4th of July BBQ Recipes & A Beautiful 6 Mile Run

Posted Jul 03 2010 9:45am

Good morning!

First things first: going to a BBQ this weekend and need something to bring? Try my Healthy Deviled Eggs ! No mayo here, just deliciousness :)


Or my Hummus Guacamole !


Or my Oatmeal Banana Coconut Cookies :)


I hope you’re all enjoying your holiday weekends. It’s a beautiful day here in D.C. – perfect for a run! So that’s just what I did :)


Heather , Ashley, and I met up this morning for a 6 miler in Georgetown along the Capital Crescent Trail.


It was gorgeous! We’ve had a big break in the humidity and it’s felt like fall weather all this week. It’s starting to heat up again this weekend, but still way better than it has been!



We had a great run – the best I’ve had in quite awhile, in fact! Maybe my speed is finally coming back? I lost a lot of it when we started doing crazy long runs in crazy hot weather while training for the half marathon .

We ran 6 miles in 51:38, for an average pace of 8:36.

  • Mile 1: 8:45
  • Mile 2: 8:50
  • Mile 3: 8:39
  • Mile 4: 8:32
  • Mile 5: 8:25
  • Mile 6: 8:25

Woohoo! I love running with Heather and Ashley :) We had a blast chatting away the entire time. I’m going to miss them when I move!

After the run, Heather headed on home and Ashley and I sat on the wall overlooking the water for a bit while we cooled down.


It was fun watching all the kayakers go by :)


Now it’s time to get back to homework, sadly. I didn’t get as much done yesterday as I wanted to, mostly because any attempt at work came to a screeching halt when I came face to face with a MOUSE in the cupboard in the kitchen. The mouse stared in shock, I screamed and slammed the door; I’m not sure who was more terrified. Needless to say, I spent the rest of the night freaking out , including enlisting the help of my neighbor’s cat to try to get it to catch the mouse. Instead, the cat just stared at me and my neighbor, like, “Wtf am I doing in here?” and proceeded to go hide under my bed. Sigh. Now I’m clearly scared to do anything that involves the kitchen.

And yes, I know I’m a total wimp. Mice are scary!
