A few days ago the inner child came out as Laura and I headed over to Michael and Santi's house to make use of their trampoline. As the sun went down we jumped around like children. Uncontrollable laughter led to belly aches as we bounced each other around the 8 foot platform. It felt so good to release a bit of built up stress that has been weighing me down a bit over the last few weeks.
Afterwards we headed to my place to enjoy some fresh tomato pizza, New Haven Style!! New Haven, CT is home to some of the best pizza in the country. Although I am a vegan and no longer do dairy or fish, I still the smells of Pepe's white clam pizza, or the classic tomato and basil. I prepared a crust of sprouted mung beans, lentils and fenugreek. Once dehydrated, we topped it with a basil-hemp pesto, home made marinara, and lightly dehydrated Roma tomatoes. Raw food heaven!!
I am really looking forward to this weekends race and happy to have Laura coming out to help. It is really encouraging to have a crew or some type of support during a race. It is always energizing to hear somebody cal out your name as you run by. She is also a personal trainer so the stretching afterwards will be a bonus!!
