For dinner, we grilled out and I made Buckeye Brownies: Basically boxed brownies with peanut buttery buckeye ingredients on top! They were easy to make and tasty if you like rich desserts. I had to bland mine up with vanilla ice cream because it was too chocolatey for me, but the sweet teeth in my household like them.
I’m home now for the whole entire week, but before I left for home, I celebrated the end of the semester with Andrea and Bre! We have perfected the fine skill of using the 10-second timer with random objects as camera stands–cupboard shelves, stacks of books, grills, etc. This time, it was an electricity box and a twig.
Lauren wasn’t able to make it, but we met up with 2 of the girls in the class below us later that night and had fun de-stressing from the busy semester
I also squeezed in my **last double-digit run before the Bayshore marathon!!** before I headed home. My friend Sharon and I met at 7am on Saturday morning to cover 15 miles together.
I started feeling tired at mile 7 and probably would have walked at mile 13, but Sharon pulled me through. Thank goodness for friends. We stopped the second our Garmins beeped and walked right over to CVS for cold drinks.
I’m having a hard time adjusting to running in the heat (heat is anything over 60 degrees right now), but with two weeks to go until race day, the only thing I can really do now is taper and hope for a cold front. So that’s what I’ll do! I took Sunday as my usual rest day, spent an hour on the elliptical at the Y Monday afternoon, and will run something speedy tomorrow.
How often do you run with friends?
Do you like rich chocolatey desserts?
