Happy run

I’m going to say something I haven’t been able to say in quite some time so prepare yourself.

I had a good run today, and it’s about freaking time.

It may have something to do with the weather (it’s finally not 100 degrees outside. Or 80. Whatever.) It was a perfect running temperature for me-68 and sunny, but with a brisk breeze that wreaked of fall. It made me so happy. And for the first time in MONTHS, I had a mile that was sub 9 minutes, and I averaged about a 9:40 mile pace. Honestly, this is amazing to me since most of my runs have included many 10+ minute mile paces. Even the short ones.

And when I came back from the run and saw that Dennis had made some (store bought) fresh pasta, I was even more happy.


Topped with some Korean style ribeye and spinach


Dennis said he thought I wasn’t eating enough carbs, so he bought this pasta. How thoughtful of him. And after this dinner, I couldn’t thank him enough.


What’s your favorite way to eat pasta?

As much as I love a good homemade traditional pasta sauce, I would much rather not have a tomato based sauce if I don’t have to.


  1. YAY for awesome runs!!!!
    And I prefer the tomato-based pasta sauces :)

  2. Woot! So glad you had a good run . . . it restores your faith in running, aye?
    I am a big fan of pesto on my pasta : )

  3. Isn't it amazing how great a good workout feels? It always lifts me up. :)

  4. Oh, my goodness that meal looks delicious!
    I love tomato based pasta dishes. I recently found different kinds of pasta at Super Target so I got the basil pasta & topped it with tomato sauce. It was simple but yummy!
