I’m feeling a bit under the weather. Nothing to be concerned about but I’m definitely having some stomach issues and I’ve felt queasy since last night. Its not fun- especially considering I have a busy day today!
I still managed to get in a workout this morning. I did my weekly brick at the gym (rainy here) in order to clear up my Saturday for the Color Run and spending time with my friends from Michigan who are staying with us and running on Saturday as well. I rode 12 miles on the bike (44 minutes) and then ran two miles on the treadmill (btw a 7:30 and 7:40 min/mile). I couldn’t believe how quickly I got bored, but then I haven’t been on a treadmill since March.
Now I’m choking down some breakfast (which is a good thing considering an hour ago the thought of cottage cheese overnight oats made me want to puke) and sharing some interesting links with you!
Remember that time I wrote a blog post about the cost of health? Well, I stumbled across this article yesterday that compares the costs of co-pays with the costs of procedures out-of-pocket. Did you know that if you have an insurance you may pay more for the same procedure than someone who doesnt? Say whaaa?
I made Ashley’s banana scramble yesterday and it was awesome. Especially topped with peanut butter and berries. I’ll have to try it in sandwich-form soon.
Coffee lovers rejoice, coffee has been linked to decreased mortality. Woohoo! I think its time for my second cup
Runner’s World has done it again. They always send out recipes that are drool-worthy but I never quite get around to making them. I think that has to change though, portobello and aspraragus tortellini? Yum!

Also, any other Big10 alums out there? This year the BTN is hosting a 5K/10K that finishes in Soldier Field. I’m planning on registering and running the 10K decked out in maize and blue . Will you be running? Which team will you support?
Have a great Thursday!
