Fueling Up

Happy start to the weekend!!! I am so excited for this weekend – we have a lot of fun stuff planned!

Nick and I ditched our original plans so we could come home and take a quick, easy run to stretch our legs – thank goodness we came home when we did! It had just stopped raining, so we were able to take an easy 2 mile run and stretch everything out. I ended the run by doing some yoga poses, which felt amazing – a couple runner’s lunges, crows, and down dogs – just what I needed!

After showering and changing clothes, we headed out for dinner at The Palisades. This wasn’t our original plan, but it still had what we wanted tonight : pizza! We were both starving by the time we got there, so I was ready to chow down.

We started out with the free crostini + hummus + tomato jam. This stuff is so, so good. Really garlicky.

I had this x 2!

We also ordered some of their wings, since our chiropractor told us they were really good. She was right! They were the perfect spiciness for me – hot, but not too hot.

Again….this x 2! Plus a few stalks of the celery that came with them to cool my mouth down.

I also ordered a side salad so I could get a few veggies in with dinner. I know I had a huge salad for lunch, but I didn’t want all of dinner to just be bread + wings + pizza.

For dinner, Nick and I ordered the supreme pizza to share. I like the honey wheat crust here – it’s not greasy at all and you can actually taste the dough! Plus, the slices are the perfect size and the pizzas aren’t humongous either.

and….picture this x 3  :)  I am sufficiently carbed up!

Nick got dessert, but I just couldn’t handle any more than 1 bite. I didn’t want to eat too much and go to bed on a stuffed belly.

We have plans for some easy stretching in the morning, bowls of oatmeal and then hitting the road!

I can’t believe the race is tomorrow!!!

Hope you had a great Friday! Night  :)
