Will Run for Beer

Have you entered my Peanut Butter & Co. giveaway yet?

Well this was another relaxing and fun weekend! Friday night I met up with Kara for a drink at Prizefighter. I hadn’t been yet but heard that they were known for their cocktails. Since it was rainy, I was feeling something nice and warming and opted for the Nuevo Viejo.

I could use some help on my cropping skills.

We met up with Nathan at Summer Summer for some delicious Thai food for dinner. And lucky for us, they had a good amount of options on the happy hour menu.. cheap date ๐Ÿ˜‰

Saturday was pretty laid back. It’s been raining constantly since Thursday so that doesn’t really make for fun times outside. We went out again for dinner to get out of the house and revisited The Bureau 510. I got the Mother Nature sandwich that I was eying the first time and it was great.

Grilled tofu, avocado, alfalfa, onion, red pepper spread, butter lettuce, lavash whole grain

I also got an awesome package from Caitlin and immediately had to dig into my goodies!

Cait Plus Ate Quest GoMacro Bar

She’s the best!

GoMacro Bar Trader Joes Peanut Butter M&Ms

Greek yogurt mixed with TJ’s chocolate coconut milk ice cream, topped with a sunbutter GoMacro bar and a few PB M&Ms. Perfect night time treat!

Yesterday I braved the rain and met up with Melissa, another Tone It Up-per, for the Park Chalet Beer 5K. Being sick all week, I considered skipping out because running in the rain may not be the best idea, but I was feeling much better so I decided to give it a go and I’m so glad I did!

We met some friends along the way

I’m usually not one for enjoying the rain, but there was actually something nice about it. Maybe because I was actually treating this as the fun-run that it was so I was just taking it all in. But that definitely deserved a brewskiย [or 2] afterward!

Park Chalet City Beer 5K Run

Cheers to finishing the run!

Those beers really did me in and I was happy to get home and into warm, dry clothes. Nathan took the reigns on dinner and roasted a beautiful bird! I added some roasted asparagus and naan on the side and heated up some korma sauce. Indian in a snap ๐Ÿ˜‰

Roast Chicken

He knows his way around a bird!

I could use some help with my chalkboard handwriting!

But now we won’t have to check the blog for reminders on the menu ๐Ÿ˜‰

Food for Thought

Have you ever done a race or fun run in the rain?

  1. I love the chalkboard! I love fancy craft cocktails and ALL those bars. Actually, I’ve only tried Quest – how are the others? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That chalkboard is so freaking adorable! I have this cute Lilly Pulitzer whiteboard and I may have to steal that idea from you & use it to write out my weekly meal plans in my new kitchen. Score! I’m so glad you loved the bars and that they made it to you safely. I was worried the envelope wouldn’t be sturdy enough. TBH I opened that sunbutter Macro Bar and threw it out because it smelled disgusting, haha. Did you like it?!
