I had so much fun sharing my random thoughts with you all last week that I’m participating again in Running with SpoonsThinking Out Loud Thursday again.  Here are a few of the thoughts that popped into my head this week:

Random thought #1:

Did you know that I started running eighteen years ago?  I got this crazy idea in my head that I wanted to try running a half marathon. Only I had no idea how to train for one, nor did I understand how far a half marathon was.  I grabbed a book that I found at the Running Room (and apparently a tank top too) and followed a 16 week training program from the book.  I trained only on a dreadmill and discovered fairly early in the race that dreadmill running and road running are very different. Road running is physically harder, while the dreadmill is mentally harder.

My first race. Notice that I look like I’m dying while the chick beside me looks like she’s having a blast?

Random thought #2:

Cuddles always win.  I set my alarm to get up early for my run, but got caught trying to sneak out by my youngest daughter, so I decided to stay and cuddle with her until the rest of the family wakes up. I managed to fit my run in later at lunch.

Life is too short to say no to this.

Random thought #3:

Making your own salad dressing is so much easier than I ever thought. The other day I decided to try making my own salad dressing and was surprised at how easy it was.  

Mixed Berry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

I eat a lot of salad, but had never thought to make my dressing myself.  Why would I when there are so many great options at the store?  I was out of dressing for my salad, and wasn’t in the mood to herd the cats to go shopping, so I looked through my cupboards and found everything I needed:

It really is that simple to make your own delicious and fresh mixed berry vinaigrette. 

Random thought #4:

Salads made with home-made salad dressing taste way better. This thought is self-explanatory, but if you don’t believe me, here’s a picture:

Nom nom nom!

Why you’ll love this dressing

As mentioned above, there is no doubt I LOVE a good salad. It’s probably one of my favorite things to make and eat. I think it’s because salads don’t require much, just bright greens, fresh veggies or fruit, and a good homemade dressing.

What makes this truly the best salad dressing is the perfect combination of sweet and sour frozen mixed berries.

Is mixed berry vinaigrette healthy? 

Usually, vinaigrette type dressings with oil and vinegar tend to be healthier. To keep the vinaigrette refined sugar-free, honey is used instead of brown sugar.

This berry salad dressing is made with ingredients that you likely already have available to you at home:
