Nothing went as planned this weekend

I had a pretty uneventful weekend but it should have been eventful.  There was a Halloween party but that was really bust and I was supposed to run a relay with Willie on Sunday but the skies opened up and he didn’t feel comfortable running in the rain.  It was a wash!

That was really a shame because we woke up at 4 AM to make it to the race and then it was delayed so we sat around wet for almost 2 hours by the time the race was about to start it was still raining but we were cold and wet. We probably should have prepped better for this race, but we didn’t even check the weather. This was totally our bad!


I did get to eat lunch with my sister on Friday which was fun. We were also supposed to go to Trader Joe’s but traffic was horrible. It took me 15 minutes to travel 2 blocks and I wasn’t even half way there. That was bummer. But there was Fadi’s…and we all know how much I love that place.

This was a horrible picture but I was ready to eat. Plate full of food: kale salad, cabbage salad, hummus, fattoush, tabouli and Fadi’s house hummus, along with the BEST lentil soup I’ve ever had. I’m proud to say I only ate one piece of pita bread! Score!

Yesterday we finally made it to Trader Joes and I got some guacamole hummus which is soo good.

I put it on my egg white muffin thing this morning with breakfast along with some leftover lentils.

Willie made pizza dough last night for pizza! Perfect after my 7.5 mile run! I love #marathontraining! #running #runchat #nikeplus

Yesterday Willie and I were going to run the relay because it was a low mileage week for me in the training plan. He was going to run 6.56 miles and I would do the same. That didn’t happen and it made me feel uneasy not doing the run. I did the run yesterday evening. My training plan called for 7.5 miles and that is what I did. It was a good run. I was proud. And when we were done, Willie made homemade pizza. It was delicious.

I did have a little race envy though seeing everyone finish the Marine Corps Marathon and friends doing various races. It really stung a little that we didn’t do that race. But we’re a team and united we stand and divided we fall.

But I got to meet a blog reader at The Whole Foods! Hi Jessica! Thanks for saying hi to me!

So what did you do this weekend?
