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.

And despite what you see in this post by Tina or this post by Meghann, I did in fact have my eyes open at dinner. See? Open!

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!
