Weekend Recap: Art, Races & Tickets

Weekend Recap: Art, Races & Tickets

What a whirlwind. It was a busy weekend here. On Friday night Ivan and I attended an Art Gala at the Broad Art Museum. I won the tickets to the event, so we figured we’d check it out. We were a bit out of our element.

Part of the night featured student fashion from the school of design (i think) and there were some pretty outrageous creations. It was almost like seeing a bunch of Lady Gaga clones walking around.

Then Saturday I made the decision to skip the tailgate. Ivan still went, but I had grocery shopping, cleaning and other errands to complete. I picked up my packet for the 5k I was running sunday and got a lot of my other tasks out of the way.

Then Sunday morning I ran my second 5k race – The Screaming Banshee. Ivan and Kidd went with me to cheer me on. My time was a bit slower than the Dino Dash, but I completely expected that. I haven’t had time to run as much lately, so I knew I’d be a bit slower. I still had a great time though and can’t wait to run more.

After the race, Ivan took me out for a celebration meal, where I ate entirely too much. We then promptly went home to nap. After our nap, I did some more shopping with my mom and then got a speeding ticket. Bummer, right? It was not a great end to the weekend.  I wallowed for a bit, did some reading in bed and then made us dinner. And that was the weekend :)

    What a fun weekend! Great job with your second 5 K!

  • Aside from the speeding ticket (bummer!), you had a great weekend. Congratulations on the race. You don’t always have to PR at races. Having fun is all part of the sport :)

  • You weekend started and went well, until that speeding ticket. But all in all, it;s a weekend well spent.
