We had a really fun, friend-filled weekend.
I kicked it off on Friday afternoon with an 8 (!!!) mile run on the treadmill. According to the Nike GPS app, my stats were as follows: 8 miles; 8'30" average pace; 1:08:02 total time; and 980 calories burned. It felt surprisingly good (many thanks to Oprah for the distraction - except for the tear-inducing final song that came on around mile 6, for that, I do not thank Oprah). My knee started to hurt a little at the end of mile 6 - but nothing awful.
We then went with the newly-engaged Emily & Joe to Las Delicias for some much deserved Mexican food. Seriously, I manhandled those chips & guac with the fury that only someone who'd just burned 980 calories could. We had a night cap at Bari, which is quite possibly turning into one of my favorite spots in town. Overall, a super fun night.
We ran errands most of Saturday during the day. I had to get a birthday present for my dad, ie, the most difficult man in the world to shop for. (The most difficult man in the world for which to shop. Yes, I understand grammar rules. I just think it sounds a little too high-brow in some instances.) Anyway - I'm sort of excited about what I got him. I really put my thinking cap on to come up with something great.
Then Saturday night we had a fabulous evening with our friends K.C. and Katheryn. We went to Tsunami and had drinks at the bar followed by an incredible dinner. I mean, a huge, wonderful dinner: a few appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and dessert - oh my! We followed with a night cap at The Beauty Shop. Such a good night - so good to hang out with them.
Sunday was a normal Sunday (church, errands, cleaning of house, football, etc.), which was necessary after so much play. All in all, a great weekend!
