Kelly the Culinarian: Three Things Thursday

Three Things Thursday

1. I recently signed on to act as an ambassador for the Esprit de She race on July 18 in Chicago. It's an all-ladies 5K or 10K in the evening that features really nice gear (it's sponsored by Athleta!) and a post party that sounds fairly epic.  The race is July 18 downtown, just a few days before my Ironman 70.3 triathlon in Wisconsin on July 21. I think it will be great because it will keep me from thinking about the race and getting nervous. I haven't decided if I'm going to run the 5K or 10K. Suggestions?
2. Between work and a few projects that I have on the horizon, I'm in the midst of the best week ever. I can't quite let the cat out of the bag, but I think we so often glaze over reaching our goals because we're so focused on the next big thing.  I won't do that. This week is awesome, and I am proud of myself.
(Alissa made me this in college. I was afraid that when I went to grad school at Medill, I'd be outshined and outgunned and she wanted to remind me to stay positive. We are big Anchorman fans.)

3. Tim is in class tonight, so I'm spending this Hallmark Holiday with my other Valentine. Napoleon is not thrilled about the arrangement. It's no White Castle Valentine's Day date, but it's still pretty cozy.
Everything is cute when it's asleep, but he sure is an adorable fur ball.

I still hold to it that you are awesome. Happy Valentine's, love!

I've been debating running that one or not-it sounds fun! But now that I know you are...I just might have to.
