This morning, I answered my 5am wake up call by putting on running tights and a hoodie, lacing up my sneakers, and heading to PT. Even with the hoodie, I was still colder than I wanted to be. That's right kids, summer is officially coming to a close.
DC was gorgeous this weekend. The Navy Half Marathon and CureFest for Childhood Cancer were going on and DC is getting ready for the pope's visit, and by getting ready, I mean the city is practically shutting down.
I spent my weekend with some pretty amazing people. The Pilot got home Friday night and we took Peyton to the park and then enjoyed a glass of wine to toast having made it through a thoroughly jet lagged week.
Saturday morning, I met up with a new Junior League friend and we headed to a meeting together. It was the League's official new member kickoff and it was a lot of fun!
I had booked a blow out appointment at Blo Dry Bar in Dupont after the meeting to treat myself and get dolled up for the wedding I was going to that night but my appointment was a disaster. After running 45 minutes long, I had to rush home and fix my hair before rushing out the door.
The wedding was in Old Town Alexandria. The Pilot and I met up with Jenn and her husband for dinner between the ceremony and cocktail reception and then danced the night away.
I was a little worse for the wear Sunday morning but it was gorgeous out and I headed out for a run, stopping at 2 open houses along the way and at a bar where some friends were having brunch...all within the first 5 miles...then I headed out for another 7 around DC. It was in the high 70s and the city was buzzing with just enough tourists. It was perfect. We ended the night with some friends in town for the wedding at Virtue for Sunday Night Football.
I'm not at all excited about summer coming to a close but I think I spent my last weekend of summer the right way!
3 weeks until Chicago! How did you spend your last weekend of summer?
