If I would have ONLY known…

25 Jan

The Portland Tri Club is doing a January motivation contest. You submit your weekly mileage and then the top 3 people in each category(swim, bike, run, and club workouts) win prizes. I never really thought about winning. We are 3 weeks into the month. I’m 6th in the biking category. I wish I would have known I was a contender.

My friend Sherrie is trying to win the running category. She has been on her “happymill” every morning. I should have taken her lead and biked EVERY where I went. That was about 50% of the motivation to bike Broadway the other day!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it is too late now since it is the 25th but I have biked just about everywhere this week so time will tell!!

In other news: Yesterday was National Peanut Butter Day. WHAT!!??!! How did I not know that?! My friend Erica texted me in the afternoon to WISH ME a Happy National PB Day! Then I saw it over on Run, Eat, Repeat also.
I WISH I knew why I loved peanut butter so much. Maybe because it goes along with CHOCOLATE so well. I really wanted to make cookies then decided that I did not need them! I was planning on getting 12 1 cookie at the grocery store. By the end of the day all hell had broken loose.

Here is how my day went. It all started at the office this morning!

I decided to nix the cookie idea and hit Voodoo Donuts. They have a chocolate oreo peanut butter donut that is to die for!!
Then I came up with a way more LUDICRIOUS idea! I texted Jessica. I said I am coming over with a plan and not to be MAD at me when she hears it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

We hit up New Season and got some supplies. We were going to celebrate National Peanut Butter Day with vengeance!

We quickly ate dinner and then got to the good stuff!!
Who can guess which bowl was mine and which bowl was Jessica’s?? To say the least we had an AWESOME dessert!!
Happy National Peanut Butter Day…A DAY LATE!! It was definitely WORTH celebrating! Thanks Jessica for helping me execute MY PLAN!!

Who else celebrated National PB day? How did you celebrate?

    I would have celebrated had I known. I’ll eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup tomorrow in honor of NPBD! Remind me next year so I don’t forget.
