What a Weekend! Nashville Girls Weekend Rocked!
Well, the Nashville girls weekend has now come and gone. Just. Like. That.
We had such a great time. It's fun to just get away from everything and let loose a little bit.
Just Beers, Bands and BBQ with a half marathon thrown in.
No cooking, no cleaning, no dishes, no laundry. For 4 days.
I can not recommend enough the Country Music Marathon and Half Marathon series if you're looking for a fun half marathon to do. Everyone was so friendly and supportive. It's a little more expensive than some Half Marathons I've seen, but you really get a lot for you money. There were bands at every mile. The families in town sit out in front of their houses and have parties to cheer everyone on. One group of college kids was even giving out shots of beer. And yes, we stopped for one.
I knew I wasn't going to PR in this race. I really wanted to have a nice, do-able pace so that we could still go out and have fun on our last night in Nashville. We were in no rush. I had to stop at port-o-pottys 3 times and was not going quickly. And there were lots of cute kids standing on the sides of the roads giving high fives, so we high fived every kid we saw. We even stopped to get our "selfie" taken for some selfie company. SOOOOOO. . . . . .. . . we were really in it for the fun this time and not to beat our own best personal times.
Just so you know...
I won't be doing my Meal Plan Monday post today. A friend called and asked if I'd like to go downtown to meet friends for lunch. I'll be taking care of all my meal planning and grocery shopping tomorrow. Hopefully I can still stick to my planned weekly budget of $75 per week.
Right now though, I have to go start getting this house cleaned up a little bit and start laundry.
Hope everyone else had a great weekend!
