Hey there! How’s your weekend going?
Mine is rainy with a side of french fries.After happy hour-ing at Ireland’s Four Courts 10+ times, on Friday Anthony and I finally decided we should try actually eating there. This massive chicken sandwich didn’t disappoint!
It was also a great pre-run fuel choice. I had 20 miles on the menu for Saturday. I met up with the DC Road Runners for the first soggy 15 miles of my journey.We “protested” by running through parts of closed national parks! What a riot.
I actually did see this guy who really is protesting with his truck/wagon/billboard on wheels.I ended up running with some speedsters and covered many miles at an 8:00 – 8:15 pace. I thought I would crash at the end, but I guess the cool temps and good chats helped keep me going!Around mile 13 I decided to drop back since I still had quite a bit more ground to cover…And chugged along closer to an 8:20-8:30 pace for the last seven. Phew!I was pretty beat after, but not as dead as I thought I would be. I even had enough energy to go out for a drink(s)!
We met up with Miriam (who also ran 15+ miles yesterday, ha!) to check out Thally, a new bar in Mt. Vernon.I splurged on an awesome cocktail which featured bourbon, rosemary, elderflower, and homemade ginger ale. Thally makes a bunch of their own sodas — pretty cool right.Family photo:DC might not have seen the sun for four rainy days in a row, but at least I still have my tan from Mexico.
Have a restful Sunday!
