Life as of Late

Happy Monday!

On Wednesday, Fred and I went to see Mat Kearney and Train in concert. They were playing at this great little outdoor venue by the river and it was just perfect. Let me tell you, Train puts on an AWESOME show.  I've seen them three times in the past three years and it's always high energy!  Mat Kearney was great as well, but I am convinced he was wearing the exact mustard colored pants I bought at Ann Taylor last week!
On Friday night, I decided to run in the Cooper Young 4-miler. It's a fun run through a very eclectic neighborhood.  I saw just about everyone I knew.  
I was placed in Wave 1 which is the "fast runners" wave.  I was a little scared because these are the runners who run faster than an 8:59 mile.  I decided that I had to earn my spot and I did.

I finished the 4-miler in 33:45.  This was a new personal best for me.  

After the race, Fred and I met up with some friends and went to grab a bite to eat.  After dinner, I made friends with these two.  Um, yeah.  I don't know.  
On Saturday, Fred and I headed back down to Cooper Young for the festival with our friend, Josh. This was our first time going and it was a lot of fun.
 I even scored this super cute and fun wreath at the festival.
On Sunday, I attended mock recruitment for my sorority.  The did great, but they made me feel OLD when they said they had dance parties with old 90's music like NSYNC and Backstreet Boys.  Reality check for sure!

Overall it was a great weekend!  How was your weekend?

I advise for ADPi at GW, where I went to school. (I found your blog a while back through a good friend who was in ADPi with me.) I totally know what you mean about loving see the chapter do so well, but totally feeling old! I'm 27, but I definitely feel like a "real adult" around them.

I saw Mat Kearney in concert and fell in love with him. He does wear tight pants, but I still think he puts on a great show. :) And yay for another race. You seriously are inspiring.
