A Little Bit of This…and That

This post is typical of how I feel by Friday, all over the place.  I feel like I blink and days, weeks and months go by…This week has been a doozy, and I’m not sure why it went by so slowly. The weather was finally nice!

This weekend is the base air show.  If anyone local is looking for something to do, it’s open to the public.  There are going to be several flight demonstrations with both fighter planes as well as tanker aircraft.  It should be a lot of fun. It’s open to anyone military or not.

While we will be attending part of the Air Show, my husband and I are making the trek up tomorrow morning to Jersey City to run the Newport 10k.  To be honest, my legs don’t feel that great to race but what can you do.  We are going to have a great time seeing friendly faces like Danielle, Amelia, Ashley and Erica Sara.  The field is fast, and if I can make the top 10 in my age group, I’ll be ecstatic. Is there anyone else going?

I’ve also been cooking a lot more.  LOLZ blog will probably never be a foodie blog, but I’ve been learning to cook more easy and quick recipes.  We are both out of the house a lot, so the last thing either my husband and I want to do is cook when we get home.

Bacon egg quiche

My first attempt at the Mini Bacon Quiche

I recently ordered The Athletes Fix on Velopress and tried my hand at some of the recipes.  My favorite recipe so far has been the bacon tart. It’s quick, healthy and easy.  My husband was also shocked at how good they are.

The book itself is great for any athlete.  It dissects different diets and food intolerances.  I’m fortunate not to have any food intolerances, but my husband recently discovered he might be lactose intolerant.  It’s an easy read, and there are a lot of runner-friendly recipes.

Questions for you:
What are your thoughts with all of the drug allegations?
What are you up to this weekend?

  1. I love Friday the 13th! 13 has always been my lucky number, so I just embrace it and enjoy when it hits on a Friday! It probably helps that I’m not superstitious either! Sometimes all you can do is go with the random thoughts and let the post go where it may! Have a great weekend and a great race tomorrow Hollie!

  2. Have a good race Tomarow,be safe.

    As for drug allegation, if it doping,im 1000% against u,,if an athlete is caught the should be banned for life from the sport , it a shamed to see it in our sport,it make our sport(distance running) with a bad taste and shamed our sport.

  3. I’m glad to be home this weekend. I was out of town last weekend visiting family and the weekend before visiting a hospital. Those do not make for very fun weekends. Today I was off work and slept in, went on a shakeout run, and bummed around the house. That’s fun to me!

    Have fun at the base air show! We used to go to an air show in Florence when we lived there… as for here, I don’t know if they do that in Charleston, but they do have the base 5K in June and they have family day and things like that. My military friends tell me.

    Good luck in your 10K!

  4. That bacon quiche looks so good! Where is the recipe from?! There was an air show near my house that I wanted to go to, but I figured it’s probably too loud for a baby. And there’s no shade at the air field either. But they are so much fun! I think you posted on IG about the race but I didn’t read the captions! I’ve been scrolling through today- I’ll have to go see how you did 🙂
