Not a bad way to start a Monday:The East Nashville streets were hoppin’ with street food and furniture today. Must be spring cleaning/spring eating season. First, a pile of five mattresses: And second, some lonely pizza crusts orphaned on Riverside Drive. I really don’t understand people who don’t eat their crusts. Speaking of pizza, I randomly discovered Big J on YouTube today, because what else do I do on the computer at 5 am other than Google around for pizza reviews. Big J has 4,000 subscribers and all he does is review fast food for a living. #ToughLifeHis review of Pizza Hut’s stuffed crust has 40,000 views. Wow.
7:47 must be my magic pace lately (see my second watch photo at the bottom of this post). Good run today! 50 degrees is my favorite running temp.So, how was your weekend? Mine included lots of running and cake!Now that my whole fam (12 people in total!) lives in Nashville, whenever we get together there is a good chance it’s someone’s birthday week/month. In the past few weeks we had my mom’s, niece’s, and sister-in-law’s! Cake was in order. I tried out this “perfected yellow cake” recipe and while I can’t say that mine looked perfect, it sure did taste pretty good. It also transported nicely in our 45-minute car ride to Mufreesboro. 😉I’m hoping that Sunday family dinners are here to say (and Mom, if you want to make cornbread every week that works for me…)Oh yeah. And about that running I mentioned! Saturday was gorgeous.I headed down to the airfield and did my usual weekend route.Apparently a few hundred other people had the same idea ;). I ran right into the Tom King Classic half marathoners! It was fun running with these racers for a few miles — they definitely encouraged me to pick up the pace a bit.View from the top:On my way out of the park I ran right into this guy! Anthony and I were both out running different routes at different paces but I thought we might catch up with each other at the end. We finished the last two miles together — teammates for life!And let’s just end this post with a pile of Mexican food. Tried out Little Donkey in Germantown on Saturday and wasn’t disappointed!
