Another weekend has come and gone – and it was another fabulous fall one in the Midwest. Cooler weather, fall temps, gorgeous colors and of course some baking and running – what more could I ask for?
Here are some highlights from the weekend:
Running the Midtown 10K Race with B, Mary and Dave – it was my first official 10K race! Pretty eventful – B beat both Mary and me, and I ran my best 10K time (52:01 – don’t get too excited). Oh and during the race B lost his wedding ring at around mile 4 … and found it after finishing. What a morning!
Feasting on Coq Au Vin (B cooked for me Sat. night)
Baking up a storm – posts to come, but I baked some apple bars, candy corn bars and candy corn rice krispie treats!
Checking out Hingetown and their Sunday morning market
Going on a peaceful Sunday morning run by myself to clear my thoughts. No running buddy, no race, no music. Just me and the road = amazing.
Enjoying the season’s finest – clam bake! For those of you that aren’t from Cleveland, a clam bake is an October/fall dinner tradition here. You eat a tons of clams, corn, chicken, potatoes, etc. For my east coast friends, it’s like a crab bake or lobster bake .. just with clams!
How was your weekend?
Some questions for you:
Did you run this weekend? Any races? I did my first 10K but I loved following along everyone who ran Columbus or participated in the Runners World races this weekend!
Did you do something new? I ran my first 10K and checked out the Hingetown Market.
Did the fall like temps inspire you to bake? Three bars in one day. Apple, candy corn and rice krispie! My sister in law also baked up a storm in her finnish kitchen. Must have been the time of year!
