15K and Nerdy Habit #1

Unfortunately, this is going to be a pictureless post, but I'm hoping to have a better/more photo-rific post up tomorrow!

First off, I tried the Pomagrante Chobani yesterday in my quest of eating through the Chobani flavors. I was a bit skeptical after so many bloggers seemed to dislike it. I actually really enjoyed it. The texture was perfect and it was not too sweet and I like the little 'surprise' of the pomagrante seeds! So far, I'd give Chobani a 2 for 2.

Today I ran a local 15K. I tried to 'tempo' it with the thoughts that taking the pressure off of myself would help. I think that it did because I actually felt really strong and my splits were fairly solid. Although I did not PR, this course was more hilly/challenging than the course up north that I have ran several 15K's (including my PR) on. 3rd overall female and 1st in my age group which basically just meant I got a sweet beer glass! I like races when the prize is useful- the whole trophy thing is nice, but honestly what does an adult do with a trophy? Display it in their living room?

I've also been making some progress on my scrapbook in the last few days. Yes, I am a scrapbook nerd! I've done them for lots of different things, but most notably my high school running. As I've been racing more and more in the last few years, I decided to start one for my 'adult running' career. Pictures, newspaper clippings, random airline tickets, etc. I've almost finished both of my Chicago Marathon years, mostly because I actually have lots of pictures from those (once again thanks to my sis, the 'official' photographer!) I'm pumped to start on Boston next because I have soooo many things saved from it- it needs a book of its own!

Well, I'm off to clean and be productive. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! Catch ya' tomorrow!
