A Weekend in Lynchburg for the Virginia 4 Miler

A Weekend in Lynchburg for the Virginia 4 Miler

The weekend that I ran the 4 Miler was also a fun trip to Lynchburg—after we finished the 4 Miler we had the rest of the weekend to eat delicious food, explore downtown Lynchburg, and hang out with my family and H’s family. Lynchburg is the quintessential small town, so I saw tons of old classmates and family friends at the 10 Miler and 4 Miler. Downtown Lynchburg especially is way cooler than it used to be, so we always have to check out what’s new.

This weekend was my second time running the Virginia 4 Miler, which is held in concurrence with the iconic Virginia 10 Miler in Lynchburg. My parents always have people over to watch the race since they live on the course, so it’s special for me to have my family and neighbors cheering me on. I ran the 4 Miler last year and was hoping to beat my time this year.

CC Takes New York: Brooklyn

CC Takes New York: Brooklyn

We spent Sunday of my girls’ weekend in New York in Brooklyn. The friend I was visiting lives in Brooklyn, so she planned our day. After our Sunday exploring, I see why Brooklyn was the birthplace of hipster culture—everywhere we went was cool-without-trying. During our day in Manhattan I had a vague idea of where we were, but, unfortunately, I totally lost track of which neighborhoods we visited in Brooklyn.

What to Wear for a Country Wedding Weekend

What to Wear for a Country Wedding Weekend

For our second wedding of 2018, we traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia the first weekend of September to see one of H’s best friends from childhood get married. Despite the buckets of rain that fell throughout the weekend and realizing the week before that the dress I had planned on wearing wouldn’t work, it was a perfect country garden wedding.

Birthday Dinner

Birthday Dinner

I’m still getting used to adult birthdays—I have a summer birthday, so growing up I didn’t usually have school on my birthday and many years it occurs during my family’s beach vacation. This year I was working on my birthday, but H and I went out to dinner afterwards to make the day special. We were also looking forward to a vacation at the beach with my family the next week.
