This was a busy but marvelous weekend! It started out with a ~13 mile training run with Falls Road Running on Saturday morning. We got done at like 9:15 and got ready to head to NYC on Amtrak.
Our train was supposed to get us to the city by 1:40…well we had some crazy delay issues but we finally made it and got to see two of my good friends celebrate their wedding! I’ve known one of these lovely brides since Kindergarten!
Not only are weddings a wondering time to share in all the excitement and love that the couple is experiencing, but I also enjoy catching up with friends who I don’t get to see very often.
This wedding was filled with amazing people- some who I haven’t seen since high school! It’s always fun to catch up but also makes me feel like “where did the last 13 years go?” I always wonder how people remember me and in what ways I am different than I was then. I mean, I have definitely changed a lot since I have been through college, had (a few) real jobs, and gotten married.
There are a group of us who have been friends since high school and have stayed closed over the years. But when I see people who I only keep in touch with via Facebook- the conversations have turned to who has gotten married, had kids, etc. How did that happen?!
Anyway, the wedding was amazing- I just wish I hand’t been so exhausted from that ridiculously hard run and crazy day of traveling. We ate lunch at like 11 am and then didn’t eat anything until dinner at the wedding and the runger had set in pretty bad. I tried to refrain from eating ALL of the bread basket. After the wedding we grabbed some pizza before calling it a night- I can’t even remember the last time I ate late night pizza but there was no way I could go to sleep without eating something else and the options were limited.
Luckily Sunday’s travel went much more smoothly than Saturdays because I don’t know if I could have handled any more travel issues. The whole train delay was really annoying and inconvenient- and I usually love Amtrak and would rather take the train to NY than drive, fly, or take the bus.
I love when places have the option to make your own salad. It’s the small things that made me happy on Sunday, even though I paid over $10 for this. (NY people I don’t know how you live with these prices!!)
Now its time to get back into the swing of things for the work week and marathon training. I hope you all had marvelous weekends also!
What was something marvelous about your weekend?
How do you feel when you see people you haven’t seen in years?
