CMA Fest 2010

I've been a slacker! Two weekends ago I went down to Nashville, TN to visit a friend and join in on some CMA Fest fun. As always, Heather was a great host. She and her soon to be husband really knew how to make us feel at home. We had some great home cooked meals and homemade cocktails! We even went for a much need massage. It was a super relaxing weekend.

Friday night we went down to LP field to listen to some country! We went to see Julianne Hough, Reba, Josh Turner, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, and Kid Rock! It was a blast!

It was very hot, but that didn't stop me from wearing my boots!

Saturday we ran in the CMA Road Race 5k. This was my 3rd race and their first. It was a super hot day, I'm talking 100*!! 
Here we are before the race:

Finishing the race strong

Heather and Meagan coming in!

We did it! 
 At first I was a little disappointed in myself, I had to walk for a short time :( 
But I did come in at #140 out of 800 (40th woman to finish!) and #10 in my age group. After seeing my results I was happy. 
My time was 26:30
Heather and Meagan came in at 49:20-I am so happy they did this with me!

On Sunday, we went down to the Nashville Farmers Market. 
Oh my goodness, there were so many wonderful things there!

I came home with some  pole beans, potatoes, and peaches. I love buying from farmers market's. It's so nice to talk to the people who grow the food. 

That was my weekend! It is so nice to get away with girlfriends. 
Next time I'll see Heather is this weekend at her bachelorette party and bridal shower here in Cincy-can't wait!

I'm so jealous! It looks/sounds like you girls had a blast! I've been talking with a few friends and we're going to try and make it down there for CMA Fest next year.
