I need a volunteer on race day…

Seriously. After yesterday’s tempo run, I’m convinced that if I could just have someone volunteer to run in front of me with some type of flat screen on their back that is playing Game of Thrones, I could probably win the race.

Again, I did a 2 mile warm-up followed by 5 miles at 7:13 min/mi (4:29 min/km) and it was totally manageable…but I suspect mostly because I am COMPLETELY sucked into the awesomeness of GOT. I just finished Season 1 and because I only watch GOT while running, I can’t wait until I get to jump on the TM again!! LOL So yeah, let me know if you want to volunteer for this job!

On Sunday night I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner and I so immediately offered to bring dessert. It was a little self-serving because I had been craving Nanaimo bars.

Now, I know these are a Canadian specialty so if you had not yet had these, you MUST if you ever have the chance (simple ingredients: sugar, butter, cocoa and a little dash of vanilla, eggs, graham crumbs and coconut). It was just two of us for dinner so there were SOME leftovers (LOL) and I brought them into work…yeah, they were gone in about 2.3 seconds.

Last night I went over to a friend’s house…and hung out in their hot tub.

Ok, this isn’t THE hot tub – I can SOMETIMES actually not take pics when with people and just focus on them! LOL!

Ohhhhhh, soooooo good. And because yesterday was so “warm” (it was around 3F/-16C with NO windchill), I actually didn’t squeal in between getting out of the hot tub and wrapping my towel around me…actually, truth be told, I just stood there for a while, enjoying the “warm” air. #nojoke #iamcanadian

Rest day today. I love running…but I also LOVE rest days. 🙂

Happy Wednesday!

    Game of Thrones follows the books pretty well but they are really long. I have read all of them and they are a bit ahead of the tv show so it is fun to watch other people be completely shocked watching an episode because you know what is going to happen.

      That’s just it – my mouth is open in shock the entire episode…and because I’ve heard people say that basically any character is at risk of getting chopped (literally) from the show, I NEVER know what is about to happen!!! I just about died when the dragons hatched yesterday!! LOL!!
