Team In Training

There's a new fad in Orange County, marathon running. There's a group of girls on the Nest who are training for the LA Marathon. While I'm not one of them, I am taking part in some of their training and runs. Next month we're running the Turkey Trot - a 10K race in Dana Point. You'll recognize us by our nifty team jerseys ;-)

Today we had a get together to discuss upcoming fundraisers, meetings, and those jerseys I just mentioned. Hosted by Diane, she also provided a masseuse which was really appreciated by the other girls. Poor inelastic vein Kate had to sit out once again to save being in pain for days later.

At Diane's request we all brought "running training friendly" food. I made Jerk Chicken because it's high in protein, and gets its flavor from all the spices instead of fats and sugars.

Jerk Chicken
1/3 cup olive oil
1 jalepeno, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, minced
3 Tbsp white vinegar
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 tsp dried thyme
3/4 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless, chicken thighs cut into 1 1/2" pieces

1) In a large ziplock bag combine all ingredients. Refrigerate overnight.
2) Heat broiler. Broil chicken 6 minutes, turning over halfway through.
