Look who’s back!After journeying across the world, all three of us found our way to our meeting corner at 6:15 this morning. Some people don’t like routines, but I am happy to have my regularly scheduled Wednesday run with these lovely ladies.In other news, DC is beautiful but also feels like a big armpit today. Hello, humidity!
The heat got us chatting about the appropriateness of running in a sports bra. Which apparently is a popular topic (as discussed here, here, and here). I think I used to be more against it, but over the past few years I’ve come to think that if it’s hot enough, it’s okay for women to bare a bit more. There’s nothing worse than a sticky shirt clinging to you on mile five, right? Plus, guys get to run completely shirtless so it’s not fair that women can’t shed a layer, too.
Speaking of layers, last night I tried to reinvent a Chipotle burrito bowl.It had all the same ingredients as you’d find at Chipotle, and tasted almost as good! Anthony and I decided it just needed more oil to really rank up there with the real thing though. On the plus side, I’m guessing mine was a lot healthier. If you want to ruin your day, take a peek at Chipotle’s nutrition calculator to see some shocking numbers.I made this Spanish rice (with brown, not white rice) for the base. Topped with onion, bell pepper, zucchini, black beans, chicken, tomatoes, salsa, cheese, and sour cream! I got exhausted just typing that… no wonder I was so full after eating this mountain of Mexican goodness.
