Last weekend Paul, Bob and I went to Nashville to visit Drew and Tiffany who got married in November. Their wedding was only kinda fun…
Bob and I left bright and early Friday morning. Paul wasn’t coming until later that night because he couldn’t get the day off work. I am not a fan of country music and I knew I was in for a rude awakening the second I walked in the Nashville airport…cowboy hats and boots, framed guitars and country music EVERYWHERE.
We made a trip to the grocery store and more importantly, the liquor store. Tiffany was an awesome host and already had planned for the meals she was going to make. Crock Pot = best invention ever. We had chili, buffalo chicken, and chicken and dumplings.
I wanted to get one long run in for the weekend because the half marathon is two weeks away so I headed to the gym in their apartment complex and ran 8 miles on the treadmill. I don’t remember the last time I ran on the TM and I was reminded why…so boring.
We picked up Paul from the airport, grabbed some frozen pizzas and headed back to the apartment to play card games. Drew taught us hearts which I still don’t understand…probably because I have the attention span of a five-year-old.
Saturday morning, St. Patrick’s Day, Tiffany and I went to the gym to get our sweat on. Our only goal was to be there for a half hour. The guys tried to convince us to stay for an hour so they could play more Halo. Typical.
Paul made breakfast sandwiches and it was a beautiful day so we headed to the pool!
After getting some much-needed sun, we got ready to go to the bars on Broadway Street.
Bushwackers are basically milkshakes with alcohol in it…AMAZING. Paul has one in his hand here:
After Brewhouse we went to Honky Tonk, The Stage, Tootsie’s and Legends. It was such a great time and it felt like we were out until 5 a.m. but we were home by 11 p.m.! Here are some pictures from the night:
To say I was struggling Sunday morning is an understatement. There was no way I was going for a run. Bob made his specialty banana pancakes and then we went to the pool to
sweat out the alcohol relax. It was a great weekend and it was really hard to leave! Tiffany and Drew – Thank you so much for your awesome hospitality! Such a great weekend filled with friends, food, drinks and great weather!
This past weekend I met up with some great Chicago running bloggers! Next post coming soon!
