Here’s a peek into ours so far:
Friday night we grilled up everything left in our fridge — including portabella mushrooms, my favorite. So smoky!The main show: sausages I splurged on from Porter Road Butcher! We tried spicy chorizo and kielbasa. Both good, but the kielbasa was best. It’s a close call, but we think PRB beats Whole Foods’ sausages. We are sausage specialists. It was Friday and we had a long run coming up the next day… so, cold beers were in order.When we lived in DC, the Blue Point Toasted Lager was my go-to order at Ragtime! Flashback to our favorite bar and my long hair:Turns out you can find Blue Point down south, too. (Alanna, look: Long Island!)Friday night we kept it pretty low-key. Too many episodes of Parks & Rec! Treat yo’self.
Saturday we were up at dark o’clock to sneak in some miles.Anthony and I started with five miles through a still-asleep city. The only people out other than us were drunk partiers lost on their way home. So, that was interesting. Beautiful sunrise, though!Here’s me and a giant graffiti-ed microphone. Mile 3 and I was drenched in sweat already.
After our early start, we made it back to
LP Field Nissan Stadium by 6 a.m. in time to run with the PR Bandits. We did a route through the city that started uphill and ended downhill — with a loop around the Parthenon!It was stinking hot by 6:45, so this Gatorade tasted like pure gold. A few final miles with the group, and then we were done and I was actually half awake. Despite the hills and heat, this run felt pretty good. I’m so glad Anthony and I got our butts out there extra early to make it less painful. And today, we slept in! Because 6:30 am is considered sleeping in at the Lambkin household . Have a good one!
