Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a nice weekend!  Can't believe tomorrow is November 1st! 

On Friday night Kevin stayed at work pretty late so I ended up meeting him for some Mexican at Loco Lime in the Plaza Midwood area.  It was nice to catch up with him because I hardly saw him all week between all of the things going on each night. 

Saturday morning bright and early my neighbor David and I went out to the airport runway 5k run.

It was pretty chilly out there so I wore a trash bag before the race began.  This was an amazing tip from my Dad which really worked well.  Kept me warm!  They had the hanger open so you could check them out working on the planes.

The start of the race.

See, we literally ran on the runway!

David and I both had our best runs in a long time so that was good!

We went back uptown and I left right away to go do some errands.  I love Saturday mornings and getting things done early before anyone else is out!  I got home by 11am and Kevin had called and said he was out the door to just north of Columbia, SC to pick up a check for work. 

I had the bright idea to go run some more so I picked up another 5 miles and came home for a nice warm shower.  I had a treat that afternoon to get my hair cut....ahh I just love getting it done!  Best part is, the salon is a half block from my condo so I just walk right over there. 

We had a wedding that evening and that deserves a post in itself!  What a wedding it was!

Yesterday we literally did nothing.  Walking to the grocery store was the most exciting thing I did.  I made some crab bisque last night for dinner and that was delish.  ....which reminds me, I need to do a post on some of the meals I've done recently.  I'll do that this week along with the wedding post from Saturday night!

Happy Halloween!


  1. I've always wanted to do the 5k at the airport! If you are looking for a buddy to join next year, let me know. As much as I fly, I think it would be cool to run on the runway. :) Plus I can drive to the airport with my eyes basically closed, ha!
