February 21, 2014
Happy Friday! This has been the longest week EVER!
Work has been a bit crazy with an upcoming migration (and no more tech speak), so I thought I would share Five Things I’ve Been Up to since it has been light on the blogging/social media front:
1. Signed up for the 2014 B.A.A Distance Medley
The B.A.A. Distance Medley is a three race series with a 5K (April 19, 2014), 10K (June 22, 2014), and Half Marathon (October 12, 2014). Two of my sisters live in Boston, MA so it would be good way to explore the city and visit them. Plus it will be my youngest sister’s first 5K!
2. Cooking up a Storm!
I’ve been pretty good about my 2014 goal of cooking a new recipe a month. I’ll be posting about my adventures in Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Chickpea Tomato Soup, and Zucchini Lasagna soon. Here is a sneak peak:
3. Foodie Pen Pals
After reading about Amanda’s January Foodie Pen Pal experience, I decided to sign up for a pen pal for the month of February. You can read more about it at the Lead Green Bean. I was paired up with Monica at Life is Sooo Good – I already sent Monica my box and I look forward to writing about my pen pal experience!
4. Running and Running!
In addition to the Virginia is for Lovers 14K, I’ve had two great six mile runs with my old roommate Rachel (plus tons of catching up of course!) Scenes from last week’s run in Rock Creek:
5. Celebrated Chinese New Year
My parents always host New Year’s dinner at their house. I get to see my brother, aunt/uncle, and my favorite cousins! Plus the food is pretty good.
Have a good weekend!
How has your month been?
What are your weekend plans?
