Weekend Recap and Summer Bucket List Update

It was a busy and fun weekend! I got home from work on Friday and went for a quick run (3.28 miles at 10:04 avg pace). Then I came back and got ready for a night out on the town. I met up with some friends at Masu for sushi.

This was actually the first time I’ve had a meal of just sushi. It was delicious! I’m definitely on the sushi bandwagon and can’t wait to try more.

After we filled up on sushi, we headed over to Honey to dance the night away. It was a party that was part of Pride Weekend in the Twin Cities. The DJs played some great dance music and kept us on the dance floor all night. Great way to work off the sushi. My feet hurt and I pretty much lost my voice, so you know it was a good night!

I slept in a little on Saturday morning and went for a short walk. I headed out to run some errands and saw some lovely dark clouds rolling in (please note my sarcasm). Normally I love a thunderstorm, but on Saturday night I wanted nothing to do with rain because I had plans to meet up with friends for the TC Jazz Festival. It was one of the things on my summer bucket list and I was really excited about it.

Unfortunately the rain and wind and lightning did roll in and cancelled the outdoor shows that night. 😦 There were a couple of venues that had indoor stages and we made our way to one of them, but by that time we wanted food and there was nowhere to sit. So, we listened to about 5 minutes of jazz and headed out to another nearby restaurant for some food.

Technically, I did make it to jazz fest, so I’m checking that off my summer bucket list, but I’ll be putting back on my list for next year so I can hopefully get the full experience!

On Sunday morning I went for a 5.79 mile run (10:23 avg pace). The sun was out, and I was concerned it would be too hot, but a breeze actually made it pretty comfortable to run for an hour. In the afternoon I ran a couple errands and couldn’t resist getting a mini s’mores blizzard for a sweet treat.

For my summer bucket list, I’ve crossed off the TC Jazz Festival and I’ve made it to the St. Paul Farmer’s Market.

Still gotta make it over to the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market. I can’t believe July is here! I gotta get going on the rest of my list!

How was your weekend? Did any of your plans get rained out?
