Sometimes a Bloody Mary is Good

I did something I don’t normally do this morning at a DELICIOUS brunch with the boy



Egg white omelet with mushrooms, goat cheese and spinach.  With a side of toast and fruit.  DELISH by the way.

But back to the point. . .





I ordered a Bloody Mary.  It’s something that I don’t normally choose to do (drink at brunch)…but for whatever reason a bloody mary sounded good (read: relaxing), and a nice addition to a nice Saturday with the husband.

And you know what, it was.

Quick Question for everyone

As it has been pointed out to me by my BFF, Chocolate Medals fan, and running inspiration, it appears as though I am in a 4 mile rut.

Personally, I enjoy the distance because it’s enough to feel like I’m getting enough of a work out in, but doesn’t cash my legs and allows me to keep up with my “streak” mentality right now.  I do try and integrate second runs periodically — but I want everyone’s opinions?

Stick with 4 miles?  Or do SOME shorter runs, and some longer runs?

Now, if you’ll excuse me.  I am going to get back to my movie.

Something Borrowed :).


Upps, A Quiet Evening, and 4 miles

Good Morning and Happy Saturday 🙂

Is anyone else wondering where their Friday went?  It seems to have just disappeared for me?  But then again, that could be because of a major “upps” I had last night . . .


I reached my storage limit for pictures, so I’m going to have to expand that, excuse my old pictures for the time being 🙂


So, at 4 PM my intern at work came to me to check out for the day.  She seemed distracted and after a few minutes, started to freak out because she couldn’t find her car keys.

Sure enough, they were sitting on her car seat.  They must have fallen out as she was getting out of her car for lunch.  I felt awful for her, and hung out with her while she figured out how she was going to get her spare.

This is where the story gets good…about 10 minutes before IM ready to leave, I go to get my own keys, and could not find them.  15 minutes of panic later, I realized I had likely done THE SAME EXACT THING (or the keys were stolen, a whole nother issue).

So, my poor but amazing husband had to borrow a car at 515 and come up to bring the spare key for me.  Thankfully the keys had just fallen as I was getting out, but seriously…Upps.  Fun way to start our Friday 🙂

So . . . by the time Zach and I got home, it was well after 6PM and we were ready to relax.  We dominated some crackers, stew he had made in the crockpot, and beer/wine until we were ready for sleep (way too early…).

(I’ll be back later with current pictures, once again, the storage issue…but these are pretty accurate 😉

I guess that’s one way to make your Friday dissapear!

This Morning

Dispite going to bed way earlier than I should on a Friday night, I woke up around 8 AM still not feeling like getting out of bed.  I blame the cold and nasty weather outside.  Completely unmotivating.

But thankfully, I have a husband who bounds out of bed ready to get going. . .  and he had some big plans for the day, so I knew I needed to get moving myself.

Workout of the Morning:  4 mile progressive run

  • 5 minutes easy (6.3)
  • Increase speed by 1 every minute until 2 miles (about 18 minutes)
  • Easy speed for 2 minutes (6.2)
  • Increase speed by 1 every minute for 10 minutes
  • Ease into the finish of 4 miles

Nothing too spectacular, but it kept me busy at least.

And now, I need to finish gettin’ ready and then we’re heading out.  Hopefully I have the storage issue fixed by the time I check in with you all later 🙂

Question of the Morning: Have you ever locked your keys in the car?
