Hello from the train on the way to NYC! Iâ€™m heading up for a girls weekend reunion with my UNC grad school dietitian friends â€“ I canâ€™t wait to see them! This is the first time weâ€™ve been able to get our whole group together in years â€“ long overdue. ðŸ™‚
Speaking of good friends, last night I had my college friends Kathleen and Sarah over for dinner. Sarah hosted us last month and I volunteered to be next â€“ love this new tradition weâ€™ve started.
I decided on a soup and salad combo, and while I chopped veggies we hung out in the kitchen chatting and snacking on a little cheese and crackers. Cabot, obviously! We figured we might as well start fueling for the Cabot-fANNEtastic Cherry Blossom 10 miler team a little early. ðŸ˜‰ They are both joining my group for the race!
I made a Thai coconut chicken soup I was testing out for the blog â€“ stay tuned because Iâ€™ll be sharing the recipe next week! ðŸ™‚ It came out delicious.
The side salads were a simple combo of beets, arugula, and avocado with a homemade balsamic vinaigrette (minus the garlic) and some salt and pepper. Yum!
In other news, check out the beautiful sunrise that my track buddies and I were treated to yesterday morning! The sky was basically on fire â€“ it only lasted a few minutes but it was amazing.
Also amazing? On the other side of the sky, there was a rainbow! Crazy. Weâ€™ve had such weird weather this week â€“ on Wednesday night there were tornadoes and crazy thunder storms!
We did mile repeats during which we had to run the last lap faster than the rest â€“ oof. Great workout, as always! After 3 mile repeats, I did two 400â€™s (one lap) at a speedy pace. My watch just includes the workout, as usual! We also had a group warm up and then I did about a mile cool down jog after with the others.
As for this morning, I was up early and at Definitions via ClassPass for their 6:15am boot camp with Kathleen and Chelsea! Wanted to get in some movement before sitting on the train for hours. ðŸ™‚ Worth the early alarm, as always! No sweaty selfies this week because I had to rush out right after it finished to make sure I had time to get home, shower, and make it to Union Station. I ended up making it to the train station with enough time to grab a latte and a yummy lunch salad to enjoy later on the train. Win!
Have a fabulous weekend, my friends! You can see what Iâ€™m up to in New York on Instagram as usual, and Iâ€™ll be back here on Monday with a recap!
