Monday morning! Unfortunately daylight savings stole all of my morning sunlight for you. The skies were dark until the last half mile of my outing.Anthony and I met up with my friend Katie for today’s run. She pushed the pace! In a good way.So, how was your weekend? Ours was full of fun with a special guest! Meredith came all the way from New York to hang out.A bit of snow delayed her flight on Friday, but she arrived just in time for some burgers at The Pharmacy. This place never disappoints! Afterward, we felt like hanging out on the couch and watching a movie. Perfect.
Saturday morning the three of us headed to Stones River Greenway for some sunshine. Don’t laugh at my mittens… they’re the best. Also impossible to lose in the laundry.Despite the clear skies and warmer temps, there was still a bit of snow on the ground! I don’t mess around with ice so when we came across slick spots I just stopped and walked. #champThis was my first longer run since the half marathon. Legs a little tired, but otherwise I felt fine!At the end of the run Anthony spotted a payphone. Tried to make a call, Serial-style.After hot showers and a power nap, Meredith and I were ready to hit the town. We shopped around the boutiques of East Nashville before refueling with a flight from Fat Bottom brewery.Followed by a round of corn hole! Look at that form.
I might retire from running and pick up this sport instead. What do you think?
Saturday night we avoided the restaurant rush and cooked at home instead. Pad thai!!Instead of the usual chicken, we went with shrimp + tofu for toppings. Plus some veggies mixed in!A bit of vino on the side…And another drink for good measure. We’d never been to The Crying Wolf before, but were impressed with their lineup of creative cocktails! And by creative I mean strong. This one packed a punch!Meredith and I rallied on for some live music downtown (with Anthony as our ride there — thanks, dear!). This is Nashville, after all…Then called it a night. Phew!
Before she left on Sunday, we snuck in one last outdoor stroll through Shelby Park. Beautiful day!And happy day. Thanks for visiting, Meredith!And now it’s back to the real world, friends. Have a good one!
