Weekend Update: A Relaxing But Active Week in the CLE

While my parents and brother are out gallivanting in Paris on vacation (it’s okay, you can feel sorry that they left me behind), I’ve been spending my days working and running. Yup, it was a pretty average week with a few late nights and a few short runs (I’m still only on like week three of my half marathon training schedule). But when Friday night came, I was super pooped and looking forward to a relaxing weekend. Which we had. Here’s just some of the awesomeness that went down this weekend.

B and I hung out at on the Mall in Cleveland. I still can’t believe when people say they don’t like downtown because there are no green areas. What’s this?

More view of the Mall. What a gorgeous day, huh?

B and I went for a run. Well, first I went for a run with Kelsey and Cari – we did a slow 6 miler (it was Cari’s first 6 miler!! woowoo!!). But my Nike+ stopped working – so nobody will ever know 😦

But then that afternoon B went for a 5k, so I decided to join him. Check out our split times – I can’t believe it, those are my fastest times ever!run

We played catch. Yup, I put on a softball glove and tried to catch some softballs. “Tried” is the key word. playing catch

Then we put down the softballs for some golf balls and hit the driving range. I’m not much better at golf. I think I’ll stick to running!20130803_170944

What’s that? Doesn’t sound relaxing to you? Oh okay, there was also some movie watching, including this:

How about you? What did you do this weekend? Did you get in any long runs? Any chick flicks? Enjoy the wonderful weather outside?

Hope you had a just as enjoyable weekend!
