Ugh: Rainy Monday!Not the prettiest run of my life, but at least the gloomy weather waited until the weekend was over. Also, it’s way too dark outside in the mornings. Time to bust out the old headlamp…Anthony and I covered five miles around the streets of East Nashville. After four months of rigid (okay, semi-rigid…) marathon training, it feels nice to just go out and run for fun. No goals!
How was your weekend? Ours was super low key. I even took a nap on Saturday! After I knocked out a run, of course. I met a ZOOMA runner at Fleet Feet in Green Hills for an early jog. Since our paces were so different, we ended up not running together — but it was still nice to have a running buddy nearby and the Fleet Feet team to cheer us on!
I haven’t run through Green Hills before. Look at all of those big trees.PS – congrats to everyone who ran Ragnar & Marine Corps (shout out to Sokphal & Corey!) over the weekend! If you raced, tell me how you did in the comments section On Saturday night, Anthony and I headed to The Filling Station for our usual weekend happy hour…
and then came home to the kitchen! On the menu: Thai drunken noodles a la Cook Smarts. With one more (foamy!) beer 😉This meal came together pretty quickly (I’d prepped most of it earlier in the day) and I used brown rice noodles + extra veggies to make it healthy-ish.Plus some sriracha to amp up the spice. Look: I made a gif!On Sunday we headed off to church and went for a walk. Look at the leaves!The weekend ended with a family gathering at one of the planet’s most loved restaurants.The only thing more plentiful than the number of toppings at Chipotle: the number of family members I have. So many kids! I love it. That’s a wrap!
