Halfway through the week! Thank goodness I have my 6 a.m. run club to look forward to on an otherwise boring Wednesday.
Only four of us made it to the run this morning — I think this end-of-summer humidity is making people sick of running! I stuck with my new running buddy Ashlyn for most of the miles. Introducing one of my favorite homes in East Nashville:
Mile four of the “church run” takes you up a lovely 100-foot incline in 800 meters. Ouch!
The view from the top was nice, though. Sun just peeking out a little past 6 a.m. these days. Almost time to bring out the headlamp.
Five miles, done! Took it easy today and am not running tomorrow. My foot has been feeling kind of weird lately — I need to comb through all of your shoe recommendations and buy a new pair ASAP!
Let’s talk about this huge plate of beef stir-fry. Eaten at 9 pm and we were starving!
This Cook Smarts cumin beef stir-fry recipe was good, but not our favorite. Plus it took way too long to make! Poor Anthony was chopping veggies for about an hour on Monday night while I was at an orientation event (side note, I’m going to start teaching English at the Nashville International Center for Empowerment!) . When dinner finally came together it was pretty tasty, but probably not worth the effort. Oh well!
That’s a runny egg on the side! I could put an egg on almost anything and make it better.
PS do any of you live in these cities? I want to move to all of them. But I disagree with San Fran as #1 place to run in the country… um, have you seen those hills?!
And no, Nashville wasn’t named once on this list of the 50 best places to run in the nation. In fact, Tennessee apparently is home to the fattest city in America. Who wants to help me build more trails around here?
