The Fun Stuff

First of all, I wanted to thank all of you. The ones who commented on yesterday’s post, the ones who tweeted, facebooked, emailed, and carrier pigeoned words of good luck and congratulations. I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart and they really lifted my spirits before and after the marathon. You all are amazing.

I have a bunch of running thoughts that I’ll put into writing soon but first I want to talk about the fun stuff in Savannah that didn’t almost kill me (a.k.a not the marathon).

Michelle and I went to two blogger meet-ups and dragged Dan along with us. The first one was Friday night at Chart House.

Chart House is a chain restaurant but this one had a lot of charm to it.

Originally, this girl was supposed to meet us for dinner, but she got tired of stalking us all day once we figured her out at Mellow Mushroom. We still had a great time anyway and met some really fun ladies.

I ordered the Cobb Salad as to not upset the bowel gods the next day. It was good, but not worth $15. Or maybe not pooping your pants during a race is priceless. So I guess if you look at it that way, it was worth $15.

Saturday night after the marathon, we met up with some blogger friends at Moon River, which is haunted and was featured on Ghost Hunters. (I only know that because my best friend is a nerd.)

All the girls from left to right: Me, Tina, Julie, Michelle, Allison, Meghann, and Katy. And somehow we have one girl missing from the picture.

(picture stolen like it’s hot from Julie)

Julie and Ryan ran the half marathon in under 2 hours.

Meghann pushed Ben to a 15 minute marathon PR and Katy rocked the half.

Tina rocked the half marathon as well with a 1:50 finish.

I had to keep them open to look at the beauty that was my big fat burger with onion rings the size of my face.

After dinner, we went to a really cute ice cream parlor called Leopold’s.

We all hung around and chatted some more. Then Dan and I shared a moment.

Fun fact: Michelle’s husband and my husband went to high school together but never knew each other.

We all had a lot of fun but I was seriously tired at the end of the night. We got back to the hotel around 10:30 and I was in bed by 11:00. < — one woman party

Ok, so I need a vote from you all. Dan and I seem to be the master of awkward photos. Vote for the most awkward!

  1. Thank you for ordering a salad the night before a race. People think I’m nuts, but pasta makes my bowels angry. True story. Love the pic of you & Michelle at dinner. LOVE. Maybe my favorite picture of you two. Frameworthy. Maybe I’ll even frame it because that’s not weird at all. And I think I’ll choose #2 just because the look on your face is priceless.

  2. No competition — #1 is not only more awkward it’s downright creepy. I’m so terrified to imagine what you’re about to do to him with that giant cucumber (that’s what it is, right?!?).

    And I’m glad to see someone got a pic with your eyes open. I was starting to worry you had suddenly developed narcolepsy during the race.

    • Does it help to know that I was trying to get him to sing an 80s song into the cucumber like it was a microphone? No? Ok then. Carry on. 🙂

  3. Great pics! I do have to vote for #1 also…hehe. #2 is a great photo…and no where near as awkward or creepy as the first. 😉

  4. Come on, not even close: #1. I imagine that scene has played out before in prison multiple times.

  5. #1. I got the chills just looking at it.

  6. SkinnyRunner

    im scared to see photo #3 bc you guys are going to be making a baby in it.
    im such a loser and missed out on so much fun stuff.

  7. I vote #1 – not because its awkward but because I vowed to myself years ago I would support anything in a mullet.

  8. Yeah I think I’m going to have to go with the cucumber. Although, awkward photos are fun!

    Is that cucumber peeled? That makes it even more creepy. #1

    BTW, those are the biggest onion rings I have ever seen.

    #1 for sure!!!! 🙂

  11. CONGRATS ON YOUR MARATHON!! I just read the recap…you are incredible. Those onion rings made me drool:) Such a fun get-together!

  12. Jessica @ Sushi and Sit-Ups

    1 is more awkward in an intentional way…so gotta go with 2. Glad you made it through your race without pooping!

  13. #1 for your facial expression, but dang do I love #2 as well!

    • Finally someone loves #2! That was our favorite too. But maybe because it’s so new and we’ve been looking at the other one for years.

  14. I’m gonna say #1.
    And yep, not pooping your pants in a marathon definitely = priceless!

    I vote for pic #1… I was there when that was taken. Such a fun party! I think I won 2nd place for best costume and received a rad prize of a Totally 80s music CD. I wonder where I stashed that CD… need to look for it one of these days. 🙂
