This morning Sarah was in the Run the Bluegrass Half Marathon in Lexington, and it turned into a wonderful family time. We met yesterday afternoon and went to the Race Expo at Keeneland to pick up her packet and shirt. Then we went to Joe Bologna's for their fabulous Italian food. I had eggplant parmesan, really, really good.
Steph and the grands came in the evening. The kids adore Aunt Sarah and talked and talked.
It was a cold day for a race, and this race was huge. Sarah told us how long it would take her to get to the finish line, and we timed that well.
Steph's co-worker recommended Winchell's for lunch, and it was a great recommendation. Steph, Sarah, and I all had the shrimp and grits, warm with peppers and onions and a wonderful broth.
One of Sarah's Lexington friends, Jason Baines, was killed in a bicycle accident a couple of years ago and some of his friends erected a ghost bike in his honor. Seeing the memorial was something Sarah definitely wanted to do this weekend.
Now Sarah is on her way home, driving through the gorge on I-40. Steph and the kids are at a hockey game, and here I am. Everyone is scattered again. This weekend was a wonderful gift.
