The Fairest Week In Review: 6/24

JENN: So how has the running been? MOON: Not too bad, how about you? JENN: Last week was actually surprisingly good. I wound up covering about 40 miles over the course of the week, which is 7 – 10 more than my average. Mind you, it helped that it was a no-ballet week. Ballet starts again today, so I doubt I’ll be repeating such high numbers. MOON: That is many miles. JENN: Yeah, and some of ’em were a little faster than my recent sub par times! And some were slower. But whatever. I even tried the speedwork I talked about last week. I’m...

In Which Jenn Receives A WDW Gift

Hey, remember that time I helped my boss plan her Walt Disney World vacation? And she invented WWJGD? Well, she’s tragically not my boss anymore, but I did have breakfast with her last week and she brought me back a present from the trip! How awesome is this travel mug? I love the Mary Blair-esque design. I don’t generally drink coffee unless I’m at a latte-producing coffee shop, but this’ll be perfect if I ever want to build myself a yogurt parfait to go. But most of all, I love that I earned it by telling my boss which...

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/17

MOON: Ooookay. Tell me about your runs! JENN: They have been relatively decent! HUGE factor: the air conditioning the gym finally kicked in. Air conditioning not on? Crazy humid, runs suck. Air conditioning on? WHEEEEEE I CAN RUN. MOON: Ha, I realized that too in the beginning of the week. Our air conditioner seems to be spotty. Sometimes on and glorious or just not at all. JENN: I’m still working outdoor runs into my schedule, but it’s hard to convince myself to get up early. Just not my bag. Unfortunately the temperatures of late have been way too high for afternoon running. Mind...

In Which Jenn Makes The Cheater’s Veggie Sandwich

For this cheater’s recipe, you don’t even have to use a microwave. In fact, in the spirit of my IKEA assembly instruction foods, I’m essentially going to tell you: make a caprese sandwich. Only a little better. With More Veggies, you can feel More Healthy, plus More Fueled with carbs from the bread and protein from the cheese. You can add the pesto spread back in for the bread if you want, but I swapped in olive oil and spices for heart-healthy fats. Hotcha! The Cheater’s Veggie Sandwich You will need: Two slices of good mozzarella One tomato One...

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/10

JENN: How did your training go this week? MOON: Well, I ran every day! It was good. JENN: Awesome!I ran outside a bunch this week. I’m getting a LITTLE better at it, anyway. I’m not ready to let go of the treadmill just yet, but the outdoors is growing on me. I just hope I DON’T come to prefer running outside because that’ll make indoor winter running so sad! I’ll need to find a coping mechanism. I can’t answer this question, but I like that Captain Picard is asking it. MOON: I prefer the outdoors and winter sucks, but winter sucks regardless.The treadmill will...

In Which Jenn Ponders the Lack of Brinner in WDW

Walt Disney World is the place where dreams come true, and this goes for all things culinary. Wish fulfillment: giant cupcakes, cuisines from all around the world, rivers of plastic cheese. And yet there is one thing it simply does not offer. I’m talkin’ ’bout brinner. Seriously, think about it. What breakfast items will WDW sell you past 11AM? Sleepy Hollow has waffle sandwiches and a waffle dusted with powdered sugar, but nary a bottle of maple syrup or a sausage link to be seen. The AMC in Downtown Disney has a waffle ice cream sundae, but that’s dessert...

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/03

MOON: I JUST RAN 3.5 MILES JENN: YEEEEEEEAH TELL ME ABOUT YOUR 3.5 MILES MOON: Well, generally uneventful. There were awkward repairmen in the gym all up on my treadmill while I was running. JENN: Oh, yes, that’s always a little weird. MOON: You’re probably thinking, “3.5… whoopee.” Buuuut, I haven’t run since my return from Israel. Yesterday I found myself really missing it. JENN: Hey, anything is better than nothing! 😀 Just gotta build it back up. MOON: It won’t be too hard, I think. Last week 1 miles was easy (I seriously had like 8 minutes to run before an appointment). Today 3.5...
