My youngest brother Brad came in town from Milwaukee, WI to spend time with the family. I made everyone tag along with me to Lowes which has become my new spot as I make upgrades and cosmetic changes to my recently purchased home. I like taking my time in Lowes just in case someone from HGTV jumps out offering a gourmet kitchen or backyard oasis remodel.
Brad took us to Buca Di Beppo where we sat in the best seat in the house located in the kitchen. We had a great time laughing with the chefs and waiters as they prepared dishes. Afterwards, I helped my foster daughter with her dog walking job to burn off some calories.
On Memorial Day, I took the girls to the Hike, Bike and Paddle event hosted by Mayor Greg Fischer. I’ve done the Hike and Bike portions in previous years, but this year I wanted to paddle and hike.
I saved the Bike portion for a toy with a little more power than a road bike. I’ve had my Motorcycle Instructional Permit for a while. I just need to take the road test to make it official.
On June 1st, we celebrated Global Running Day in the Highlands with Fleet Feet Sports Store and Dan from Norton Sports Health.
I woke up this morning to news that Muhammad Ali passed away. His legacy gave me that extra motivation to run 10 miles knowing that he also ran on these streets of Louisville. The girls and I placed balloons and flowers at the Ali Center’s makeshift memorial. I wanted them to experience history in the making as we reflected on his six core principles.
