Whats for dinner?

Last night i tried out a new chili recipe and it was sooo good! We will be eating it again tonight, it was so good ::)It is by Emeril Lagasse and you have to try this recipe!
It is not at all your traditional chili recipe, but you will love it! It has lots of beans and i used ground chicken rather than the hamburger. Top it off with a little shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions and fresh cilantro.

Yummy! Hope yall enjoy :)

I finished my first half marathon on Sunday! Yay! A finish line has never been as exciting as this! The weather was perfect in Chicago! It was so fun with all the people! Everyone was really fired up! So happy i got the opportunity to do this! Thanks to all who wished me good luck!

Here is a picture of the four of us who ran it together....

Crunch Time!

I have had a lot of anxiety the last few weeks and now that this week has hit i am very nervous! I am running the Chicago Half Marathon this weekend! This will be my first one! I am not a runner, but just decided to challenge myself with this race! I have been running all summer, trying to get ready! I have had a few setbacks with my running from injuries and getting sick for a few weeks! I know i have worked really hard to get were i am, but i am still so nervous! I am hoping for some cool weather in Chicago, but not too windy!!! My parents are coming to watch it and my little sister and husband will be running with me so it should be a good time!
I hope i can finish, wish me good luck :)
