Three Things Thursday

1.  This morning I woke up at 9!  Wow, go me!  I ate my usual oatmeal, drank coffee, and had some water.  I got ready and ran an easy 4 miles with an average 9:18 min/mile pace.  I knew I needed to take it easy because I have 9 miles scheduled for tomorrow.  The weather wasn't too harsh.  It was probably almost 80 degrees but there was a nice breeze.

2.  This afternoon, I went shopping around and wandered into a running shop.  I ended up not buying anything but I did learn about a really cool running group for women.  They meet each week for a 3-5 mile run.  I told the lady who works there that I'd love to try it out so I'm going to meet them tomorrow.  I'm planning on getting about 4 or 5 miles done before they meet and then finish my long run with the group.  She told me that she is training for a marathon in January also and keeps about my same pace so we talked about getting together for some long runs! 

3.  I made what I call "Supreme Spaghetti" tonight.  I chopped broccoli, squash, carrots, red pepper, green pepper, and tomatoes.  Then I steamed the veggies while my whole grain noodles were boiling.  I also heated up a little tomato sauce.  Then I mixed it all together and added garlic powder, salt, and pepper and topped with a little mozzarella cheese.  My husband says it's his second favorite food I've ever made (right behind the pizza)!  I'm glad it turned out good because I really wasn't sure what I was doing!

What are you having for dinner?  Do you have any vegetarian recipes to share?
Enjoy your evening!
