Hello! How was your weekend? Ours was just the right amount of busy — plenty to do, but (finally) some time to relax as well. Starting with a long run on Saturday!Anthony and I didn’t oversleep this time (thank goodness!) and made it out to join the PR Bandits for their 6 am start. Seems like I was too sleepy to remember to take any pictures because I only managed to snag the photo above and a classic naked people statue shot.I ran two miles before the group met and then joined them for their “12 miles in 12 South” route. I stuck with Katie and Anthony and we finished the whole shebang before 8 am. That’s my kind of run!We spent most of Saturday running errands, though we did make sure to take some time to nap and eat
Here’s our lunch, eaten at the table while we chatted with a Comcast rep who came to fix our Internet. Par-tay!On top: soy sauce/honey grilled chicken, spring roll leftovers, and a peanut/sesame dressing. Oranges for zest and cashews for crunch!Later that evening we met up with Rayna and Kevin for a show downtown at City Winery. Elizabeth Cook was great, and her opener was just as good!We shared a carafe of pinot, poured out of the tap!and a burger. Nashville’s burger week just came to a close and I was craving one! Anthony and I split this beast + an order of mussels. Bubbles!Sunday morning was nice and slow for a couple of hours. And then we hit the trails.We drove out to Mt. Juliet’s Long Hunter State Park’s Volunteer Trail. BTW, National Geographic’s AllTrails is a great resource to find nearby hikes. The 4.5-mile loop wasn’t super challenging, but there was a bit of an incline toward the end that got our heart rates up. Beautiful views of Percy Priest Lake along the way!Running, burger, and hiking buddies.The best part about this walkabout: we finally bought real hiking boots to keep our feet in tact. After I almost died hiking the Walls of Jericho in Nike Frees, we thought it was time to invest in the real deal. (Here’s the link to our matching Merrells!)Where were you walking/running this weekend?
