What a special date!
Justin and I celebrated our two year anniversary this past Friday :)
We went to Magnolia Grill in Durham. I've heard a lot of great reviews about this restaurant and knew it would be the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. We asked our waiter for his recommendations because everything looked so delicious, and he said the chef is most proud of his seafood entrees because they're local fish that are shipped in from the North Carolina coast every day.
We decided on the grouper and flounder. Yum! We especially loved the banana foster desert :)
This evening was very similar to the night we actually started dating. Two years ago....Justin and I went to dinner together and were supposed to go to a Carolina basketball game, but got so wrapped up in our dinner conversation that we missed it.
This past anniversary was also the same day as the Carolina game on the aircraft carrier. Since we're older and wiser now, we made reservations at 5:30pm (old people dinner time) and then finished in time to catch the game! We love our Heels!
The next morning we woke up bright and early at 7:30am to run 9 miles and get the weekend started.
It was a chilly 30 degrees! Brrrrrr.
Doesn't he look like he's having fun already? Ice on the car was not very encouraging, but I was still all smiles and ready to run...
I love my new pink jacket! It's a the perfect running jacket for these cooler temperatures. It has a nice fleece lining, but still thin and warm. I thought I would wear it for the run, but I knew how hot I would get so I stuck it out with just a long sleeve shirt.
Definitely need to invest in some gloves because our hands were chilly!
Ever since my run with Anne, I knew I wanted to go back to the Tobacco Trail for my long runs. It's over 22 miles of trails for bikers, runners and walkers. It's generally pretty flat, but you can definitely notice slight inclines/declines along the way.
It ended up being a great run...
Followed by endorphin overdose...
Not sure why I like to jump in the air after my long runs, but it always seems to happen :)
The fall leaves along the way were truly breathtaking. I felt like I was in runner's heaven on that trail.
Overall it was the perfect anniversary - date night, Carolina basketball and a long run - doesn't get much better than that :)
