We spent the weekend exploring the great state of Michigan!
I hadn’t been in Detroit since my marathon last fall, and it was good to be back. This time I didn’t have any race day nerves, which was nice I arrived around noon on Friday and grabbed a quick lunch at a cool spot called The Dime Store while Anthony wrapped up a few meetings (he was in town for work).Then I strolled around the city and stumbled upon Greektown and this lovely little bakery. One macaroon, please!Friday night we drove over to Grosse Pointe. Such a pretty part of the city!We went to an old school American restaurant for dinner and a cheeseburger just seemed right.Anthony got the trout, which was served atop a mountain of the cheesiest risotto of all time.We were both pretty exhausted by the end of dinner and called it an early night! The weird thing about Detroit is that it sits toward the edge of a time zone, so it stayed light out until past 9 pm. We might have asleep before the sun went down…
But we were up bright and early the next morning for a run! The main point of this trip was to celebrate Lizzie and Tommy’s wedding in Kalamazoo! On our way to the wedding we made a random stop in a little town called Jackson to check out a trail I’d found online. The Falling Waters Trail did not disappoint! It was flat, paved, and perfect for running. Only downside is that it wasn’t very shady and it was 85 degrees out when we started running at 10:30 a.m. Yikes.The heat made us feel as slow as this turtle. But we just kept going and finished off all six miles.We drank about 10 glasses of water after the run, stopped for a quick lunch, and then made it to Kalamazoo just in time to clean up and head to the wedding!The event space was gorgeous! And the music and food were spot-on, too. Loved the band!Polenta and veggies:And a pile of desserts! If gluten free always tastes this good, sign me up And the best part of the night: the happy couple! Congrats Lizzie and Tommy. So glad we could celebrate with you!And now it’s Monday? Guess I should unpack and get to work!
