$1 Guac, Hot Donuts & Cardboard Boxes

If the title doesn't give it away this is going to be one random post. After sharing my goals for being productive as I work my way up to seven miles with race training, I have neither fully completed those tasks nor chronicled them. For an update I am back up to mile five which I hit this morning, barely. I'm still working on my mile three goal of fixing this whole blog feed situation, so hold tight. In the mean time make sure to like the Chasing Young Facebook page so that if URL's have to go crazy while I'm trying to fix this issue you'll know where to find me.

So here's some brief updates...
Mile Three: In progress
Mile Four: Cleaned out all of my desk/office supplies today and recycled TONS of stuff! More on that later...
Mile Five: Will be sitting down this week to do a massive clean of my Gmail account, it's in desparate need.

In other news, I had a fabulous three day weekend filled with friends, food, and Friday Night Lights.

3D glasses for The Dark Kastle, cool kids.
Every summer my work shuts down on a Friday afternoon to do updates at the power plant. I don't mind because they give us free tickets to Busch Gardens and ship us down to Williamsburg. We spent all day Friday riding every coaster in the park (including two go 'rounds on Verbolten & Griffon) and I'm so thankful to have awesome colleagues that I can play with outside of the office, and that also share my love of adrenaline rushes.

On Saturday I finally went to the farmer's market for the first time this summer. I know. I am so awful. There are SO many amazing ones here in Richmond but I can just never seem to get my act together on early weekend mornings. I headed to the South of James market with a friend on Saturday morning and finally got to try donuts from Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen and they were absolutely to die for! If you think a fresh Krispy Kreme is amazing this is that times 3498564. I bought an extra to take home to Mr. Young and it took a lot of willpower to not chow down on it before I got home.

I was excited to bring home some good loot, even though I didn't get a ton of stuff. The best find was definitely a huge cup of amazing guacamole from Gotacado (another amazing food truck to try!) for $1. Yes, one single dollar. That's how much I pay for one avocado at Kroger. Zing! This stuff was so great that we definitely killed it in just shy of 24 hours.

If you follow me on Instagram then you got to see the amazing meal I made last night with these delicious veggies. I'll be posting the recipes for ya soon.

While consuming all of this food I've also been packing like a maniac and trying to finish the last season of Friday Night Lights with Mr. Young. As much as I want to get the end I'm going to be so sad for it to be over. That damn show makes me want to pick up and move to BFE Texas, and also really makes me miss my summer in Ft. Worth.

Hope that your weekend was as fun filled and random as mine, cheers to the start of another great week!
