A long weekend equals a lot of photos, so I will try to keep this quick!
Let’s backtrack all the way to Friday, when Eric and I made pizza! I went with my regular of potatoes, kale and chickpeas, with some cashew cream.
The pizza was great and it was the perfect pre-race fuel! We went to sleep pretty early since we had an early morning planned.
Saturday morning was all about the half marathon. Now that it is all over I can’t wait to do another one! Atleast I have three planned for this fall!
We spent the rest of Saturday lounging around, and then finally got to work making dinner. The weather was perfect all weekend, so we busted out the grill.
We put on our best grillin’ outfits…Eric went with a white tank top and some cut offs.
I tried to stay up and hang with the cool kids, but I was exhausted Saturday night and just went to sleep.
But I was very excited to wake up Sunday morning with minimal pain in my legs. My right hamstring was sore, and my left knee, but I did some yoga and iced the knee and both of those made a big difference.
Our waffle maker is still going strong so Eric made waffles and tempeh bacon for breakfast.
My hunger was slightly out of control on Sunday so not very long after breakfast I was hungry again.
Eric, Juli, Adam and I all met up at The Belgian Cafe for some afternoon drinks and eats.
Eric ended up ordering the vegan wings.
Juli continued being an awesome hostess and invited Eric and I to stay over for dinner. We were able to put together some sort of Mexican themed meal that was delicious.
While Eric and Juli cooked, Adam and I got to drinking.
I was pretty happy to wake up Monday morning with no pain in my legs, and went out for a short recovery run. My legs felt heavy the first half mile, but after that they were fine!
Eric and I were going to an afternoon BBQ and wanted to bring a dish.
I prepped some pita dough.
After too much sun and fun Eric and I headed home, but stopped by Whole Foods. Does anyone here play foursquare, not the old school ball game, but the check-in game? Don’t make fun of me…but if you use foursquare you can check-in at Whole Foods and get a small container of gelato or sorbet. I picked blood orange and it was good.
And done. That was a lot. As much fun as the weekend was, I ate and drank a lot and barely slept and feel terrible today. I can’t wait to rest of all week because we have a BIG weekend next weekend. We have some pretty special people coming to visit!
