Ballpark #6: Orioles Park at Camden Yards

Ever since I started telling people that I wanted to visit every Major League Baseball stadium, I always get asked: Have you been to Camden Yards yet? And I can finally say YES! Camden Yards was beautiful and a great place to watch a ball game!

Orioles Park at Camden Yards

The best part? I think that of the 42,000 people that were at the park on Saturday night, 30,000 of them were Mets fans =) And the Mets not only played a great game but swept the series against the Orioles this weekend! So I was happy!

Matching Mr. Met shirts at Camden Yards!

Great weekend overall and now it's back to reality as they say! I'm back to Boston tomorrow after my two week mini-vaca at home, but it's time to play a tourist in my own city and get out and see all those things that I haven't gotten around to seeing in the year I've been there!

Oh and update with my knee? I'm feeling much better! After the Japan v. Cameroon World Cup game which I'm watching now, I'm going out for my 2-3 mile easy jog to see how I feel! I bought some Compression Socks so I'm going to take this whole R.I.C.E. thing seriously when I get back and we'll see how I'm feeling for an evening run tomorrow!

Pending that all goes well today, my training schedule for this week is:

Monday: 2-3 mile easy jog
Tuesday: 5 miles easy
Wednesday: 20-30 minutes non-impact cardio
Thursday: 5 miles
Friday: 20-30 minutes non-impact cardio
Saturday: 3 miles
Sunday: 9 miles

Let's hope I can get through this schedule pain free so that I'll be in good shape for next weekend's race!

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. You must be so disciplined to keep yourself on such a steady workout schedule! I envy you for that - my non-serious running has been not going well because of my work schedule. Hopefully soon I can get back at it.

  2. Haha, how awesome are those shirts?! Mr. Met praying...love it!

    Hope your running goes well this week!

  3. Aw... I grew up going to Orioles games. I cannot get behind the Nationals. Yuck. I might be a DC girl, but my heart is always with the Baltimore Orioles. :-)

  4. That is my favorite park EVER. Killer food. I'm all about the food and beer at ball games. Ah ha ha!

  5. wow that ballpark looks amazing! you're doing so great at crossing things off your list!

  6. oh i went to lunch with mr intel, i'll post soon :)

  7. How are you going to come to my hometown, Baltimore, and cheer for the Mets?! Gave me a breakkkk. At least fake it for a minute and like the Orioles :-) We will be good again one day! When we had Cal Ripken and Brady Anderson, we were great. Glad you enjoy Camden Yards though :-)

    P.S - I'm just giving you a hard time lol :-)

  8. Look like a blast!!! Yay! Hope your week turns out great, excellent schedule you have!!

  9. Glad your knee is feeling better...hope yuo can stick to your schedule. :) I have compression socks that I wear after my long run...love them!!

  10. I have never been to Camden Yards but we once passed it on a class trip down to DC! I love that idea, every ballpark! I have been a terrible baseball lately, I have YET to go to a game at the new Yankee stadium. Hell, I'll even suck it up and go to a game at Citifield one day (just as long as its not a subway series!) because I hear its an awesome stadium.

  11. hey! visiting from 'Life of Meg', i love your blog and i really like the 25 before 25 list. I'm 23 also and you may have just inspired me to make a list of my own. and i'm a new follower =)


  12. Nice! I heard an interesting fact today. This day in 1976 is the only day that the Astros game was "rained out" in the Astrodome. Turns out there was a huge flood and the roads were shut down so they had to cancel the game.

    Oh, and I'm not going to the World Cup, but my hubby is - for two weeks. He leaves tomorrow!

  13. i love going to the ballpark. this really makes me want to go to a game now!!

  14. LOOVVEEE your blog!! 25 before 25 is such an awesome idea! :) My boyfriend is a huge MLB fan and wants to visit all the ballparks some day. Can't wait to read more!!

  15. Thanks for checking out my blog!! :) I love the 25 before 25 idea! I need to do that!! My boyfriend is a huge MLB fan and would love to see all the ballparks. Can't wait to read more!!
