Hey guys! Happy 6.6.12!!!
6+6=12 Cool, right? I’m a little obsessive about numbers and get a kick out of dates like today! I know this chick does to.
I started my day at GPP with the side slayer workout! It targets the oblique's from every angle and I’m already feeling’ it! If your looking for a little extra inspiration to get your workout in check out the comments in todays post on the GPP site! I LOVE everything about the GPP community.
Today was also National Running Day!! Did you celebrate? I did!
I did my first trail run of the year. There is a trail in bountiful in Mueller Park canyon that goes up to Elephant rock. Which is more like a huge boulder, that I guess looks like an elephant? I don’t see it, but that’s just what the folks around here call it.
Brent biked the trail earlier today, so when he got home I was itching to go run it. I sent out a mass text to a few friends and got two friends, Stacy & Melissa to join in on the fun.
I forget how much I LOVE trail running. As close as this trail is to home, I get that feeling like I’m in the middle of the forest, far, far away from civilization. The smell of pine is refreshing and crossing bridges, running along rivers are refreshing in so many ways. The trail is about 7 miles round trip. It is a good climb up, and when you reach the top there is an amazing view.
I didn’t bring my camera/iPhone with me but luckily Stacy had hers, so we were able to snap this pic but it does no justice for the view or my hair... I’m going to make this a weekly run, so I’ll be sure to snap better pics.. next time.
On my way home, I noticed one of my brothers was playing a game on the baseball field so I stopped by right on time to see him up to bat and get a run for his team! What a rock star!
Today, okay, last night while I was trying to fall asleep I was thinking of ways I could bring my salad on the go. This summer is going to be busy and we are going to be out and about a lot. I figured I could put it in a Tupperware but then my lettuce would get all soggy with the dressing. Then I thought, “what if I put it in a JAR?”. Put the dressing in the bottom, veggies (that don’t get soggy easy) lettuce, spinach, sliced almonds, chicken, tomatoes, peppers, anything really. Then when I am ready to eat, you can just shake it and eat it.
Awesome right? I’m excited to try different versions of salad jars. Strawberry walnut, chicken Caesar, Taco? The options are endless.
Question of the day
What would you put in your salad jar?
Did you celebrate national running day? If so, where and how was it?
