My Secret Jar

by Meghann on January 11, 2010

What’s that in my drawer?

Why, its a jar of almond butter!

Who doesn’t keep almond butter in their drawer? It’s very convenient for days when you bring some orange slices as a snack and realize you need something a little more substantial.

Much better!

It’s also great when you are looking to spice up a plain ole tootsie roll. :)

Try it. You’ll like it. :)

For dinner I wanted a full, delicious meal.

I started by marinading some tofu in a yummy apricot sauce.

I baked the tofu at 420 for 60 minutes alongside a sweet potato.

Usually I microwave sweet potatoes, but I was oddly inspired to actually bake one in the oven this evening. It’s amazing the difference between a potato baked in the oven and one baked in the microwave. :)

Throw in some steamed asparagus and jalapeno cornbread and I had the complete meal I was looking for. :)

Perfecto.

Melissa was kind enough to bring me some Candy Cane Joe Joes all the way from SoCal!

I had two with a handful of strawberries for dessert.

Mmm… Candy Cane Joes Joes are delicioso!

After a couple frustrating hours or getting my garmin to connect to my computer, I was finally able to upload my splits from that marathon yesterday.

These numbers make me happy. :)

You can definitely see where I really slowed down around mile 20, but I am very proud of my sub-9:30 pace below that. :)

It’s really fun to compare those numbers to my last marathon.

I averaged almost a full minute faster per mile at my marathon on Sunday, compared to my marathon last May. Pretty crazy, right?

I plan to do a whole post in the near future on marathon training and my experience this time around compared to my previous marathon. I have some interesting musings I want to express.

Tomorrow morning I have a little treat for you, but you will just have to wait to see what that is. ;)

Good Night!
