Clarendon Outing

Last night my friend Katie and I took an outing to Clarendon, VA (a suburb in Northern Virginia) after work. We had plans to pick up our race packets for the Clarendon 10k on Saturday and then were going to grab a bite to eat at Liberty Tavern. It was a pretty good evening out in the ‘burbs if I do say so myself. 🙂

I really like the race day shirt that came in our race packet. Usually I am not a fan of these, but I was pleasantly surprised. I may even wear it on race day!

I grabbed a couple of running snacks as well. A former co-worker used to swear by Honey Stingers so I thought I would give them a try.

I also had a chance to pick up new running shoes! I am a little overdue for them, but will still run in my older pair for tomorrow’s race for consistency purposes. I currently run in Asics Tt 2000s.

After running our running errands (haha), it was time for dinner!

We each started with a glass of Pinot Griggio and Tavern salads. (Field greens, market vegetables, red wine shallot vinaigrette).

For our entrees we both decided to get a half portion of the Gnocchi. (Mushrooms, arugula, house ricotta, black truffle).

For dessert we split the Pumpkin Creme Brulee, (which I forgot to snap a photo of before we delved in…) So tasty!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


For you race runners out there, do you usually like the shirts you get for the races?
