From Mud Run to Gala

Happy Monday!

Here's a quick recap of our weekend activities. Friday evening included a trip to the gym and a quick dinner at Paese-Mio, our favorite local pizza shop. The rest of the evening was low-key on the couch, since we knew that we had a busy weekend ahead of us.

Saturday morning was Race Day! Brad and I decided to run a race organized by Faith Church to support their mission teams, and also to honor a member of the church who passed away earlier this year. It was a great race with over 100 participants. The course was very hilly (and wet and muddy from all the rain we've had). We had a good time (OK, I enjoyed being done with the race more than I actually enjoyed running, but you know what I mean).

 This was my favorite part of the morning: a trip to the Emmaus Bakery after the race. This doughnut was almost as big as my head!

Oh, and I did come in second place in my age group (Brad was shocked!)

After an afternoon of errands (including a trip to the farmer's market), we got ready for our second big event of the day: The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival Gala. 

On our way!

 At the event: 

We had a really great time, and ended up meeting some really amazing people. The highlight of the night was a performance by Dee Roscioli, a Lehigh Valley native who played the role of Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway. Very cool!

Sunday was spent at church, Fuse, and a ladies tea party with some women from the church. Brad was able to spend some time with the Grizz while I was with the ladies, and we rounded out the weekend with dinner and a game of Jeopardy. 

What did you do this weekend?
