It was a fabulous day! In terms of the weather, maybe a little too fabulous for the marathoners if you catch my drift. It was super hazy at the start but like 2 minutes after the race began the sun came out in full blaze....uh oh. :S
|So Lola, how's the view in Fredericton???|
|Almost Go Time!|
Yes, two of them!
1. This is like the coolest song ever. Trust me. You'll definitely head bob to it. And if you're like me, you'll add it to your 1/2 Marathon playlist. ;) Check out 'Fever,' by The Black Keys. How awesome are they?!?!
So Monday I ended up here again..............
This Cold virus is hanging on tighter than my compression socks. Be Gone Nasty Cold!!!
I am feeling a kazillion times better, but my cardio is not where I'd like it to be. I am running the Blue Nose 1/2 this weekend (on the okay of my doc) and I think I can safely say that a PR is out of the question, like big time. Do you remember when I crushed my old half PR at last year's Blue Nose! I have doubts I'll ever come close to that again.....but I'll keep trying!
So I finally ran again! It was Wednesday evening. Super short, super sweet and a little wheezy. ;)
Peel and chop two sweet potatoes into circles...mine were an inch or so thick.
Drizzle a casserole dish with EVOO.
Sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, garlic powder and chilli pepper.
Cover with tinfoil and bake at 350 until they are at the desired consistency ~40 minutes(I flip them midway through).
When they are done, garnish with chives and sesame seeds. Super Yum!
It was sunny and awesome out! So shorts were worn :D I ran a portion of it on the trail and then hit up the main road for the last 7-8 km.
I bought my cousin one of these for his birthday in February and they had pink as well, so of course I rationalized myself into thinking I also needed a Blender Bottle. ;) I do love it. :)
Well, thanks so much for stopping by GGR. Wish me luck in the Blue Nose 1/2!!! Due to the 'marathon cold' that I have, I will use this half as a training run to prep me for the Johnny Full. The weather looks great and I'm definitely looking forward to it.
Have a wonderful day!
Blue Nose 1/2 in 3!!!
