Table Setting

"A beautiful table can make even the most mundane meal seem like an event."
I always admire beautiful table setting.  I feel whatever and however the food may taste, but the first impression is always the last impression and is always remembered.  Last week I had the pleasure to host a breakfast for about 15 guests.  More than cooking and taking it as a Hercules task, my all focus was on laying a cozy, elegant table. 
Although I didn't do something VERY unique, but just admired my very first attempt and really enjoyed the complete process.  It is a kind of informal setting with some greens in a silver pot.

I laid out the designer food labels with every dish.  Here are the few pictures of the whole setting.

We run because we are Runners.

It’s been a week and I am really working hard to get the best timings in 5k run. With a good start from 29.30 to 30 then 31 mins and last 29.40 mins.  Need to work really hard on the timings.  My ultimate goal is 5.20 pace for 5k which is 26.40mins.  The coming weekend need to break at least one minute out of 3. 

We run because we want to be healthy, strong, and fit. We run because we have goals and dreams. We run because we love the feeling of our bodies working hard. We run to experience the endorphin high.  We run because we like to challenge ourselves, push our limits, and feel accomplished. We run because nothing beats the feeling of finishing a good run. We run because even a bad run is better than no run. We run because we love it. 
We run because we are runners. 

And keeping in mind -
“Strength does not come from winning.  Your struggle develops your strengths.  When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.”  Arnold Schwarzenegger
