Saturday I did my last long run before next weekend’s Leaf Peepers Half Marathon. I was thinking about it while on the run and starting to get anxious. It’s been two years since I ran a half. I’m not sure how to do that anymore! Scratch that – I’m not sure how to race anymore since it’s been so long. I’m trying to let go of expectations. I’m nowhere near half marathon racing shape and my training plan…well, it hasn’t been completely stellar. BUT, I will put in a solid effort AND I will have fun. Especially since it will cap off the Rise.Run.Retreat weekend. I can’t believe that in four days, I’ll be in Vermont with the girls. So flippin’ excited!
As luck would have it, I received a copy of the new Run Fast. Eat Slow. cookbook on Friday. Guess what’s for dinner this week? If you guessed recipes from the book, you would be absolutely freakin’ right. Every single recipe is drool worthy.
How did Shalane and Elyse know exactly what I liked to eat?
If the recipes are anything like the Superhero Muffins(favorite of the kids and I!), than this cookbook will become a weekly staple.
Since I’ll be gone Thursday – Sunday, Ron and the kids will be on their own for meals. I don’t even bother planning or leaving them dishes that can be reheated while I’m gone. If I know Ron, he’s going to wing every single night. And I’m sure there will be probably be a couple (or more) of dinners out.
What’s for Dinner this week?
Sunday: Wild Salmon Sweet Potato Cakes + Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Monday: Soba Noodle Salad with Runner’s High Peanut Sauce
Tuesday: Roasted Chicken with Root Lovers’ Winter Salad
Wednesday: High-Altitude Bison Meatballs with Simple Marinara (My son requested this after seeing the picture. Fingers crossed it’s a winner!)
Have you tried any recipes from Run Fast. Eat Slow?
