Zauber Brewing & All Time Miles

I may have mentioned I’m signed up for a half marathon in May, which is about 10 more miles than I’ve ever run before.  As of today, it’s only 8 more miles because Josh and I ran 5 miles today at about an 11:00 min/mile pace, on the indoor track at the gym we just signed up for, our local JCC (like a YMCA only Jewish sponsored).

Running 75 laps wasn’t the most exciting thing I’ve ever done, but we were running slow enough that we could chat a bit.  We decided that (i) I would start reading books before bed each night and (ii) I would start going to bed earlier.  In the spirit of setting SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely) goals, here goes.

1. I will read a book (not blogs, the NYTimes, or the Internet) for at least 30 minutes before bed 4 of the next 7 nights.

2. I will turn the lights out by 11:00 p.m. each night this week, so that I can get up by 7:00 a.m.

In celebration of running 5 miles, and because I had a library book to return in Grandview Heights, we had brunch at 3rd and Hollywood (which is pricey, but has good vegetarian options and a sustainable, local focus) and then checked out Zauber Brewing.

Unfortunately, they had sold out of their own beers already.  They have a small brewing set-up, and only release their own beer once a week, on Thursdays.  To make up for it, they had a bunch of other brews (including several local options).  We had a few, including a Red Rye beer, Elektron from Actual Brewing.  We also had churros from the Tortilla Street Food truck, which is the closets to actual Mexican food that I have tasted in a long time — very exciting!
