Wednesday already? How did that happen?

I have been so consumed with what I do not know that I completely forgot about the Fourth of July  4-mile race I wanted to run tomorrow morning.


It seems I can still register and pick up my number this afternoon.

I don’t love races shorter than a 10K but I like this one because it runs through my hometown.

And because there is an endless supply of watermelon at the finish.

I ran a decent pace last year but I have become significantly faster in these short distance races so I am curious to see my finish time tomorrow.


Yes, that is me with the blonde ponytail on the left. I hate finish line pictures since the time is never accurate for when you cross and the photo is snapped.

I ran 4 miles yesterday so today I will rest my legs a bit and take the opportunity to try out my friend’s Mixed Combat/Boxing type class this morning at Lifetime.

He has been asking me to try it out for months and I just never got around to it.

Something else I never got around to: MY FOODCATION.

Remember I was trying to plan my trip away from the kitchen?

Well, it seems like all I have been doing lately  is eat out so my foodcation has been occurring without even being planned.

Continuing with this week’s salad theme, I had another lunch out and another salad at a great local place, Laguna Grille.

The salsa alone is amazing. But those banana chip things are pretty good too.

This was the best salad I have had in a really long time.

I went with the grilled vegetable salad and had them add avocado. I chose the fruit passion something dressing on the side but the truth is, a good salad that contains multiple grilled vegetables has so much flavor that it really doesn’t need dressing.

But everything is that much better with pineapple salsa. I need more pineapple salsa in my life.


I did a good job, yes?

I think on the way back from Lifetime this morning I need to stop at Fairway. Even though they stopped putting my Granny Smith apples on sale once again, my apple supply has dwindled well below acceptable.

Do you see what is wrong with the above picture of my favorite snack?

That would be a Pink Lady apple instead of Granny Smith. My life is off-balance until I correct this snack situation.



Anyone running a race tomorrow?

Do you find you are eating out more now that it is summer?

Chips and Dip or Sweet Tooth – which one are you?   I am totally a sweet tooth, I could pass on chips any day.

    I TOTALLY agree with you about the salad thoughts – a good salad does not need dressing at all. YAY for 4th of July races! I’m doing a 10K tomorrow in the 100% chance of thunderstorm + rain weather. Yipee. Not.
