We then watched Friends of course!!

Our friends then showed up and we went to buffalo wild wings where I ordered the Chicken Tender Wrap with Ranch and fries! Yummmm!!

Cameron on the left and Wes on the right. Alex was giving them a taste test challenge: Oreos vs Newman-O’s. Mainly because Wes is against all organic food because he says its not real and tastes bad haha. They didn’t dislike the Newman O’s but said they would be good in milk too! YAY for Newman O’s!!

We basically just played games and then watched Steve Prefontaine in Without Limits.


Alex’s mom came to visit us and was so gracious to take us out to breakfast at Cracker Barrel, get us some weekly groceries at Schnucks and then take our bikes back home so we can have more room for our luggage for spring break!

Cracker Barrel I ordered the Double Meat and 3 eggs.

Sorry for the bad picture, I was too close and too hungry to fix positions lol. I also had a piece of toast with this meal.

I was supposed to do a 5 mile run but I got so burnt out running that I physically could not run fast or a lot. Plus I was having some massive stomach pains. So Alex and I cut the run short to 4.5 miles.

mile 2: 8:53
mile 3: 8:43
