no more birthdays

It’s been a while since my last post. In the meantime, I turned 30. It was a pretty good birthday, besides the shock of no longer being in my 20s. Kristy & I hit up Melt in Lakewood for some brews, grilled cheese, and deep fried twinkies. My birthday continued into the past week, as she scored tickets to see David Byrne, former singer of one of my all time favorite bands, Talking Heads. It was an awesome show (see review here) with many classics, a lot of energy, and a good crowd. David Byrne put on such a great performance, and it was a real show with dancers and a large band and such. Best show I’ve been to in a long time. And to round out my birthday, the past Friday we hit up the Fall Beer Fest as the Heinen’s in Brecksville. 36+ craft & import beers, gourmet appetizers, cheese & sushi, and a crowd of beer snobs. It was a great event and I got to try many beers which I had never heard of, and found quite a few excellent brews that I hope to enjoy again sometime in the future. It is a great event for only $25, that I highly recommend to all Cleveland-area beer lovers, as I think they have one every 3 months or so.
Other than that, not too much going on. I was initially excited about this year’s baseball playoffs, but never ended up watching any. I am very much looking forward to the election being over next week, as I am beyond sick of all things political. I’ve been hot and cold with my running lately. One week I’ll be totally inspired and get in a few great runs, and the next week I’ll struggle with getting in just one run for the week. Still trying to break out of this year-long running slump I’m mired in. But hey, I’m married now….I can just let myself go and get fat and out of shape, right?
