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.

  2. Thanks for such a pleasant post. This post loaded with lots of useful information. Keep it up. If you are looking for the best information and suggestions related to Italian Wine Montmorency then visit Craft and Vine.
