For Charleston standards, it was cold this week, so it was nice to sleep in some mornings!
Tuesday night, I attended the Yelpie Elite Awards Dinner at 5Church, a new restaurant on Market Street, Downtown Charleston. As a Yelp Elite, I received a complimentary 3-course meal from 5Church in exchange for an honest review. Speaking of honest reviews, I’ve left over 300 reviews on Yelp if you want to check them out.
5Church is now on my radar for a fun lunch or brunch downtown, and if you’re in Charleston, it should be on yours. I had delicious warm bread, a mixed green salad, wasabi encrusted salmon with bok choy, and a pretzel bar dessert.
Although our food took awhile to come out, it was well worth the wait because the Charleston Yelp Elite crew got to spend more time socializing. They also gave out fun little awards based on Yelp participation, and I got one for being talkative on the Charleston-area forum.
I love writing reviews and having the opportunity to be a Yelp Elite.
Wendesday night was the Fleet Feet Summerville Pub Run, and since most of the track crew ran in a race last weekend, we cancelled track to attend. Everyone ran with glow sticks, and they gave out some door prizes- including shoes. I tested out the new Nike Pegasus shoes and really liked them.
Fleet Feet Summerville’s hosted some fun events lately, and it’s a great addition to our local running scene and to the Summerville area in general.
On Saturday, I went to BodyPump instead of running, since I didn’t go to BodyPump on Monday or Wednesday. If you slept in on Saturday, you missed the Great Charleston Blizzard of 2016. My friend Lisa captured all the action in Mt Pleasant. We didn’t have any accumilation at my West Ashley home- our porch is enclosed so the flakes could not accumilate on our chairs.
I spent most of Saturday afternoon cleaning my office and kitchen. The joy of a recovery week is that my house actually gets cleaned!
That night, Clay and I went on a triple date to the Ramen with Friends pop-up event that Short Grain Food Truck hosted. I had the Ebi Ramen which was made with smoked shrimp, ramen, egg, and veggies. It was a great night for soup!
On Sunday, I went for an awesome long run downtown with the OnShore Racing Sunday run group. It was 35 degrees, but we got it done- even if it required pants and gloves. Eight miles was long enough for me this week, but I had a strong run with even pacing (the last mile was the fastest!). I skipped brunch to relax and watch football.
I hope everyone has a great week and stays warm, dry, and safe if your weather’s rough!
