Weekend Run and Family Party

Happy Sunday evening everyone!

My small change challenge must have worked last week because I was down 3.4 lbs which is good because I was up 3 lbs the week before!!  It's a never ending cycle!!  lol

This weekend was my first long run of my marathon training schedule.  It was 6 miles.  I decided to run with CARA (Chicago area runners association).  In my area, it meets at 6:50 am!!  That's early but since it was the first one of the training, I didn't want to miss it. I wanted to meet everyone.

And can I say, it's really nice to run with a group of people.  I think it will be handy when we are up in miles, any of the long double digit miles!!  There are people that keep the pace for you so you can train at a certain pace.  It should be interesting to run with them.  They also have water stations and Gatorade throughout and some food afterwards.

Today we had an early Father's Day celebration and b-day celebration for my grandfather.  My dad picked the meal...Chinese takeout!  lol.  I guess it reminds him of his childhood.  I made pina colada cupcakes from Gina's blog and key lime pie. Click on the above link for Gina's recipe.  They were really good!!

The key lime pie is a low fat recipe you may have seen before.
1 box sugar free jello
2 - 6 oz. containers of light key lime yogurt
1 - 8 oz. container of cool whip (I used fat free)
1/4 cup water
Reduced fat graham cracker crust

Boil the water and then dissolve jello
Mix in yogurt
Fold in cool whip
Pour into crust and refrigerate for a couple hours

Pictures please!!  Well, I tried to post the pictures and was having issues!!  I'm tired of trying, so no pictures!!

Hope your weekend was great.
