I hope you have all had a great morning so far!
Mine started with sunrise yoga on the roof at our new gym…it was a little chilly to start but seeing the mountains in the distance was super cool and totally worth the extra layers.
In other fitness news, I found a fun running group here called Run Denver.
They meet on Monday nights at 6:45pm at a cute little Italian restaurant called DiFranco’s.
Oh yeah, and everyone stays after to enjoy a free beer 🙂 I love it when people combine socializing with being active!
I arrived pretty early on Monday night because I wasn’t sure how things would go and I didn’t want to feel rushed.
Because I was early, I was able to scope out the cute and delicious looking restaurant.
Homemade pasta, pesto, tomato sauce, Italian dressing, and pastries just stared at me in the window.
Apparently, they serve Nutella gelato made in house too…definitely going to have to try that at some point.
When 7pm rolled around, we set out to run on the Cherry Creek Trail for a 3 mile out and back route. At the halfway point, we stopped and did a little work on some stairs, then turned around and headed back to DiFranco’s.
There were 15 people who showed up to run at all different paces and it was so fun! I love running in new places because it’s a great way for me to get “a lay of the land,” and I love running with other people (especially people I have just met!) because I think it’s fun to chat while running.
I had a really great time at the running group, now I just need to get Brian to come with me!!
In other news, last night Brian and I enjoyed a meal with spaghetti squash.
While I LOVE fall squash, I absolutely hate having to cut the squash. I fear for my fingers every. single. time. Honestly, I normally have Brian cut the squash for me.
Anyways, I was home alone yesterday and wasn’t quite sure what to do about the squash. I knew that I COULD cut it if I really had to, but I wanted to see if there was another alternative…and there was!
Cooking the spaghetti squash in the slow cooker!
I used the method from Family Fresh Meals and it couldn’t have been easier. AND it tasted better. There was a deeper, richer, more “buttery” flavor to the squash.
Seriously, if you like to eat spaghetti squash, you have to give Corey’s method a try 🙂
Time to head out for the day, so I’ll talk to ya lata!
