young alumni collaborative.

I really wanted ice cream this afternoon.  I mean, I really, really wanted ice cream.  It’s just a quick hop across the street, so close and convenient.  I was strong and resisted.  Instead, I tried the new lemon Chobani and let me tell you, it was wicked good.  It just may become my favorite flavor.

But, I can’t make any promises there won’t be ice cream tomorrow.

young alumni collaborative.

After work, I headed to the Young Alumni Collaborative, an event for the Young Alumni Council (the group with my alma mater I went to a meeting for last month).  I’ll be honest, even though I had registered and paid for the event, I was so tempted to skip it, put on my sweats, and zone out in front of the TV for the rest of the night.

I did end up going and I’m glad I did. I met some great new people and reconnected with others I haven’t seen in awhile – including one girl who I have known since I was in 5th grade and haven’t seen in years.

Plus, we all know a highlight of events like this:  food and booze.  Come on, you know it’s true.

There was a great selection of food.  I loaded up on the fruit (!!!), had a bit of cheese, some crackers, a couple tiny pickles, and some nuts.  Picture this plate twice because I definitely went back up for seconds and had a pretty similar variety.

And a beer.  Who needs wine when they’re serving Founders, my favorite brewery in town?

I ended up cutting out of the event about an hour or so early so I could go get one last run in before Saturday’s 5k.  I hopped on a treadmill, turned on The Big Bang Theory (not the greatest episode tonight, in my opinion), and off I went.  I did 3.1 miles in 33:40 (10:52 pace).  It didn’t feel like my strongest run, but I could tell that since it was my fourth consecutive day out, I was feeling it.  A lot.  The first 2 miles felt good, but I faded really fast after that.

I’m off to go crash into bed!  I feel like I’ll sleep really good tonight!

hey my friend and I are looking for somewhere good to eat on either Saturday night or Sunday but Marie Catrib’s closes at 4 on sat and isn’t open on sundays 🙁 Do you have an recommendations for some good places that are healthy and possibly have awesome veggie burgers too?! Thanks 🙂

Stella’s!!!! – if you go there, know that the address is listed as being on Commerce, but you have to enter through the back (sounds shady, I know, but it’s a totally legit, cool place!).

The Green Well is great, too. I don’t think they have veggie burgers, but they have a lot of other awesome veggie options.

I’ve actually been to Stella’s before, but just at night to the bar! I didn’t know it was a restaraunt though!
