11.3 miles @ 9:16 pace
My training plan called for 8 miles on Sunday. However, my Appalachian Trail adventure cut my Saturday long run short, so I decided to tack on a few extra miles onto Sunday's run to make my 46 miles for the week.
I ran the popular 8.5 mile Kelly drive loop by the river, and added a couple miles to the end. It was a gorgeous sunny day, but the 20 mile per hour winds from every direction left something to be desired. My legs definitely felt heavy and tired, but the road run was easy compared to the previous day's snowy trail trek.
After the run, I met up with my friend Diana at Lemon Hill for brunch. We caught up on life over delicious food and drinks. I enjoyed a yummy kale/steak flatbread with a couple of mimosas, while Diana sipped on bloody marys.
After brunch, I headed back to my place to get ready for the Mumford and Sons concert. Josh and I invited our friends Jess and Janine over to have dinner and drinks before the show.
Mumford and Sons were fantastic, as usual. This was my third time seeing them, and they did not fail to impress. I'm so happy they have become wildly successful in America since breaking out into the music scene here about 3 years ago.

This was one of the most fun weekends I've had in a very long time. Between running in the snow on the Appalachian Trail, brunching with a good friend, seeing one of my favorite bands in concert, and hitting my highest weekly mileage ever (46 miles), I could not have asked for a better weekend!
