It was a great Saturday.

This morning started with some coffees from Biggby Coffee

YUM! Biggby has terrific hot chocolate. I love mine with some butterscotch added to it.

After we had our drinks in hand, we stopped at JackRabbit in Obryanville

At last year’s Higher Gravity Spring Grove Beer Gallop, Genifer won a $125  gift certificate towards a brand new running shoes from JackRabbit. And with this year’s Spring Grove Beer Gallop right around the corner, Genifer thought she’d better get some new running shoes…

Genifer got these Brooks running shoes…

These terrific running shoes only cost her $25. And that’s pretty awesome.

Later, we ran out to get lunch at Freddy’s Steakburgers

Ohmigosh. I love Freddy’s Steakburgers….

I think I’ve finally zeroed in on my go-to Freddy’s order. I think it’s going to be the original double. This is the original double with bacon…

But next time and into the future, my order will be just the original double with fries…

I used to get the triple steakburger. Sometimes I could do it. But sometimes, it was a real struggle and it was too much. Freddy’s also has a patty melt that is really good. But it’s not like a traditional patty melt. But it’s still really good.

On our way home for Freddy’s, we stopped in College Hill at Brink Brewing. Brink is one of my favorite Cincinnati breweries…

They have such great beers. Our big beer was a King Cake beer. It was awesome. Brink always has something really interesting on tap.

And that was pretty much our Saturday. We were pretty happy that we actually got out and did something on a Saturday…

And it was a great Saturday.

Spring Grove Beer Gallop.

Very similar to last year’s Hamilton Hightail Run, this morning was the Spring Grove Beer Gallop. It was a 4-mile roundtrip fun run that started at Higher Gravity that included stops at Taft’s Brewpourium and Urban Artifact. Runner also got 4 beer tickets, a T-shirt and a whole lotta fun!

And we showed up in Higher Gravity’s Instagram story…

And with that, they were off…

If my counting was correct, Genifer came in fourteenth. In the raffle after the race, Genifer won a pair of new running shoes from JackRabbit…

It was a fun morning and early afternoon at Higher Gravity. 😀👟🍺❤️

The Hamilton Hightail Run.

This morning Genifer ran in The Hamilton Hightail Run. Hosted by Higher Gravity and JackRabbit, The Hamilton Hightail Run was a bar and brewery run billed as a fun and social prep event for the Flying Pig Marathon…

The race started at Higher Gravity with a 2.8-mile run up the Hamilton Avenue hill to Brink Brewing in College Hill. From there the race came back down Hamilton Avenue to Urban Artifact and then ended with a 0.2-mile sprint down Blue Rock Street back to Higher Gravity…

And a little over two hours later, I spotted Genifer about to cross Hamilton Avenue back to Higher Gravity. And I managed to get a video of her finishing the run

She completed the run in just over 2 hours and 20 minutes…

And then we got to have a couple of beers together. She said it was a pretty good run. The worst part about it was the leg up to Brink because it was almost entirely uphill. I chose to stay and wait for her at Higher Gravity. In hindsight, I should have just caught the 17 bus up Hamilton to meet her at Brink. And then rode the 17 back down Hamilton and walked over to Higher Gravity. If they do the run again next year, that’s exactly what I’ll do. 😀🏃‍♀️🍻❤️
