A Date with 10 Miles

Happy Saturday! I was MIA last night because I went on a date. Don’t get too excited it was with my husband wlEmoticon winkingsmile5 A Date with 10 MilesIMG 2113 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

I have been craving pizza all week since I was born so we ended up at BJ’s Brewery. Ben started with the Tomato Bisque and I stole a few bites slurps.IMG 2106 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

We shared a pizza and salad. The salad was so not worth the price. IMG 2111 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

Unfortunately, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the pizza either. It was all bread and not enough sauce. I LOVE it saucy!IMG 2108 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

The last time I went to BJ’s was after last year’s Long Beach Marathon. I was delirious and hungry so I didn’t realize it’s super overrated. Now in a more normal state of mind I am aware.IMG 2112 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

We had some time to kill before our movie so Ben got a ice cream cone. I stole licks, but was holding out for Yogurtland post-movie.IMG 2120 600x800 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

We saw Tower Heist and it better than I expected (but I set the bar low). I am not a big fan of movies because I’m super ADD and hate “just” watching a movie unless I really want to see it.

Note: It took all my effort not to get popcorn. This may be a first (and last). I always get popcorn. I love popcorn. I want some right now actually….

Finally I got Yogurtland! The cashier gave us 2 spoons which I thought was weird. Apparently some people share frozen yogurt?! IMG 2124 600x800 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

I know, I thought it was super odd too! I ditched that second spoon and ran off with my dessert before Ben could even think of having a bite. IMG 2123 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

Last night I looked up a marathon training program for my next race. It said I should 10 miles today. I wasn’t sure how my body would react since I’ve had a month off, but I gave it a go.

Remember how I threw my handheld water bottle at Mile 20-something of the Long Beach Marathon? Well, I bought a new one this week. I think it’s smaller than my last one though. IMG 2126 600x800 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

I was considering an impromptu half marathon tomorrow, but those 10 miles were not easy today. I considered walking it in, but made myself run it in.IMG 2131 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

Don’t mind me, just taking a classy self timer picture on a public streetIMG 2130 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

The reason I finished the 10 miles?

Food.

I promised myself Whole Foods if I did it. Deal. I grabbed a detox juice with wheat grass on the side as an appetizer.IMG 2134 600x800 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

`I grabbed one of everything from the hot food bar and busted it open on the way home. Note to self: eating noodles from a card board box while driving is not a good idea. IMG 2138 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

I also got dessert. You know, because eating cake in parking lot at 10am on a Saturday is perfectly normal. Send help.IMG 2141 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

I also ate the biggest piece of corn bread. I’ve had a craving and meant to save it for later, but couldn’t. I was really hungry while at WF so I over bought and over ate. Now I’m stuffed wlEmoticon sadsmile4 A Date with 10 Miles

Then, it was time for a quick shower and wardrobe change. Ben and I are going to my friend Susan and Rondell’s wedding!IMG 2144 800x600 thumb A Date with 10 Miles

Rumor has it there will be cornbread. Good thing I’m ready for round #2.IMG 2147 600x800 thumb A Date with 10 MilesSee ya later!

    Looks like you guys had a fun date night! I am the same way about movies! I hate sitting through a movie unless I really really want to see it. I always try to rent a movie and then don’t because I don’t want to sit through it!

    Don’t know if someone else has already asked this or not but have you lost weight? Like a lot? You look tiny!

    I recently got that exact same water bottle but the blue one. I like it less than my older Nathan one because it is now missing the outer mesh pocket and the outer strap doesn’t stay put.

    Whole foods dessert bar is to die for!

    The last picture is awesome. Your make up is very well done!
    :) And congrats! 10 Miles is awesome. Though I always feel that the difference between doing 10 Miles and 13 Miles isn’t that big on a good day on a bad day even those ten miles are difficult.

    Looks like fun!

    I hate “just” watching a movie too. I really hate seeing movies in theaters because of this. I’m always doing something else when I’m at home watching TV or a movie. But my husband loves the whole movie experience, so I try to go with him sometimes.
