They should rename “daylight savings” “no-light mornings.”
Because hello, people, some of us don’t care about saving the light until the afternoon.
Let there be light in the morning! Earlier than 7:10 a.m. would be wonderful but at least I got to catch a peek of the sun at the end of my jog.Last tough week run before Saturday! Thursdays feel more like Fridays to me because I usually take Fridays off or do something easy. Yay.
So, last night I got to meet the brains behind Active Life DC. Troy started this cool website as a hub for all things sporty and active around town, and I’ve been really happy to help contribute to his project!We discussed running, martial arts, yoga, CrossFit, and soooo much more about the active scene in DC over some refreshing beers at El Tamarindo. He has a great vision for the site and I’m glad DC finally has a landing spot for all activities. Our city has a lot of specific clubs and publications, but not many all-inclusive athletic organizations. Rumor has it that Active Life is going to set up a sporty blogger meet-and-greet… now THAT would be fun to go to. Nothing like a bunch of (active) internet geeks all in the same place.
I would have loved to stay at Tamarindo for a big greasy burrito, but Anthony and I gave up eating out for Lent! So tough!
So we went to his place for barbecue chicken wraps and broccoli. Which were probably a much better decision than a burrito anyways.Barbecue sauce is probably my favorite condiment and one of my big life goals is to try and make it myself. I just looked up this recipe from The Neelys and think I just found my weekend project.
Side note about The Neelys: I used to do my long runs on the treadmill in college every Saturday morning and would watch their show at 9 a.m. each week. They’re kind of loud but I hold a special place for them in my heart.
When Anthony and I are married and living together, we are going to dress up and pose like this in our grandiose kitchen all the time.
Until then, though, I’ll be forever short on time. I have so much to ramble about but life must go on — so, here’s a list of interesting reads I found today. Passed on to you, because sharing is what the internet was made for
