Salmon and Triathlete Stomachs

I love hot weather. However, I do NOT love running in hot weather! When the forecast said “around 90 degrees” for yesterday, I knew I was going to have to wake up and run before work. The alarm went off at 4:30 and I was out the door at 5:01 on a glorious, early morning, 46 minute jaunt.

Our friend Andy invited PW to run in the afternoon and our plan was to get dinner afterwards. Because of that early morning jaunt, I didnt have to subject to myself to the insane temperatures. Instead I played chuck-it with this little lady:

How cute is she?

We played until she ended up like this inside, recovering:

(This is a creeper picture but you need to see it! Look how awesome their fireplace is!!

Alright so we decided to head a tried and true restaurant. We knew they could be core-friendly!

I was feeling fancy so I ordered the salmon with asparagus and a sweet potato. AND their delicious strawberry pecan salad to start.

This salad had grapes, strawberries, mandarin oranges, pecan, feta, on romaine with balsamic! I dont even like pecans but it was sooo good!

The salmon had some kind of maple glaze which crisped it right up. And the sweet potato came with cinna,onm sugar butter: YES PLEASE!. It was unbelievable!

I ended up eating about half (along with 3 pieces of bread!!!!) and brought the rest home for dinner tonight…Im pathetically excited for dinner!

After dinner, the guys stuck out their “guts” (read: they are so skinny they were really pushing their organs out) because they were so full

We were in Millbury, MA, but the view and the temperature (80!) when we left the restaurant made me feel like we were in Arizona:

Alright I am off to work! Have a faculty meeting after work and a 20 minute run (ohh dont know if Ill be able to fit that in 😉 )
