Phew, we’re back from a pretty busy/nonstop weekend. The past few days have included some good meals, some art, a comedy show, and two races (including one PR!). Here are some picture to give you an idea:
Our weekend “started” on Thursday with a night at the Cleveland Art Museum with B’s work. We were treated to a peek at their Van Gogh exhibit, appetizers, and drinks in the gorgeous Atrium.
Friday night included another Flaming Ice Cube meal AND another comedy show, this time we saw a “Mom-ic” (mom-comic) who was a lot funnier than I expected.
Saturday morning was an early one – we started with the Cleveland 10 Miler!
Oh yeah, and B and I PRed in our Cleveland 10 miler time. It wasn’t our best pace ever (it wasn’t our half-marathon pace) but apparently the past few times we’ve done the 10 miler we were a lot slower. Check out the difference:
This year my finish time: 1:31:43. Yes, that’s more than a 10 minute PR.
That was just race #1 of the weekend. Saturday evening we headed down to Columbus and Sunday morning included Race #2: a 5k in Columbus to participate in a race B’s aunt was organizing that supported the local autism society.
That’s about it! How was your weekend? Some questions for you:
- Have you run 2 races in one weekend? First time ever! And it wasn’t sooooo bad (though I may be in pain today …)
- Favorite brunch food? I prefer eggs (over easy or sunny side up) to sweet breakfast items like pancakes or french toast.
- Favorite post-run food? I typically crave salads with tons of toppings and of course a hunk of bread. But eggs are nice too 🙂
- Last art exhibit you went to?
- May is THIS WEEK! What’s something fun you’re doing? Running the Cleveland half marathon; seeing my brother graduate; seeing my family in NY AND in Cleveland … so much fun stuff going on!

boooo i’m coming to cleveland this week and it’s RAINING all week! NOOOO!! 😦
Congrats on taking 1st in that 5k and SUPER congrats on that 10 minute PR!! AWESOME job! And double races are the best – especially when they’re for a great cause. Cute pictures!
OH NO! Did you bring this rain? It was so nice last week! If you are looking for things to do, recommendations, running route (buddy) – let me know! melissa k carney at gmail dot com. Would love to meet up if you have time when I get back into town!
Ok I’d love to go for a run Sat or Sun morning! I think that’s the only free time I have (work trip!!). I’ll send you an email! 🙂 Hopefully I’m close by. 🙂
Ooh… that VanGogh exhibit looks awesome! I’ll have to check that out!I’m not much of a runner, but am looking forward to stepping it up in the gym this May. 🙂
It really was cool – it showed variations on his works and explained how you could tell which were his original works, later works he did of the same composition and so on. Good luck at the gym next month – it’s hard to be inside when the weather is so nice outside!
