Wrappin’ It Up

I realized I have not talked about running once since starting this blog, so I thought I should probably recap my past week in running. If you assumed running is a huge passion of mine then you’d be correct. I enjoy training for an upcoming race because it gives me motivation to get out the door when I’m just not feeling it. Right now, I am not in “training” per say, my dad and I are still working out the logistics for my next marathon but I still like to pretend that I am.

Mileage –> 72.55

Honestly, this is pretty normal for me – give or take a few miles. It feels great to get back into my routine. Between finals, moving out of the dorm and starting my internship I had to take lots of rest days (no complaints) and adjust my schedule.

Reflections of the past week:

  • Hills are killer – running in Virginia is a lot easier.
  • Hills make for killer leg muscles.
  • New York drivers are aggressive & don’t care about the little girl running on the side of the road if they have places to be
  • Ditto to teenagers
  • Hot weather really drains me – pace & energy wise.

Of course I can’t leave you without some food – after all runners need fuel ;)

Sundried Tomato Basil Pesto Chicken Wrap

In the wrap:

  • 1 large whole wheat tortilla
  • Laughing Cow Sun-dried Tomato Cheese Wedge
  • Trader Joe’s Sweet Basil & Pesto Chicken/Turkey Sausage
  • 1 large zucchini
  • Handful of sun-dried tomatoes

I sauteed the zucchini to soften it & spiced it up with basil, oregano and Italian seasoning.

That’s a wrap!
