Food / Move / Running

Final Countdown

It occurred to me while I was running this morning that we are now less than 30 days from the big move!  Less than 30 days people!  And only 2 1/2 weeks until a real bed.  *sigh*

It also occurred to me that I haven’t been running as much as I should…especially considering I’m running a 1/2 marathon this Saturday.  It’s the Monster Mash Marathon and Half Marathon starting at the Monster Mile!  Should be interesting.  It’s the first time someone is actually running with me.  I’m normally a loner.  I just hope he doesn’t leave me in the dust from his shoes.  Especially after todays run…I was huffin’ and puffin’ like a 2-pack a-day smoker by the time I was done.  Just couldn’t get my breathing right.  I hate it when that happens.  It was a beautiful day for a run though!

What should be even more interesting is the fact that I have to pick up my race packet at the casino.  🙂  We’ve never been to it even though we’ve been here for a bit.  Eh, I’m not much of a gambler…I prefer the safe bet of shopping!  A definite way to ensure my $20 (or however much one might spend) will net me a return of shoes, clothes, etc.  However, I have heard there are some great places to eat there.  May have to check one of those out.  I’m running 13.1 miles…I deserve it!

Speaking of food…I’ve been a busy little baking beaver today.  Tried out a few new recipes.  I’m excited to try them…hoping they taste as good as they smell.  Here’s one that I did for our dinner tonight.  Simple Shredded Chicken…a base for so many dinners!  We made it simple with some chicken and cheese quesadillas.  I snarffed mine with some salsa.  I would’ve loved some guac but my avocado isn’t quite ripe.

When you get your bake on do you go a little overboard like me?  Busy Baking Beaver style?
