After work on Friday I headed over to Nisei Lounge on Sheffield for our Team LUNGevity Fundraiser. From 6-9pm all tips made by our fabulous charity bartenders, Deanne and Rejane, were donated back to LUNGevity! Co-workers, friends and family joined in and drank, played giant Jenga and most importantly tipped for this great cause! At the end of the night we totaled the tips and made $374 — not bad for a night of drinking and hanging out!
Saturday morning I went to hot yoga sculpt to get the most out of the last few days of my membership and then headed out for a quick run (yay for Fun Run May) before brunch with my friends! The run was a 4 mile to the lake front and back and the weather was fantastic (read: shorts and a tank)! Afterwards I showered quickly and headed over to Mercadito for brunch with Jenny and Leanne (who I haven’t seen since she moved to LA in January)! We sat outside, drank mimosas and caught up! When we finished up with brunch I went over to Kristin’s, who recently bought a condo, to get a tour, chat and help unpack. And to make her fabulous life change even better. . .she’s only a mile away from me now so I had a nice walk home after in the sun!
Sunday I had plans to go home and spend the day with my family so I went out for a quick run in the morning. I ran over Roosevelt Bridge, down the lakefront path, circled around and then headed back south on Michigan (stopping to do some stairs on my way)! Then we went home to celebrate Mother’s Day and BBQ with the world’s greatest grandma! From the photo below you can tell she clearly loves me more than my sister. .
Overall it was a great weekend! I got to see friends, family and get in a few fun runs in the nice weather!
