a week of silence

Sorry for taking a full week between posts. I’ve been busy with my marathon training and trying to do things other than sit in front of my computer. Last Monday Kristy & I went downtown with our friends and checked out the fireworks down by the Flats. It was really good, and also pretty funny because from where we were at we could also see the fireworks from the baseball game at Jacobs Field which started only a couple minutes after the other ones did.
I ran a total of 19 miles this past week, culminating in an 8 mile run yesterday. So I am now 25% done with my training program with 4 weeks down and 12 to go. I’m enjoying the fact that it gets me more active and outdoors which is something I’ve lacked for most of the last year.
Friday night we hit up Steak n’ Shake and it was good times. Their new “sippable sundaes” are quite amazing, and I really enjoyed the Double Chocolate Peanut Butter one on this trip. Last night we went to see the world-acclaimed Cleveland Orchestra for the first time at Blossom Music Center. It was a perfect night for it and we had a lot of fun. I was expecting a small crowd, but it was almost totally packed! It was crazy to see some of the things people brought. I think there were at least two bottles of wine per person in attendance, and just about every type of food was represented by someone there. I was jealous because all we had was a blanket. Before the show, we hit up this party put together by Cool Cleveland which was a lot of fun. I’m not really clear on what they do and why, but I think their goal is to try to get people having fun in Cleveland and help it grow into the thriving city it once was.
