True, running at the crack of day means cooler temps and better sunrises.BUT in my case it also means you have to suffer the scents of freshly baked cinnamon rolls and buttery pancakes. I pass an IHOP and a Panera, back to back. Torture!
In other news, my mascot is back! Good thing he gave me a boost because I might have died during my track workout without him. My dear coach assigned me four 1-mile repeats which were intense given today’s extreme heat. It takes me two miles to get to the track, and two more miles to get home, so all in all it’s a big workout. When I got home I drank half of the DC water supply and untangled my super sweaty, tangled hair. Speaking of which, question for you: how do you wear your hair when you run? The other day I experimented with a bun:But found it way too heavy/bouncy for running. I typically sport a basic ponytail, but now that my hair is getting long and the heat makes me especially sweat-tastic, I’m finding that it tangles way too easily. At the end of each run I have a massive knot of frizz/tangles… it’s really attractive.
Not sure how to transition from ponytails to pasta so let’s just go for it.Anthony made this delicious pasta the other night. He’s half Italian so tomato sauce basically runs in his blood.
He invented the pasta sauce — it’s basically something like this. Served atop whole-wheat linguine and topped with parsley + parmesan.It’s always exciting to end a post with thoughts of cheese, isn’t it?
