Sunday Funday – I haven’t been doin’ so hot keeping up with my weekend posts. I’d really like to get in the habit of posting the Weekend Workout on Saturdays and a recap of fun Memphis things on Sundays – so, at the expense of a home-cooked dinner, folded laundry and a tidy room, here’s a recap of some Memphis fun.
I had big plans to regain some kitchen confidence after my salmon semi-disaster on Friday but decided instead to save the time, effort and food for a day later this week. Instead I’ve picked up a coffee (yes, you read that right – it’s 7:30 pm and I’m drinking coffee – caffeine has nothin’ on this girl) and sandwich from Miss Cordelia’s on Mud Island and am completely captivated by Law Abiding Citizen (this post may take longer than I planned, as I’m writing only on commercial breaks…)
Yesterday I was so lucky as to be offered very last minute Grizzlies tickets from a client and friend who wasn’t going to be using theirs. The NBA isn’t my favorite sports league (I was turned off big time when my hometown Pacers turned gangster in a big brawl with the Pistons)
But 6 years with the Memphis Grizzlies is starting to turn me around. I guess they truly got me last year with their incredible playoff run – quite a few games were watched from the nosebleeds. But not yesterday…….! I took three friends and we were in the club level seats!
The Grizz played a great game while we enjoyed free food and drinks from above. I realized two things at the game – 1. I’d like to continue to work hard so that someday I make enough money to have those seats at every game and 2. I miss playing basketball.
After the game I met some friends out for drinks at Bardog and stayed out waaaay past my usual weekend bedtime of 10 pm. So worth it.
Heaven in Memphis
After a productive fitness morning (run # 15 and a South African-themed Spin class) I set off on a little shopping adventure. Just a short drive away from Midtown is a runner’s/fitness professional’s/comfy-clothes-lover’s heaven. The Nike Factory Store.
Inside this factory store, you will find all the best Nike products at seriously, ridiculously marked down prices. Shorts, shirts, jackets, gym bags, pants, and………..
I browsed the clothes for a while but was truly there for the shoes. Normally I strike out on the “cool shoes” because of my big feet but not today! I’ve been looking for some pink shoes and Nike Frees for a long time and today they combined into one fantastic discounted shoe.
Since they’re white, I’ll obviously only be wearing them while I train my clients – we’ll see how long their crispness lasts.
Next time you’re in the market for new workout gear – check out the factory store.

Good night friends, many of you don’t work tomorrow but this chick does 🙂
