holy hills

Yesterday Ryan joined me for my 2nd meetup run.  We headed over to the Charlotte Running Company to meet up with the rest of the runners at 6:30pm.  We chit chatted before the start of the run and mostly everyone we spoke to commented on how "difficult" this course was.  Oh boy, just what I wanted to hear.  It was another very hot day in Charlotte, with temperatures in the mid 90's.  Once we started our run I knew that it was not going to be an easy one.  Luckily parts of the course were in the shade and even had a couple of houses on the route with their sprinklers on.  I definitely jumped into the stream of cold water once or twice.  Somehow I managed to finish the run with only one walking break, during one of the largest/longest hills.  According to my Garmin my run stats were:
  • 4.43 miles in 36:02 minutes, 8:08 pace
I'm so thankful that Ryan went to the meetup with me, even though he was still tired from our weekend trip.

Once we got home it was time to start dinner.  I haven't had a chance to go grocery shopping in a while so our dinner was a mess of whatever I could find in the pantry and freezer. 

The picture doesn't do the meal justice ... it was actually really good.  I made some orzo, corn, and some ground turkey.  The ground turkey was dressed up with fresh chopped sage, minced onion and garlic, a chopped apple, some dried cranberries, and some golden raisins.  I told Ryan it reminded me of thanksgiving ... probably from the fresh sage.
