Weekend Recap

This was quite the eventful weekend.. as we knew it would be.  We had a bunch of family come into town for the weekend to cheer me on for the marathon :)

Friday night I went straight from work to the packet pick up to get that out of the way so we didn't have to head down there on Saturday.  I took public transportation down to McCormick after work and then back home so it took a little while.  The packet pick up was HUGE.  I could have spent a lot of time there, but didn't feel like wondering around by myself.  So I just stopped in the Nike booth and bought a hat and marathon shirt.  Everything else at the Nike store seemed really over priced.  I wish I could have bought the whole store!

Overall the packet pick up was really smooth and I never had to wait in line at any of the stations.  I thought that the marathon shirt was really boring and expected more out of it, but that was really the only disappointment.  I got home around 7 from the packet pick up and we just had leftovers and pasta for dinner.  We knew Saturday and Sunday would be really eventful so we headed to bed early Friday night after watching a few more episodes of The Wonder Years (our current obsession.)

Saturday morning I slept in and K headed to the gym.  We cleaned our apartment a little and did some laundry since I knew I wouldn't be up for any of that on Sunday.  I wanted to make sure I have everything I needed to do done before I was sore for a few days after the marathon. Saturday for lunch we met my Dad and his wife in Greek town since they were in town to watch my marathon. Greek town is only a few blocks from our apartment so we were able to walk there which was nice.  Saturdays weather was gorgeous and we wanted to be outside all afternoon, but I knew I had to rest my legs as much as possible.  So we just laid on the couch and waiting for our dinner activities. 

We had dinner Saturday night at City Winery with my Mom, Stan, Sister, Nic, and K's parents.  They actually had a large square table which was perfect for 8 people, because you could really talk to anyone.  I didn't realize that it was small plates when I made the reservation, which I'm glad I didn't realize that, because we probably wouldn't have gone there, but it ended up being delicious.  We tried a bunch small items off the menu.  We ended up ordering 12-14 small plates for the 8 of us and it was the perfect amount of food. They have 480 wines on their wine list and even make their own wine there.  There was actually a wedding going on when we were there on Saturday night - they have a large outdoor space and the wedding was even outside!

S'mores dessert! Yum!

It was actually my Mom and K's dads birthday on Saturday which was a great excuse to try some desserts :)  Our dinner reservation was early on Saturday - 6:30 so we were able to still be home by around 9:00 and in bed by 9:30.  I laid out all of my clothes for the marathon on Sunday and headed to bed.  I didn't sleep well on Saturday night - to be expected considering our anxious I was for Sunday morning. 

Clothes laid out!

Sunday we didn't have to get up too early since we weren't far from the start time.  We got up around 6:45 I'm going to do a full post on the marathon, but after the marathon we headed to Lou Mitchells with my parents and K's parents for the celebratory lunch.  The rest of Sunday was spent in pain on the couch.  My mom and Stan brought us over pizza for dinner.  Bless their hearts, because there was no way I was cooking and we were not about to leave the apartment. 

Another marathon in the books!

Jawbone results after the marathon!
Monday night and I am still in so much pain and so sore.  I still haven't completely decided what I am going to do now that the marathon is over.  I don't think it's truly fair to make a decision since I have still in so much pain.  I think I'm going to take a few years off from full marathons and probably do some half marathons.  They just seem to be less hard on my body.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
