A Riddle For You and the Ray-Ban Winner!

Here is a riddle for you:

Q:  What is so incredibly delicious, full of chicken/beans/pico/chips/guac/lettuce/cheese, comes with an amazing tortilla and has the best mango salad dressing to top it with?

A:  Costa Vida salad (pretty much the same thing as my beloved Cafe Rio salad).

My mom picked me up from the airport and we drove straight to dinner and my dad met us there.  Very good to be home.

We went to my parents’ house after and I was able to already see some of my favorite people in the whole wide world.  I babysat for them throughout my teen years and then I was their personal assistant during college… let me tell you something, they are the coolest bosses in the whole world.

Greasy bangs are a product of leaving for the airport approximately 21 minutes after getting home from teaching a spin class yesterday morning.

I think that Brooke is going to have a miserable time here with my family.

I am going to try to do a long run this weekend, but we’ll see how that works out.

Dinner was a Cinco de Mayo Mexican feast!

Mexican feasts are the best.
My boyfriend and I have been perfecting our mexican bean dish for 6 months now and we’ve finally cracked it!

It’s marathon weekend in Pittsburgh! I’m aiming for a big PR for my second marathon and I’m getting so excited… and nervous. It’s been the only thing on my mind for days!

My parents, and almost all of my huge extended family, are within about 30 minutes of us. I love it.

My parents live in B’ham, AL. Pretty much the coolest and most beautiful city I’m the south. Swear. Speaking of the south….it’s 37 degrees here this morning! What?! I’m kinda glad I don’t have a race today. The chill did make for some great soup weather last night!

Reply

Brooke looks like she’s having a blast! Last time I went out for dinner was last week to a Thai place! I love thai food!

Reply

My parents live in Miami. But I wish they lived closer to me! Have fun this weekend. I have a long run on the schedule for tomorrow….can’t wait!

Reply

My rents & in-laws are about 5 hours away in Atlanta, so we do mini road trips all the time. Enjoy time with your fam! We’re headed to farmer’s market this a.m. for season’s first fresh veggies! Yum!

Reply

Aw, glad you’re having a great time with your family and getting to visit all of your favorite places in Utah. I’m sure Brooke will have a blast getting to spend time with them, especially her cousins. I went out to dinner at one of my favorite Mexican restaurants last night since I have to work on Sunday and won’t be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo then. It was delicious!

Reply

I know it never gets old for you to hear this, but your daughter is just the sweetest thing. My parents live an hour away from me so not far at all. I’m running a marathon tomorrow, so the carbo load dinner was at home last night. Wish me luck :) Have a fabulous time with your family.

Reply

So many ids in one place! Haha.

I was supposed to have a long run this morning, but 1. I’m sleep deprived 2. I’m dehydrated 3. I think I’m getting sick and 4. my foot’s not completely healed…….I think I’m going to be postponing that run. -.-

Reply

So glad you made it to Utah safely! Have fun with your sister!! I’m thinking this weekend will be a rest weekend :-)

Reply

Yea! Good to see the cousins :).

My parents live in salt lake right now, overlooking the conference center on west temple. Amazing views of temple square! I love it, because they have an extra room, &i can stay there if I have something going on in slc.

Doing a fundraiser race today with the fam. Yea!

Reply

I have a 5k race tomorrow morning which should be interesting considering how sore my butt/hips are from my Jillian Michaels workout yesterday!

Reply

My parents are in South Dakota. Brooke is going to have a blast with her cousins.

Reply

My parents live in Boston and even though it’s only 3 hours away it still seems too far! I’m doing a short 3 miles with a friend this afternoon- it’s supposed to be 70 and sunny!

Last night we visited Cafe Rio down the road from the IM St George finish line before volunteering at the IronKids run. Cafe Rio hit the “just right” spot in the tummy!

My folks live (for now) in Northern Virginia, but they’ve lived all over. #GoNavy

A week long slumber party? Oh my gosh that sounds amazing!!! Brooke will be in heaven hanging out with the “big kids”! No racing for me this weekend- my first one off in over a month and I’m finally on a break for the first time in 9 months.

Reply

My parents live about 9 min away from me, in the same town. It’s nice to have them near by.

This weekend I run my first half marathon! I have hardly run at all this week due to being exhausted from work, so hopefully my body will be able to pull it together. Now to make sure I am well-fueled!

Reply

My parents live in Kansas City, MO and they (and my grandparents and little brother) will be here in 2 weeks for my law school graduation!

My parents live about an hour away from me…and I’m actually going to see them this afternoon! Definitely excited.

Your sister’s hair is gorgeous! I wish I could grow my hair out that long and have it look so amazing! Brooke looks like she is having a ball with the kids. Too sweet. My parents live in South Thomaston, Maine. The same town as me a mile and a half down the road. I am doing a long run tomorrow with the bestie… 8ish probably.

Reply

We actually ate in last night because tonight we get to go out with family cuz my mom’s in town!!!! My parents live in WA but she’s visiting UT. So glad you’re having fun with family=)

Glad you and Brooke made it safely! Hope you guys have an awesome time with your family :) I’m spoiled. My parents live about a 20 minute drive from me so I can see them whenever I like. Happy Saturday, Janae!

Reply

Aww, Brooke looks so so happy! My parents live in Chicago and I probably won’t see them until August at the earliest :( I just did a short run today because I was STARVING and it was getting hot out so I had to get it in.

Reply

I love going home too! My Mom lives in Colorado and my Dad Maine. Me? I’m headed to Montana soon. But, next week my whole family is coming to watch me graduate with my master’s.

I have a running question! I’m training for a half marathon and my long runs are increasing by one mile each week, this week was 8 miles..
At what mileage do you start icing?? I have never iced my feet or taken an ice bath and am not sure if I need to start or if that’s more for longer than 13 miles..?

Reply

Personally, I take an ice bath if I feel my body needs it- it could be after a 10miles+ long run or after a short speed workout… Yesterday I ran 12 miles but I was feeling ok so I didn’t take one… And I ice ony if something hurts- my hip has been bothering me for over a month now and I Always make sure to ice it as much as I can. I always use a foam roller after my runs and after a tough run, I like to wear copression socks to speed up the recovery process. I’m not an expert though, that’s just what works for me ;) GOOD LUCK ON YOUR HALF!!!

Reply

Thank you!! I definitely need to start foam rolling

I did go out to dinner last night!! I went to Panera, which has been my go-to place during Finals. I got the same order I always get – french onion soup and the sierra turkey sandwich with no onions. Meal of champions!

Reply

Parents are in Wisconsin… and while I love them dearly I never plan on moving back.
We went to a new and new-to-us restaurant last night… kind of a south american vibe and it was FABULOUS. I mean there was guac, how could it not be?

Reply

I usually like cafe rio better but I just learned an interesting fact. A little girl my nephew is friends with has a corn allergy, so she can’t eat preservatives. From her mom we learned that cafe rio is loaded with preservatives and costa vida does not use them. Definitely makes me want to start supporting costa vida more now!

Have fun with your family!

Reply

I personally like Costa better but most of my friends prefer Rio so we end up there more often than not.
My parents live in SLC! I opted to do Jillian Level 3 instead of a run today. Feel the burn! I went to a Mexican restaurant last night that is a local favorite. Janae, I think you’d really, really like it :)

Reply

Brooke looks SO HAPPY to be with her cousin!! :) That’s just too cute. My parents live an hour away so it’s like a mini vacay every time we go there. Love it! :) We made dinner last night- beef tacos with onions and chipotle taco seasoning and romaine lettuce and it was so goooood. I’ll probs have more for lunch today!

My parents live in Italy , where I grew up, and I live in NYC. Now, that’s far, but after six years I got used to it!!

Taking a break from racing this weekend. Had my long run Yesterday- 12 beautiful miles along the Hudson River! -2 weeks to my half Marathon! So nervous!

I was so tired Yesterday that all I could bring myself to “cook” was chicken patties, guacamole, reduced guilt Mac and Cheese and kettle corn… all from Trader Joe’s of course!!!

Hope you’ll have a great time in Utah!!!
