morning to make up for bailing on the race.
Thought you might like to check out my dress for Saturday night. A Black-Strapless-Number.
I have a hard time buying any dress that isn't black. White House/Black Market is my go-to store for dresses.
While I was in my room taking a picture of the dress, I snapped this photo:
My board with (most of) my race bibs. I would love to do some sort of collage with all of these and have it framed. So, I am curious for all of you runners or racers of any kind - what do you do with your race bibs? Throw them out? Save them? If you save them, where do you put them?
