So you know how I’m training for my first marathon?

Yeah, who’s bright idea was this? Who in their right mind actually pays to run 26.2 miles!?! Apparently I was not in my right mind, because I signed up, and now I am sort of regretting it. I know I can just not do it, but now my husband is also signed up, so I feel committed.

Speaking of my husband signing up for the marathon… he has never signed up for any event in the past 11 1/2 years we have been married. I’ve always been the one doing triathlons, running events, workout videos, biking, etc. etc. etc. While he does nothing. Then, all of a sudden he decides to get his butt off the couch and guess what? He’s crazy faster than me.

I know I should be super happy for him, and I am, but there is still a little part of me that is maybe a tad jealous? bitter? I don’t know…

So now I’ve decided to try to lose some weight and hopefully that will make me faster?

Again, not sure why I decided running a marathon was a bright idea. UGH!

But I will tell you one thing. Having this gorgeous salad nearly every day has been awesome.

I packed this salad with tons of superfoods like spinach, kale, almonds, blueberries and of course, avocado!

Then there is the Lemon Poppy Seed dressing, which was inspired from my Avocado Citrus Salad, that I drizzle over the whole thing. It’s incredible.

Seriously.

The creamy avocado and sweet blueberries go perfectly with the tangy feta cheese and tart dressing.

It’s a flavor party in your mouth.

If you wanted to add some extra protein to this salad, a few slices of grilled chicken breast or cooked shrimp would be perfect.

But as it is, this salad is filling and delicious!

No marathon needed to enjoy this one! 😉

  1. Men just suck in that regard. I refuse to workout with my husband any more because of this. Me? Goes to the gym 5-6 days a week and lives in a constant state of soreness. Him? Works out once in a blue moon then goes for a run with me and acts like freakin' Meb Keflezighi. Ugh. In other news, this salad looks baller. ;)
  2. Oh my gosh - good luck with the marathon! And about the husband...ugh. Men. Ben can run 1/2 mile two days in a row and be back in the shape he wants to be in. It's so annoying. And this salad is making all my dreams come true. I'll just sit here and eat a salad while you go ahead and run that marathon. ;)
