I had a busy little Friday night after work!
I met my friend Arlene and some of her co-workers for happy hour at McCormick and Schmick’s near both of our offices. If you didn’t know, they do a very good happy hour. Arlene and I ordered a couple rounds of delicious Zinfandel and some apps (of course) that included fried calamari, french fries, and chicken sliders. Sooo healthy… [Read more…]

Moving out of the city has certainly given me more time in the car, as I drive to and from D.C. for work.

Another race down in the books! My trusty running buddy, Katie and I, completed the GW Parkway Classic 10-Miler yesterday. Though this race was a “local” race (in Alexandria), it felt like a mini-destination race because of the process – which wasn’t a bad thing at all! [Read more…]
