This evening I went for a short run with my husband and Cali. Somewhere along the run I convinced my husband to run a 5k with me next weekend. I immediately went online when we got home and signed us up…before he could change his mind. 🙂 Last time we ran a 5k together, he totally smoked me. This time he promises to beat me again. We’ll see about that.
I signed us up for the Manhattan Beach Moonlight 5k, which is run entirely on the beach at the low tide line – it’s supposed to be the lowest tide of the year. The sand will be packed hard and flat – perfect for running. They have luminaries lighting the entire course, which sounds so romantic! I love running on the beach, so I’m really looking forward to this race. Another bonus of this race – it starts at 5:30 pm, which means no early wake-up call on a Saturday morning!
In other news, I’ve recently fallen in love with my Crock-Pot again. I forgot how much I love coming home after work and having dinner be ready. Yesterday I made a braised beef dish with peppers, onions, and tomatoes. It cooked all day and all I had to do after work was cook some brown rice and slice an avocado, and voila, a yummy meal was ready!
I’m definitely looking forward to the weekend – and so is Cali. She is going for a sleepover to her grandparents house on Saturday night, and she can’t wait. She has been resting up all evening under our bar stools (her favorite place to sleep). She was a little annoyed that I was trying to take her picture while she was sleeping.
I hope everyone has had a great week!
