Good day! I just “slept in” until 6:30 and ate and am now eating an egg and cheese sandwich, so today is going to be a good day. Yesterday was a good one, too! We packed in an early run party and a late dinner party — with about 10 solid hours of errands and housework in between. We were exhausted by the end of it all, but are looking forward to a slow and fun Sunday.
About that run…We met up with the PR bandits for a run on the west side of town. The group has tripled in size since last summer!It was really humid and my legs are still a bit achy from the half marathon last week — so I showed up with no pace or distance goals in mind. We hung with a group around an 8:00 pace which felt pretty tough. How in the world did I run a 6:49 pace last week?! Race day magic is crazy.Anyways, it was a good run. Pretty trails around McCabe park.We ran by the venue where Anthony and I held our wedding reception!And then ended back at The Parthenon. Love this random Nashville attraction. Speaking of attractive, my humidity-struck hair and sweat-soaked face look really nice in this photo.Nine miles, done! I’ll get back on the higher mileage band wagon in a few weeks.Flash forward through those ten hours of chores (plus a power nap) and here we are at the dinner party!It’d been way too long since we saw Tracee and Tony. Drinks were in order! Anthony stirred up some darn tasty margaritas. Sips and dips.I got my hair under control.Our new favorite tequila brand: El Mayor. Don’t believe Tony’s face — I promise this tequila goes down smooth!On the dinner menu: carnitas tacos and Mexican street corn. The corn turned out really well — thanks again for another winner, Cook’s Illustrated! And thanks for the fun corn holders, Mom. All together:We ended the night with these easy lemon-ginger cookies. I make them without the glaze — and dip them into vanilla ice cream instead Off to enjoy our Sunday! Have a good rest of your weekend
