longest run ever!!

Saturday morning I went for the longest run I've ever completed - 4.0 miles!  Woohoo!  I wasn't feeling great, so we took it nice and slow.  I wish I had been feeling better though, since the weather was really great - not as humid as it's been lately!  Anyway, we finished in 47:49, or at an 11:58 pace... but we did it!

Then, Saturday evening I made Tuna, Tomato, and Mozzarella Salad for a dinner party.  I didn't realize that the tuna was supposed to be grilled, so instead I seared it in a pan.
Then I chopped up fresh mozzarella and tomatoes and arrange them on a plate
Drizzled on balsamic vinagrette and fresh basil
It looks so pretty, right?  Until you add the tuna, haha.
Anyway, everyone seemed to enjoy this dish.  Cooking the tuna correctly is definitely an art I'm still working on - it turned out good this time but I feel like it's so easy to over or under cook tuna!  Glad this turned out mostly medium rare, which I think is ideal for tuna.  Yum! :-)

I also wanted to share a new website I learned about.  Healthy Living Blogs is a new resource for the health blogging community.
