The Race for the Cure is tomorrow so that means my first 5k. I did a practice one today - starting off walking for 3 - running for 5 - walking for 2 - running for 10 - walking for 2 and then running until I hit 3.1 miles. It took me almost 37 min. Since my goal tomorrow is to finish under 40 min and to run the whole thing I think I just might make it.
Regardless - if you told me last year as I begrudgingly celebrated my birthday in an outfit 5 times bigger than the one I wore last night that I'd be running anywhere without being chased by a knife wielding psycho I'd tell you you were crazy.
So there's that.
Once home from the gym I took care of my tootsies. My bathroom is ridiculous. The base of my shower resembles a bathtub in the loosest sense of the word. So I filled it up...
...and soaked my poor feet using this:
Then slathered on some of this:
And then put on a hot outfit:
Since I think I should be carbo loading (HA!) I made some pasta tonight. I started with the leftover Trader Joe's canned Marinara Sauce I opened the other day for pizza. For the pizza I used it straight. Tonight I spiced it up.
I used some shrimp:
And some onions.
And some roasted garlic.
I sauteed the garlic and onion then sauteed the shrimp till just pink.
I took them out and deglazed the pan.
Then I added the tomato sauce and a hunk of parmesan.
Then some spices...a little bit of basil that I had in the freezer, some italian seasoning, S&P
And a pinch of red pepper flakes - using the cute measuring cups my sister gave me for my birthday (from Anthropologie)
I chopped up the leftover asparagus from last night and tossed it with some fresh whole wheat pasta I found in the freezer.
I've got to be uptown by 8:15 ish - so I am going to try and get some sleep now.
Have a lovely evening! Please think good, non-humid thoughts for me tomorrow.
