This past week has been incredibly exciting for a work week. I feel like something new/different/fun has happened each day and this never happens to me during the week, I’m usually so boring!
To start, I began training for the Goofy Race and a Half this week and I’m so in love with running right now! Don’t get me wrong, I also really like triathlons and at one point I thought I was going to be a tri convert, but ultimately my body craved more mileage. I’m a runner through and through. In fact, I tried to convince myself not to cross tain today so that I could run more. In the end I figured it wasn’t smart to add in extra mileage so early in the plan plus it was raining so I ended up at the pool, but still I’m re-finding that obsessed marathon runner in myself and it makes me excited!
On Tuesday I got to meet up with Kelsey for drinks! We each only had one drink but ended up getting into a 3 hour talk-a-thon. Craziness! We only realized how late it was when we both started to get hungry. Whoops.
Can we talk about the ridiculousness of the heart-noculars…. hahaha
Wednesday I had a double whammy. First, I treated myself out to lunch which NEVER happens. I’m pretty adamant about packing a lunch because it saves money and is usually better than whatever vegan/gf item I can find at a casual spot (unless it’s Chipotle but that’s a different story). Anyway, I had my formal office orientation and didn’t have anything that didn’t need to be refrigerated or warmed up so I grabbed lunch at Argotea.
They heated it up for me and I enjoyed it outside (wasn’t too hot for once). It was awesome!
Then when I got home, I had a big ole box from Chobani waiting for me. Of course the Chobani people are awesome and sent a little something for everyone. A beach towel, beach bag/cooler (the speakers play music and there’s a bottle opener on the side), and coupons for
Ian and me….
And a box for Sonic to play in…
Thanks so much Chobani for thinking of everyone in my family :P. You guys rock!
On Thursday, my best friend from forever, Brian, was in town! Brian, Steven, and I ended up meeting for dinner at Native Foods Cafe and it was soo nice to catch up!
I ordered the Ensalada Azteca Salad: fresh avocado, cucumber and jicama salsa atop quinoa, romaine and Chef Tanya’s award winning mango lime vinaigrette. Topped with currants, toasted pumpkin seeds and cilantro.
I about died. So good!
The exciting thing today is that my research team is throwing an ice cream social for some interns we had working over the summer. Of course, only a few of them RSVP-ed but we figured we could still finish out the work week with some ice cream. Fortunately, my co-workers are awesome and will be picking up a dairy-substitute for me! Should be a fun afternoon!
What exciting things have you been up to this week?
