Okay, it has been A LONG TIME since I have posted. My job has gotten busier with a new position added to the one I already hold. The weekends have also been packed with lots of summer fun. Happy June 1st!!! It was a beautiful day and weekend for exercise and being outside in general.
Hmm…I guess I will recap two weekends ago. After a 7 mile run in the morning, Damian and I decided last minute to go to a Nationals game. He bought tickets online, we get there and the tickets were for the next day’s game, then we went to exchange them but couldn’t because they were bought online, so we got discounted club seats for Saturday’s game. Awesome seats!
Oh yeah, we were like 2 hours early to the game (because the Sunday time was earlier than Saturday’s). It was pretty cool to watch the warm-ups, eat, and sit down before anyone else was sitting around us.
The next day….I was back at Nationals stadium for another game! This time my Mom came with me because Damian had to drive back to North Carolina.
Time for a #selfie
Mom and Ian Desmond 🙂
Comparing myself to the baseball players…pretty close.
Thanks to Damian for another great set of seats. My Mom had her fingertip on a foul play that bounced into our section, but an old man grabbed it and gave it to a child. So at least the child ended up with it haha. What a great view of the game.
You HAVE to try the DMV dog at Nationals stadium. It is a DC hot dog, with Maryland crab, and Virginia ham. Delish! My Mom and I split this amazing-ness:
Okay flash forward through the work week, including a few 3 mile runs after work, and it was Memorial Day Weekend spent in North Carolina. This is the highlight of the weekend, time spent with Damian at the beach. Another sunny and 75 degree day, can’t ask for anything better. Also, it was warm enough to swim in the water. Damian was in and out so quick I missed it though…..
Fast forward again through another long and tiring work week. This Saturday morning I ran with a group of Fleet Feet friends and we ran 8 miles! My sister and I ran together the whole time. Then we had a post-run brunch party at our house.
We then went to pick strawberries, I highly recommend it. It brings back childhood memories.
Then we saw the movie: A Million Ways to Die in the West. It was funny at parts but it is a certain kind of humor that I don’t always get. But it was funny so you should decide for yourself if you want to see it!
Today was a relaxing day filled with a recovery run of 2.5 miles, watching the dogs swim in the creek, and getting a massage.
Does the weekend have to end??? Have a great week!!!!
The best part about my weekend was strawberry picking!
What was the best part about yours?
