One Hundred Thousand

(If this was Jeopardy!, I could respond with, "What is not my salary?")

When I opened up Blogger to start my post today, I found quite a lovely surprise!

BLWB hit 100,000 pageviews! I know it's child's play for some, but when I started writing a year and a half ago I never would have thought I'd continue almost daily for so long! I really love this little blog, and I'm so grateful to you for reading. THANK YOU!!!

I'm going to keep tonight's post short in an effort to hit the hay much earlier than yesterday. We ended up sleeping in this morning (again) and completed our four miles after work--not nearly as relaxing of an evening as we would have liked, to say the least. Between grading, test-writing, running, cooking,  and eating dinner, the night absolutely flew. We even kept the TV off to encourage productivity. I'm ready for a much more mellow night tomorrow.

Today's four mile run really felt good! We ran to UCLA and back, almost exactly four miles roundtrip, and it was a perfect way to chat, hear about each other's day, and get outside in the smog fresh air. I need to foam roll tonight, and I'm already dreading those tight spots. Tomorrow we'll be up for an early two-mile speed run, according to our 10-K plan.

And tonight's simple dinner was an Ina Garten spinach-feta dish along with whole wheat macaroni and cheese (a la 100 Days of Real Food). Thank goodness it was an easy one; I was ready to put my feet up!

Gruyere and cheddar combo--a definite winner

Deliciously creamy

And with that, I'm off to sleep. Thanks again for reading along and for getting me to a "big" (for me!) milestone!

What's a recent accomplishment you're proud of? 
Come on, don't be shy--toot that horn!
