I made it back to Missouri! It’s great to be back. I didn’t realize it has been 7 or 8 months since I had been here last, but you know why I love my little town of WashMO? Because when I come back nothing changes. Which actually isn’t that true because they keep building things and trying to expand our nice little town, but I can easily avoid all of that nonsense by staying in my nice little neighborhood/downtown bubble. I’ve already ran into old friends and went to see my old dentist and life is good
I am working from home today because there was really no reason for me to take a vacation day and it would have to be unpaid and no one likes that. No one. Anyway, so I had my alarm set to wake up and go for a run before starting the work day. That did not happen. I even set my phone on something that would require me to get out of bed to turn off. Still did not happen. My flight didn’t get in to St. Louis until midnight last night, which means we got home a little after 1:00am…so it was a little ambitious to begin with. In long story form, I am telling you that I am hoping to get in my first Missouri run this evening. I’m pretty excited to see how this lower elevation thing goes, and to run on all of my old routes and hopefully dominate them all
This certainly isn’t a bad view while you’re working..
For lunch we went to a St. Louis staple, Imo’s Pizza. So, so good. The pizza is super thin crust and is cut into squares…which is why they’re slogan is “The Square Beyond Compare”. They use Provel cheese which is the bomb.com and one of the main things they are known for. I’ve never been able to find it outside of the STL area, but I wish it was a worldwide thing. They also have the best toasted ravioli and salads. The salad is by no means healthy. I don’t know what their house dressing is (it’s their own dressing that you can buy by the bottle) but it’s addicting. It’s some type of sweet something…that’s all I know. And it’s also delicious as a pizza dipper or a cracker dipper or a t-rav dipper or even just a finger dipper.
The wedding festivities officially begin tomorrow at 9am when we start setting up/decorating the brewery! Have I mentioned how excited I am for this?! Ahhhh, it’s finally here!! I also got a notification on my phone while I was at the airport that it was exactly 1 month until I’d be back at the airport to head home again for Ali’s bachelorette party and wedding. So many weddings and so much happiness!
Have a great day!!!
