A 5k and some Chobani

Last night I went to our local musichouse to see Enter the Haggis with a couple of friends.  It was a great show, but I snuck out around 12:30 because I had a 5k to run this morning.

America’s Greatest Heart Run and Walk in Utica, NY ends up raising over a million dollars every year toward heart disease research and prevention.   The event includes a 30k, and 10 miler, a 5 miler, a 5k, and a walk.  I’m going to mention again that this event takes place in CENTRAL NY.  The high today was 40 degrees (and that’s warm).

So anyways, I ran the 5k today with members of our local sheriff’s department.  Oddly enough, after our team picture, we made the LAST bus (which in retrospect, I think might have been the first walkers bus instead of a runner’s bus) to the start line.  Because of traffic, we didn’t even make it to the start line.  Our bus dropped us off 2 blocks after the start line, where we jumped off and ran into the mass of runners (all while getting yelled at by the local firemen).  It could NOT have looked good to have a group of runners with sheriff’s badges cutting the line!

Noentheless, it was fun.

When we got to the finish line, we saw our favorite bus, the CHOBANI BUS!  Last year, on APril 1st, my husband (then fiance) decided to cut his portions and eat better, and he started with Chobani.  He supplemented most of his meals with it, and it soon became an obsession for both of us.  We stopped by the booth to sample our favorites (Pineapple for me!) and then we took a few home (they have new flavors!!  I took a raspberry and a banana strawberry.)

I know there are a lot of greek yogurts out there, but my husband and I tried them all.  Choabani has excellent taste AND it’s priced so reasonably, you don’t have to feel any guilt over eating it!

Besides our nice run, the husband and I went up to the house to work.  He got to work finishing the installation of central vac, and I got to work wet/dry vaccing the ENTIRE HOUSE.

I’ve gotta finish this post though because tonight is the very last night of our regular season B league hockey.  Peace out.
