Weekend Update

I am finally doing a weekend update on a Monday!  Never mind the fact that it isn't technically from this past weekend.  Let's just move on from that, shall we?

I have no idea what is going on with me, because I am rarely sick, but, man...I am down and out.  Feels like a serious cold with some sort of sinus infection going on.  I actually had to stay home from student teaching today which I hate doing, but I know I would have passed this on to my kids and cooperating teachers.  I have been out of it most of the day, but finally got a bit of energy to try and write this out.

A few weeks ago, to kick off the beginning of the NFL season, Joel, me, and some of our friends got together and participated in the NFL Run Series here in St. Louis.  It was a 5K, but probably the coolest 5K I've done, as a football fan.  We finished the race on the 50 yard line of the Rams Stadium, and an announcer called out your name as you finished.  SO cool!  Here are some pics from the day.





The next day we went to the Rams game to cheer them on.  Thanks to the race, we were able to get $5 tickets to the game.  Not the best seats in the house, but hey, they were more than worth their $5.  We also went to my favorite breakfast spot in St. Louis, Rooster.  Do yourself a favor and eat there if you ever get the opportunity.  I can't say enough good things, so I'll let the pictures talk for themselves.



It was a blast hanging out with friends, and hey, the Rams won!  That's what I call a successful weekend.  And the Dolphins are 3-0!  My Indy weekend recap with the Phins game will appear before too long.

That food looks AMAZING! I'm super jealous you were able to go to an NFL game! I love being overseas, but I hate missing out on football season back home.

The Broncos did that run here too! Friends of mine did it, but since I can't run 3 feet, I didn't participate. Sounds awesome though!
