Weekend Adventures

Hi friends! It was quite the wintery weekend over here – very cold temperatures and our first snow of the season, too! On Friday night, Matt and I picked up dinner at Lost Dog in Arlington and drove up to Bethesda to hang out with our friends Tom and Janice – they just had their second child, so we were excited to meet him! It was a fun night – Continue Reading …

Back on the Run + Recent Eats

Hey guys! I’m so glad many of you enjoyed my “Adding, Not Subtracting, For a Healthier New Year” post yesterday! I’m feeling more or less recovered from my cold now and was excited to get back on the run yesterday for my first official workout of the new year! 4.5 miles with friends under gray/drizzly skies.

Thoughts on Running and Life

Yesterday, I went on a run for the first time in nearly a week and a half (the last one was my annual DC Christmas tree light run). I can’t even remember the last time I went so long without running, but I wasn’t craving a run (and over the weekend when I was, it was too icy), so I didn’t force myself to get one in until I really wanted to. I’ve Continue Reading …

2nd Annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run

On Sunday night, my friend Sokphal and I went on our 2nd annual DC Christmas Tree Light Run! Such an awesome tradition – I highly suggest doing something like this where you live!

Weekend

Hey guys! Matt and I had another low key weekend at home, starting with some Friday night soup! We made a delicious sausage, squash, and veggie soup that was from last week’s Sun Basket (<- affiliate link for 3 free meals) delivery. This was one of our favorite meals so far – so good! Perfect for a cold night. Reminded me of my Butternut Continue Reading …

Brooks Winter Running Accessories Giveaway!

Hey guys – happy Friday! I’m happy to report that Matt and I have successfully made it through all our leftover Thanksgiving turkey and turkey soup. No leftover left behind! Since we kept the homemade turkey broth separate from the leftover turkey and any veggies, we were able to make variations on the soup to keep things interesting. After a Continue Reading …
