Happy Halloween! But even more importantly HAPPY GRIZZLIES OPENING DAY! Tonight the boys tip off against LA and although I won’t be able to watch them (test #2 in systems physio tomorrow), I have been in my white T all day :). I also decided if I couldn’t be at my usual Memphis bar to watch the game (Next Door) eating my favorite salad, I would just make it here.
Grizzlies Game Day Salad
- Candied Pecans
- Roasted Chicken
- Red Onions
- Green Apple Slices
- Blue Cheese
Take it easy on the blue cheese and candied pecans, friends :). I had some balsamic dressing I threw on there, definitely not as good as Next Door’s but it’ll do until I have time to figure out a new Grizzly routine.
I’ll have to keep an eye on the score in between studying contractile cells and pneumothoraxes ;).
Karaoke Run at Texas Running Company.
First though, before I hit the books I want to share a unique group run I experienced last week. Texas Running Company partnered with Brooks last week to bring back the Karaoke Group Run.
We had a great turnout of dozens of runners and singers. When people arrived they were ushered to a laptop where they selected their own song that would play during the run. While people waited we raffled off t-shirts, compression gear and entries into the Karaoke 5k on November 17.
The computer was then attached to a wheeled device and after a warm up to a Backstreet Boys’ song, the group was off. It was high energy and fun and I was sad to have to stay behind to hold down the fort.
They returned about 30 minutes later – sweaty, smiling and thirsty for the beer we had waitiing on ice. If you missed the run last week – join us Thursday November 15 for the next karaoke run. 6:30 pm at the Texas Running Company downtown.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must get back to the books. GO GRIZZ!
