That is what I have decided today is!
I went out to complete a 12 mile run...I ran into construction and started to take the detour. Then I found out that the detour was not going to work for me while on foot...so I turned around. Then, a construction worker let me through the construction and I was able to continue on my mapped out course. It took me about 2 hours and 15 minutes with all the construction shenanigans and when I sat down to map out what I actually ended up running, I found that I ran 13.75 miles! WOAH! I felt pretty great and super proud that I did it. I can't believe that my first half marathon was completely unofficial and a total accident, but I'm still proud that I was able to do it. Plus, I ran the entire time!

No-Knead Perfect Pizza Dough (adapted from Some Kitchen Stories-originally from Jim Lahey)
Ingredients (for about 3 pizzas):
3 3 /4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups water
1. In a big mixing bowl, mix flour, salt and yeast. Slowly mix in the water and continue to mix for a few minutes, until dough just comes together. Form dough into a rough ball (it will be a little sticky) and then place the bowl in a dry, room temperature area. I put mine in the oven (off obviously) and let the dough rise for 18-20 hours. The dough should more than double in size.
|Preparing the dough...|
|Some sauteed veggies|
6. Bake the pizzas for about 10 minutes if using a baking sheet and about 5-7 if using a stone. The crust should be blistered and bubbly-that's how you know it's perfect!
|My dad said this was the best crust he had ever had!|
