You learn something new every day. Sure, I might have learned a thing or two in Organic Chemistry at this morning’s lecture and about eggs this afternoon in Elementary Foods…but what I’m most excited about is finally getting clued in on Marathon Monday! As a runner, you’d think this would have been second knowledge, but I did not know that the Boston Marathon is the only marathon held on a Monday. Thus, the special weekday event is given a global title! Thank you, Skinny Runner, for finally filling me in : )
I am still in awe that the first man to cross the finish line today came in just a minute shy of my first half-marathon time – how is that humanly possible!?! I’d love to travel to Boston in April just to be a spectator of Marathon Monday – how fun and inspirational!
In honor of Running
Tuesday Monday, I ran my own little ‘race’…against myself…on the treadmill:
6 min. @ 6.2mph
4 min. @ 6.6mph
6 min. @ 6.4mph
4 min. @ 6.8mph
[repeat entire set @ 2.0 incline]
Total: 40 min./4.3 mi.
+ abs, arms and leg conditioning – whoopie!

My fresh food supply is just about extinct. I feel like I just made a big grocery trip, but alas…I’ll be hitting up TJ’s tomorrow. Almost zero produce and NO dairy – yikes! So, that meant slim pickings for dinner tonight. I almost always have a purple [tie–dye] box for such emergency purposes. I couldn’t resist this adorable box when I saw it at the store last Tuesday: organic, peace pasta. That says Hippy Hill all over it, can’t you see?
Luckily I still had a bag of frozen peas to add color and avocado, cucumber & tomatoes to make a veggie parfait. Simple does it best!
Any guesses at what tonight’s photography backdrop might have been?
…my jeans! I was going for the groovy theme : )
Trying to resist my after-dinner sweet tooth…
Peace + Love,
