Photos of the Week, Slooshing Stomach + Last Week’s Runs

One of Revel Canyon City Half Marathon best race perks is that all their photos can be downloaded for free. No screenshots with the proof image below. I used this app to make a collage of race pics on my phone. Did I mention this was a net downhill course?

Random running issue of the week, one thing that often bothers me while I am running is a sloshing stomach. Funny thing is it only happens on Saturday or Sunday runs. I thought it was over-hydrating right before but after a bit more research discovered my delicious coffee is causing the problem. It doesn’t hurt or anything, but it’s LOUD. Ellen and Kathy always comment on the noise. Do I give up my morning coffee to stop the sloshing noise? Meh, I’m drinking hazelnut coffee while I type, and I’m about to go to run club. Sorry guys.


I haven’t made stuffed squash since 2011Last week I got a Kuri Squash in my Farm Box so I stuffed it with quinoa, sausage and parmesan. It was so so so good. I cooked the squash for a good hour before filling it and cooking it some more. The squash was so buttery. Click on the photo for the recipe!

Last week Ellen and I took advantage of the Massage Envy complementary leg massages. I have a terrible shorts tan. Found this pic on facebook.

Have I mentioned how much I love oatmeal? Chocolate, banana, blueberries, sunflower seed butter, cinnamon and a sprinkle of granola.

Here’s what I ran last week:

  • Monday: Four Mile Run with Back on My Feet
  • Tuesday: Track Workout with RunMDR (3 x 300, 2 x 400, 2 x 800, 2 x 400, 8 strides) -My legs were TIRED.
  • Wednesday: Four Mile Run with Back on My Feet
  • Thursday: Off. Went to Happy Hour and to go see Mockingjay with Brent, Alaina and Jared
  • Friday: Six Mile Run (Watchless and first alone run in FOREVER)
  • SaturdayWestridge Trail Run with RunMDR
  • Sunday: Leaving in 20 minutes. Planning on two loops with Lululemon!

Originally Brianna, Marta, Ellen and I had talked about running Westridge Trail on Saturday. We had to reschedule because of friends being in town, sickness, the USC/UCLA game so I decided to run with Run MDR, and where do we go?! Westridge! It was beautiful, and I can’t wait to go back with the girls. Brianna, I am so jealous of your weekday trail runs. Can you please write a blog post on your favorite trail runs in the city? This is my official request.
