Hey there! How was your weekend? As I mentioned on Friday, ours kicked off in the best way possible. Pizza.Anthony and I teamed up to make homemade pizza pies. I mixed up the dough and slow cooked the sauce; he assembled the pizzas and put them on our grill!Toppings included a roundup of fresh veggies and basil; prosciutto and CHEESE!Plus some amazing white truffle pizza oil that our friends Tracee and Tony got us. Speaking of which — they were our guests!For our first time making 100% from-scratch pizza, I think we did pretty well. The trick was using pure semolina flour for the crust and figuring out how to cook them on open flames (it took a quite a cast iron concoction involving our wok, ha!)The other trick: Eating them fresh and gooey, right off the grill.Eating pizza and wine until midnight makes you feel GREAT on a 7 a.m. run the next day, let me tell ya. 😉Anthony, Katie, and I met up with the Nashville Striders for their popular “Bongo to Bongo” run. It starts at the Bongo Java coffee shop on the east side, then heads alllll the way to the Bongo location on the west side. Plus an extra four-mile loop around the Belmont area.We finished right at 14 miles, around an 8:15 average pace (if I had to guess. My Garmin died!). The run actually flew right by — those are my favorite types of long runs!After our run, we headed to Tim’s Ford Lake to hang out with my parents. Cards were played.(More) wine was drank. With chocolate cookies dipped in?!And some football was watched! What a game, right?
…and now we’re off to drive home at 5:30 am. Catch you tomorrow!
