After a little deliberation and pawning off the decision to a ultra marathon runner buddy I am happy to say that yours truly is signed up for the DC North Face Endurance Challenge on June 9th!! This race offers a few different distance, starting at a 5k all the way up to a 50 miler, I decided that sticking to wanting to do a half marathon every quarter this year I should do the 13.1 distance. I signed up for this at 6am this morning, so very little in the way of doubting myself. It is like ripping off a band aid! Better to do it quick, no need to psych myself out and think “I don’t know if I can do this” so I just did it. Now it will be a waste of money if I don’t run so you can bet your bottom I will be there.
Moving on – I was pretty excited to share a crock pot pulled pork recipe with you guys today BUT I forgot to email the recipe to myself this morning, looks like you will have to wait until tomorrow. It is fricken delicious and tastes so good with the barbecue sauce I made yesterday. The pulled pork was not ready to be shredded until 11:30pm last night so I cooked up some random things for dinner, nothing exciting so I didn’t take any pictures. I did however make a yummy dessert.
1 banana sliced up with a drizzle of wild flower honey, a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and a bit of unsweetened coconut flakes. YUM! This paired perfectly while I watched The Bachelor last night!

Not working yesterday threw me off a little and I didn’t get around to working out. I had planned on it but by the time I had finished cooking it was dark out so I remained a couch potato for the day. I didn’t take a rest day last week though so it’s all good. I plan on doing the 3 miles on the treadmill today because it is freaking cold out. Soccer tonight is in a gym instead of the bubble we sometimes play in and that is great news because the bubble can be quite cold. I can see my relationship with the dreadmill growing because of this whole sub 30 degree thing that is going on, not cool winter, not cool.
Q: What is your temp point for bringing a run inside?
Q: Is any one signed up for this North Face race?? I love friends…
PS – I made a Facebook page, it is pretty boring right now but I promise I will make it cool soon. You should definitely like it : ) There is a box to your right OR you can click here.
