It's August and we are only a few weeks away from cooler mornings and darker evenings. This means that school is approaching for Mark and half marathon(s) training started a few weeks ago. This time around I increased the intensity of my training from last year's plan. The upside to this is that I ran 8 miles this past Saturday and felt great. The downside, however, is that my weekly mileage is higher (not including cross training) and I am simply exhausted. Even as I write this I'm really craving some coffee.
Our trip to DC was fantastic--we sucessfully sweated through every article of clothing that was brought. :) It was a great trip though. The highlight was probably going to the Holocaust Museum which you can read a wonderfully written recap from my husband on obsilence.org
A delicious restaurant in DC
Discovered how to freeze fresh herbs. Chop up, put in ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze.
Chilled Swiss Oatmeal from this cafe/bakery chain in DC. Seriously...chilled oatmeal is probably the best thing I've ever tried.
A picture from Shelby Farms after I finished my run.
A street in DC that was lined with food trucks during lunch hour. If it wasn't so hot we would've gotten lunch from one of them.
