Weekend Adventures

It’s officially spring in DC, at least as far as the weather is concerned, and I took full advantage the past few days – starting on Friday morning with an early morning run with my friend Sokphal! Track workouts are great and all, but there’s nothing like a DC monument sunrise. It was so nice to get out there and enjoy one! It was also weirdly Continue Reading …

Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs

I have an awesome spring-themed brunch recipe to share with you all today: Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs.

Some of them were a little intense… I loved the puppy one, though – it made me tear up! Anyway! We had a low key weekend. Workout Continue Reading …

July 4th Weekend Highlights

What a fun weekend! DC had gorgeous weather (which is VERY unusual for 4th of July – it’s usually brutally hot) and Matt and I took full advantage. On Friday morning, I got in a nice run – 5 super hilly miles – and then Matt and I parked ourselves at our apartment pool for the day. That evening, we watched the DC Fireworks via kayak with my Continue Reading …

An Urban Workout Adventure + AcroYoga!

We had the most beautiful weather in DC over the weekend – cool but super sunny – the type of days made for playing outside. On Saturday morning, I met my college friends Kathleen & Sarah for a workout adventure: the 9 a.m. OutRun put on by Roam Fitness. (FYI: they are offering FREE Saturday morning OutRuns all summer – all you have to do Continue Reading …
