To be honest with you, internet friends, I was not jazzed to bike downhill in the dark, cold morning today.But my DC destination was so worth it. I arrived at the Tahiti PA meetup point for a run with Leah and Miriam (BIRTHDAY GIRL)!We covered about five miles which flew by because we gabbed the entire time.One topic of conversation was the personality type of runners. On one hand, we know a lot of social butterfly-type runners, who basically use running as a way to hang out with friends. On the other hand, though, there are definitely a lot of runners who prefer to jog alone and steer clear of the group running thing and use running as their “me time.”
I guess I fall somewhere in between. I wouldn’t want to run with people every day, but I definitely prefer to have running buddies for long runs and maybe a jog or two during the week.Whether it be solo or social, I still think running is always a good thing.
We had this amazing, smoky-tomato-y chicken tortilla soup while we were in Mexico over our honeymoon. I was determined to recreate it! Thanks to Rachel Ray, I was able to get pretty dang close (RECIPE).The key ingredient in this soup is a can of chiles in adobo, which I was able to find at Whole Foods.
The other key ingredients are chips and beer.It was fiery, but good! I never actually do seem to make the same recipe twice, but if I ever decide to, this is definitely going to happen again.Have a great day!
- Do you make the same recipes repeatedly, or always try new ones?
- Are you a social runner or a solo runner?
- Do you usually commute (drive, bike) to get to your run route, or just start running from your doorstep?
