Good morning, DC! (and rest of the world)
Slow and steady out-and-back today.I made sure to stop at mile 5 as part of Laura’s fall 5-mile challenge!The last two miles of my run were really meh but sometimes you just feel slow and that’s life.
Speaking of pace, let’s pause for a quick countdown: 23 days until my wedding and 2 days until my half marathon! Where has the time gone?!
At this point, we’ve got most of our list items checked off — I just need to master my braiding skills! Here’s one of my latest French braiding frenzies:Now I just need to grow two more arms so that I can handle backwards, upside-down hair art.
A four-armed person is a weird image so let’s move on to food. Last night Anthony and I tried out Sushi Rock, located between Court House and Rosslyn.
Sushi Rock has a very swanky interior…But since it was so lovely, we decided to sit outside. Picture #203498 of me smiling like a madwoman hunched over a plate of food:We really liked the crazy Light My Fire roll (pictured above) — the chicken lettuce wraps were also quite tasty! Must try to make these at home.Other than that, though, nothing really stood out. The problem is that Anthony recently returned from Vietnam so his palate has been really pampered in terms of seafood. What a tough life we lead.
Also, I’d like to give a shout out to Puddy, who is the official mascot of Active Life DC.Troy (the head editor) and Puddy came over for some drinks the other night. Chips, salsa, beer, and running talk… PLUS a puppy? What more could a girl ask for?
Have a glorious day you guys!
