Odd combinations. . . .that apparently do go together!
1. My dad + running. . . . . Apparently my dad has turned into a runner. Say what?!?! I don’t know what has happened to him, but I was talking to my mom on the phone and apparently he has been running for 20 minutes these past few days—and likes it! Woohoo, go dad. I’m so proud of you!!
2. 73* + Smokin’ Hot . . . . . .Really, Anchorage? Really?? 73* = “Smokin’ Hot?” Alright, I’ll give Alaskans the benefit of the doubt on this one, for Alaska (Anchorage) this is very warm! I know in the past 5 years I have been up here, this is the warmest weather I’ve ever experienced!! And all of you from “the Lower 48″ are probably laughing at us right now. Ha!
3. Fried potatoes + hummus + salad greens . . . . .This salad that I made last night was actually pretty decent. (I have a bad history of making disgusting salads at home.) Who knew fried potatoes on a salad would taste pretty decent. Also, I’ve seen people use hummus on their salads as a dressing and surprisingly I thought it tasted alright too.
4. Non-dairy frozen dessert (does not) = ice cream. . . . . . Sorry soybeans, you just can’t make a good ice cream. I tried to trick my sweet tooth into giving it “healthy” “ice cream,” but it knew better. This was not good! I’ve had decent soy ice creams in the past, but I was not impressed with this one.
And one may think this is a healthy version of ice cream, but I wasn’t that impressed with the stats. (But then again it does depend upon which brand/type of ice cream you are comparing it to.)
One combination that does go well together. . . . .me + running! And this is a hard one to break apart. . . . .I’m an addict, what can I say?
Distance: 8 miles
Average pace: 8:11 minutes/mile
Finally, an easy run, and I stayed above 8:00 miles—as in I didn’t run faster than 8 minute miles! It was a wonderful run: effortless, the perfect temperature, and I got lost in my thoughts. So good!
