Here’s a tip:
If you stroll into a running store on a Monday afternoon, with your “assistant” in tow, and announce that you need new sneakers because you have, like, tons of pairs but you left allllll of them at your house in the Hamptons? And then look at your watch and exclaim that you’ll have to come back in a couple of hours because you’re late for your pedicure?
I will judge you.
For what it’s worth, the “assistant” looked suitably embarrassed at the situation.
Ahhh, the Upper East Side. Always entertaining.
Today’s EAT: Take out time!
All too often when I think “take out” my mind automatically jumps to pizza or Thai food. But there’s no reason a fresh, delicious sandwich from the fabulous Grey Dog’s Coffee can’t be quick weeknight carryout too!
This one had turkey, brie, spicy berry mustard and granny smith apples. It was huge – the hubs and I split it, along with the chips it came with, for a perfect light dinner!
Today’s DRINK: I picked up this boxed Bandit Sangria a while back with picnic aspirations. But since we’re been so busy lately…
Living room picnic on a Monday night! Viva La Fiesta, indeed.
Today’s RUN: An easy ~6 miles. I ran home from work and it was so nice to have slightly cooler weather tonight! This was the first run I’ve done in recent memory where I haven’t been dripping wet with sweat at the end.
Today’s QUESTION: How often do you get takeout/delivery? I try to limit to once a week around here. Cooking really is healthier most of the time, and certainly more cost-effective. But I’m thankful to have so many great options around here on the days where cooking just isn’t happening!
And also: NYC runners, wanna race this weekend? Come out to Prospect Park for the CPTC Founder’s 5K! I know there are lots of NYC runner-bloggers out there I haven’t met yet. I’ll buy you a beer after the race if you come out! 🙂 Register online here!
