It’s a 2 blog post kind of day because I have a million things to blog about! I still have a couple wedding recaps coming, homeymoon recaps, another race recap and a dinner recap.
Usually my Labor Day weekends consist of lots of running, cookouts and very busy plans. This year was very different. I had maybe one thing every day but nothing too crazy.
Friday-Stayed in and went to bed early.
Saturday-5 mile race, hot and humid and then went shopping with my BFF.
Sunday-Went for a nice run and got to run the last mile and a half with Ryan. Then we headed to Fairlawn for the Food Trucks and then we went to get somethings off our registry. It was a very productive Sunday.
Monday-Went for another run before heading up to the Oktoberfest. The Oktoberfest is in town all weekend and always a favorite to go to. Delish food, music, dancing, a 5K (which I didn’t run) AND WEINER DOG RACES.
They have multiple categories for the weiner dogs, puppies, adult. senior and special needs. It was so cool seeing the different kinds of weiner dogs.
I think Bodhi had a little too much excitement before his race. Everyone wanted to stop and see him and other dogs wanted to say hello. By the time it was his turn to race, he fell asleep! It was about 10 minutes before the race so we thought maybe it was a short nap.
Bodhi had no issue getting in the gate but when the gate went up, Bodhi just stayed there. All the other dogs ran but not Bodhi. Bodhi will forever be known as the dog who didn’t run. He may have had his first ever DNS/DNF (Did not start/Did not finish) but he definitely won everyone’s attention with his cuteness.
After the Oktoberfest, we headed over to a friends house for a last minute cookout. They even invited Bodhi to come with us.
Bodhi took multiple mini naps throughout the day but when we got home he was knocked out.
The long and relaxing weekend was exactly what I needed to recharge for a short work week.
What are your favorite things to do on labor day weekend?
