Pretty nice sunrise this morning, right?I set out solo for the first 45 minutes of today’s run, hitting the quiet and golden streets of Georgetown.My legs are still a bit sore from Sunday’s race, so I took it nice and slow. Even took the time to snap a shot of this beautiful tree near Washington Circle — I don’t think I’ve ever really noticed it before! One of my favorite things about running is that it helps you absorb and appreciate the scenery around you.Anyways, after my peaceful and pensive 5.5 miles, I picked up this guy for 5 more:It was great to have a morning date with Anthony, even though grey skies and a bit of snow sunk in toward the end of our run!Another runway-worthy photo of a sleep-deprived, endorphin-high me before 7 am:10.5 miles. Good run.
FAJITAS:I’m not even going to try and segue into these babies, which are loaded with spice and spice and everything nice.Everything nice = bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, refried beans, thinly shredded beef (you can buy it at Trader Joes!), and lots of taco seasoning. (Anthony, I just realized I didn’t tell you that I sneaked mushrooms into this recipe… hehehe.) (Also, did you know “sneaked” and “snuck” are both appropriate past tense words?)
Wrapped up in a multigrain tortilla and topped with creamy Greek yogurt and avocado. Easy and delicious!Also extremely fun and messy to eat. Fork, knife, and lots of napkins recommended. Stay warm out there!
