Hello there! How was your weekend? Ours was very low key, but nice. Anthony is fighting a cold right now so a lot of our time was spent drinking tea and watching The Good Wife. We are hooked! Get better, Anthony! And get over yourself, Kalinda.
We did get out of the house a few times, though! On Friday we met up with some friends for beer and cards at our favorite spot — the Filling Station. I placed last! But on Saturday, I placed fourth! For women. In a turtleneck and antlers. At Jingle Bell 5k in Franklin! Full recap coming tomorrow
The race was fast and cold! But a few hours later it warmed up and the day was beautiful. Anthony had a bit of cabin fever so we set out for a very easy three-mile jog. Whenever I run in all black I feel like Claire Underwood...No better way to end a day than with a ten-pound burrito.We met up with my family for dinner and a tour of my parents’ new house! They’re moving over the next couple of weeks and will live closer to all of their kids now
On Sunday morning I went out for one of the prettiest jogs of 2015. There was not a single soul out on the trails except for me, and the air was so frosty and wonderful. I usually try to limit myself to three photos per run but this one is too good not to recap in full. Brace yourself for some run envy:As if those views didn’t make for a perfect run… this lovely pile of street furniture/random crap sure did. Plus a random door sitting out on Riverside Drive. Knock knock.Ten beautiful miles! This long run felt really good. Side note: How did I ever run a marathon? 26 miles seems totally insane to me right now. Flash forward through hours of Sunday chores (and a few more episodes of The Good Wife. oops.)… we closed out the weekend with a lovely dinner hosted by friends. Lizzie made an awesome lentil/carrot soup and I brought the semi-famous roasted vegetable salad!Stay warm out there!
