Aracely's in La Grange, which is an awesome little shop that permits our sweaty antics. They also have the most amazing tamales in pork and chicken, as well as delicious coffee. My favorite treat is the mokalita, which is a Mexican hot chocolate with a shot of espresso. Warms my bones post run.
Please note the absolutely driving snow. And the fact that I'm unrecognizable. I'm the second from the left, for reference.
So we set out for our miles and it was brutal. I went with regular shoes today since I was so sore after using the screw shoes last week. It was so slippery that when I finally found some bare pavement, it felt like my feet were griping the cement with claws. I will be sore tomorrow, no doubt. In addition to the crosstraining of running in slush, we also helped push a seriously stunned motorist's car out of the snow. I just watched, because they had it taken care of, but who doesn't love a little philanthropy while out running?
When all of that terrible sloshing around was over with (9:33 pace overall, surprisingly), we had tamales and treats at Aracely, then set out for some rare brews we heard an upscale shop around the corner had. They let us sample it in store, too, and it was delicious.
How was your Saturday?
