A Sunny DC Weekend

What a weekend! This weekend was jam packed and super busy but so much fun!

Friday after work, I met up with my friend Katie for drinks in Chinatown. We decided to split a bottle of wine because it had been a crazy week for both of us. After drinks, we headed over to Poste to share some food and and down a few beers before calling it a night.

Saturday I was up bright and early to meet Abby for coffee before DC Fit. We started the morning off with a barre class and then were off to a nutrition panel featuring Allison. I sampled some of the snacks from Sweetgreen, Sweat Leaf and Jrink before Abby and I tried to take a yoga class but left after they ran out of mats.

I headed home to meet The Pilot where we planted ourselves on the floor of Barnes & Noble to go through the travel section to start planning our honeymoon!

Then it was off to the airport to pick up Holly who was in town for Cherry Blossom! Holly's awesome friend Steph was in town and we had such a great weekend! We started the night by having dinner at Vapiano. I met up with some other friends there and stayed for a good bit after Holly and Steph left catching up with them.

Sunday morning I was up bright and early to go spectate Cherry Blossom. It was kind of a bummer watching a race that I should have been running but I know that dropping out was the smart thing to do.

Post-race, we went to brunch at Matchbox before heading home to freshen up for the Nationals game.

I finally got excited about baseball season when I walked into Nats park on Sunday afternoon. Even though I hate the Nationals. Even though the Mets are going to be terrible this season. Even though it wasn't my team, it was baseball. And it was glorious.

We spent the afternoon at the game and then headed to Georgetown to grab cupcakes at Baked & Wired and then wander around for a bit before calling it an early night.

It was awesome having Holly in town! We had so much fun with her friend Steph and The Pilot and are already planning another girls' race weekend...hopefully one I'll be able to run in!

Despite walking over 22,000 steps yesterday, I still managed to get in a 2.5 mile run when I got home. It was very twingy and didn't feel great but I'm hoping I can resume my training this week with the aid of some tape and PT.

We'll see. T-3 weeks to the Nike Women's Half.

It's a cold, rainy day in DC today. Hope it's sunny wherever you are!
