Weekends happen

HELLO!  I over packed my life a little too much this weekend and I was seriously out of it all day on Sunday!  Saturday I ran a 65 mileish relay race in Park City, UT.  I have a few pros and cons of this race.

PROS: Beautiful fall weather, running atmosphere, good company, sweet t-shirt.

CONS:  Too cold and late in the season, too small (I was confused with the course and got off track one time), my life is too busy right now.

I have to say that I wasn’t looking forward to this run.  I jumped the gun when I said yes when really I should have been home.  It was a long 12 hour day!  I even had my husband pick me up before our last leg because I wanted to attend one of my closest friend’s 40th birthday party,  which was on the complete opposite side of the mountain range!  It made for a fun adventure and yes I’m proud that I fit it all in!  I didn’t take too many pictures.  When I’m with my usual friends I love taking LOTS of pictures.  We’re all funnly competitive!  I’m looking forward to running Ragnar with them next JUNE!  Here we are very cold at the first of the race and a shot of me in the cute shirt!

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

3/4 c mayo

1/2 t ginger

1/2 t salt

1/2 t onion powder

3 c cooked chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)

1 1/2 c red grapes chopped

1 c celery chopped

3/4 c sliced almonds

Combine mayo, ginger, salt, and onion powder.  Add to chicken, grapes, celery, and almonds.  Mix up and eat!

I said last week I was going to post my weight and a picture each week.  I don’t have a picture of me to share, but I found a great one of Lauren Fleshman in my Runner’s World magazine!
