Outside my window:
It is cold, rainy, and slightly foggy. I am so ready for this gross cold weather to go away and for the warmer temps to stick around!
I am wearing:
Grey Navy hoodie, workout shorts and my fuzzy blue owl socks. Pretty damn comfy.
I am reading:
Under the Banner of Heaven. Man…those Mormons…
From the kitchen:
I made sweet potato and white bean cakes and pan-fried them. Pretty tasty, but they kinda fell apart towards the end. I topped the cakes with salsa verde and avocado. Delish!
Van Morrision. What can I say, it was St. Patty’s Day.
Did you know he hates performing live? True story
I did four miles on Saturday and made a return to yoga today. I have been really needing to pick up yoga again. My calf muscles were sooo very tight today.
Around the house:
It’s a mess of dirty clothes. I really hate doing laundry. I know this means that I don’t have as many clothes to wear throughout the week, but I’m pretty meh about it.
This is what happens when you combine St. Patrick’s Day and 25 cent stick mustaches. Especially when 25 cent mustaches starts to fall of your face.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!
This morning, bright and early, Leanne, Phil and I did the Shamrock 8K.
A few people showed up
This race was really populated this year. As we were running, yes we did run getting to that, more and more people kept coming up behind us. It’s not like we were in a middle corral; we were in corral 5 only one corral behind us. It was very strange.
Back to the running. Leanne and I ran from mile 1 to the end! Go us! I am super proud of us! We walked through the water stops and for a brief moment when I had some jelly beans. But, we ran and…passed people! Not just walkers, but other runners! Ha ha!
Since Leanne and I finished earlier than we normally do we noticed that the finish area was super crowded. Has it always been this way?? There was a big bottleneck and no one was moving. We decided we either have to run a lot faster or a lot slower.
I don’t know my official race time, but I think it’s somewhere around an hour.
The 8K was a great way to start off St. Patty’s Day!
Now off to enjoy the rest of the day. So far it’s included coffee, Blazing Saddles and lots of sun!
Just in case you thought St. Patty’s Day was all about green and Elvis…
That would be corned beef with sauerkraut and Leanne’s Guinness. Yumminess! Leanne cooked the corned beef in a crock pot basically all day in Guinness, carrots, and green onions. The sauerkraut is the same recipe as used here.
What did you have for St. Patty’s Day?
