Saturdays Are The Best!

The morning started out with making the A-ster and myself breakfast…

Raspberry pancakes!

A-ster headed out for his dental volunteer clinic and I had the house to myself. My race wasn’t until later in the day so I decided to do a little P90X core work and yoga! I’ve been ignoring workouts that involve anything other than being outside, which happens just about every fall. However, to stay injury free, I know building up my muscles is a must.

A pizza was made for lunch. This is my kind of pizza. It is made with a brown rice flour wrap, tahini, garlic and veggies. I baked it on 320 for 15 minutes. Crispy YUMMYYNESS..  I took a bite before I took the picture. Whoops!

I did some relaxing around the house which felt good. I’ve been feeling super busy since the start of the school year. Since it was raining outside I felt justified to just sit on the couch and watch Parenthood on Netfix. Something I RAIRLY do.

My 5K race started later than what I am typically used to. I have always been a get up and run first thing in the morning type of gal. However, this race was a nice change. When we arrived to the race start and the sight was beautiful. The run took place on back country roads around a vineyard. There was a band with music playing and food trucks set up grilling BBQ, hot dogs and hamburgers  (needless to say A-ster was in heaven while he was waiting). I met my brother and brother-in-law at the start and we were all ready to run! We decided that it was every man for himself during this race (aka we wouldn’t try to stay together).

A glass of wine is the perfect way to end a 5k. Lets see if I can beat my time next weekend!

 

Happy Sunday!
