Ours has been filled with the usual. Good food:Thanks to this “adult” fish sticks with aioli recipe from food52, my new favorite food blog. Paired with baked sweet potato fries and some sautéed kale for a nutritional kick!For some reason our aioli didn’t turn out nearly as creamy as the one pictured in the recipe… and thus we made our meal a little less adult-like by bringing in some good ole Heinz.We continued to delight our inner children with a game of Monopoly Millionaire.Anthony was buried in so many millions that he died.Unfortunately I think my bitter loss led to an illness. Saturday’s long run was canceled due to a stomach bug. The only thing I did all day was walk to CVS to buy a bottle of Pepto Bismol.
I only bought one thing. In return I received the longest receipt of my life:
I felt a bit better and attempted my long run this morning, instead. A muddy path…and some monuments…and then the metro. I made it about eight miles before admitting that I literally could not stomach this run and had to call it quits.Not the most uplifting way to end my run, but not every run can be perfect, right? To cheer myself up, I just looked back at this post from exactly one year ago, when I was stuffing my face with sushi. Sweet memories. Have an uplifting Sunday!
- Have you ever had to quit on a long run? How did you handle it?
- Do you shop at CVS and fall victim to their extreme receipts?
- Do you have a blog or diary that you go back to and read often?
