Hello Monday – back to the grind. A catch up day for work, blogging (some posts and comments to follow up on), and life. I had a wonderful time in Philly and look forward to sharing snippets of the weekend with you. Today I am linking up with Tara at Running n’ Reading for her Weekend Update.

Following Shamrock Weekend (my race recaps and linkup here and here) I came down with a cold. After a few days of rest + medicine I was all ready for half marathon #21 this past Sunday (St. Michaels Half training kicked off this week). Prior to our mini road trip, I made an oatmeal pancake topped with Truwhip and strawberries.
On Friday we went to Citizens Bank field for packet pickup (picture above) and explored the city for a little bit. The next day Cliff and I went to Reading Terminal Market for some breakfast and Beiler’s donuts – so good!
Visited the location of Tun Tavern – where the Marine Corps was founded (the tavern no longer exists, but there is a marker of where it once stood). There was a nice view of (I believe) the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.
Later in they day we met some friends and headed to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, a colorful mosaic gallery.
The weekend ended with a nice PR! I’ll be sharing my race recap this week.
How was your weekend?
Have you ever visited Philly?
