Happy Wednesday...which, by now, is synonymous with Happy WIAW!
But first things first, I promised last WIAW that I would share details on the Run For Your Lives 5K that I ran on Saturday. Well...it was way fun and I can't wait to do it again! :)
As we got off of the bus to pick up our race packets, this is the sight that greeted us:
Going up the right side of the hill was the start of the race. The left side (with the tarp) was the slide down!
Going up that big hill to start the race totally sucked but I made it. The fun started once we hit the top...zombies everywhere were trying to rip the flags (our "lives") off our belts. Some of the zombies were SO creepy looking.
Yikes! Aside from outrunning zombies, we had a bunch of obstacles to tackle - a maze house, a muddy pit of water, an electric fence, etc. Oh, and did I mention the mud? Holy sheeeeet, it was muddy! Obviously the race organizers plan on mud but the entire week of rain really helped things along. We had to walk in some areas because the mud was so deep (as in, over my ankles) and slippery.
Regardless, the end of the race was the most fun. We slid - actually, we f*#&%^! FLEW - down the huge hill on a big tarp slide and landed in a deep pit of muddy water! A couple of zaps from the electric fence aside, I made it outta the race...as a zombie.
Okay, all that running has worked up an appetite so onto WIAW! Advance warning: most of my pictures this week suuuuck. I'm going to blame it on my crappy camera but really, its most likely because I was impatient yesterday.
Breakfast: Banana-Cocoa Overnight Oats & kiwi
I'm so glad that I finally jumped on the overnight oats bandwagon! They have totally made those busy mornings SO much easier. Grab n go!
Dinner: Chicken & black bean burrito; salad (unpictured)
This burrito was awesome! I loosely used a Cook This, Not That recipe to make it. Sauteed onions and green pepper, lime and cumin-ed up black beans, shredded chicken, lotsa cilantro, and cheddar cheese all wrapped in a Flatout Harvest Wheat flatbread. And let's not forget some sour cream on the side. #perfecto
Dessert: Edy's Pomegranate fruit bar!
One more picture to share from the weekend. Only because it was totally awesome.
Filet mignon wrapped in bacon.
Oh yes. Perfect mix of high-brow and low-brow, eh? ;)
Off to check out everyone's eats.......enjoy your day!
