Locally Grown

One of my favorite things about living in North Carolina was the many restaurants that used locally grown ingredients.  Last night we ate at Panciuto, which had all the ingredients and where they were from listed on the menu.  How cool is that?

I love the saying, “Connecting bellies to farms.”  My belly was happily connected.  The food was wonderful.  We enjoyed a seared scallop appetizer.

I forgot the name of my dinner, but it was a delicious pasta dish with chicken, a poached egg, shaved asparagus, and parmesan cheese.  Perfect carb loading for a long run today.

Before dinner we went to an art walk in Hillsborough and listened to some beautiful live music.

I took a lunch break with Chris and Dan, picked up Subway, and headed to a beautiful property called Ayr Mount.  We laid out a blanket and munched on our sandwiches.

The boys played catch,

and then we went on a little hike and played in the creek.  I decided to wade in the water to a big rock in the middle and Simba thought that meant it was time to play.

I was inches away from a mid-day bath.

Dan also picked me a 4 leaf clover.  <3

Breakfast was a bowl of raisin bran.  I love cereal.

Yesterday’s run was a quick 3 mile trail run – but it was the hardest run I have done in a while.  I really hope today is better, or else these 8 miles are not going to be fun.

Also – good luck to Kim today with her 5k!  You are going to rock it out girl!

Thought for the day:
