Friday night, the teenie and I jumped in the car so we could travel to my parents' house for the Youngling Lager Jogger. This is my second year doing this race, and Pottsville's second year hosting it! We stopped at Red Robin for dinner, but I didn't want anything too greasy. I stuck with this BLTA sandwich (Bacon, lettuce, turkey and avocado) and their "endless" fries. I will assume they were endless, as I barely finished half of what they gave me!
I stopped at the Ramada in Pottsville to get my bib, tee, and beer glass. They had an exceptional system and I was in and out in minutes! Good thing, because it was pouring! Ugh! Better at packet pick up than on race day! We had about 30 minutes to go before we got to my parents' house, on windy dark mountain roads. It.was.foggy. Like, go 5 miles per hour because you can't see, foggy.

We had lunch with my mom at Perkins, dropped her back home and headed to Philly for leg two of our journey. The teenie wants to go to U Arts and they were doing a production of Carrie the Musical. Tickets were only $19 for the two of us, so why not drive 2 hours out of our way, pay $20 to park, $50 for dinner, and see a show?

This is my free finisher photo. Just before the finish line, some dude came from out of nowhere and leaped in front of me. SO no finisher photo for me. His, though? Perfect photo, perfect smile, and my skirt peeking out from behind him. Jerk.
On the plus side, the weather was PERFECT, the day was perfect, and we enjoyed a great stroll around Philly. So, I win anyway!
What are your plans for this weekend?
