Random For Your Entertainment

Have you entered my GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a 16 x 20 Rolled Canvas Print? You have one more day so get on it. :) 

This is going to be one of those random yet entertaining posts where I really don't have anything profound to talk about but I'll still talk just because I can.

My friend and I decided to grab lunch today at one of our favorite spots…Cafe Magnolia.


I almost always get the veggie wrap here because it's one of my favorites, but when the waitress explained the special, I became intrigued.  The original contained ham, roasted butternut squash, spread, tomato, spinach and almonds.  I asked if I could sub black bean hummus for the ham and turned it into one of the best veggie wraps I've ever had.

It was a brilliant idea.  The butternut squash and black bean hummus were a match made in heaven.  I think I should start coming up with these sandwich specials. ;)

After work, I came home and got ready to go out for a run. I typically don't run in the evenings, but tonight, my company was a part of a one mile race in the city.  It's a big event that we do every year to raise money for a good cause.

I wanted to eat something before hand but nothing too heavy.  I stuck with my usual pre-race meal.

I also downed a few glasses of water.  The heat index was almost unbearable today so I knew I needed to be well hydrated, even for this mile.

The race was fun and I ended up coming in at 7:32 but I have to say, I was gasping to breath at the end because it was just so hot.  It was the first time I ever dry heaved after a race.  I think sprinting in a heat wave does that to you. 

Hope you all enjoyed the day!
