Okay, okay…NYC is not going to get hit nearly as bad as southern NJ and DC. So maybe I shouldn’t be complaining.
But, really? It’s going to snow this weekend? The only race I’m signed up for all month and I’m going to have to deal with snow? Ugh. Can I have my $20 back, please?
Kidding of course. I know that’s part of the package when you sign up for a race in freakin’ February. But really, we have had so many lovely 35-degrees-and-sunny-days this winter. It’s been sub-20 on both of the days I’ve raced so far this winter, and this Sunday looks to be no better. Ugh.
I guess it will be worth it on Sunday afternoon though, when I can swill SuperBowl beers and chomp on nachos with no guilt at all, citing my morning racing adventure.
Today’s EAT: In an effort to not be wasteful, I decided to try to use up the rest of the corn tortillas from yesterday’s taco dinner. And I had a chicken breast in the freezer. I present to you, Mini Chicken Pizzas with Caramelized Onions:
Absolutely delicious and definitely within the “healthy” rules, if you read the recipe! They might be even a little better with wheat tortillas….I think next time I will try that!
Today’s DRINK: Guenoc Chardonnay, a delightfully cheap (under $5) Trader Joe’s pick:
If you’re willing to shell out the extra $2, this is a step up from Two Buck Chuck. Is it a great wine? Of course not. But I always pick up one or two really cheap bottles when I do a TJs wine run, because they tend to screen their wine pretty well; I’ve never had a bottle from TJs that was undrinkable. I keep hoping to find that great $4 wine that’s worth buying a case of! I haven’t found it yet – while this Guenoc is not bad, I wouldn’t buy it in bulk. It’s pleasant enough for the price though!
Today’s RUN: An easy 4 miles in Central Park. I had to go up there anyway to pick up my race chip for Sunday. I also did an hour of yoga in the morning. Two yoga days this week – go me!
