Run 4 a Reason

Posted on April 30, 2012 by under Events, Food and Drink.    

I was going to title this post, “Correr Por Una Razón y Los Vendedores Latinoamericanos” but Brian told me to knock it off. He’s tired of all the Spanish blog titles. LOL. Anyway, English titles are easier and quicker; and I’m at least a week behind on blogging so I guess he wins this round.

Last Sunday was pretty crazy. I had this wacky idea of taking the Zumba fitness class at West 13th (because Gina Ann was subbing for Andrea while she got licensed for Aqua Zumba), Amie’s Zumba fitness class, and then running a 5K. I figured that there would be enough breaks in between so it wouldn’t be a big deal. However, I started to feel tired from doing the two hours of Zumba prior so I told Brian that we should probably just walk. Brian wanted to run, though. So we started off running. As I suspected, he gave up a quarter of a mile in. It was pretty sad.

We weren’t even power walking. We were meandering like a couple of tourists. We even stopped to take photos at a couple of spots. And to think that Brian thinks he can complete Tough Mudder. He can’t even run a 5K. I have no room to talk, though. I’m not built for running either.

Oh the bright side, Brian and I had the most stylish shirts there. I customized our Run 4 a Reason shirts so ours were the most unique. I turned Brian into a sleeveless shirt, which he said he wouldn’t mind wearing to the gym, and I turned mine into a cropped, destroyed shirt fit for Zumba.

We’ve decided that we’re going to participate in the Bank of America River Run this year, and I doubt that cool t-shirts are going to cut it, so we better get training. LOL!

Brian’s work had their National Sales Meeting at the Broadview Hotel this year. The food was catered by Corporate Caterers and was better than in previous years. I think they may never return to the Hyatt. LOL.

Here’s a gigantic slice of cheesecake.

On the final night, Toby and Jorge took us to Wasabi.

We had this thing called rice crispy, edamame, fried dumplings, and some crab cakes to start. You get five delicious, little crab cakes.

It was super good!

Here’s the stone henge and shrimp tempura crazy roll up close. These are two of our most favorite things to get at Wasabi.

I believe this one is called super tiger roll.

And then this one is the crunchy roll.

This last trip to Wasabi made me realize how much I’d missed the resto. Yum, yum, yum! I can’t wait to go back!

Anyway, Brian had some really late nights last week. One night he didn’t get home until almost midnight. I’m really glad that National Sales Meeting is over and have my husband back. I’m ready for our schedules to return to normal. I was having separation anxiety for a while there. Though, I think I handled it much better than Brian would have if the roles were reversed. Ha ha ha!
