Birthday post!

So I don't have anything exciting and running related today,  but I do have these guys:

My dad's coworker brought him SO many cucumbers. You can't tell from the picture, but these are massive. I got 3. So now, the challenge becomes, what on earth do I do with these?

 This is almost 1 cucumber, turned into the most amazing salad ever. Well, it will be, I just haven't eaten it yet because I wanted the flavors to meld first. Cucumber, cherry tomatoes, feta, vinegar, oil, onion, salt and pepper and italian seasoning. Yum! It is part of my lunch today. One of the other cukes was turned into a much simpler salad, just cucumber, oil, vinegar, dill and onion. It will also be delicious.

Third one presented a bit of a challenge...a girl can only eat so much cucumber salad (that's so not true for me, but I was still feeling adventurous). Google told me tzatziki would be cuke friendly. I found a recipe and it turned out... eh. It's very pretty, and tastes good enough, but it doesn't blow me away. A lot of the recipes had mint in them, so I think that might have been missing from mine. It'll still get eaten though, on salads and as a veggie dip.

Ran 3.5 miles last night in the pitch black because of a rain storm that lasted all afternoon. I kind of love running in the dark, so I should probably get some reflective stuff (super cool vest?!). Also, it's going to be dark earlier in the coming weeks, so even if I'm not running late, it's more likely to be dark.

Today is a 12 or 13 mile long run on the treadmill. I said it, so it must be true. It's also my birthday! Yay!
