Sorry I didn’t have time for a post on Thursday. Now I’m back, and I’ll try to keep posting through the weekend if I have some time during the tournament. After I got home from work Thursday, I spoke to my mom and she told me they didn’t need me at the first game until 7:15. Perfect, I thought. I got my butt on the treadmill and pumped out 4 miles in 38:19! Now I know that probably stinks compared to all you amazing runners out there, but for me, it’s a PR! Now onto some munchies.
Lunch today (Friday) was fantastic. Angie made a pesto spaghetti and I took some of that and mixed it with all my favorite veggies. I also cut up some Greek kefalotiri cheese. Never heard of it? Here’s the scoop, thanks to Wikipedia:
“Kefalotyri is a hard, salty yellow cheese made from sheep milk and/or goat’s milk in Greece and Cyprus.”
It’s by far my favorite Greek cheese, and the best cheese to eat with crackers. I’m thinking of snackin’ on some tomorrow, already!
One of the main purposes of the AHEPA Marrow Basketball Tournament is to get individuals to sign up and join the registry. It’s amazing how many people say no. Even when you tell them that if they end up becoming a match (extremely slim odds), the procedure is comparable to donating blood.
Today I manned the Be the Match table at Northeastern. While I only managed to recruit 7 new donors, I’m going to stay positive. Who knows, maybe one of these donors will end up saving someone’s life one day. My goal for the tournament is to get 30 donors. I hope we can make it work on Saturday and Sunday.
Since I skipped working out today, I’m going to try to get up early and do a bit of work on the elliptical. Nothing too crazy, but hopefully I can do it.
Day 10 – A picture of the person you do the most ****** up things with
Day 11 – A picture of something you hate
Yuck! I can’t stand lettuce. As a kid I hated leafy greens, and I had a particularly bad experience with shredded lettuce as a freshman in high school. Kind of gross, so be warned. I wasn’t feeling well one day, but I decided to hang out and play poker with some guy friends. One of the guys was going to a greasy spoon restaurant and he was going to pick up food for everyone. I opted for a burger since I was pretty hungry. Usually, I just eat burgers with ketchup only, but I forgot to mention this. He comes back with a loaded burger with lots and lots of shredded lettuce. Instead of just giving it to someone else, I devoured it since I was so hungry. Needless to say the food did not sit well, and I ended up in the bathroom throwing up. Still confused why I hate lettuce? Well, all I could see was shredded lettuce in the toilet. I was convinced I could smell the lettuce. It seriously scarred me, and I’m so grossed out by it now. Haha!
Day 12 – A picture of something you love
This amazing bakery is minutes away from our condo in Greece. They bake all their pastries and sweets daily, and I’ve never been disappointed. It’s name, “Melissa,” means bee. There are tons of bees around this place, and though I love sitting outside eating some baklava, you can be sure that the bees will try to get in one the good stuff too.
Now I’m off to sleep!
What’s something you’re loving right now…how about not liking at all? What are you looking forward to this weekend?
