A weekend of extremes...

Matt said it perfectly the other day- “We either pack the weekend full of excitement or do nothing.” I guess we’re just extremely busy or extremely bored, and once we get moving we just can’t stop.


7:00am- We got up early to get packed and organized for the events to come later in the day and on Sunday. We had a Volkswagen meet-up, a wedding, a reception, and a challenging event- spread across the great state of New York.

9:30am- Noon: Car loaded and on the road to a meet-up with some of the local Volkswagen folks. We all made our way down the Thruway toward Rochester to check out a local business that specializes in car modifications. It was a pretty neat company and the cleanest, most organized auto shop I have ever been in!

Noon- 2:00pm: On the road toward the Volkswagen meet-up we realized we forgot to grab Matt’s dress shoes. Oops! So after leaving the meet up we headed toward a mall in Rochester to quickly get Matt shoes to wear to the wedding, we changed into our wedding dress clothes, then hit the road again for a 40 minute drive to the church ceremony. We arrived with a few minutes spare, but not many. (I have no pictures from the wedding due to my dysfunctional camera.)

2:00: Emily & Jon's Wedding Ceremony

3:00pm-6:00pm: We had three hours between the wedding and reception, so what did we do? We went to our go-to place: Barnes & Nobles! It is such a great place to spend time reading magazines and sippin' coffee.

6:30pm-10:00pm: We enjoyed a nice reception in the Rochester area, with good food and great dance moves by Matt. Unfortunately we had to cut it short because we had a lot of miles to cover before we could rest! We're just glad we had a chance to have some fun before we had to run.

10:00pm-2:00am: We got back on the Thruway and headed to Kingston. We are crazy, young people who like to try to do as much as possible, and all at one time. We had to be in Kingston in the morning for an epic adventure, so we just figured it was best to do it after the wedding. Matt let me sleep while he did the driving- such a good guy!

So what was it that we had to get to Kingston for???? Do you remember when I mentioned Warrior Dash on my blog a while ago???? It was called 'Are we crazy???'. Well believe it or not, this weekend it was time for us to finally take on the challenge and become WARRIORS!!!!

However since this post is getting long, I'm going to leave you with a cliffhanger. I will tell we covered the 3.23 miles and 13 obstacles with success and met the challenge. You'll get the details, possibly pictures, and hopefully official stats from the race tomorrow.

Did you do anything crazy this weekend???
