this past weekend was packed full of all kinds of activities – from running a 5k to support pancreatic cancer to fairway (my new favorite market) trips with lo. on friday night i got to catch up with my old coworkers starkie and neil, who i always love to see. as per usual we had some beers at played pool at bullshead and talked about starkie’s upcoming trip to spain – of which i am incredibly jealous!
saturday morning i was up bright and early to run a 5k with friends to support pancreatic cancer research. my neighbor is currently battling this disease so this cause is very close to my heart. as i was on the subway on my way up to riverside park my friend patrick got on the same car as me, so we rode up together. crazy how you always run into people in new york! the weather was a little chilly but we all had a great time running the hilly course – patrick of course lapped all of us. afterwards we trekked down to the boat basin for drinks and food and had a great rest of the day. needless to say i needed a nap by about 4:30pm!
sunday lauren and i went up to fairway for some groceries – definitely my favorite grocery store by far! they also have the pickles that i have been searching for for the past two years so i will be making frequent trips to get my pickle fix. after fixing a little mid morning breakfast/lunch – i’ve gotten really into blts for breakfast recently – i headed over to lululemon to pick up some new running gear and then to bed bath and beyond for some new candles and a small grater. i went for an evening run on the river and then cooked up some chicken, broccoli and udon noodle stir fry that turned out even better than i thought (secret ingredient: ginger). all in all it was an incredibly successful weekend that i’m hoping i can duplicate again this weekend!
