Hello from the land of the sporadic poster! All good!
It’s Friday. I’m thrilled that it’s Friday. I actually had a short week (more on that later) but it still felt pretty long. I hate how that always happens.
Some highlights of the past two weeks or so…
DC! I was in DC last week for my “bachelorette party”. I put that in quotes because it definitely wasn’t your traditional party. I’m too old for that sh*t. 🙂
DC may be one of my favorite cities, so I was thrilled to have the party there. We stayed at a great hotel – shout out to the Kimpton Mason & Rook.
I’m still gathering photos so I don’t have a ton to share. But…there was one surprise guest! (see if you can find her)
The trip was a bit of the touristy stuff (mainly checking out the monuments) and then good food, friends, and good times.
Sunday night we saw Judd Apatow do standup, which was quite fun. Saturday morning we went SUPing. Also very fun, although the heat hit me a bit hard so I spent the last bit on my knees (versus standing).
We ate at some delicious restaurants and enjoyed lots of drinks as well. The hotel has a wine hour every day at 5p, so you can be sure we never missed one of those!
Running I’m running. Probably not where I should be for the half in October but I’m confident that I will get there. I’ve been having a REALLY hard time waking up in the morning, so I need to figure out the cause and work on fixing that.
I actually ran twice while in DC. Friday morning on the treadmill and Saturday outside. For some reason I love the treadmills with the virtual running paths. I ran through Germany! It’s the little things 🙂 Saturday’s run took us to the white house and then past some monuments (Washington, Korea, Vietnam). Love me some DC!
Right now I’m trying to decide between OTF tomorrow or attempting a 6 mile group run. I haven’t come close to 6, so I’m wondering if it’s stupid to even try. Hmmm.
Vegan I was not vegan in DC. I craved carbs and cheese…and eggs. Oh well! I’m back at it now.
I made this last night. African peanut sweet potato stew courtesy of Vegangela (again). As I was making it I wasn’t too sure about it. It seemed good in theory but I just wasn’t sure it would have enough flavor. It did! I added a bit more spice to it, but other than that I stuck pretty closely to the recipe and it was delicious! Give it a try!
So that’s what’s going on here. Hope you have a most wonderful Friday and a great weekend!
