7.5 Mile Sunday and Spring Break Re-cap

7.5 Miles

Sunday, SIL and I went on our walk/run. We started at Centennial Park and instead of going on the course, we went down West End and then to Broadway all the way down until we got to the river, we went down 2nd and up church for a bit, went by the Ryman and then back to Broadway onward back to Centennial. IT WAS HOT! Luckily we had propel and Power Bar Energy chewies! I also was sporting my new dri fit tank from Academy and my "swear by" nike dri fit tight running shorts! While on this trek, I got to make my downtown/Broadway st. to do list, which includes:
  • Eating at Demo's
  • Seeing a show at the Ryman Auditorium
  • Going to the Big Bang-Dueling Piano Bar
  • Going to the Wildhorse Saloon to learn how to line dance
  • Get a pair of Cowboy boots from a store where you can buy 1 and get 2 pairs free!!
  • Eat at The Melting Pot
  • Check out all the other music venues downtown!
If you see something that is missing from my list that is a must do-please comment and let me know!

  1. omg. you definitely need good cowboy boots (everyone does in my opinion). I told Jesse before we left the west I NEEDED a pair of authentic boots. we went and I tried on boots for an hour before settling on a great pair. then Jesse was jealous and we spent another hour on him. I LOVE THEM. as a result of spending 2 hours in a boot store, I know plenty about them if you need help ;)

  2. Demo's is amazing! They have great weekday lunch prices. I think at some point we should go to the Billy Block Local's Only show at Tootsies.
