My new blog name should be running2eat.

The last few days have been spent doing what I do best…running and eating :). Monday’s run was an easy 5.6 mile shake-out run after my 5k on Sunday evening.  Tuesday was a cross-training day and I took a body pump class during lunch.  BTW, if you haven’t tried body pump yet, you really should.  It is a very effective way to get a whole body strength workout in an hour.  Today’s run was a 6.2 mile hill run…lucky for me, or not so lucky :), there are a number of hills on the courses around my work.

Before I run, while I run, and after I run, I think about what I get to eat next.  For the past two weeks, I have been eating pretty much the same thing for breakfast and lunch each day.  Pretty boring I know.

Breakfast:  Think Thin bar, Kashi Bar, or Whole Grain Power Bar.




Lunch:  Kashi Meal, Amy’s Meal, or Salad


and grapes


Afternoon snack:  yogurt and granola


Dinners are always up in the air and we do eat out a lot (I consider getting Subway to eat at home “eating out”).  After a long day of work and at least 2 hours of the day spent in the car, it is really nice to have somebody else do the cooking.

Last night Chris and I went to a place I have wanted to try for a while.  It’s a cute little place called SoupR Natural…excerpt below is from their website.

The Heneghan Family – Dan, Nell, Elynor, Lauren, Bridget and Annalee – is delighted to open a community restaurant featuring fresh and natural foods, like the herbs and vegetables growing outside our restaurant and the local eggs, meats, and ice creams selected from farms just a few miles away.

Our nourishing menu items are made from nutrient-rich raw ingredients and our soda fountain features drinks made with 100% pure sugar cane syrups.

Our menu will change seasonally and most all of our kitchen creations are intentionally prepared with healthy additives such as herbs, spices, fruits, and local produce.



Chris ordered the Carolina BBQ sandwich and it came with cole slaw and chips.  Chris said, “This is the best cole slaw I’ve ever had.”  🙂


I ordered the sandwich and salad combo:  BLT on Honey Wheat bread and garden salad on the side.  My picture isn’t great, but it tasted wonderful.


Annabelle just couldn’t decide what she wanted.


I would definitely like to go back and try some of the other menu items.

Dessert:  I think it’s pretty clear at this point…yes, I had dessert and yes, it was probably ice cream :).

8 miles is the plan for today!


Do you stick to a food routine?  Eat something different everyday?  How often to do you go out to eat?
