Good Race!!


I ran the White Rose 5 Miler on Saturday!  I LOVE this 5 mile race and did it in 2010 and 2011.  I was a little nervous since I haven’t been running as much as I should, and I’ve had a sinus infection.  It went very well and I actually think it was almost the same exact time as my 2010 race!  I’ll have to compare once the official times are up.

Perfect weather (I didn’t wear the sweatshirt in my before race pic) and I wore my prescription sunglasses 🙂  I’ll post more about the race once I get my race pics from my Dad!  I had a great time and I really want to do another race soon.  I taught BODYPUMP yesterday afternoon with some soreee legs but I was fine.  I’ve been stretching my hamstrings a lot.  I’ve been wearing my compression socks!

I also made an awesome dinner last night and wanted to share.  It was SO easy but tasted so good.  I’ve never cooked scallops before because they intimidate me.  This risotto was very good and it came with a seasoning packet to add to the rice.  I found it in the organic aisle.  For the scallops, I added vegan butter to a very hot hot pan.  I dried the scallops with a paper towel, added salt and pepper and put them in the pan.  3 minutes on one side and 2 minutes on the other.  Perfect!
