Yesterday Dan and I went to an absolutely gorgeous wedding.
The ceremony was in a cute little garden with terraces and fountains. After the bride and groom kissed and everyone cheered, it fell silent and a little boy yelled, “Eeeeww! He kissed her on the lips!”
Dan made friends with the harp player.
The reception was just as beautiful with the best wedding food I have ever had. Hands down.
Austin (the groom) was in my fellowship class at UNC. I have become friends with Tammy (the bride) since then. Here is my entire fellowship class. From left to right – Dr. Tran, Noelia, Justin, me, Meredith, and Austin.
Moving away from my home and Dan for an entire year was extremely hard on me. I can say with 100% certainty that I would not have lasted a month if it wasn’t for these fine people. I love and miss them so much! Although they continue to try to get Dan and I to move to North Carolina, we are trying to get them to give Kansas City a try!
After the wedding we hit up my favorite coffee shop, then a bar, and then my camera went dead. Probably from the multiple car pictures.
Yesterday I ran 8 miles on the Ayr Mount trail.
Holy cow, this was hard. For the first 3 miles I was really questioning my ability to run a half marathon in a month. Then, after I passed the 4th and 5th miles things started to seem a little easier. I think I am tired from constantly being on the go while traveling and probably not fueling my body the best I can while going out to eat most nights. I also think that running on gravel is a bit harder than running on pavement.
I didn’t track my points yesterday. I wish I could say that I tried to eat lot so fruits and veggies, but I didn’t plan well and there weren’t many available. I did, however, try to listen to my stomach and only ate when I was hungry. I am excited to get back in the normal swing of things tomorrow!
