Good morning! Hope you enjoyed your long weekend It was hard to get back in the 4:45 am groove this morning, but we did it! Anthony headed to the gym while I visited dear Shelby park for a run.6.5 miles, with miles 2-5 alternating hard/easy every half mile. The only way to get faster… is to run faster. Let’s hope today’s run pays off come race day(s)!
How was your weekend? After Anthony and I tackled our long run and house chores galore, we headed to my parents’ lake house to say hello and say goodbye (they’re leaving for Europe today for a whole month!).Sunday was pretty rainy, but Monday was perfect lake weather. I made an epic waterproof salad + sandwiches for us to lunch on while we took the boat out for its last summer ride. (ps do you like my dad’s Duck Dynasty t-shirt? sigh.)… and Anthony packed plenty of waterproof beers.
Speaking of alcohol, the main event of the weekend: crafting the Ultimate Margarita. We put two tequilas and two liqueurs to the test!Anthony labeled blind taste test cups while we sipped and pondered. The winning combination: Altos tequila + Triple-Sec! Smooth and perfectly sweet.
In between beers and margs, we also did that running thing. Thank goodness these trails were shaded, because it was another hot one!Best surprise of the weekend: I only got sunburned on half of one arm, and came back with only three bug bites. Successful weekend in my opinion. Hope yours was good!
