We Are In!

This past Monday at 5 p.m. local time, first-come, first-serve registration for the Covered Bridges Half Marathon opened.  Race organizers predicted the race would close in 30 minutes.  It actually closed within 19 minutes!  I'm excited to report that all my friends and I got in!  It was an orchestrated effort and I was glad that no one was left behind.

I need to make this a short post.  Life is crazy right now!  Work is pretty intense.  In a very challenging and interesting way!  My very first court appearance as an attorney will take place on Thursday.  And I had a date last night.  He was very nice, funny and intelligent.  We are going out again on Saturday and I'm looking forward to it.

I'm happy to share that I had a really great 8 mile run yesterday.  I felt strong throughout the entire run and staying in the heart rate zone was rather liberating compared to always being worried about pace.  This morning's 5 mile run was more social, but I continued to feel strong.  A nice running week so far!

Here are some daily totals.
Monday Totals:
Eats: 1975 calories (20% protein, 55% carbs, 25% fat) - 269 g carbs

Tuesday Totals:
Eats 1998 calories (13% protein, 63% carbs, 24% fat) - 299 g carbs

Men: a nice first date

Have a great Wednesday!
