The professional photos from Flying Pig were released online yesterday. I hope you’re ready for a laugh, because you are about to get one!
Awkward post-race photo with huge grin and medal? Check!
Completely delirious on my way to the finish line? Check! Do I look excited to almost be done, or what?
(also, that guy behind me is really concerned about his time – I hope he made his goal!)
So. Close. Almost. There.
Alright, let’s scoot back to the beginning, where I clearly already look like I’m in pain.
Ha!! I wish the “F” wasn’t covering my face – it’s priceless.
Smile for the camera!
Here I am mid-race.
Lots of profound thoughts going through my head. Obviously.
My friend Mary’s fiance was also able to score some good ones too. Well…. good ones of Kelly.
I, on the other hand, need to work on not getting so excited when I see people I know during a race.
Especially when there’s a camera.
oh, boy. that’s just creepy.
You are welcome.

Have any more to add?
Summer is just around the corner (or really already here in Florida – it’s over 90 outside) and when I saw a caprese salad on special at Publix on Monday, I knew I wanted to replicate it at home.
I bought fresh mini balls of mozzarella and seasoned them with salt and dried basil. The mini balls were served over a freshly sliced tomato and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and a handful of walnuts.
I missed this combination. The tomato was perfectly ripe – I see a sandwich replica of this for tomorrow.
On the side I reheated the last of Monday night’s roasted potatoes and okra.
A quick lunch is a good lunch.
