…I just can’t escape ’em. Lottery results for the 2010 NYC Half Marathon came out tonight and I got in!
I’m excited! It’s nice to have something “big” to train for. Even though I don’t think 13.1 is my favorite or best distance, I’m sure it will be a great race, and I won’t have to modify my training all that much….just throw in a few 10-12 milers between now and March 21.
Today’s EAT: My attempt at a “healthy” dinner: a Butternut Squash, Chicken and Black Bean Baked Thing. Actually, I guess this might be my first-ever “cassarole.” Which, honestly, is a word that I associate with 1950s housewives and church potlucks. But, really? It was delicious and healthy! Will definitely make it again, and refine the “recipe” a bit next time!
Today’s DRINK: I was planning to stick to water and tea tonight, but in the course of cleaning up the kitchen while the purported “cassarole” was baking I came across a half-consumed bottle of red wine from before we left for the holidays (two weeks ago). I took a little sip to determine whether it was even worth keeping for cooking and such, and you know what? It tasted great. So I had a glass with dinner. So much for dry weeknights!
Today’s RUN: Easy five miles, my usual Hudson River route. Didn’t take a watch, just enjoyed having the place to myself (it was cold tonight) and taking in the crisp air and lovely views. 🙂
