So, while I'm waiting to get tired and while the laundry and the dishes get all clean, I figured I might do a little bloggin' about the week and share a recipe (and watch Adventure Time) since I'm all for multi-tasking!
This was week two of half marathon training and the mileage is still low. I'm hoping this week I can start adding on to the prescribed amount and maybe start some strength training. I wanted to do this last week, but it was hot and nasty and I at least got all my runs in:)

Cilantro-Lime Chickpea Salad
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
juice of half a lime
dash of red pepper flakes
teaspoon of minced garlic (I cheat and used the pre-minced kind)
half a banana pepper sliced in rings
chopped cilantro, a tablespoon or two, depends on preference.
drizzle of olive oil
Mix it all together and let it sit for at least an hour to blend all of the flavors together. I make mine the night before and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. After that the choice is yours. I eat them cold, added to salads, warmed up etc. I kind of want to blend them together to make something kind of hummus like (maybe without the banana peppers), but I don't think my blender would do very well.

Does anyone else have issues with Sunday night sleeping? Good night!
