hills for breakfast; BBQ, froyo, fajitas, margaritas, etc. for dinner

Yesterday’s breakfast: Six servings of hills.IMG_2965The elevation squiggles show just how fun it was ;) Capture9999Even though I pretty much died during each 2:05-2:10 minute sprint of pain, the view from the top was nice. IMG_2964I hate hills, but they’ll pay off come race day!

I realize that we’re a day past Cinco de Mayo, but I’m going for a margarita…_DSC0005Over the weekend we checked out Garcia’s in Franklin. It lived up to its rave reviews for sure. Who could criticize a two person-sized plate of sizzling fajitas?!_DSC0007Somehow we found ourselves with an oversized cup of froyo again…_DSC0022The other highlight of the weekend: picnic-worthy weather. Anthony and I lit up the grill and prepared an outdoor feast for my family and friends (see the smartphone on the table? That’s my sister, joining in from Colorado)_DSC0030Anthony was the grill master; I was the veggie master. Chicken, super-roasted carrots, and a big ole salad._DSC0033Piled high on a paper plate. _DSC0038We ended up sitting on the back porch way past sunset. Best way to close out a weekend! Now it’s time to do that run thing again. Looking for a route that’s 100% downhill…

  1. Looks like a pretty great day to me! Hills are a killer, but such a great workout. I use them at the start of every new segment of training. You have to be smart about not going up the first few too fast. I had my first fro-yo of the year last weekend, soooooo good! You have so many good eats!

  2. Oh my that meal looks amazing! Perfect summery meal! My favorite saying for hills is claw the hill. The last half I did was hilly and I knew it was so me and my friends all wrote in our hands claw the hill and every time there was a hill we would look at that. It helped!

  3. We grill more than we cook inside. I love it!

    PS – We had roasted rainbow carrots the other day. They are SO good.

    Also – I am giving away a free entry to the Williamsburg Half Marathon on my blog. I know you used to be in this area so if you know anybody who may be interested please feel free to send them my way. Giveaway ends on Friday.
