Weekend Rewind

Oh how I wish I could re-wind this weekend. It was the perfect mix of on the go and rest. I'm a busy bee at heart which is the opposite of Joe so we balance each other out quite well. We started the weekend early Friday with a late lunch and drinks at a local restaurant in Morrisville- Page Road Grill. It was nice to enjoy refreshing cocktails on the patio out of the heat of the day. 
Saturday morning began with my first run with the training group at Try Sports. I will be running with them while I train for a half marathon this fall. I'm excited to push my pace and get faster this race season. I'll be sharing more on my training this week. After my run, Joe and I headed out to Umstead State Park. We completed a short 2.5 mile loop through the park. The trail was shaded and surprisingly cooler for the middle of the day. 

We wrapped the day up with dinner at Relish in Raleigh. This was our second time trying Relish out and it did not disappoint. They feature southern inspired entrees and sandwiches. I enjoyed the vegetable plate which had fried green tomatoes, broccoli salad, fresh corn and a side salad. Joe had the chili cheeseburger with house fries. Somehow we saved room for dessert  including chocolate chess pie and banana pudding which was just like homemade. 

Sunday I took Charlie on an early morning walk around our neighborhood. Then we spent the day catching up on work and watching the race (Of course!). 

That afternoon we headed out to a Durham Bulls game. I enjoy watching sports a lot more in person. 

I'm sad to see the weekend go especially since I start back to work tomorrow. It makes it better knowing we have great things planned for this week. I'm excited to start another year with the Junior League of Raleigh. We are also going to enjoying Restaurant Week downtown Friday night.
