Taught a spin class then jumped on the treadmill for an easy pace 7 miles.
I’m pretty sure I impressed a few people with my gym bag this morning.
I’m really like Jenny as a co-host on The View. I’ve never really been a huge fan of the show, but I like it more with her on there.
Oh and they talked a bout a new Muppet movie coming out Thanksgiving night. Mark your calendars! I can’t wait!
Before I get to challenges to share, I’ve been dealing with a few of my own here.
So yesterday, we didn’t make it to Penzeys Spices like I had originally planned. But, we did go on a different kind of unplanned adventure.
We braved a trip to the Asian Market.
Zion Market. I’d heard of this place before, but have never been.
Um…. holy smokes it was HUGE!
Obviously, the boys knew exactly what we were after.
Ha ha. We stocked up on a few small kabochas and a couple bags of purple sweet potatoes. Got a few other things, but not much as we have another adventure on the horizon.
We will definitely be going back though. Actually, wait, I will definitely be going back hopefully by myself so I can really scope things out and check out the good prices.
This morning my challenges were with the oven.
My ginormous no grain plantain cupcake had some issues.
I burned it and somehow a little piece jumped out and ended up on the bottom of the oven. What? The oven was, wait actually still is, dirty but I ate that piece anyway. Ha ha.
Later this afternoon this happened.
Oops. I have no idea how that got in there. Maybe it was stuck to the bottom of a pan or something, but hopefully they boys won’t miss a melted bullet for their Buzz Lightyear “pewing” guns. Shnikies.
After a week without any roasted kabocha squash, it was time.
I made some kind of random pumpkin chia protein goo to go on top. Wasn’t too shabby.
Oh and we got the most fabulous delivery today. Love seeing this Chobani box at the front door.
So, a little racing and challenge training talk.
I’ve got another race coming up this weekend. The Big Sur Half Marathon. I’m super excited to go to Monterey. The last time I was there for the Big Sur Marathon I was injured and ran “naked”. I didn’t really get to experience the whole thing, so I’m anxious to see how the half marathon goes.
Also coming up is a really fun local race.
It should be so much fun!
If you’re local and you want to come run with me you can get 10% off with the code STUFTMAMA.
They have a bunch of different options. 10K, 5K, stroller walk, Mother/Daughter team, etc.
The main reasons I’m excited about this race?
This year’s race will have a holiday theme with many new event amenities, surprises and enhancements. There will be a holiday costume contest, photo booth, cookie decorating contest, holiday spirits, punch, hot chocolate, lots of food, shopping giveaways, a huge toy drive and so much more to make this event extra special. We will also have a special stroller stride wave so the whole family can be involved.
Holiday costume contest, food, giveaways and cookie decorating? I’m so in.
Come hang out with me.
The Runner’s World Challenge (sidenote- I really, really, really miss my training plan at the moment and am a bit of a lurker on the challenge boards since others are still chatting about upcoming races and training) is offering 50% off their training plans.
Heck yes, 50% off their online plans!
Yep, you get a free watch, a book, your choice of a training plan, a year of access to the online community which is awesome and a membership to the Runner’s World Personal Trainer.
I can’t say enough good things about the challenge program. I actually need to find a race so I can use their training plan again. You pick your race, they help you along the way.
Okay, and I better get going. I’m still playing catch up with the travel laundry situation and I better get to cleaning the oven before I do any more damage.
Have you ever been to an Asian market? Have I been missing out this whole time?
Any random oven mishaps you’d like to share to make me feel better?
Do you have any races coming up?
