The action and suspense in the movie were just what I needed to take my mind away from the run. A large improvement from the chick flicks I have been watching lately. During the run there were times when I couldn't help but think about how far I had run, how far I still had to go, or how uncomfortable I was. I just kept on telling myself that I can't expect eleven miles to be easy, that it is going to require some work and uncomfortable-ness. I also screamed at myself (in my head) "BE AN ATHLETE!" a few times when I was feeling tired. I don't know why, but for some reason that helped. When I finished I felt pretty beat-down, BUT, I think I would have survived if I had to go another two miles.
Last night Dan and I headed to my sister's house for a family dinner, which also means K-man time!!!
Jessie made (wonderfully delicious) chicken fajitas and I brought black beans and rice as a side.

Kauffman, as always, was the star of the show. It is a good thing he doesn't know to ask for things like a car or a boat yet, because if he did I would give him every penny I had.
Love that kid.
I also brought garbonzo bean deep dish cookie dough pie. Dan has been requesting "melting cake" for weeks and I thought a crowd would be the perfect excuse to make it. In an attempt to decrease the sugar, I subbed 3/4 C of brown sugar for 3/4 C of Splenda.

Lunch was tres gourmet. I honestly didn't have the energy to think of anything else to eat.
|2 cups of FF cottage cheese (7)|
|two small sweet potatoes (6)|
Today is a rest day with a little bit of work and a lotta bit of fun!
