Weekend Wrap Up

16 Jul

I know it’s Tuesday, but I took yesterday off to spend with my friend at the beach so today’s my Monday!

I had a very active weekend! Friday night I enjoyed dinner with my roommates, Marc and Molly, at a beautiful outdoor patio down the street from us. Las Fuentes was packed because of the beautiful summer weather, and the food was OK. After dinner I cleaned up my room and went to bed early because I had an early morning training run planned.

Sure enough, I woke up at 5:55 on Saturday morning to complete 3 miles. It was already hot and sunny by the time I got outside at 6:30 and my run turned into more of a walk/jog. I met up with a couple of Fleet Feet runners groups and tailed on a few times. Then I looped home, showered, and headed to my parents’ house because my mom and I were off to Madison!

We drove 2 1/2 hours to Madison to experience their famous Farmer’s Market. Unfortunately for us, the Farmer’s Market was on hiatus for a week to make way for the art fair. It was disappointing but we got some cheese curds, fresh bread, and beef sticks and then had a fun brunch. We only stayed for about three hours and then headed back home.

Saturday night my friend Julie had a party at her house so I went there before the mosquitos drove us inside. The wet June in Chicago has brought out all the mosquitos this summer!

On Sunday I completed a 12 mile bike ride at Busse Woods before exploring the Mt. Prospect Famer’s Market with my mom and then heading back to the city for the Cubs game. The Cardinals were visiting and the weather was perfect! I even had the closest seats I’ve ever had thanks to my friend, Walann. Her friend works for the Operational team and hooked it up!

Now I’m back at work and catching up and daydreaming about the sun.

What did you do this weekend?
