Hello! It’s a sunny Thursday morning, so why not head to the track? I almooooosssst overslept today, but am glad I got out there before the heat set in.Two 2-mile reps, with a 2-minute rest in between! I should have run in lane 2 to keep the theme going, but I chose lane 1 instead.Goal pace was 6:55 for each mile. I was nervous about whether I could pull it off when it came to the final four laps, but I did it and felt oh so accomplished. It’s the little things!
Pictures of the black oval track are pretty boring, but I did find an interesting sight in the parking lot. Abandoned spoon.Moving on to our next big event (really, this blog is full of need-to-know educational info…)
After trying Las Maracas and El Jaliciense, Anthony and I continued our Tour de Los Restaurantes Mexicanos del Gallatin Pike last night. At Las Fiestas!We didn’t get a “margarona” like the sign suggested, but Anthony did get a margarita which he said was the best he’s had of the three Gallatin Ave. places we’ve tried thus far.The chips (cheeeeeps!) were also really tasty. Whenever a chip glistens with oil, I know I’ll like it! The grease got a little too serious for me when it came to the actual food, though. As you can see, I basically ordered a plate of cheese and oil…with a sad plate of simple tacos on the side. These tacos definitely don’t compare to the ones I had at El Jaliciense! I wonder if Las Fiestas actually placed my order at the Taco Bell around the corner?Anyways, even though my order was a bit of a fail, Anthony’s fajitas were sizzling good.We’ll definitely be back to Las Fiestas for drinks and chips, but we prefer El Jaliciense when it comes to food.
The spotlight of last night’s dinner, though, was actually our company. It was Anthony’s parents’ last night with us! They’ve been here for about four weeks and have been so much fun to host.
Have a wonderful day, amigos!
