Warrior Dash, a Wedding, and more!

The past few weekends have been extremely busy, to say the least. This is the first weekend in about a month that I have been in town. Greg, some of his friends, and I went up to Mountain City, Ga. during the second week of May and participated in Warrior Dash. This is a 3 mile race complete with about 10 different obstacles. These obstacles range from swimming in a lake, to crawling through a mud pit under barbed wire and finishing the race jumping over fire. After the race, you get a complimentary beer and banana, and live music! It's pretty much a huge party with thousands of people dressed in crazy costumes. Greg and I shared a smoked turkey leg; it was awesome! Unfortunately, I didn't take my camera to the race, so I don't have any pictures. The weekend after that, Greg and I stayed in Atlanta. Greg's company sponsors the Special Olympics, so we volunteered at the Summer Games at Emory. I am very lucky to be able to have that experience, all thanks to Greg's work!  The next weekend was Memorial Day and I had the fortunate opportunity to go to Lake Weiss in northeast Alabama. A couple who ran the Warrior Dash with us have a lake house there. We (including Duncan) had such a good time! Duncan ran around SO much on Saturday he could barely walk on Sunday because he had blisters on his feet. Poor baby!

Greg took this picture of the sunrise. Beautiful!

Last weekend, Greg's friends from Berry got married in Kentucky. Even though I was not really looking forward to traveling again, it was an awesome weekend! We stayed in this historic inn right in the center of a small town about an hour outside of Lexington called Berea. The rehearsal dinner was two doors down and all we had to do was walk out our hotel and we were there! The next day we awoke early, had breakfast with some friends, and then drove to Lexington for the wedding and reception. The wedding was during the day and it was very nice. Great food, delicious beer selection, and fun people! When we got back to our hotel we took a 15 minute power nap and got ready for the farm party. Bryce (the groom) owns a farm that sits on 480 amazing acres. The party was a lot of fun!

You don't really get to experience land and sunsets like this in Atlanta.

As fun as the past month has been, I am very excited that we stayed in Atlanta this weekend! Yesterday, Greg and I checked out Dekalb Farmers Market. I had never been before. It is huge! There is every fruit and veggie imaginable. It was quite crowded, but I actually surprised myself at how well I handled the crowd.

Welp, tonight Greg and my friend Lisa and her boyfriend, Nathan, and myself are headed to the Fox Theatre to see Mumford and Sons! I am so excited. I will do a separate post on how that is! Have a wonderful Sunday!
