packing up!

I needed a reminder on why it can actually be nice waking up in the wee hours of the morning. Ta-da!


Three quick miles before we had to get the day started. I still haven’t showered yet because I wanted to sit down as soon as possible to talk to you fine people!


Local readers — is anyone running the Rock ‘n’ Roll DC half this spring? I was thinking today that maybe I’d sign up. It’s been too long since I ran up the Calvert St. hill.

Anyways, today’s to-do list includes cleaning out our fridge, showering at some point, buying Alice some shorts, and starting to pack up for the big trip down under! If you’re a new reader, you might not have learned yet that Anthony is from Brisbane. Flashback to our last Australia adventure in 2015:


I can’t wait to run in summer weather again. My poor ears are still numb from this morning.

One last meal to share from the week. Hot and sour soup + veggie fried rice. All that spice called for a crisp beer, too!


I’ve never had hot and sour soup before so I have no idea how authentic this was. After the soup simmered for a while, we stirred in some whisked eggs right before serving. Never done that before!


And so the weekend begins. See you from the other side on Monday, sometime probably close to 2 am US time!
