I had a wonderful weekend. I went to Central Park bright and early Saturday morning for a Team in Training group run. I had a 9 miler scheduled, but the groups were running 10-12 miles so I opted just to go ahead and do a 10 mile run instead. It was a beautiful day out and it ended up being a really great run. It was probably 38 or 39 degrees and sunny.
- Distance: 10 Miles
- Duration: 97:14
- Pace: 9:43
- Calories Burned: 1,029
I was STARVING by the time I got home and I could not wait to eat my breakfast cookie that I had prepared the night before. I didn’t eat enough before my run either and was pretty hungry during my whole run, which sucked A LOT! But, I’ve definitely learned my lesson and I need to make sure I eat before my long runs.
My sister and Scott arrived on Saturday afternoon. We left shortly after for the King of Falafel and enjoyed some of the best falafel around. We hit up a great bar just a few blocks over called Sunswick, which is at the corner of 35th ave and 35th street. They have a huge selection of draft beer and it’s one of the best bars in Astoria.
Saturday night we had a party, a pizza party to be exact. We had 3 or 4 different homemade pizzas that were all incredibly delicious. There was even a dessert pizza made by Megan.
This was the pizza I made, I was really craving a veggie loaded pizza. I will have to make it again though, I don’t think I really ate enough to appreciate it.
These were Kelly’s mini pizzas.
This was the BEST thing of the night! Seriously this was amazingly delicious. I can not express enough how good this was. It was the best pizza there in my opinion.
We went to this really great bar called the Blind Tiger yesterday. I just got done writing an article / review about it on I Really Like Food, so keep an eye out for it tomorrow.
Today we hit up Pronto Pizza in Times Square, then went for a cupcake at Magnolia and a beer at the Heartland Brewery. Overall it was a great weekend and I’m so glad that Kerri and Scott finally got a chance to come down. They are great company and I really do miss hanging out with them as much as we used to.
I have a goal / career oriented post coming up tomorrow. Things have really changed for me within these past couple months and I have a lot on my mind. I’m ready to display and act upon new directions in my life.
