What did I do you ask? Keep on readin’.
Work was work today, nothing too special to report on that front. Other than the fact that I keep being tempted by candy, which I secretly don’t mind. 😆
I bring the temptation upon myself though; I keep a variety of treats on my desk for others to enjoy. My bosses’s boss came and brought my $5 yesterday to put towards my next candy run, lol. What a nice gesture, huh?
So yes, this afternoon I had some candy and the ‘butt of the bread’ from Panera which was leftover from a meeting this afternoon. I will never, ever pass on a butt of bread. One of my brothers good high school buddies pretty much lived at our house growing up and he had a love for the butts of bread as well. We would seriously brawl over the bread butts the second my mom would come home with a new loaf. True story.
Dinner tonight was an easy classic. Chicken and rice casserole with green beans. I was good and followed the rule of 1/2 veggies, 1/4 grains and 1/4 protein.
Dipping sauces included ranch, ketchup and bbq sauce. I know, random. And probably gross to some. But delicious to moi.
Dessert is up in the air, but you know me, and you know it will always be had in some shape or form.
So today I did something I thought I would never, in a million years, ever do.
Yup, you read that right, I, Jenna, registered for a HALF MARATHON!!!!! GAHHHHHHHHHHH! This is a huge deal for me guys.
About a year and a half ago I could barely run 30 minutes. During my senior year of college I took a conditioning class and worked my way up to those 30 minutes. Right around a year ago I found Caitlin and Meghann’s blog and they both inspired me to try and push myself a little bit harder. Long story short, I am now able to run 10 miles with ease (for the most part). So why not go for the half, right? The marathon on Sunday gave me that last push. And yes, I am still contemplating a marathon…
My good friend Brian from work signed up with me today, we are totally going to rock it.
While it is a pretty long ways away, I am already giddy with excitement. I am sure I will be scared as hell when it gets nearer and nearer, but right now, I am so happy. And that my friends mean I made the right decision in signing up!
We are also trying to get Jonathan (birthday boy) to register as well. Who, by the way, now knows about my blog after reading ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ on my form and then me having to explain the whole blog story… which he loves by the way :).
Ok, now that I have written a short novel tonight, I will leave you with this questions.
Do you have any races/events/etc., that you are currently signed up for or training for?
