Wow- what a weekend I just had! Seriously, I had so much fun this entire weekend. Summer is flying!!!!
I celebrated my birthday ALL DAY Friday- I told you, I love birthdays! And yes Jamoosh, I really am 29!!!! A little recap of the day, photo style:
Breakfast at the Pop Shop- local hot spot around here with AMAZING french toast. They are known for their grilled cheese sandwhiches…they even beat out Bobby Flay when he came here to do a throwdown for his show!
The night was so much fun- a lot of people came out…I drank more than I have in a year I think and we took 23978 photos! Probably my best birthday in recent years!
The next day I had to pull myself together (which was NOT easy) and get over to the expo for packet pick-up. We were told that there was a high chance of a DU because of all the rain we were getting. Bummer, but the truth is, I was glad to know in advance. Even though I was not happy about a DU, at least I wasn’t dissapointed the next day. They told us it wasn’t definite but most of us knew in our hearts it would not be a Tri.
After the expo I came home and slept off some of the night before and then headed over to my friend Sarah’s 30th birthday. I couldn’t stay long because my friend Darek was in town from CT and I hadn’t seen him since Christmas. He was at a mutual friends house for a BBQ so I stopped by for a little before heading home to pack for the race. I was exhausted but could not sleep. I think I finally drifted off around 1:30am or so which made the 4am wake up call pretty brutal.
As for the actual race report…well, you’ll have to wait one more day!
A quick note about Monday Brain Exchange- I am putting it on hiatus for the rest of summer. Summer is just way to jam packed with activities; a few participants emailed me that they would be breaking from it over summer and it got me thinking that it was a good idea to put it on hold. While the MBE did not have the participation level that I had hoped, I have had a lot of fun with it and from it I have found many great blogs. I sincerely thank those that played along and that linked it weekly on your blogs. I hope you will look forward to picking it back up in September.
