Jam Packed Weekend

This weekend was full of all kinds of events. Really, the only thing we had planned was the Kenny Cheseny concert on Friday night. Everything else just happened, which was kind of fun!

Friday, I was able to get off work early (thank you flex time!). So I met Andy and my nephew up at the rec center. Instead of driving up there, I decided to squeeze in a run. I was able to do 3.5  hot, sunny, miles. We stayed up there for about an hour. I enjoyed the AC and the boys played some basketball.

After that we headed down to go see Kenny Cheseny. I was looking forward to the concert, but not the venue. Last year we were spoiled with seeing Kenny perform at Paul Brown Stadium (where the Bengals play), and this year he went back to Riverbend. Riverbend has a lawn and a pavilion. We bought lawn tickets, which were cheaper, but I won’t buy those again. It was hard to see Kenny and that’s where all the intoxicated people hung out. We still had a great time though!

Saturday, after sleeping in a little bit, we went to go watch my nephew’s baseball game. He was playing at a park that was about 5 miles away so I decided to ride my bike there. Andy drove so he could pick up lunch, which ended up being a good things because after the first inning a huge thunderstorm came rolling in. I was able to load my bike up in his car and didn’t get stuck riding home in the rain. The rest of the day was spent hanging around the house relaxing like our cats did. We did venture out to dinner at Friday’s and then went to play cards with friends.

I woke up early on Sunday ready to run. I wanted to get either 6 or 7 miles in before I had to meet my friend/co-coach to go over some dance team business. I finished 6 miles with about 5 minutes to spare before I had to meet her. We met up at Starbucks and got things done! I am looking forward to starting off another dance season  in just two short weeks!

Andy and I have this new “tradition” of eating Bruegger’s Bagels for lunch on Sundays. He loves their turkey sandwich, while I love their Blue Apple salad. We went down to go pick it up and found the streets were blocked. It turns out a bike race was going on that we didn’t know about it. We parked a few blocks over and decided to check it out. There were a couple food trucks there which I’ve wanted to try. I had a grilled cheese from one place and a homemade ice cream from another. Both were really good!

We watched the bike race for about a half hour. I was impressed! I had never seen a bike race before so I had no idea how fast they went! It made me think of all my blogger friends that are getting into tri’s now!

The weekend ended with this beautiful sunset. The picture doesn’t look as good as it did in person! Busy weekends always go by way too fast!

Did you do anything fun? Ever tried anything from a food truck?
