Weekend: Family, Fayetteville, and Flying Out

This was a good weekend.

It started Friday with having dinner with the family at the Catfish Barn.  I KNEW they would LOVE it….so (even though it wasn’t on the diet) we took them there for dinner Friday night (but not until after I got in a good tri training at the gym! woop!).  Dad and Gram LOVED it.  It’s going to be so nice doing things together now that they live here.

Saturday, I went to mom’s early and we headed out.  I had a 5k in Lavaca (a little town about 20 minutes away)- the 9/11 Memorial 5k.  Firefighters were there running in their gear.  It’s so inspirational.

It was quite humid.  I tired pacing myself with this older guy…but he was running 10 minute miles, and I’m more of a 12 minute girl…so I let him pass me after mile 1.

I did end up walking a little in the last mile or so. It was so humid, I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath. I finished in 37 minutes, and I earned my first running medal!  I came in 2nd place in my age category!!

This was some of the firefighters in their gear. They are heroes for sure!

Then, we stopped by the gym for me to get ready…and we headed to Fayetteville.  I got fitted for some running shoes, we did some shopping, ate some lunch…and saw Jersey Boys!

While we were in Fay, I tried on my bridesmaid dress for Alden’s wedding! Blurry…but you can see it. My dress for her wedding will be black.

Saturday evening, I went to watch Tyler at the RC track.  It’s the first race in a 4-week series, so I’m hoping he can keep it up over these 4 weeks and do well (the winner wins a new RC car!).

Sunday, I was up early to fly out to Cleveland for work.  we had dinner last night at a place called The Chocolate Bar. OMG. I had this yummy berries and chocolate dipping sauce. So good.

Anyway …I’m out this week.  But no worries, I’ll still be writing. πŸ™‚

I hope you had a great weekend!
