My mind was totally blown! Running the same route backwards was the idea of one of the guys in my group and it seriously was like running a completely different route. I loved it!
We ended up finishing the 7 miles with a pace of 8:12…woop!!
I am guessing we were extra speedy for 2 reasons this week:
1. The sidewalks were finally clear (no snow, or giant mud puddles makes a BIG difference).
2. It was absolutely freezing (like 18 degrees freezing).
Overall, we all finished strong and even had a mile with a sub 8 minute pace! Even though we finished strong, by the time I got home I was hungry and COLD. Luckily, I had a delicious and warm slow cooker meal just waiting for me to enjoy it.
This meal came together as kind of an accident.
Brian and I had an amazing weekend in Fort Wayne, but when I got home on Sunday I still needed to get some food ready for the week. I knew it would be super easy to put together a meal in the slow cooker, so I took a look at what I had in my freezer/cupboards and this delicious chicken soup was created!
Honestly, I threw the ingredients in the slow cooker hoping it would be edible. I came home late on Monday night, and Brian had already eaten dinner. When I asked what he ate he literally said “That delicious chicken soup! Seriously, so good! You definitely need to put that on the blog.”
So, friends…Brian’s wish is granted! I am sharing this tasty and super EASY chicken soup recipe with you 🙂
Yields: 4-6 servings
I hope this recipe warms you from the inside out like it did for me!
