Hiya, friends! Did you watch the election coverage last night?
I did until my bowl of frozen grapes was gone. OK, this will be the end of politics here until 2016, but I thought it was neat watching Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie do their thing on MSNBC because both spoke at my alma mater back in the day. Todd talked as part of our President’s Forum, and as the Editor-in-Chief of the school newspaper, I even got to interview him!
He was surprisingly funny and down-to-earth. And at graduation, Guthrie delivered our commencement address.
She did a great job!
Workout – Running
Well, winter has arrived in New York City. This morning’s chilly temperature (35 degrees Fahrenheit) called for Under Armour and fleece gloves. (Oh, and we’re also expecting a nor’easter, and some areas are being evacuated. Sigh.) Anyway, on my way out of the building, I met a fellow triathlete! He was wearing an Ironman shirt, so I had to ask him about it. We chatted for a few minutes before heading separate ways for our runs. Or rather, he crossed the street and sprinted ahead of me. Yep, he’s an Ironman all right. After a 45-minute run with some fartleks, I also did some upper-body strength training.
Somehow, I’ve been hoarding almost-empty almond butter jars, so it’s going to be an overnight-oats-in-a-jar couple of days. Not that it’s a bad thing, of course.
Today’s mix included frozen strawberries and blueberries, plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats, cinnamon, almond milk, and chia seeds. Oh, and Seneca7 registration, aka the best race ever, opens today if you’re interested.
Blame it on the snow—I was craving a warm midday meal, and I knew a salad wasn’t going to cut it, so I toasted a turkey and cheese sandwich.
I popped it in the oven to for a few minutes and microwaved some leftover roasted veggies. Mmmm!
Again, blame it on the snow—dinner’s cooking already.
Gotta love the crock pot!
