Thank Goodness

We had our biggest count yet: 83 birds! 52 were Mississippi Kites, but hey, I’m not complain’n.  I can’t wait till the days when we count HUNDREDS of birds…I love being inundated w/ birds I love.

Quick post before I shoot off to bed and cover my body in Benadryl cream from all the mossie bites from my run today….bollocks on them!  Anyhooooo…

Breakfast was kinda small now that I think of it.  Some kashi go lean crunch w/ strawberries and blueberries and a bit of greek yogurt.

Biked to the tower and we had some visitors, but as soon as they were gone I opened up my snacks since the tummy was a growl’n: peach (only about 2/3 since the other 1/3 went bad) and crackers…

And since that didn’t satiate me, Banana Nut Odwalla Bar (AWESOME…FAV KIND!)

Since my tum tum wasn’t feeling good last night I didn’t get a chance to have the grilled corn my coworker made for me…so I ate it at lunch:

Along w/ lots of Sabra Pine Nut Hummus, carrots and a wrap containing more hummus and veggies

I spent most of the afternoon counting the birds and when it died down around 3 I had my afternoon snack of chocolate chip zbar and a mini orange…

Then came home to read and RUN!  And boy did I haul a$$ coming back along the road as I could hear the mossies OVER MY HEADPHONES!!!  Now that…is madness.  but 5 miles was completed in 42 minutes…or maybe it was a little more than 5 miles…I’m not sure…

How am I ever going to train for the SAN ANTONIO 1/2 MARATHON with that all the time?!?!?!  Suggestions?  Because I’ve tried the bug spray…and I sweat it all off.  Boo. 

But have I mentioned how excited I am to be running this race??!  With several of the girls from my WWR team running in upcoming 1/2 marathons and marathons I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do one myself…since I’ve never officially run one myself. :P  We’ll see how it goes!

I came back and cleaned up, but had to wait a bit for my appetite to kick in, so I called the rents and the boy before i demolished this black bean burger and apple

and had some TJ’s dark chocolate covered edamame for dessert. :)

Time for ney ney…Till Sunday!

    I use a mix of apple cider vinegar and water (1:1) for a quick spray for me and my dog when we go hiking. Yes you will smell like vinegar for a minute (or three) but it helps keeps the bugs, gnats, and ticks away. I don't know if it will help your mossie situation or not but might be worth a shot. :)

  8. Meg says:

    Yeah for lots of birds! Sorry about all the bites…no fun!

    You're doing a half? That is SO exciting! I am hoping to do one soon too! Great eats. Everyone has such good things to say about that Odwalla bar- I need to get my hands on one :) I love how much you enjoy your work :)

  10. Jeri says:

    you've NEVER done a half?!? you crazy girl. it's probably the perfect distance, although I've only ran a slew of 5k's and 1/2s so I'm not sure that I have enough to compare. :p

  11. Andrea of Care to Eat says:

    I want to run the Cowtown half-marathon this coming February. I did the 10k last year. If you would like to have an excuse to drive up to Dallas for a weekend, you should join me and you'd have a free place to stay! Just throwing it out there :)
