Scenes from this Weekend

What a crazy fun weekend! Saturday morning, I met up with some lovely ladies for a run at Busse Woods. Kim organized the event as one of her Zooma fun runs.
I brought a cooler of drinks courtesy of the Fort2Base Race. We enjoyed ONE Coconut Water, Muscle Milk, FRS Energy and Clif Shot Bloks after I knocked out 12 miles. It's the best I've felt on a long run in a long time, and I think the distraction of talking helped.

Tim came along for the ride. He brought his bike and thought he'd pedal a few laps while I plugged along. Within the first two miles, I ran into him heading back to the car. He had a mechanical issue and walked while he waited for me to finish up, then took me to Panera for an iced coffee. I love that man.

This other guy gets my heart, too.

After that, we went out for sushi for lunch. We went to Sushi City in Downers Grove, which I absolutely love.  The Godzilla rolls and the sweet potato rolls are amazing.  Instead of fortune cookies, we got fortune rolls ... that just happened to have "thong" on the label.

MacKenna is turning 30 and had a party last night. I brought the gift that's great for every occasion: wine.  This wine cover cracks me up. I found it at IKEA.

I brought no knead bread with dipping oils to share. It turned out really well because I mixed up the dough on Wednesday and put it in the fridge. I took it out of the fridge Friday night and baked it Saturday morning, so I got a faux sourdough without the work.

This morning, we had breakfast with our niece in Wisconsin, then took Napoleon to the dog park.

Now, I'm off to prepare our meals for the week, plan out my training and get dinner done.  Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

I love that wine bottle cover. Muah ha ha. It's perfection.

What are Godzilla rolls?

Thanks for coming yesterday and bringing all the treats!!! You rock! And it was so nice of Tim to come too :)

Nice wine cover. Very funny! Also, I have to try making the No-knead bread. Looks delicious.

The Godzilla roll was some ridiculously large creation that had tempura shrimp, spicy mayo, avocado, cucumber and every other possible thing stuck in it.
