It’s Saturday and I’m off to visit Sara, one of my most favorite people in the entire world, in Durham, NC. I haven’t been to Durham in nearly three years (…time flies!), as my last visit was in February 2010! I’m excited to visit Sara (and her husband Scott) as well as Sarah (with an –h), her husband Josh, and get to meet little Annabel!
I’m only packing shorts for running, so fingers crossed the South pulls through with warmer temperatures for me. On the other hand, the first thing I grabbed to pack was my Bears jersey, as Bears/Packers is Sunday and we plan on watching a lot of football. Sara is one of the best football watching friends (move to NYC, please)…
When Sara was in NYC…might be my favorite picture of us.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to some runs with Sara and her grad school friend Marissa…Sara’s a new-ish runner and it’ll be fun to run with her because in college I never imagined this day would come. Also hoping for a stroller run with Sarah…so many options!
Speaking of options, most of our plans for the weekend revolve around culinary explorations…Abbe has talked up the BBQ at The Pit, and I trust her taste buds so this better not disappoint.
I am a bit nervous since last time I was in Durham, my IT band started acting up and that was the great IT band decline of 2010…but clearly it wasn’t Durham’s fault so although I’ worried about my back, it’ll be fine. Maybe Durham has magical healing powers and I’ll never feel a twinge ever again.
Super excited, see you in North Carolina! (…or when I get back. To be determined…)
