I’m supposed to be on a plane ride to Tennessee right now! But the bad weather down south has delayed us. The skies in DC aren’t looking too great, either. Luckily I had Catherine to keep me company for eight of my eleven miles this morning!Neither of us were particularly jazzed to be running in grey, 28-degree weather, but we made the most of it and embraced the opportunity to catch up!We did a pretty flat out-and-back route along the Mall. When oh when are they finally going to take all the scaffolding off the monument? It’s been over a year!Catherine has a marathon coming up in a couple weeks — it’s a pretty small race and she is super fast, so she’s hoping she might place!Which brought us to the conversation: big race of small race? There are definitely pros and cons of both, but I think the logistical and financial joys of a small race outweigh the crowd support and swag of a big race. Which do you prefer?
Anyways, before I knew it we were back at Key Bridge and parting ways after a long, fast outing. 8:14 average pace – not bad!Since all of my photos from this morning are glum and depressing, how about we rewind to the other night when Anthony and I made beautiful and glorious burgers:I saw this buffalo turkey burger recipe on Skinnytaste (can you tell I’m obsessed with that blog right now?!) and knew it was destiny.We topped our burgers with the bleu cheese slaw, tomatoes, and avocado. And washed the down with a lemon-lime-seltzer mix.On the side: “roasted” (“roasted” meaning “burnt” because I forgot about them in the oven) carrot fries and broccoli.Another Skinnytaste recipe for the win. These were pretty easy to make, and extremely easy to eat
Have a great weekend and hope to see you from Nashville, if our flight ever takes off!
