Today’s the Big Race!

by Glenneth on January 22, 2012

Today’s the big day! The 4 mile trail race is at 2PM. I am definitely nervous about this one. I have never done a trail race and never done more than 3.1 miles (5K) at a time. It is going to be a muddy mess out there from yesterday’s rain. My goal: slow and steady to the finish line. I am quite certain I will be last and I am okay with that. I will update you either later today or tomorrow. You can also follow me on Twitter for updates.

Decided to try something new this morning for breakfast. Where did I get the idea? Pinterest of course. This is what I was going for:

Instead of ham, I used canadian bacon. I was also only making 2, not 12.

They turned out okay. The recipe said to cook for 12 minutes and I think I wound up cooking them for 14. The eggs just didn’t seem cooked. Don’t get me wrong – I love over easy, runny easy, but the white part didn’t seem done. Any ideas what went wrong?

Off to pay some bills and go through this week’s mail.

Today’s talking point: What have you done out of your comfort zone lately?

Have a great race, I admire you for doing something like that. I am not much of a cook but anytime something does not seem done, I would have cooked it a bit longer myself.

Hi! I just saw your post on my egg recipe- thanks for making it! I hope your race went well! I think that because canadian bacon is so much thicker than the thin sliced ham I used- the cook time will be longer! If I had to guess, I think that’s the issue. Also, the whites do look a bit cloudy, even when the egg is done. I cook mine for 12 minutes and then leave them in the pan as I salt and pepper them. That gives them a little more time to set without fully cooking the yolk.

Thanks Lindsay! I didn’t think about the canadian bacon being the issue – and I had to use 2 pieces in each cup. Next time I will cook longer and try only 1 slice of canadian bacon. Great recipe!

Hope the race goes well. Slow and steady wins the day – good luck! Let us all know how it went.

Thanks Charlie! There will definitely be a race recap up today or tomorrow. Hoping to get some pictures also.
