Hello, blog world! Quick trip to Nashville and a quick post before I hop on this plane back to DC. And — a quick track workout to kick off my day!I headed to dear old Brentwood High (my old school!) to do some laps this morning. It was pretty funny being back!
I did a dark warmup and then started sprinting to the sunrise.14×200, with a 1:20 standing rest between each rep. Most of my sprints came in at 40 seconds (with a few at 41 — the wind was crazy strong today!)Some middle school kids showed up and ran with me too, which brought back a slew of school day memories. I actually joined the track team for three short months when I was a freshman in high school — and absolutely hated it! I also sucked at it. If I would have told my 16-year old self that I would be back voluntarily running 10 years later, I would have died laughing.
And today I basically died sprinting because my coach shaved two seconds off my goal time. Phew! Being back at my old stomping grounds was definitely fun — but the highlight of my trip was seeing my NEW niece! She is pretty freaking cute, and a leopard-print onesie makes her officially the best baby in the world. She actually stopped crying for a bit while I held her and my dad snapped a quick flip phone (yes those still exist) photo:
Awwwwww. Let’s end with a big bowl of Thai food.And it’s time to fly away again! See you from DC!
- Do you have any nieces/nephews?
- Favorite Asian cuisine?
- Do you visit/see your old high school often?
