Healthy Ashley and her fiancé Richard came to Charlotte today for a day-trip, so we met up for lunch!
Ashley and I met in Orlando and quickly became fast friends – it’s kind of ironic we both moved to North Carolina and now only live 2 hours from each other!
Probably one of my favorite memories of Ashley is when we both got off our bikes and walked up Sugarloaf Mountain during the Metric:
I thought we would never finish that race!
I took Ashley and Richard to Luna’s Living Kitchen, a raw/vegan restaurant in South End. They were impressed by the local flair.
I got the quinoa/kamut burger:
And the salad, which was so delicious.
Back to work I go!
Looking back at the races that Ashley and I did together got me really excited for some of my upcoming races – I just hope my body holds up through training, and my foot doesn’t hurt as I try to increase distance. Slow and steady is my motto… I’m doing a long run this evening, so keep your fingers crossed for me! 🙂
