Giveaway winner and a question about korean tacos

I used a random number generator to pick a winner for my giveaway post the other day. The winner was comment #15, Sarah M—congrats! I’ve notified her via email. Thanks to all of you for entering, sharing your cookie ideas and cat pictures!

I didn’t take too many pictures over the weekend (bad blogger!) but I had a great weekend. I only had to play one wedding at the Jewel Box and otherwise was able to do stuff around the house, run, and hang out with friends.

I’ve been using RunKeeper to track my runs. The other day I was doing a run where I ran for 1:45 and walked for 1:15 (I’m working my way back up to longer runs, and this is where I am right now.) I generally run around the same kind of route with a few variances, so I generally know where the first mile is, and I heard it WAY too early, which confused me.

You can see that my “fast” intervals seem, well…Olympic fast. Note to readers: I do not generally run 4 to 6 minute miles.


Ah! Mystery solved. That red line is the supposed route I took. I was actually running in a quasi straight line, not zigzagging like a crazy person and doubling back on my route every few seconds.

If nothing else, this run really shows me how inaccurate the satellite can be. I hate when people say that a race course is short or long based on their satellite reading…it isn’t always that precise. And sometimes it can be really wrong!


I have a question about Korean Tacos: are they are a real thing in Korea OR did the Koreans invent them for we Americans since we love tacos? I could probably google this but I’d rather ask you guys. The above tacos are from Kim Cheese, a Korean place near the school I used to teach at (which has since closed)—so yummy! Those are the spicy pork tacos. I will be back, and I’m kind of glad I didn’t discover the deliciousness of this restaurant until I no longer teach there as I’d probably want to eat there too often.  They have more than just tacos too.

  1. I have been most curious about that myself…I really want to try Seoul Taco.

    P.S. You forgot a cat picture!

  2. Kim Cjheese??? I don’t know. I think I’d stick with banh mi from Banh Mi So or go the the Taco Joint in the Loop… Just sayin’.

    1. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! I’ve eaten at Seoul Taco and these were just as good, in my opinion. I was out in the area anyway 🙂
