Since I spent so many long hours yesterday doing school work, today I spent a good chunk of time in the kitchen. Oh it was lovely. But first let me tell you all my exciting news! I will be doing my first (and second) 5k in December! My first will be in Michigan on Dec. 11 while I’m out visiting a potential internship program and my family who live out there. It’s called Run Like the Dickens and I will be running it with my aunt, uncle, and cousin! My second will be in Albany on Dec. 18. It’s called Albany Last Run and it goes through the holiday lights in the park. I’m sure it will be beautiful and I’m running that one with another cousin and my brother! I’m so excited :) I ran 1.5 miles yesterday and today to start preparing. ~3 weeks and counting…… Check out my pretty new running shirt that I got at TJ Maxx last weekend:
So what have I been up to in the kitchen you ask? Well yesterday I actually whipped up a big batch of pumpkin yogurt and some homemade pumpkin butter. I had some pumpkin butter on toast last night. Yum. And used some pumpkin yogurt on oatmeal this morning. Yum.
Today I decided on two delicious recipes from other bloggers that I just couldn’t pass up. “Tortellini Tomato Spinach Soup” from Kristy and “Cranberry Apple Bread” from Courtney (I also used her homemade pumpkin butter recipe up above.) I did however switch up the all purpose flour to whole wheat.
What a delicious and fulfilling day :)
I also spent some time at Simmons Radio Station learning the ins and outs because next semester I will be starting a Nutrition Talk Show! I will have a ton on my plate though so I’ve recruited some people and hopefully will get a few more so we can alternate hosting duties each week. I just have so many things that I want to do! If only I could make days more than 24 hours…… or be able to run on no sleep, that would be interesting.
Happy Hump Day!
Any tips on getting ready for my 5k(s)?
