It’s almost Friday!and thank goodness for that. I’m definitely feeling that end-of-week fatigue setting in. Luckily I had some running buddies to keep me from sleeping in today. Katie, Lizzie, Anthony, and I met up at Shelby Park bright and early for five quick miles.My Garmin died today so I have no idea what our pace was — but it felt fast! Tomorrow will be a no-running day and I’m ready for that. Oh and also: Couch on Riverside Drive.Two menus to discuss today! One is a race menu and one is a dinner menu
Which fall marathon should I run? Originally I was thinking I’d run Huntsville, but the thought of training all the way through December makes me want to cry. So, now I’m looking at Detroit and Indianapolis, which are both in mid-October. Pros of Detroit: It’s a cool city I’ve always wanted to visit and I’ll have a friend that I can stay with who is running it too! Cons: It’s far away (I’d probably have to fly) and more expensive. And it’s on a Sunday. Pros of Indianapolis: It’s close and cheap and a handful of East Nasty runners will probably be going. And it’s on a Saturday. Cons: The course doesn’t look as scenic as Detroit’s. Help!
Side note: All my half-marathoners out there, the ZOOMA Nashville half marathon & 5k course maps were revealed this week! If you sign up for the race, use MARY15 for 10% off your registration.
The dinner menu is far less controversial. Here’s a “pho-to” of our latest meal As soon as we tasted Cooksmarts’ pho last week, we knew it was a winner. It’s in the regular meal rotation for good! We also knew that my dad, who loves spicy food, would be a big fan of pho. So we invited my parents over to try it out last night.It was a hit! Second helpings all around. The Thai basil I spontaneously bought at Home Depot the other month and have been wondering what to do with is suddenly our most-consumed garden herb. Yum.And that’s all I’ve got for you guys today! I have a fun trip for the blog today and can’t wait to share it with y’all soon!
- What herbs/foods do you grow at home?
- How long did your Garmin last before it died forever? Mine seems to be nearing the end of its life
