Oh hey! It’s the weekend! I hope yours is going well and you are doing something more exciting than reading my blog on a Saturday night.
My weekend actually kicked off on a low note. I met up with Melanie for a final coffee date. She’s moving to Bosnia! Which is awesome for her, but we’ll miss her here in the District. On a brighter note, I have captured a good friend, myself, and a Starbucks cinnamon roll all in one shot. Score.
Safe travels Mel!Anthony and I kept our Friday Good by not eating meat. He made fish and chips (well, sweet potato fries) which were amazing.Broccoli is our go-to vegetable side. It ticks off all my requirements: easy, cheap, and healthy.You know what else is really cheap, really healthy, but not necessarily easy? Running.
I stood up on my tired legs this morning (thank you, deadlifts and half marathon) and set out for 17 miles. I actually started “late” at 8:30 a.m., which was weird because I didn’t run in the dark at all!First three solo, next eleven miles with the Nike Women’s group. Penelope is my pace buddy and we had some good chats to keep our mind off the miles.It actually got quite warm! Not sure whether it was due to the actual climate or the massive amount of tourists and protesters on the National Mall today for the Kite Festival. After we passed the Capitol our run sort of turned into a swim through a sea of Spring Breakers and tour groups.And the last three I did alone. On my last mile I saw this truly inspirational cabinet on Connecticut Street that gave me the strength to finish strong.You know, that’s actually a pretty nice cabinet. Maybe tomorrow I’ll check to see if it’s still there?
