Coffee date!

A Starbucks recently opened down the road from us and it’s going to be dangerous. Baby and I strolled there yesterday morning right after my run. After a toasty three miles, cold coffee sounded just right.

I’m still loving the local Ashburn trails! Some are better than others but at least there are a few shady green spots to jog along. One day I’ll drive out to the W&OD trail nearby for a “real” run longer than 5 miles, but for now I’m squeezing in as many short jogs as I can close to home :)

Another day, another run:

I felt a little sore for a couple days after my 5k last week, but other than that the legs have been feeling great lately. I definitely run a lot less these days and think it’s probably a break I’ve needed for a long time.

That being said, I am looking at half marathons for the fall and perhaps a full for the winter… any recommendations ? :)

Moving right along to snack time. When I was pregnant I had very few food aversions — I think yogurt might have been the only one! One year later and we’re finally friends again.

Other summery eats = grilled everything. Anthony got a hibachi grill that is awesome for grilling flaky fish, tiny chopped vegetables, and (most importantly) pancakes. And steak!

^^ Mashed potatoes simply don’t photograph well. Sorry!

Is anyone watching the new season of House of Cards? The only way to get through the drama is with beer and pizza. I thought the rat Baltimore glass was fitting, too!

As for the pizza, look at this gem we got at Wegmans (the best grocery store of all time). It had a yummy mix of meats and cheese and we added some grilled eggplant on top.

And that’s my little slice of life for the day. Talk soon!

  1. Oooooh a Starbucks within walking distance = a dream come true! But yes, definitely dangerous!

    That pizza looks amazing! I hate to commit to a fave food b/c I love all food, but pizza is definetly in the top 3.

    Happy pre-Friday!!!
