The Fairest Week In Review: 4/08

JENN: So - how was your training this week?

MOON: Remarkably uneventful, but steady.

JENN: Sounds like an improvement! I had a much better run on Tuesday and then a much worse run on Thursday, so I'm not quite sure where I stand.

I'm running the 17.75K - a skosh over 11 miles - on Saturday so I think I might mostly walk this week. Try to get the legs back.

MOON: Oh, yay! Good luck!

JENN: Thanks!

MOON: Walking will probably be a nice break before the race

JENN: How are things otherwise? New music? New sneakers? Anything fun?! It's been dreary and rainy for DAYS and I'm desperate for something cheery...

MOON: Hmm... It HAS been dreary! Let's see... Christian and I are making kimchi?!

JENN: Ooh! Spicy-nice!

MOON: It has to sit out for the next few days. My kitchen smells lovely.

JENN: Ah, cabbage.

MOON: He had some fermented soy beans and my goodness it was the smell of... if feet had butts.

JENN: Makes you wonder how this stuff got started... desperation, I guess. I mean, clearly kimchi is tasty, but some serious leaps of faith had to be made to get to the first batch.

MOON: I suppose something to do with methods of preserving foods?

  1. "If feet had butts" is absolute poetry.

  2. You are so nice to include us yet again. We appreciate it! By the way, that kimchi dog from the F&W festival looks amazing.

    1. Sure thing!

      Doesn't it? I'm SO excited to finally get to the F&W Festival this year!
