Grasshopper Pie and A Not Quite 10K Race
Monday, July 16, 2012
My husband's birthday is today and he requested grasshopper pie. I scoured the internet for a recipe and asked my MIL what recipe she used. She couldn't find hers but found something on the internet that seemed close. That's what I made.
It got a thumbs up from my husband, so mission accomplished.
We ran what we thought was going to be our first 10K race yesterday. It was Miles for Migraines and this was the first year they were doing it at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. They also had a 2 mile walk and a 5K race. The 2 mile walk ended up being 2.25 miles, the 5K was correct length and the 10K was about 5.5 miles. I got 5.42 on my Runkeeper...the Polar GPS wouldn't find a satellite. I think they averaged the mileages from everybody who had a GPS to get the 5.5 mile number. My husband came in at about 55 minutes and I was timed at 1:03:33 (but I could swear I saw 1:02 when I hit the finish line). My brother came in third place in the 2-ish mile walk and won a $25 spa gift card...pretty sweet.
After the race, we headed out to brunch. We were pretty darn hungry.
Yesterday was my father in law's birthday so we met with the family for lunner.
Busy day but fun.
Today I took the day off to spend with my husband.
My legs and butt are a little sore from the race but not bad. I've got a sports massage scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.
