Just THREE more pictures from Tuesday in Davenport and then I promise I will stop.
Okay, I lied… just one more (keep in mind that I recently moved away from my mother and I am her favorite child and so it is devastating for her that I am so far away and she needs to see as many pictures of us as possible).
We didn’t leave the house once yesterday (except for when Billy forced me at about 7 pm to go get the mail with him… yes, I was mad because it was freezing outside and I had to walk a total of 40 steps in the 40 degree weather). I couldn’t think of one reason to leave my house yesterday (besides to the deck to run on my treadmill) because I had everything I needed at home like B &B, tv, chocolate and the couch.
We finally watched the premiere of the Biggest Loser. I can already tell that this will be my favorite season. I even have my favorite contestants picked out and Brooke is excited to experience her first season of watching it with us.
Fast forward 6 hours and many cheez-its later (I am on an orange food kick) and Billy made salmon using this Trader Joe’s teriyaki sauce. Biscuits courtesy of Bisquick which is one of the many foods that I switched Billy over to when we got married (he used to prefer Krusteaz pancake mix?!?)
For dessert we hit up our chocolate stash. Dark chocolate pomegranates and Almond Truffles. I know my sweatshirt is pretty hardcore. That sweatshirt is from the race that I dressed up like a piñata for.
I really want to get in a trail run today because in 16 days I have my first ever trail half marathon and it is probably a good idea to train on some hills and uneven terrain because my treadmill and the sidewalk don’t really prepare me for dirt/roots/mountain climbing/boulders etc that I will be racing on soon.
PS I heard a beautiful rumor about this race: They offer TRAIL MIX at the aid stations… so much better than orange slices and gu at road races.
