1. RUNNING: I joined a new running group this week! Each week they run from a different Great Dane Brew Pub location in the Madison area and have either a 3 or 6 mile route planned. I had been invited to try it out this summer by a friend, but had never made the effort to join. Finally, on Tuesday I was able to make it. I got a bit nervous because I wouldn't know anyone there, but they were so welcoming and I was invited to stick with two similar paced runners for the 6 mile route. I had only planned on doing the 3 as I already ran during lunch that day, but since I never turn down running company, I joined them. We chatted it up the whole time and the 6 miles flew by! I'll definitely be back next Tuesday!
Oh, and I've run everyday so far this week and have plans to run with a friend tonight. Hello, motivation! Where have you been?
2. FAMILY+BEER=FUN: We visited my sister and her boyfriend this past weekend and had a great time! The highlight of the weekend was going to a Wood Barrel Aged Beer Fest that we have attended the past three years. It was HUGE this year and even though the weather was cold and rainy, we had so much fun. And so much delicious beer.
They had a photo booth!
Between the 4 of us we were able to taste pretty much every beer they offered. Afterwards we went into the brewery and enjoyed a delicious dinner. They really have it going on at Brewery Vivant.
3. AH-NOLD: You want to know what 4 adults full of beer and good food decide to do for fun on a Saturday night? Watch this:
It was awesome. They followed Arnold, Louie Ferringo (who later became The Hulk) and other bodybuilders as they prepped and competed. I never knew Arnold was such a dick. I mean, I didn't really think he was a great dude or anything, but they way he intimidates his competition is entertaining. He has so many good quotes in this film:
Hah. It's definitely worth a watch for some good laughs and insight into the bodybuilding world of the 1970's.
Have you seen any good documentaries lately?
