How to Spend a Summer Saturday

Shelby Bottoms Park
Aaaahhhh, summer!  It's summertime!

I woke up bright and early yesterday to run the Gay 5K in Nashville's Shelby Bottoms Park.  The 5K supports OutCentral, fights bullying, and celebrates diversity.  It was a small race, but I'm happy to report I improved my time by a minute from my last 5K.  Woohoo!  I loved that the park had some nice shade to run in for much of the course, which definitely helped in the Tennessee sun/heat.

After the race, I went home to shower, and took a little time to relax.  My roommate from college, HH, made plans to meet me in Nashville, but in the end picked me up so we could spent the afternoon (and evening, because we talked to much!) at the Opry Mills mall.  We had a late lunch/early dinner at Aquarium, which was awesome for HH's little guy LH (he just turned 2!).  He loved seeing all the fish; it was like eating in an aquarium, though he liked his French fries better than his fish sticks.

We completely lost track of time, since we've been apart for 5 years...  we lived together for 5 out of 8 semesters in college, and it is crazy that it's been so long since we've seen each other.  She's going to be living nearby for a few more months, so we're definitely making plans to get together again in the near future.  Yay!
