Guess what song was playing when I got in the car after my run tonight??
Yep. PERFECT! I rocked all the way home.
So, Kate took me back after ditching her yesterday. I got my muddy shoes and my shirt still wet from yesterday (ewwwww) on down to the creek, and with no distractions from spiteful, overzealous plumbers, I had nothing holding me back.
We did about a 10k in just over an hour, so I’m calling it a win. I’m still having good luck with my legs and feet; though I was probably pushing it by running two days in a row. I need a Jillian yoga day of “rest.”
Here’s moi, sipping on a new beer in my muddy shoes — “stay an inch or two out of kicking distance!”
It’s Two Brothers (Chicago) Barley Wine Style Weisse Beer.
Yeah. I didn’t know what to expect, mostly because when I looked at the label, I read “barley wine” and then quit reading.
I still don’t know if I like it. It was definitely hefty. I couldn’t find an ABV on the label (which is weird in itself, right?) Beer Advocate says 10%; BeerPal says 11%, but you wouldn’t know it from the taste — it went down totally smooth.
I was thinking I was going to get a barley wine, so it was a little too weissy for me. Tart and orangy. I didn’t dislike it exactly, it just wasn’t what I felt like drinking tonight. It would actually be a fantastic patio beer on a sunny day.
And, I’ve been talking about swapping blogs for a day with Daily Beer Review, so if that happens tomorrow, you might be reading my DFH review on his site, and you’ll get some entertaining sarcastic commentary from him on here. If not tomorrow though, soon.
Okay — off to paw around in the fridge and see what I can whip up for dinner. Be good.
