We're Gonna Win Twins...

And talk about a blowout. 14-2, Go Twins!! We actually saw a good game. About everyone got a hit!!
What a long day though. I was up at 5:30 on Saturday, out the door to meet the group for our 16 miler (averaging 8:42 thank you very much!). Lakes were packed because Twin Cities Marathon sponsored a water stop. We ran an area that I had only run one other time and then did some repeat of areas I run often. After the run it was a quick stop at Caribou for coffee then to a friends to quick change and head to the first bridal shop. Dressed her in numerous dresses, ruled out till we were down to 2 that we thought were good options. Then we went to lunch in St. Paul (and might I say that place is DEAD on weekends...took us a bit of walking to find a place for lunch but had a great brunch at a little French place, mimosas and bellinis included!) and then to the second shop. At lunch my friend officially asked me and her sister to be her matron and maid of honor (no bridesmaids or groomsmen, we are ALL the top spot!!) and her sister in law will be her third. I was there for part of the second shop, but had to head to the Twins. My friend finished and met us there and we had a fun evening of baseball and beer. She had one more dress she really liked at the second shop so now it's basically down to two. We also had seen a bridesmaid dress that she really liked at the first shop that probably would be fine with either and both I and her sister liked that one and price was reasonable...so hopefully that will be it!!
Today was day off from running. I actually managed to get some packing done too. I think I've about got everything I really need in my bag. Anything else I figure I can buy out there (probably including a cheap pillow to sleep on). As long as I have my three changes of running clothes (3 relay legs and no way I want to sit in wet clothes up to my next run) and something to wear after...I should be good. Debating on the shoes I'll wear though. I'd like the good ones, but they aren't easy to slip on, so maybe I will bring a pair of flip flops...they are small enough to squeeze in my suitcase...
Could be a busy week. Was trying to squeeze in a trip to see Batman, but think that will wait till I get back. My friend is going to maybe take me to see the other dress tomorrow, then Tuesday running group and Wednesday off to Portland...so looking forward to the relay and meeting Annette in person. Another running blog friend encounter!! With her and 11 others...nothing like a relay to get to know people too!!

Up at 5:30? Averaging 8"42/mi on a 16 miler? That's fantastic!
