After three weekends in a row of travel, it felt good to be back in Nashville for this past one! Starting with a run along my usual route.Not a cloud in the sky.Despite the beautiful weather it took me a good four miles to get into my groove on this run. I was dragggggging for the first few. Maybe I’m still catching up from the travel over the past few weeks? I even took TWO naps this weekend!I had a goal to finish all ten miles in under 1:20. Made it by one second!!!On Saturday night Anthony and I piled up the grill with everything from our fridge.The star of the show: Cook’s Illustrated Peruvian chicken, which we make on the grill instead of in the oven. Tip: I make 2x the marinade at once, divide it in half, and keep one batch on hand in the freezer! Saves me one less food processor session.Zucchini, corn, and sweet potatoes on the side. All in a purplish hue because my camera was on a wonky setting and I was too hungry to care…Dessert was coffee and music at Ugly Mugs! We went to see our friend’s band. This song is worth listening to for all of my 9-to-5ers. Sunday was chores/errands day with a break for lunch at The Birdhouse! Even on a hot day, I can still eat (Korean) hot chicken.I also met up with Katie for a run! This was her first post-Boston jog and she gave me a mile-by-mile race recap. So proud of her!Anyone else feel like they’re running in a bowl of potpourri lately? Loving the honeysuckle smells, not loving that I’m sneezing every five minutes.I feel like you guys haven’t seen Anthony in a while, so here he is! Yes, I’m at the airfield again. Perfect place for a Sunday afternoon stroll. Last big news item from a very low-key weekend: I tackled the mitered corner. Taking my sewing skills to the next level!Catch you tomorrow!
