Last night, Andrea and I attended the 2nd annual Dollars for Distance, a silent auction benefiting Girls on the Run Twin Cities. It was a fantastic turnout and a well-organized event!
And, bonus — I got to catch up with my former board-mates that I miss dearly.
They had some great items to bid on — a Grandma’s half marathon bib, beginner cross fit package, signed sports memorabilia, running shoes/gait analysis, wine baskets, golf outings — and lots more. I bid on quite a few things but didn’t win anything. I also came close to winning a couple of the raffles — but no such luck. Andrea, on the other hand, was a big winner!
Earlier this week, our fearless Ragnar Ambassador leader Leslie was in town and took all of us out to dinner! It was a gorgeous evening out and we snagged a table on the patio at Crave. Nice.
It’s was fun to talk about nothing but running/Ragnar/other related topics for the couple of hours we were there.
The hubby took today off of work to spend the day with me and it’s been fantastic and really relaxing. We had a yummy lunch at the new-ish sushi place, Sakana, that’s near us (the building it’s in used to be a KFC — so weird). We are heading to a whiskey tasting that his sister and family got him for a Christmas gift. Should be fun! I will do my best to limit my whiskey tasting since I’m racing in the morning.
Speaking of racing — have decided to sign up for the Twin Cities Marathon! Haven’t registered yet — still figuring out some logistics around running as a SoleMate, but hope to have an official confirmation soon!
Have you been to a whiskey tasting? Or something similar — other than a wine or beer tasting?
