I had some format issues on the blog this week, where all of a sudden things that should have been centered were showing up on the left. AGH. I got some help from another friendly blogger in my Bloggers Gonna Blog FB group, but in the meantime, I'm trying out some new Friday Five formatting (umm, chances are you wouldn't have even noticed this, so IDK why I'm pointing it out). But, in a newb move I have a few things I need to update in my coding, so hello Internet research.
Anyways. Happy Friday. WE MADE IT! I've got wedding 1 of 6 for 2016 this weekend, and it's the only one in which I'm a bridesmaid! So, my weekend is jam packed, but bring it on! I'm hoping a low key week next week will balance out my weekend, so I'll have plenty of things to recap on Monday, but in the meantime...drumroll please, my Friday Five.
one // Last Saturday was a day trip to Presque Isle State Park on the shores of Lake Erie. I biked 40.5 miles, while my friend Stef roller-bladed & then lounged around snacking on the beach.
two // We found a new winery // cidery (Knockin' Noggin) on the way home & stopped for a fun tasting & a glass of cranberry lemonade cider. We spent an hour or so listening to live music on their outdoor patio before hitting the road again to make it home around 10PM. BTW, this place was so fun & there are two other wineries nearby, that were already closed for the evening.
three // Eek, I just signed up for TWO more races.
1 is a trail 5K (or 10K - I get to choose the day of, but let's be real) on Sunday. Yeah, as in like 2 days from now. It's put on by REI (AKA good swag) & I figured it would be a good practice run for my other race, the Two Face 10K.
If you remember, a week or three ago, I asked for advice on which race to run. Well, honestly, I really wanted to pick the triathlon. But, didn't want to commit myself to the intensity of training it would take to race well. Not that I think I can fake my way through 2 back to back 10K's, but, I have low expectations as far as my trail running skills go. So, y'all might get yourselves a race recap for my trail 5K come Monday!
four // Work blew up yesterday, like this one issue bubbled over into more & then my whole day was consumed with figuring out contingency plans until our IT department can drive out to solve this issue. NOT a quick fix like we initially hoped. Needless to say, I was excited I already had plans to grab drinks with friends after work. Margaritas help everything.
five // Scenes from my trail run after work Monday. I managed to get lost...again, but still had a good time, and I think I finally figured out where to turn for the trails I'm trying to find. Seriously, there was a sign for every trail except the one I wanted!
Happy Friday Friends, if you missed it, I hit publish on a hard post yesterday, some thoughts about the chaos & shootings as of late. You can find it here. Otherwise, I'll see you back here Monday. :)
What are your weekend plans?
Been on any adventures lately?
Tell me something good - it has been a rough week.
