Weekend Wrap-Up: Truckeroo, A 10K Milestone and Brunch

Happy Monday, everyone! I’m linking up with Tara at Running ‘N’ Reading and Katie at Marvelous in my Mondays for this week’s weekend update. 

Screen Shot 2015-05-31 at 8.11.55 PMHi, friends! I ran my first 10K on Saturday!!! I’ll recap it on the blog tomorrow, but I am so happy and proud of myself for accomplishing a new milestone. Although I know I don’t need races to call myself a runner — I feel a little more like one than I felt on Friday.

Let’s get to the weekend. I went to Truckeroo on Friday night in the Navy Yard and chose a grilled cheese with carmelized onions from The Big Cheese truck for dinner before the race! This would have been a fine idea had I not followed it with an ice cream sandwich from Captain Cookie. Don’t get me wrong — it was the best ice cream sandwich I’ve had.  I chose vanilla ice cream mashed between one warm chocolate chip and and one peanut butter cookie. Unfortunately, my stomach didn’t appreciate the delicacy as much as my tastebuds did. Luckily, it didn’t affect my race in the morning, but I was nervous.

On Saturday, I woke up early, walked over to the Lawyers Have Heart 10K on the Georgetown Waterfront and earned my first medal. After the race, I walked home, showered and treated myself to brunch at Founding Farmers. I ordered eggs florentine and a mimosa, but once my breakfast arrived I decided to request my favorite strawberries + cream waffle too. I received a few funny looks from the people next to me, but I was starving. No regrets. I didn’t have a lot of food to eat in my apartment post-race so by the time I reached the restaurant…I was ready to inhale everything in sight.

Sunday’s dinner included a lemon pepper salmon and an incredible spinach, quinoa and roasted vegetable side my roommate made. Sunday also included one heartbreaking Game of Thrones finale. Why do we subject ourselves to the pain?!

That moment when you try to plate a meal nicely but end up splitting the salmon…

How was your weekend? Do you have a lot of food trucks where you live? Did you also catch last night’s GoT finale?

  1. Victoria, I kind of did this backwards and read your race recap first – ha! So, congratulations again on a fantastic race! Your post-race meal looks delicious; I think that’s my favorite thing about racing – ha! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog; hope you have a great day!


    1. When I ordered the waffles in addition, I told the waitress I had run a 10K this morning and she said, “We’ve had a lot of runners in today treating themselves!” And I laughed because I bet it was so true! 🙂
