Race weekend, a great snack, and bath time.

I’m running the Baltimore 10 Miler this Saturday and to be honest, I’m a little nervous.  I haven’t done a lot of running since my marathon back in May and my knee is still being bothersome.  The course is a bit challenging (read hilly!) and the weather has turned hot and humid…I have not adapted to the humidity yet this year.  However, the race was a blast last year and I’m running with a bunch of friends and I am just going to hope for the best.  🙂

I decided it would be a great idea to take a new class during my lunch break today.  What class did I take?  Kick It.  This class was a high intensity kick-boxing class and I left nice and sweaty.  I have a feeling I’m going to wake up pretty sore tomorrow…

Once I got back to my desk, I couldn’t wait to eat my lunch.  I had leftover grilled chicken (cooked on a charcoal grill=so good) and pasta salad (from a box=so good).  I also chopped up the Mini Babybel cheese and mixed it in.

A few hours later, I was starving and reached for this Kashi bar.  For someone with a ginormous sweet tooth, this really hits the spot.  Best of all, it’s healthy and tastes great!

After a long day at work and a long commute home, I didn’t have much energy to cook dinner.  The solution…Eat Fresh!  Yup, Subway for the win.  Just in case you were wondering, I had turkey and ham on wheat with spinach, tomatoes, and onions.

Annabelle didn’t really seem like she needed a bath tonight, but when her normal bath time rolled around she kept pointing to the stairs and crying.  I finally understood what she wanted and she started giggling as soon as we reached the stairs.  I think the real reason she likes to take a bath is so that she can run around nude afterwards.  😉

She definitely keeps us on our toes, but I love her to the moon and back.

Charcoal or gas grill?

What does your perfect running weather look like?

How do you get a toddler to properly brush her teeth?

    the toddler teeth thing is a complete mystery to me! if you figure it out, let me know :). we let him chew and play with it for a little bit, then we take it to brush his back teeth. sometimes it goes better than others 🙂

    i love running in 50 degrees. or anything without humidity, really.
