143.8…The Final Run

Friday night calls for a glass of wine.

Well, let’s get real. Every night calls for a glass of wine but yesterday was Friday so we’ll just go with that.

I made pizza for dinner using the Garlic & Herb pizza dough from Trader Joe’s. I topped it with sauce, mozzarella, red onions and herbs.

I really liked the flavor of the crust! Until now I had just tried their plain version. This will be a repeat buy for sure.

I had two slices and a salad.

I really wanted another glass of wine but I didn’t because I had to get up bright and early today for my last run with Team in Training.

I got up at 5:45am, got dressed, grabbed my running gear and a quick breakfast of toast with peanut butter and headed out the door.

I met the team at Kit Carson park in Escondido. After a few announcements, we were on our way. Today’s run was harder for me than usual. The congestion from my cold was bothering me. I also knew that it was my last team run and I just wanted to get it done.

My half marathon is next Sunday. That blows my mind a bit. I know I can do it and am excited to cross the finish line. I have learned that I don’t love running but I don’t hate it either. I don’t plan on running another race until running becomes fun again. :)

I came home, showered and took the kids to Michaels. I need to decorate my shirt for race day so I bought some iron-on letters to put my name on my shirt.

When we came home I made a tuna sandwich with some pickles for lunch.

Now I’m icing my knees and trying to relax a bit.

Tomorrow I will be doing something crazy. I will be crossing something off my bucket list. I’m not going to say what it is…it’s a surprise. Guess you’ll have to wait and see! :)

Do you have a favorite pizza dough?

Any ideas what I’m doing tomorrow? For those who know….be quiet! :)


  1. I'm guessing bungee jumping or sky diving. I'm so excited for your upcoming race! My favorite dough is Wolfgang Puck's plain white American-style dough, with a whole wheat recipe coming in a close second. I make the whole wheat more just b/c it's a little healthier.
