Busy Weekend Ahead

We have a busy weekend ahead and I thought we should post an update about it in case it’s Sunday or Monday before having the energy to do it!

Yesterday, Benjamin had a 7:30am flight to Austin, TX for a conference. We both were up by 5am. I decided the night before that getting up early and running would be a good idea. I did something crazy earlier in the week, I signed up to run the half marathon at the end of April in Louisville. I did it last year, but I haven’t been training. Last year, I started training in mid-January. I have a pretty intense training schedule for the next 7 weeks.

That also means that we’ll be coming back to Louisville for a visit at the end of April. Yay!

The Boston Celtics played last night and ended up losing. But I went out to pick up some Mediterranean carry out before it started. I went to a place called Moody’s Falafel Palace. Louisville also played basketball last night, but it didn’t start until almost 10pm. I was tired and they didn’t play good in the first half, so I went to bed at half time.

I woke up this morning and saw that the Cardinals went into overtime against Notre Dame and won! Wow! That means that they play again tonight!

I also looked at our weather forecast and it looks great:

What’s on tap for this weekend then?

Benjamin is at the conference until Tuesday, and today I am going with Tonya on a road trip. We’re going to start in Concord, MA and see where we go from there. In Concord is a museum and the Orchard House (home of Louisa May Alcott who wrote Little Women). I am also taking a real camera today so that I can get some good pictures!

On Sunday, I have the 5K race and I also need to get in an extra few miles. I haven’t decided whether to do it before or after the race. Depends on when I can go and pick up my t-shirt and race numbers.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
