Good morning! Happy Tuesday! I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day and, hopefully, a few days off. If you’re just catching up now, here are my posts from the weekend:
- Chewy Cherry Oatmeal Cookies
- Half Day
- There’s No ‘I’ In ‘TEAM’
- Run to Remember Half Marathon Recap
- Mal’s Birthday Barbecue
So, my morning is all out of whack today. I never finished my Feel Great Weight post for next week, so I woke up super early to edit it. By the time I sent it to my editor, walked Murphy, and ate breakfast, it needed to boogie out the door to Body Pump, so I didn’t get a chance to drink my daily glass of iced coffee or publish my morning post.
I finally took my first sip of iced coffee around 10:00 AM, and it never tasted so good!
Breakfast was a big bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, peanut butter, and chia seeds in the mix. I didn’t enjoy a glass of iced coffee like I normally do because we ran out, so I brewed a pot of coffee and then let it chill in the refrigerator while I was getting ripped at Body Pump.
Last Night’s Dinner
Last night’s dinner started with Arnold Palmers (half iced tea and half lemonade) on the front porch with Mal while we scoped out potential summer and fall races on his laptop.
A little while later, I reheated some leftovers from Sunday’s barbecue. I had a cheeseburger on a Bagel Thin with pickles, ketchup, and mustard. On the side, I had some corn on the cob.
For dessert, I enjoyed some Edy’s Cappuccino Chip ice cream. Mmmmm!
Mal and I almost signed up for the Providence Rock ‘N’ Roll Half Marathon in August, but the registration is $105! Yowsahs! I guess we waited too long because now the registration fee is wicked expensive. The price will be lowered to $92 tomorrow because of National Running Day, but I still can’t bring myself to pay it. That’s a lot of money for a race!
I’m sort of bummed that the cost is deterring me from running it, but I still have some pretty awesome races on the agenda for this summer:
Question of the Day
What’s the most you’ve ever paid to register for a race? Has the cost of a race prevented you from running it?
