Sean and I completed our first 5k together this past weekend and we both had a great time! Considering Sean hasn’t run a 5k in about a year he did really great! We kept a steady pace and even though Sean swears the clock read 27:11 when we crossed the finish line, our actual finishing time was 27:16, but I’m still happy with it. Out of 124 women in my age group I came in 14th place and while I know 14th place isn’t necessarily something to brag about I’m very excited about this so let me have my moment. And there was a photographer that loved me for wearing my American flag as a cape and after we crossed the finish line he had me throw my fist in the air victoriously while piggy back on Sean, meanwhile Sean probably felt like he was going to shit himself having to hold me up, lol. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
After the race we wanted to check out this pub bus that we saw pull up before the race started, but much to my dismay it wasn’t open!!! Why was it even there?? Maybe it opened after we left. I took a picture in front of it anyway because I’ve never seen a pub bus.
In my efforts to counteract the amount of running I do every week, Sean and I made our first Sunday roast at home this past weekend. Sunday roasts here are amazing and while I don’t think I need to eat this every Sunday, we should probably make this a ‘once a month Sunday roast’.
Our roast consisted of a stuffed chicken and gammon wrapped in bacon thing, roasted potatoes, roasted parsnips, mashed carrots and swede mix, Brussels sprouts, Yorkshire puddings, and gravy. Let me just say that while I think they’re delicious, roasted potatoes here are strange. It’s basically it’s deep fried and then put in the oven to roast…so technically, isn’t that a french fry? Yes? No? I don’t know.
