Today I ran 4.5 miles and I felt so good! I was on fiyaaa. Well, I felt like it even though I only pulled a 47:18. Hey, it was still faster than my previous time!
After my run I ran drove home, showered and got ready for dinner with Jay! We went to Gia Nina’s, a little family owned Italian restaurant. I actually used to work there and they have expanded quite a bit since I did.
I started off with a glass of unsweetened iced tea.
My meal started off with a homemade garlic roll and some roasted red peppers. They make the peppers too! I know because I used to eat them by the spoonful 😀 I took a bite of the roll and gave the rest to Jay.
Next up was one of my favorite salads. So simple but the ingredients just taste so well together!
For my entree I had Vinnie’s special – my favoriteee! Penne with grilled chicken, roasted red peppers and spinach all with a balsamic dressing. The portion is monsterous and beileve it or not but it actually used to be bigger! I will get at least 2 more meals out of this.
Jay had a chicken parm sandwich.
We also had some live entertainment, which was a cross between hysterical and kind of annoying. The table next to us loved it and kept requesting more songs. He even played take me out to the ball game!
