No filter/editing on this. This was the real deal sunrise, people!I wasn’t really in the mood to run this morning but I had a running buddy to help get me out the door. Katie and I covered five dark miles together and chatted away. By the end of it all I was glad I got out there, as usual We parted ways just when the sun was starting to come up. I tacked on two more solo miles and found this little cat for company. He was hiding underneath a (parked) car and scared me for a second!Seven miles in shorts! Considering it was 43 degrees out this morning my wardrobe might have been a bit on the skimpy side. But I’m determined to NOT put on leggings for the next six months. Fingers crossed.Moving right along to something I’m always in the mood for: Mexican food. On the menu this week: black bean salads with extra guac on top.This meal was supposed to be black bean quesadillas, but after we ate our weight in bread and cheese on Sunday, we decided to lighten it up a bit by going the salad route The joy of Mexican food is that the same ingredients can be eaten in any form (on a chip, rolled in a tortilla, stuffed in a shell, served over rice, dumped on a salad) and it always tastes amazing.Any other radish fans out there? I love using them as toppers for mountains of Mexican food but I never know what to do with the leftover ones. I’ve heard you can cook them? I would add cooking radishes to my list of things to do this weekend (because that’s how exciting my weekends usually are) BUT — you guys! — I won’t be able to because I’ll be in DC with these lovely ladies! As part of Anne’s Cabot race team, Sokphal, I, and a handful of other ladies are running the famous Cherry Blossom 10-miler!I don’t have any goals for the race (um, hello, I’ve been to the track three times in six months) other than to enjoy the company and look at the pretty flowers. Speaking of which, check out these gorgeous red flowers I spotted downtown yesterday. Anyone know what they are?
- DC peeps: Anyone else running the Cherry Blossom 10-miler?
- Tips on cooking radishes?
- Can you identify the pretty red flower above? I want to plant some!
