Yawn! That's how I feel today, with a 6:00 wake-up call on Saturday and a 5:30 wake-up call on Sunday. I was definitely feeling the early wake-up on Sunday afternoon and still some today.
On Saturday after work, my husband and I decided to finally check out Union Craft Brewing, located in Baltimore. We've been a fan of their beer since they opened a few years ago, especially some of their newer offerings, and decided to go on a tour and visit the taproom.
It was really busy, but we still joined the tour and learned some pretty cool stuff; I thought the canning device and process was pretty neat.
We also tried a few of their beers; I think this is was AM Gold and it was pretty tasty. I also sampled the Old Pro.
We also randomly ran into some friends at the taproom, and spent a while talking to them, which was really nice.
When we got home, we decided to walk to Fells' Point and share some wine and cheese before dinner.
V-No has a great outside seating space (and is also right beside the pirate ship tour, so that is always interesting, especially after the nighttime BYOB tours). We decided to go with a Burgandy after watching A Year in Burgandy/drinking Burgandy wines last weekend.
We went to sleep pretty early on Saturday, because on Sunday we were headed to Hunt Valley for Komen Maryland Race for the Cure!!! My gym, Miss FIT, raised the most money in the Fitness category for last year's race so won the right to warmup the crowd. The warm-up crew did AWESOME and the crowd was loving it. I passed out tee-shirts and water bottles, which they enjoyed too haha.
I actually ran the whole 5K with my husband, which is the furthest I've run since my triathlon in August. I've had a few minor piriformis/lower back/foot issues, since so I haven't been running much. I'm definitely sore today, but fingers crossed the soreness goes away soon. It's also been a while since we've done a race together; I definitely missed it!
After we got home (we had to wait for the roads to open again, so we left a little later than anticipated), we showered up and headed to our friends' surprise baby shower. It was really nice and low-key; my friend did a great job putting it together. And she had the best cupcakes.
After we said our goodbyes, I think the early morning and running really hit us, because we headed to Whole Foods for groceries and then straight home to sit on the couch and watch football. Victor cooked us some delicious spaghetti for dinner and I think I fell asleep before 11! :)
And bonus, there is leftover spaghetti for tonight's dinner. YUM.
It was a pretty marvelous weekend all around. :)
How was your weekend? Do you enjoy running races with your significant other?
