Un-Monumental

Yup, didn’t do anything super interesting this week! Un-monumental, you may say. In getting ready to move from an ideal downtown location, I decided to soak in the neighborhood as much as possible this weekend.

First up was an 8 mile run along the mall that ended on the Capital Crescent. I was still a bit sore from Wednesday bootcamp (a doozy) but am happy with the under 10 min/mile pace.

I keep switching between not caring too much about the upcoming race and passionately wanting to beat my first year time of 1:57. The next few weeks will be a true test!

Post run I had my second breakfast-of-champions for the day…

Using the roof deck as much as possible!

Then had some friends over for a last-horrah cookout.

Sadly I didn’t even come up with anything original to serve. I new we (I) needed dessert but none of the summer themed recipes were speaking to me, for the exception of blueberry pie but time was a bit cramped. Perhaps for birthday pie! The boxed brownies were just a crime.

On Sunday I continued soaking in downtown charm with my mall panorama. Why don’t I take these more often?!

Happy Shark Week, cheers!
