To run or not to run?

Well, this sinus infection is really kicking my butt. I was praying so hard that I would wake up this morning and feel like a new woman- nope, still sick.  Boo!

I have 12 miles scheduled for today.  So, the question is: to run or not to run?

Tomorrow my day is packed, so if I am going to to do it- I must do it today.

I think I am going to try- go slow, and see what happens.  I will run around my neighborhood and loop around my house to give myself an opportunity to bail if necessary.

When this beast is over, I am parking on the couch for the rest of the day.


I knew that I wanted pasta last night to gear up for my run.  I think that a Friday night pasta tradition sounds like a great idea during my marathon training 🙂

We need to go to the produce store- so our pantry and fridge were pretty sparse.  So, I decided to get creative.

I chopped up the last onion and green pepper….


I sauteed the onions and peppers and added 2 chicken breasts to the mix with a box of frozen spinach…


I felt like it still needed “something”, so I cut up canned whole tomatoes and added them to the mix…


I combined on jar of sauce with it, and, viola! A chicken primavera sauce. It was really good and a great way to use up all of the “end of the week” stuff in our pantry and fridge.

Hopefully the pasta gave me the fuel I need for this run! Headed out the door now!

When you are sick- do you still work out?

What is your favorite kind of pasta?
