Visit to Northville

This weekend we went to Michigan and stayed at Jeff's parents. My mom flew into town for the showers so it was a full house! My soon-to-be sister in law helped me address my wedding invitations-

Bridal Showers

I had such a great time this weekend at my bridal showers. I had one with people from Jeff's home church and another one with my extended family that lives in Michigan and Jeff's extended family that lives in Michigan. Both were a blast and I feel so fortunant to have such great friends and family.

Dinner with Pam and Joe

We went out for Japanese Barbecue. There is a little grill in the middle of the table that you cook your food on. It was so fun! I love Pam and Joe.

Nike Boat Ride .... then Pizza with Jess and Emily

Today I got to go on the Chicago River to watch them dye the river green for Saint Patty's day. Nike paid for it all and there was brunch and an open bar. I had such a fun time. It was really fun to do something not running related with my teammates.

Then that afternoon Jessica Koster came into town and we ran down to the Saint Patty's day parade and then Emily came down from the suburbs and we went out for Chicago Pizza.

It was such a fun day! It's studying all day tomorrow now for me : (

I don't want to have to admit this but it is kind of funny so I feel I should share. Well a couple weeks ago there was a really cold day and I decided to run on the treadmill. I don't run on the treadmill very often and today I was supposed to do mile repeats so I was very focused. There were other treadmills open but this guy with arms the size of my legs decided to go on the treadmill right next to me..urg Oh well. As I started my repeat I completely zoned out and was just focusing on my workout and I forgot that I was inside (don't ask me how I can forget something as obvious as that!) and like I would do outside as I start to breath harder I clear my throat and turn to the side and spit! YES! I spat on the guy next to me! Talk about embarrassing!!! I think I better stick to running outdoors from now on :)
