Happy Monday! This weekend flew by way too quickly. Friday night I was in Charlotte after working there for the day and was able to meet up with my girlfriends for dinner at Sabor. It was so fun to see them and the food was amazing, per usual.
On Saturday, I headed out for a run at Salem Lake. It was pretty deserted out there since it was the Mistletoe half marathon and so many runners in town do that race. It was really peaceful and quiet. AND COLD.
I realized my gloves are not nearly warm enough…my fingers finally re-gained feeling around mile 5 when I was running in the sun. It was really nice to run at the lake – I haven’t done it in ages – and I was really happy with my pace since I haven’t been running long or fast lately. I did 7 miles, averaging an 8 min pace.
After my run, I stopped by Tommy’s for breakfast (he makes killer eggs) and then cleaned my place for FOUR hours – vacuuming, mopping, baseboards, dusting, everything. And then I had some relaxation time with Maizey before meeting some friends for dinner that night.
Last night, I went to the Lovefeast at Wake Forest University with Tommy, Matt and Meg. Lovefeasts are a beautiful Christmas tradition in Winston. I had never heard of it before moving her,e and now it’s one of my favorite holiday activities. This was my first time going to it at Wake Forest though! (Here’s the history of the lovefeast service if you’re interested.)
Hope you guys have a great week! I’d love to hear about your holiday traditions. What do you look forward to every year?
