142.4…Steak and a Race

My husband I went to Donovan’s Steakhouse last night with some friends who recently got engaged.

A glass of Merlot started the evening quite nicely.

They had a prix fixe special on the menu that looked perfect so I went with that. You picked an appetizer, entree and a dessert. I went with the Donovan’s Chop Salad to start:

For my entree I choose the petite filet and shrimp scampi:

The steak was cooked perfectly and the shrimp was excellent! My husband ordered the special too so we each got a dessert.

I choose the chocolate mousse cake and he got the cheesecake. Both were good but I liked the cheesecake better.

For breakfast I had toast with almond butter and an orange:

I took the kids to school and went to my son’s parent teacher conference. It was a very positive conference and we got the thumbs up. Yeah!

I came home to do some work. I decided to skip Cardio Muscle class today. I’m running a 10k tomorrow morning and didn’t want to be sore or extra tired.

For lunch I had the rest of the Greek Pasta Salad:

I ate it cold and it was everything I could have hoped for.

The rest of the afternoon was spent doing laundry, picking up kids and getting part of dinner marinating in the fridge.

Like I mentioned, tomorrow I’m running a 10K. It’s my first race ever. Team in Training wants everyone to have at least one race experience before the half marathon so this will be mine. Fortunately I’m running with a friend so I won’t be by myself. Wish me luck! :)

Ever run a race before? Any pointers for me?

  3. Good luck on your race tomorrow! I have no doubt you'll rock your 10K :)
    Looking forward to the recap!

  4. Don't fear the race. I ran them back in the day and it's actually kind of a party atmosphere. You will do great. I love reading your blog - you are a great lady!

  5. Do it for fun is always my best race advice. Running with a buddy always makes it so much more fun!

  6. Is that cheesy? I just meant it in the truest way. Anyway, have fun.

  7. Good luck with the race!! Are you in it to win or are you like me and will just be happy to cross the finish line?

  8. Veronica: I just want to finish. :)
