Eye of the Tiger

Well happy Monday!

I haven’t done a weekend review in a while. Right now I am sitting in front of my laptop with a patch over my left eye, but we will get to that…

On Friday I went down to Philly to see a play with Matt. We saw And Then There Were None. It’s a murder mystery based on a book by Agatha Christie. The play was really good. It reminded me a little bit of the movie Clue (which we watched Saturday). I will do a longer review on it soon.

Saturday we just hung out most of the day and then Kier, Karen and I got dinner at Blue Duck Sandwich Company. I fell like I eat there every time I go to Philly now. The wings are just too delicious!

On Sunday I woke up early with a lot of energy. Since it was sunny out and I was in Philly, I decided to run my favorite trail along the Schuylkill River. I drove downtown and was surprised that the front of the Art Museum was closed off. I got into the parking lot we usually park in, but it was packed. I figured I would drive down a little to another lot, but the road was closed!

I eventually found a spot on a side street and later learned there was a half marathon going on as well as a rowing competition on the river.

Luckily the Love Half Marathon was on the opposite side of the river.

It was cold out, but it warmed up as I ran. It was still a gorgeous day with the sun shining.

I was going to do 5 miles, but around 2.25 was when I hit the rowing competition and the sidewalk was closed because of the boats and spectators so I just turned around. I wound up doing 4.5 miles with an average pace of 9:14!

After my run I headed home. The drive home was nice. It felt like spring because it was so sunny out! I also have recently been obsessed with Any Grammer’s new song Honey, I’m Good. I listened to it a few times. It is a great running and driving song.

When I got home I headed over my cousin’s house to help her with some spring cleaning. A lot of it was in her attic. I am very persuasive and I got her to get rid of a lot of junk…now if only I could do that to myself.

The attic looks amazing now, but I guess I got dirt or dust in my eye at some point because last night I felt like I had something in my eye and today it’s very painful. I scratched my cornea a few months ago so I had some drops still. When I put those in it feels better, but I am off to the doctor later to make sure. I do not mess around when it comes to my vision.

I hope everyone has a great Monday!
