Perfect weather

Yesterday it rained most of the day, then the clouds magically cleared and the sun was shining!! After work I had planned squeezing in a run, but the weather was just so perfect (70, breezy, and sunny), I decided to take my time and run a bit farther than I had planned. The pup and I ran "the boulevard" - a 5.2 mile section of the greenway that goes through a beautiful neighborhood by the water. And my greenway, I mean teeny gravel pebbly things. Makes for a slightly harder workout - almost like running on the sand. I parked at the church so the first mile was downhill but that means the last mile was uphill. I don't mind running it that direction because it lets me warm up, but my dog is not a fan. He pretends to lose any energy on the last mile, making it that much harder. I typically have to pull him up the last hill and yesterday was no exception. I had planned on getting a picture of both of us at the park but he went straight for the trunk of the car to get his water. We have a little routine where he jumps in the back and I pour his water - I have rubber mats for the messy drinker :)

Wednesday nights are date night with Joel, so the pup and I hit the grocery store then headed over to Joel's house. We made turkey BLTAs (turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado). Mmmmm sooo good!!

Turkey BLTAs!
I'm noticing a pattern here...I tend to always have my camera (read iPhone) near food and/or beer but never on a run. Gotta work on that.

A bit of a side note: I got quinoa while at the store. I've never had it but I've heard such great things about it! Seems to be a good option for me since I tend to lack in the protein department. With all this activity, I can tell my body needs it. Anyways..very excited to try it. Anyone out there know any good recipes?


  1. We make TBLT's probably once a week, and never thought about putting avocado on. I am so stealing this idea!

    1. The avocado really makes it!! Highly recommended!!
