Get writing! And eating!

I know that this is a running blog but today I am going to encourage two other things: writing and eating. What pleasures, this writing and eating stuff. I think you should do more of it.

First, eating. Today is Cinco de Mayo so why not enjoy a little guacamole? Or a margarita? Salt, no salt, it doesn't really matter. Just enjoy. Please. Because I can't -- no avocados in the house (where was my brain when I went to the market?) and I have a meeting this evening (so the margarita is out). I did, however, have some hummus spread on a tortilla for lunch. That's gotta count for something, right?

Second, writing. Have you seen RunPedia at Runner's World? It's a running encyclopedia and anyone can submit an article. Check it out! Also, Saucony is holding a contest for $1000 worth of gear here. Put on your clever cap and give it a go!

And now running. Excellent run on Sunday: 5.2 miles at 8:57 pace. I'm getting much better at slowing my pace for the easy runs. Today's run? We'll see. Planning for a quick one during nap time, if I can get everything else done before that. Where did I put those balancing skills, anyway?

Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

Thanks for the links!

Yes, writing and eating are great pleasures indeed. And reading. And occasionally having one too many margaritas. With salt, please. I need to replenish my electrolytes.

How about my favorite salsa? May have to go pick some up. Yummy!

Marlene said...

Ahh, so many pleasures and so little time!

No guac or margs for me either, but happy cinco de mayo!

Casey said...

We don't have anything here, either. So, I am eating a can of oysters. Cravings, I tell ya.

Thanks for the heads up...both look interesting.

anything on a 'tortilla' totally counts for Cinco de mayo. One of my best friends is visiting - starting today (until thursday) - and we planned on Tacos. except we opened the bottle of wine at 4:30 and ended up making cupcakes for her belated birthday, as well as some homemade salsa. So, ya know, whatever you can fit in. ;)

I downed a Corona, does that count? :)

For some reason, this post made me very happy.

I'm jealous that you get to write for a living :)

Jocelyn said...
