Food and running with friends

FOOD -
I have been making a lot of yummy open faced sandwiches lately.  I use my grocery bakery's multi-grain panini bread and toast it.  Then most time I will smash about a half or 1/4 of an avocado on top...then I like to add different things on to that.  One day it was strawberries, goat cheese and arugula! Sooo tasty.

Another day I do what a call and "pan scramble" and just crack an egg into an already hot pan and scramble with a fork as it cooks. This time I sauteed some baby spinach first then cracked the egg in and scrambled it all together.  Topped with a really juicy farmer's market tomato.  These things are awesome.

Speaking of Farmer's Markets.....the running group I am a part of likes to meet there for a group run on Saturday mornings and then, those of us who want to, shop the market afterwards.  My boys love it because I bring them back a ginormous cinnamon roll for breakfast. This time of  year the tomatoes are so perfect and delicious. I should have bought more than two!  Anyway, running with friends before these Farmer's market sprees has become something I really look forward to throughout the summer and beginning of the fall months.  The trail that we run there is very shady so it allows an otherwise uncomfortably hot day to be somewhat bearable.  I love my running friends!

This weekend, we have planned a group run in DC.  Although we have to get up early to beat the crowds, it is so worth it to be able to run the monuments and chat with friends.  We have a blast!

New running socks review!

Today I tested out abother pair of procompresion socks.  I have always worn Feetures and still will but these will be my new go-to pair...luckily they came in a two pack!  They are seamless and so soft and have special areas that are more cushioned (right where I normally get blisters). I am excited to try them out on a longer run!



Ragnar Richmond Recap!

First Ragnar Trail relay is in the books and boy, was it an adventure!  Notice I said, "first"...I had originally thought I was "one and done" with these things (as I am with the full marathon) however, I think I could enjoy another go of one. Definitely a fan of the trail version and not interested in a road Ragnar though (the thought of sleeping in a van horrifies me more than camping!).  I think I need to wait til 2019 (or even 2020 ) though - not ready to train for another in 2018!  Gotta let the paint dry on this one...So, here's a detailed recap of our adventure:

Thursday 3pm-ish: 4 of us drove down to Richmond with all of the camping gear in order to set up our site and get checked in.  This was a great plan because we were able to scout out a site and set up before the rest of the team arrived the following morning. Our start time was one of the earlier times on Friday (10am) so we didn't want to be worried about setting up camp and then running our…

Swimsuit roundup

Just got back from a glorious week with the family at the beach.  It was really what I needed in order to re-charge my batteries before the upcoming school year begins next month. It is always the hightlight of our summer and really our entire year because we get to spend a whole week together with family and extended family.  My youngest son was so upset for it to end that he nearly cried himself to sleep last night. (He's 13 now!)In honor of our beach trip I seem to always buy a new bathing suit....with the exception of this year! I didn't buy any new suits but managed to have a different one to wear each day. Thought I would do a bathing suit roundup of my suits and if they're not availbable anymore I linked some selections of suits that are similar in style. First off is this triangle suit from last year that I purchased from Target (linked to similar style)- which I topped with the Michael Stars Ruana from the summer 2017 FabFitFun box. (By the way, so many cool things…
