Gonna do it again

I'm running again. I picked it up a couple weeks ago and hit the 5K goal last Wednesday. I didn't enter an actual 5K, just ran the distance around Marsh Lake. Training up to that distance took the least amount of time this year, compared to other years.

Must have been all the dodgeball I played this winter.

3 weeks ago (when it was 60, before it was 25 again) I walked it and ran the middle mile. Next time out I warmed up/cooled down the first and last 1/2 mile and ran the rest. Ran the whole route a week ago, then bumped it to 4 miles last night.

Last year my goal was to train up to 10K distance by the 4th of July. This year it's 10K by the end of May. Maybe try and get that time to under an hour by the 4th...

Best Sammich ever

I can't take credit for coming up with this recipe, but I can take credit for making it and eating it, which, if you missed it, was delicious.

Grilled Ham and Egg Sandwich

2 slices Sourdough bread
Sopressata (Italian salami)
Fresh mozzarella
1 egg
basil leaves
red onion thinly sliced

Fry the salami in a wide shallow pan (big enough to fit the whole sammich in later) just until the fat renders. Remove from pan and set aside. Fry the egg in the oil sunnyside up, remove and set aside. Layer the bread with the salami, prosciutto, mozzarella, onion and toast - right back in the same pan - on both sides. Add fried egg and a couple basil leaves to the bottom half, slice and serve.

Great with a crisp Pinto Grigio.
