How is the weekend over?! Is it just me, or did this weekend FLY by? I looked back at my pictures Sunday evening and realized I took approximately 309432048. If you don't like pictures, you may want to skip this post. If you love them, well, you are in for a treat.
Friday night we went to dinner at a new-to-us place a town away. It is called Sports Time, and a friend of ours said it was a great cheap place with great food. Our server was amazing and when we told her it was our first time, she told us all about the place. They make almost everything from scratch, and that is VERY rare around here. I was already impressed, and couldn't wait to try my food. I ordered a philly cheesesteak sandwich with fries and a salad, and Drew got a burger.
Our food came and I couldn't wait to dive in. I was starving, so I went for it. For some reason, it just wasn't that good. I couldn't figure out why, but I took another bite. All of a sudden I saw it. (I literally feel sick to my stomach reliving this) A huge wad of plastic wrap, melted into my sandwich. GAG. I couldn't believe it. I literally stared in disbelief while Drew just stared back at me with a shocked look on his face. I think our server saw my face and came over. She couldn't believe it either. She apologized around 15 times and kept saying this had never happened before. Poor thing, she probably thought I was going to freak out. She told me she would take it off my bill and get me a new sandwich. I can't believe I had the guts to speak up, but I told her I didn't want another sandwich- because I don't think I would have been able to enjoy it. I decided to switch to the fried fish instead. I could kick myself for not taking a picture, but I was too shocked to even think about it.
The fish ended up being a WAY better choice. It was the second best fish i've ever had (only behind my dad's fresh caught fish made with my mom's secret recipe) and I got my appetite back after receiving it. The below picture is form their Facebook.

Sports Time redeemed themselves with the fish. :) The sandwich was a huge bummer, but I'm glad we still gave it another chance. I can't believe I'm saying this, but we will probably go back.
After dinner I was (yet again) dying for chocolate, so we went to get some frozen yogurt. I put all of the the least healthy options on top. But it's yogurt, so it's healthy. Right? ha.
I got home to find my little Jeffrey had gotten into my little first aid kit and was eating a tampon. Nice.
Saturday morning I woke up ran my last long run before this weekend's 10K. I am super excited about it! My old coworker and friend E is letting me stay at her in-laws Friday night so I don't have to drive an hour on race day. I am SUPER grateful for that, but I am even more excited to catch up with her! Oh, and the run will be fun too. :)
It was perfect weather for 6 miles. It was nice a cool, and it even rained a bit right before I got back to my house. I was really struggling to keep pace the first couple of miles. Every time I looked at my Garmin, I was going way too fast. I really had to concentrate on going slower. This hurt me near the end of the run, I had to really push to finish.
During the run I tried a GU for the first time. The flavor wasn't bad, but I wasn't expecting the texture to be like it was. It was super think and coated my mouth. Ick. It seems much easier to consume while running, but I think I probably prefer chews. It's just my first one though, so I will keep giving them a try.
As you can see, my outfit was ridiculous. I wore my most comfy clothes in hopes that it could get me out the door. It worked. I made sure to stay off any main roads for fear of someone seeing me. Ha.
After the run I showered and ran some errands. Later on Saturday we went to Nappanee's Apple Festival.
I had been waiting all day to splurge on a super decadent dessert at the festival, but nothing really sounded good. I finally got a strawberry shortcake, but only ate a fourth of it or so before giving the rest to my mom. It just wasn't that great.
After that it was too cold so we decided to go home. All the booths were closed anyway, but a band that my family loves was playing. They aren't our style, so I don't think we missed too much. :)
After church my husband and I decided to make an incredible burger creation. Yeah, we ate terribly this weekend. Anyway, back to the burger. If you've been to Scotty's Brewhouse, you may have heard of the Shewman special. We created our own, with crispy baked red potatoes on the side. Um.. yum!
This morning I didn't go to the gym, I'm going to take a rest day. Tomorrow I will be back at it! I'm not quite sure what I'm doing yet, as I want to have fresh legs for Saturday's race. I will probably just do a short run on the dreadmill and some arms.
What did you do this weekend?
Did your weekend go too fast too?
Are you running the Fort4Fitness? If so, I would love to meet you!
