I decided this weekend that I would start running again, since I have the time, and actually follow through with it until I can run 5k without totally dying. As it stands currently, I can run about a minute and a half before I start sucking wind big time. I plan to stick with it, though, and hope to have fewer red/orange spots on my route sooner than later. This is a shot of this morning’s run via the Nike+ GPS app. It was really hilly and super challenging as a fledgling runner, so I’ll probably try a different route tomorrow.
After my run, I hit the mall with Becca, who was on a jeans mission. I also managed to find some new running pants and a tank for SUPER cheap at F21, and even though I really shouldn’t have, I snatched them up. I’ll feel like a fancy runner now.
I had a phone interview yesterday afternoon that turned into a face-to-face interview this afternoon. It’s a small, family-owned business currently run out of their home, and I met with the two owners (husband and wife) and the wife’s assistant. They all made me feel really comfortable and at ease, and the interview went great. The wife called me about twenty minutes after I left to say that they were VERY interested and that they wanted to make sure I sent my references right away. Sounds like a good sign to me!
And then this happened. And my life will never be the same. It’s creamy avocado pasta, and you can find the recipe here. She doesn’t know it yet, but Angela is totally my new best friend. My kid even liked it, which is a rarity these days (he survives on breaded chicken cutlets and ramen, I swear). I will be eating this OFTEN.
The rest of my evening will be spent relaxing, enjoying the evening breeze coming through my bedroom windows and catching up on some television. There may be reading involved. And dark chocolate. Definitely dark chocolate.
I hope your Tuesday was even half as great as mine. It would still be pretty great.
