First up, workouts from last week:
And now it is time to lower the mileage before conquering 48.6 miles in less than 3 weeks! I don’t know if I’m excited or petrified…
Holiday Bucket List update:
A very Billy Joel Christmas:
Each year for my parents’ anniversary, we go to a show or do something as a family to celebrate the number of years those two crazy kids have liked each other. Sooo when I saw that Billy Joel was having a December concert at MSG, I jumped right on that!
My parents have seen Billy Joel live before but my brother and I had not. We had reservations at Feile, an Irish restaurant/bar right by MSG. I loved how this place had the TVs playing past Billy Joel concerts during dinner! It really helped in raising my excitement (not that I needed any help there).
Once at MSG, I obviously needed this bag:
We had great seats on the side near the stage. When I first bought the tickets, I thought our seats were awful and that we were basically going to be behind the stage. Much to my surprise, our seats were fantastic and we were close enough that I actually watched Billy Joel as opposed to looking at the jumbotron.
I’m so glad that we went to his concert during the holidays as Billy Joel mixed Christmas songs in throughout his entire set.
Here is the song list from the evening:
