A Run and a ‘Rita

After a long, busy work week I met a friend for a run last night.  Since it’s still 1000 degrees in south Texas we decided we should meet at 7pm when it’s “only” in the mid-90s.  At 6:15 I realized all my (good) running clothes were in the hamper, and ALMOST said forget it!  I rummaged through my drawers and found some old shorts with a too-tight-waistband and a top that was not my favorite.

It was great bitching venting about our week.  Running with a partner usually involves talking – so it’s a good challenge to keep up your pace and try to control your breathing.  It sounds like this:

“(Huff, puff)  So today was so (huff) freaking (puff) crazy right!?”


Love my Texas skies.

I had looked forward to running all day.  It felt great to run into the sunset.


Nothing says Tex-Mex like a frozen margarita in a cactus-stem glass!

And I was also looking forward to this reward all day.  After my run, my husband and I had a late night dinner at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants.  I broke from my vegetarian diet – I do this about once a month and it was high time – and had my fave dish here – Fideo with picadillo meat and beans.  It’s a type of Mexican noodle soup.  Perfect end to the week!
