The modern grapefruit is no longer what it used to be.I noticed this bizarre label on a bag of grapefruits I bought the other day. Apparently it’s some weird 80s-like Sunkist marketing scheme. Apart from grapefruits being “cool” and “hip” in this modern world, they’re also just plain good for you. So I have been trying to them more often. (This About.com article says that their low-fiber content makes them a good pre-run fruit, too.) Sorry, mom!
If that wasn’t a random enough way to kick off this post, then this might be:
My “bed” for the night. In general life news, I am moving in with Anthony on Saturday (!!!) and have sold everything I own to Craigslist strangers. What an adventure! Unfortunately it means I have no bed now, so an air mattress must do. Maybe this is “modern” camping?
Bad sleep = missed run this morning. Which isn’t quite as big of news compared to Mark Covert, who will miss his first run in 45 years tomorrow.
“The way I’m looking at the end of my streak is that it’s like an old friend, and we’re parting ways. It’s time for him to go in one direction, and me in another, but we’re still good friends.”

Less running talk means we can move onto fish tacos more quickly!The other night Anthony and I were feeling fishy. These babies saved the day!
We used arugula instead of cabbage, greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and also added a can of black beans to help “stretch” the recipe. Topped with a mango salsa and rolled in a warm corn tortilla. Each bite was a trip to tropical heaven.A question for you. Corn or flour tortillas? What brand of tortilla do you eat? We are still on a quest to find a sturdy, tasty, and somewhat healthy taco vessel. This means we have to eat a lot of tacos.
May your day be full of randomness too!
