Marathon Envy & a Menu Plan

I want to send out a huge congratulations to all of those who ran marathons today – Chicago & Portland both had their marathons today on 10/10/10. Valerie at Vegan by Valerie and Kris (@SeeKrisRun) both ran – so proud of you guys!! The Columbus Half Marathon & Marathon is next Sunday, 10/17/2010. I am disappointed that I not able to participate this year, but I will be cheering all of those who are. The weather looks like it is going to cooperate at this point in time – Partly sunny with a high of 68 and low of 45. Nice!

Speaking of running, I have been working towards getting back to “normal” training since completing my “Return to Running” program. I ran 19 miles this past week and am feeling great!! I hope to get up to and then maintain approximately 25 miles per week until I start marathon training again in January.

Sunday – Rotisserie chicken, sweet potato puffs, steamed green beans & salad

Monday – Salmon, parmesan pea risotto, sugar snap peas & salad

Tuesday -Chicken tacos, refried beans, roasted corn & salad

Wednesday – Spaghetti with meat sauce (ground turkey), roasted broccoli & salad

Thursday -Turkey Burgers, baked steak fries, zucchini & salad

Friday – Happy 65th birthday celebration for my father-in-law, Mack

Saturday -Mini-pizzas (make your own) and salad
