Ryder's Sunglasses Winner and the Death of a Treadmill

I know you have all been checking my blog incessantly this morning to see if you won the Ryder's Sunglasses. 
I went to random.org on my phone this morning, and it spit out 51.  I counted through the comments twice... and the winner is...

I love the adrenaline slim.
I had to check twice because it made such a smooth segway into my next giveaway which, coincidentally, is sponsored by TMB.  I guess it is true that those who give the most, get the most!  ;-)  Congrats!  Your package will be on its merry way on Monday.  And I can't wait to see what funky socks you pair these red glasses with.
On another more depressing note... maybe I was being punished for feeding my kids kale, potatoes, and ground turkey for dinner last night...
And for the record, yes, they ate every bite.  This is surprisingly delicious. 
See, does Paige look upset?

Definitely not! 

Anyway, this week has been taper for my half-marathon on Sunday.  I intended to take it easy, but not to become a total slacker.  But I did become a total slacker.  I only ran on Tuesday and Thursday this week.  I woke up this morning nervous about my race, and I generally don't get nervous about races.  I just take them as they come.  I know I can run that far, and I'm not trying to win anything, so the stress is low.  But I automatically start the lazy alarm when I take two days off in a row.  So I wanted to get in just 2-3 miles today in the morning and then maybe some abs - just to keep my energy up.  Got all ready to hit the treadmill and this...

Really?  Today???  This is an old treadmill, so I'm considering getting a new one but don't even know where to start... does anyone have a treadmill they absolutely love?  What kind?  Spill it all!  Off to research.
For the kale and potatoes...
Just put a couple tbsp of oil in the pan, add in a couple of diced potatoes for about 5 minutes, then add some chopped onion and garlic - I like to add ground turkey or sausage - cook another 5 minutes or so, then add a cup or two of chicken broth, some salt, some pepper, and a hoard of coarsely chopped kale - about 6 cups.  Bring back to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 or so.
