I had this amazingly chocolatey chocolate covered apple the other night. It was so delicious that I think it’s on my list of best chocolate-covered apples ever.
Why I loved it:
- It had a super thick coating of good tasting chocolate.
- The chocolate sprinkles were a really nice addition in flavor and texture.
- There was no caramel involved so nothing got chewy or sticky – just straight up chocolate and apple.
Chocolate covered apples are sort of my thing, in case you didn’t know. This one from Kilwin’s last summer was great and not that messy from the caramel.
Moving on to more randomness…
My biggest pet peeve in life at the moment is when I email tech support and they reply back with their forum links on related topics. Like, really? What has happened to customer service? I don’t want links, I want support in the form of a personable response that addresses my specific question. I want personalized service! I want to feel heard! I don’t want to do the work to find my answer, I want you to answer my question and help me!
Why is it that I can leave my laundry in the dryer for days on end but I can’t handle knowing there are clean dishes in my dishwasher. Just the thought of clean dishes sitting in my dishwasher makes me twitch until I empty it.
One food I am always running out of lately? Eggs.
One food I used to love yet now makes me nauseous when I try to eat it? Barbecue sauce.
Taper weeks don’t usually bother me but the crazy thoughts are starting up.
I think I am in the mood to switch up my pre-run breakfast from oatmeal to cinnamon raisin toast with mashed banana and peanut butter. Maybe some jelly too.
Ohhh, a French toast bagel with jelly sounds perfect for breakfast before the race!
I love my lululemon Run Inspire Crops but you know, I could really use a pair of running shorts. Maybe I will get a new pair and wear them for the race if it’s hot.
Now is not the time to make these sorts of changes and decisions, which I know and I won’t, yet I couldn’t hold off on a new pair of Energy Boosts.
Uh huh. Just like that. My Boosts burned out on me. After careful discussion with Laura to determine if I did in fact need new running shoes for the race, I rushed to Runner’s Edge the same way I rush to PM Pediatrics when my son is sick at night.
Help me! I need a new pair of Energy Boosts right away for Sunday’s Half Marathon!
I will get two short runs in the new shoes before Sunday and I am really not worried about them not being comfortable. In fact, Hollie just wrote a great post addressing some secrets about buying running shoes which talks about the whether or not running shoes actually need time to break in.
Did you hear about the 12-year old girl who was running her first 5k and accidently found herself running a half marathon? Article here.
