Another busy week! I was dog tired by Wednesday and took a rest day. Thursday we met up with work friends and I was able to get 5 miles easy when we got home later that night.

Friday we had a beautiful day and I got in my run outside and followed up with Ab Ripper X. Then I had to go into work for a couple hours. That night we drove to Champaign to see Abby’s sister Amy’s art debut at an art gallery. Amy is an amazing artist! She had two exhibits and I won’t be able to do justice by describing them. Let’s just say the girl is super talented!

Afterward we headed to Cakes on Walnut for specialty cupcakes. Apparently they are changing names and are updating the menu so these are new flavors as of today.

Lemony Blush for me.

Fudge rush for Rob.

The icing was amazing and the cake was flavorful of mint and lemon, but a bit dry. I’m sure as they work through their company changes the taste will be back to top notch.

Later we all went to 7 Saints restaurant. The restaurant is gorgeous and the food is an upscale comfort food type menu.

Today (Saturday) Drew is here and we are ready to race tomorrow. I did 3 Easy on the treadmill to keep the legs fresh. Now it’s time to chillax. 🙂
