Good morning! I hope your Thursday is off to a speedy start.Anthony and I headed to the track this morning. He usually does his own thing while I do my workout, but today we stuck together. The lineup: 7 x 1000m with a one-minute rest in between each rep. 1000m = 2.5 laps around the track.
I was shooting for the 4:05-4:10 range for each round. Here’s how I did: 4:04; 4:08; 4:02; 4:06; 4:00; 4:10; 4:03. A bit scattered, but not too bad. It was a tough one!What’s that thing on my head? A Banded2gether headband that I just received. This local company (based in Franklin) makes non-slip headbands, hair ties, and other accessories. The cool thing: they support Amazima, a charity that helps educate and empower children and adults in Uganda. Amazima was actually started by a girl from my hometown (Brentwood).
Another fun fact: I went to Uganda for a month for a work trip back in 2011. I much prefer wearing headbands to bulletproof vests. Needless to say, this is one special headband Sticking with the local companies theme: Anthony and I headed to Shiki Sushi the other night for another seafood feast! Here we are sailing away on the fabulous wooden boat.We didn’t go as “overboard” as we did last time we were there, but we still got a ton of sushi and it was awesome. All these local companies doing amazing things. Keep it up, Nashville. (And Franklin. And Brentwood.)
- Do you run in headbands? If so, what brand do you prefer?
- Sushi, sashimi, or nigiri?
