Before we get to the run, on Friday…
I went to the Ohio Blogging Association January meet up at Noodlecat, a Japanese restaurant in downtown Cleveland. I had a large order of steam buns (which are basically miniature burgers/sandwiches) as the karaoke began. Yeah. Karaoke is truly not my forte and as I told several folks I usually only karaoke with very close friends! OBA must have got to me because before you know it was out there singing. Jen has a nice recap of the shenanigans.
Saturday I went to the gym and ran 1 mile, followed by 1 mile on the elliptical. It was a simple workout and in all honesty my running endurance is shot right now. So it felt like I had done a lot. Later that day I caught wind of the cold front moving through our area and I thought it would be nice to take Lulu out for a nice long walk. Then I realized… why not run? She and I have run/walked a few times now anywhere from 2-3 miles so we’ve been building up endurance.
Run pup run!
I decided I really wanted to see Lake Erie, kind of like when I got the itch last January. So we headed toward the water. In total we ran 4.8 miles. WOW! I felt so great! Granted this was a run/walk (again with my endurance being shot) but I was amazed at how many times I was telling her “Let’s go!” and we would run again.
Lake Erie in January. Bleak. But I still love it!
I slept like a baby that night and it made me want to run so much more. Except that the high will be 14-degrees today. Yikes. On my last note, I wanted to share that I made Pretzel Rolls w/Beer-Cheddar Sauce for “dinner” Saturday.
Delicious! The only problem was it took me about an hour and a half to make these. I forgot how time-consuming homemade pretzels are. Next time I might buy frozen pretzels and just make the sauce from scratch.
Are there any foods you really enjoy but refuse to make homemade?
