I kind of lied when I said I didn’t have any plans this weekend. Yesterday ended up being packed with fun!
I enjoyed a leisurely breakfast of overnight oatmeal, topped with frozen bloobs, pomegranate arils, and peanut butter. It was my first time trying arils – yum!! I was getting into a habit of going for a long run first thing when I wake up without eating anything which isn’t very healthy. That’s no longer a problem!
I got a text from my friend Alyssa asking me to go to Marquette (the biggest town in the UP) for an ice show and out to dinner. Sounds great, except I still hadn’t run yet! So I headed out for a super quick 10k. It wasn’t easy, but I broke 50 minutes! I averaged 7:53. It felt great to get movin’ after my rest day on Friday! I rounded it out at 7 miles for a cool down.
Alyssa picked me up approximately 2 minutes after I got home and off we went! Marquette is about an hour away so we just caught up on our lives until we got to the ice show.
It was fun to watch all of the skaters! Fun fact: I used to be an ice skater. Sometimes I wish that I wouldn’t have stopped!
Then we went out for dinner! Well, more like linner because we got to the restaurant at 3:50 and they opened at 4. Nothing like being the first persons to the restaurant! I had never been there before but Alyssa assured me it was good. Was she right!
I got the butternut squash ravioli in garlic cream sauce and topped with maple syrup. Yeah, it was good.
I had to try Alyssa’s too.
We did a little shopping and headed home! Eating makes me super tired so I took an amazing nap while listening to my music. What kind of music do you guys like? I range from Flo Rida to Rascal Flatts to the Frozen soundtrack to Def Leppard to the Beatles haha. Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!
