you’ve run out of something to write about, the phone rings.
And it’s a friend asking if you’ve got any Kewpie Mayonnaise for her potato salad.
and lo and behold, a post is born!
Kewpie Mayonnaise is Japanese mayonnaise, and it’s the best in the world. I used to work for a Japanese food company that also made mayo, but in the test kitchen they stocked Kewpie mayo, and once I asked one the guys why, and he said “because it’s the best mayonnaise in the world.”
Anyways, my friend in town is Japanese, so she knew that if anyone had a stockpile of Kewpie Mayonnaise, it would be me. So I ran the bottle over to her on my way to my “winter warriors” run tonight.
And what a great run! The acupuncture seems to be the icing on my road to recovery. Finally, I ran at a pace that was faster than my recent 10+/mile (for a while I thought my app was broken, it seemed to be stuck at 10:40/mile). I can’t wait until Alaina can stick those needles in my hamstring! (and i can’t believe I actually am saying that!)
And on a more positive note, I got a FB message from a former college classmate. Our 25th (egads! I’m old!) reunion is coming up, and she asked if I wanted to be the lead organizer (along with the school) on the 10k that’s offered. Of course I said yes!
