Back to this morning’s jog. It is a HUMID week here. The East Nasties and I all agreed that this morning’s run felt more like a swim. Even though I started running before the sun rose, it didn’t help!We did a quick 3.5-mile loop around LP Field, and then a few of us tacked on some extra miles at the end. And then I did some more! I was hoping to make it to 10, but the temps were high and I was short on time (as my early-morning Instagram followers know, I needed to get back to my homemade burger bun experiment). So I cut it short at 9. Good run!
AND good company lately. Rewind to the weekend: my grandma flew in from Ohio to visit us!Anthony and I spent a while thinking about what to make for her. In the end we decided on pasta. Sticking to our Italian roots!We went for a pasta carbonara dish that was simple but so, so good. (I mean, how pancetta, cheese, eggs, and bread crumbs not taste good?) She approved!Grandma also downed her first mojito. Nice work, Anthony.The next day we hung out at my parents’ lake house, where this cutie pie awaited.Once the little one was in bed, the real party started. Grandma taught us how to play dominos.Or sort of taught. She kept changing the rules! Ha.As the weekend festivities came to a close, we had an early birthday celebration for yours truly! My wishes: to break 3 hours in the marathon and eat cake every day for the next year. Think both are possible?Okay, I need to get back to those burger buns and start the day! Have a good one.
- Where are your ancestors from?
- Any other August birthdays?!
- When you go for a run, do you know how many miles you’ll do when you start out, or do you just wing it?
