Hey friends! Another Monday already, huh? I hope you guys had nice weekends! Ours was hot and humid but packed with fun. 🙂
It was nice to be in town after all our travels to reconnect with friends, family, and my favorite city! Matt and I had a nice low key night on Friday – we made a Blue Apron and relaxed on our deck – it was a beautiful evening.
On Saturday, I was up early for some fitness! It was Global Wellness Day and the Four Seasons in Georgetown hosted some fun health-focused activities that were open to the public. Matt had plans to go biking with some of his buddies (too fast and far for me to tag along!) so when I got a press email about the happenings I decided why not! The day started with a 7 a.m. (oof) run. The Four Season’s General Manager David Bernard is a big runner and leads hotel guests frequently on “Run My City” tours – love that! More hotels should offer guided running tours – such a cool way to explore while traveling. David led us on a speedy 3 mile loop around the monuments – it was already getting hot so the early start time was a good idea!
We were back at the hotel by 8 a.m. for a little outdoor yoga led by a local yoga instructor. Love doing yoga outside – great morning for it too since we were in the shade!
After the fitness fun I attended a press breakfast in their Seasons restaurant – their egg frittata with all sorts of spring veggies was awesome. I got some bacon (and unpictured berries) on the side!
The rest of Saturday was spent being social! Matt and I went to a family gathering for my uncle’s birthday in the afternoon, and then we spent the evening grilling out and relaxing at a friend’s apartment roof deck in Arlington. Beautiful views from up that high!
On Sunday morning, I met up with my friend Karen for a run date! We hadn’t met up in way too long due to busy schedules so it was great to see her and catch up. It was SO hot by the time we met around 9 a.m., though – I always forget how much harder running in the heat is! Oof!
We made it 3 miles before deciding to enjoy a nice walk for the rest of the miles. 🙂 We had a nice stroll around shaded Roosevelt Island – so beautiful with all the green!
Matt and I had some friends over for a BBQ at our place yesterday early evening. This is the only photo I snagged because I was too busy enjoying myself. 🙂 My friend Kathleen brought that beautiful veggie grain salad!
This is going to be a crazy busy week because Rachael, Alex, and I are launching the first session of our Joyful Eating, Nourished Life virtual group intuitive eating program one week from today! We only have a few spots left so sign up today if you’d like to join us. The program won’t be offered again until late fall and the price will go up (it’s being offered at a special introductory rate for this first round). You have until this Thursday at 9 a.m. EST to sign up – that’s when we’ll close down sign ups and finalize our participant list.
Have a great day, my friends!
Would you rather run in really hot or really cold weather? I’d definitely take really cold… but of course I prefer perfect running weather. 😉
What’s your ideal running temperature? I like 50s or 60s and sunny with no humidity for casual/training runs… for races I prefer a little chillier, like the 40s but still sunny!
