As I said last night, I went to go pick up our race packets today at the running store next to Trader Joes. My running buddy (whom I haven't run with since Thunder Road) came with me. I was secretly hoping she would get caught up in the race excitement and decide to register on spot.
Guess what? I should SO be a car salesman because I got her to sign up!!! So now it will be me, hubby and my best running buddy! While we were at Run for Your Life, I found out a little info on local running groups. One is near the University and one is up at Davidson. Both will be a 20 minute drive, but it might be worth it to find some people to run with. I'll have to work on getting out of my shell to join though!
We did visit Trader Joes, which was right next door. I haven't been to TJ since we moved, but I forgot how awesome it is! A lot of their food (produce, dry grocery, frozen foods) are cheaper than where I normally grocery shop. I might have to plan trips out there more often!
I picked up some frozen tuna steak chunks (for $3/lb!), which inspired tonight's meal: grilled corn and tuna kabobs!
Grilled corn with butter and smoked paprika, tuna/red onion/red pepper kabobs, and carrots on a stick (just because I had them and I was curious to see what they tasted like). We put a tree's worth of hickory chips in the grill, so this meal tasted like HEAVEN! We even let the doggy finish cleaning our ears of corn.
And of course everyone knows what you have to do after you eat corn on the cob: practice good dental hygiene!
Is my dog the only dog on the Earth that enjoys having his teeth brushed? He practically jumps on my lap and rolls over so he can chew on the toothbrush. Weirdo. Then we relaxed on the couch to catch up on Outsourced and The Office.
