Happy April Fools Day! Anyone have any good pranks planned? ðŸ™‚
No pranks from me today, but I will give you a good laugh by showing you my official race photos from the D.C. National Half Marathon last weekend! Actually, the official photos from this race werenâ€™t all that bad â€” wayyy better than the death-like ones from my first half marathon, thatâ€™s for sure! Hereâ€™s one from the beginning of the race with the Washington Monument in the background â€” see me racing around the curve?
Apparently everyone wears blue to races. Mental note â€” wear bright orange or pink next time!
Hereâ€™s two slightly awkward close ups â€” no idea why Iâ€™m so excited in the second one, but the double chin look is pretty hot, if I do say so myself.
Hereâ€™s one of me finishing, exceptâ€¦ you actually canâ€™t even see me because that that dumb guy is completely blocking me, lol.
Ah, finally, some cute ones! Right after I finished I headed to their official photo area and got a few shots snapped with my medal â€” super cute!
Might actually buy one of those, weâ€™ll see ðŸ™‚
If you ran the race (or another race recently), how did your photos come out?
Anyway! I have another delicious packed lunch to share with you all ðŸ™‚
The star was this HUGE salad full of greens from a farmers market some of my classmates organized and held at school earlier this week!
The greens are SO delicious â€” super crunchy and fresh and hearty. I added in some fresh spinach from the farmers market, too â€” itâ€™s been awhile since Iâ€™ve had real spinach instead of just baby spinach! It was a nice change ðŸ™‚
I topped the salad with leftover Brussels sprouts:
And some avocado:
For a dressing, I whipped up a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, and salt and pepper:
I did about 2 parts lemon, 2 parts mustard, and 1 part olive oil, and then added some cracked sea salt and pepper to taste. I mixed it all in a little baggie and threw it into the top of the salad tupperware!
To go with lunch, I packed a serving of crackers and a laughing cow cheese wedge:
I love these Back to Nature crackers! They taste just like Triscuits ðŸ™‚
And I also threw in a kiwi and a clementine to end lunch with something sweet!
As for afternoon snacks (I spent all day on campus in the library studying biochem, boo), I packed a Chobani pineapple Greek yogurt:
And a Larabar!
Iâ€™m off to Biochem class and then spending the whole day in the library again â€” we have a biochem test on Monday morning, gah! Iâ€™ve decided I need to study in the library more often â€” I was SO productive yesterday not surrounded by all sorts of distractions like when I study here at home.
Have a great Friday â€” go play some April Fools pranks ðŸ™‚
