We Rock the Party

I don't typically recap my weekend here on the blog, and I don't typically do it on a Tuesday, and I don't typically do it with more photos than words, but there's a first time for everything. Trust me, it was a good one.

This past weekend, Tracy and Kristen and I met up in D.C. for a long-anticipated weekend of awesome. Oh yeah, and we were running a half marathon too. NBD. We got there Friday afternoon, checked in, and headed out to the Rock 'n Roll Race Expo to gear up for race day.
And Tracy & I disappointed Kristen with our inability to take a whimsical photo.
Next up we grabbed a late lunch at Busboys & Poets...
...before a late dinner of obscene amounts of carbs. Oh yes, we all three had fettuccine Alfredo for dinner. Garlic bread and bruschetta too.

Next morning, we woke up groggily (why do the best chats always take place in the wee hours of the late night/early morning?) and got ready for our race. It rained, and it didn't stop, and we were cold, but we did it. (Full race recap coming tomorrow!)

When we fiiiiinally got back to the hotel and regained the feeling in our pruney fingers and toes, we basically just ate and slept for the rest of the day. And I'm not even a little bit sorry about it.

Sunday and check-out came way too quickly, but we made the very best of it.
We waited on a 15-minute line for Georgetown Cupcake—yes, they were worth it. Then finally, Carly found us and we four had a delicious, chatty brunch at Peacock Cafe on a sunny side street in Georgetown.
The time to head home came far too soon, but the weekend was great while it lasted. I had the best time seeing Tracy and Kristen again, and it was so nice to meet Becky and have Carly join us for brunch. I'm one lucky blogger to have all these great gals close enough to meet up with like this!

So, when's the next one, girls?? Hope the rest of you all had a great weekend too!


  1. I am totally jealous that you, Tracy and Kristen all got to meet up!!!! However, I am not jealous of your cold, rainy run for miles and miles haha :) Looks like you guys had a fabulous time!!!

  2. Um the next one is ASAP? Best weekend! Even if we stayed up way too late and ate too much (just kidding, I don't really believe in too much food). So the question still remains...did you have to pump your own gas on the way home?!

  3. bloggy meet-ups are the best!! glad you guys had so much fun AND you ran a half together!!

  4. looks like so much fun. I'm so jealous y'all were in my city and i was somewhere else. I totally would have crashed the party if I wasn't in OHIO!!!

  5. What a perfect weekend!! So many great bloggers all in one space!! You know we have races in Boston too :) Just saying! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  6. I saw some of these pics on Kristen's instagram over the weekend! So glad you ladies had a great time!

  7. this is the best recap EVER. I had the best time, for reals. If Tracy comes to the ville to volunteer for Ironman, you should too! I promise I'll have a bed for y'all by then ;)

  8. I'm jealous of everything that happened with your weekend except for the 13.1 in the rain and the non-Finish Tent I read about on Tracy's blog! I could do some carb-loading and cupcakes (and yoga!) though!

  9. How awesome that you guys were able to spend the weekend together, even if it did involve running (which I applaud along with all the food you consumed). Some of my favorite weekends are blogger weekends!

  10. First of all... I sucked at blogging this week so Im just getting to reading this. You guys are the cutest seriously. So happy to see three of my faves together. You look like you had a blast and ummm those carbs were prob burnt off in the first 15 minutes of your race. Also that French toast in the last pic makes me miss wheat sooooo bad!

  11. Sounds like you had a great weekend even with the rain! All of the food sounds delicious :D
