So - big J came back from 'the end of the earth' and brought home one of my all time #1 tasty treat. I proper New Orleans King cake with vanilla filling. OMG. I almost died. Seriously I still think I'm on a sugar rush. So much so my teeth hurt. But for having it only once a year - I don't mind :) History of a king cake (for those of you who don't know about this wonderful treat!!!)
**And please note - to not eat the plastic baby that is in the cake. Seriously. Who would want to eat a plastic baby??**
Weekend review! On Saturday a group of us met up at Grayton Beach for 2 10 mile loops. We ran the first 7 miles through some of the wonderful state park trails that Northern Florida has to offer. Love it. We ended up rocking out about 9 min pace for around 11 miles. Some of us stopped while others, who didn't want to wake up as early, met up for the 2nd loop. Well, since it is hunting season, the loop two group had to go more towards the bike trail due to some HUNTERS they spotted. I would freak out. This time of the year I usually look like an Easter egg running just so that I don't even closely resemble a deer!
Sunday I met up with Kim and Lisa and did exactly what all three of us needed. A nice 35-40 mile ride with an easy 3 mile run after. It was a great brick to get back into the swing of things. Lisa took some time off after IMFL and Kim has been having some bike issues, and, well, I have just been stuck on my trainer due to my schedule. It was a great time to catch up and get a good workout in!
I can't think of a better way to end a run then at Rosemary Beach!
After the brick, Big J came home and I decided to make some Chicken and Veggie Tortilla Soup form the VO2 Maxxed blog
check it out. It was AWESOME. So we just hung out, ate, drank wine, and watched football. I was a bit stressed out since I did not see the Rock Of Love Bus - but thankfully Melissa filled me in that good old Brett decided not to air due to the Superbowl. Ahh. Relief. I was seriously a bit stressed out.
Just a few random notes:
'New' computer to be finished today!
Biggest Loser is on tonight!
Anyone ever read the book 'Skinny Bitch'? Well, I got the book 'Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven' for one of my preggo friends. I just about died when I saw it!!
Have you just ever wanted to cry at work for no reason? Ugh. I need a glass of wine!
