Another weekend, another wedding! Let’s start at the beginning…
Matt and I drove to Baltimore on Friday afternoon. The wedding was at the beautiful Marriott Waterfront Hotel. The rehearsal dinner was that night and the bride and groom graciously opened up the event to all guests at 9PM. An open bar is the perfect way to recover from a 20-miler…thanks Amanda!
The Bay Cafe. Sand floors and plenty of cold Miller Lite!
Late-night pizza and shenanigans.
I started off Saturday with an easy 4-miler on the treadmill at the hotel gym. I wanted to sleep in but not deal with the heat so the treadmill was the only option.
We have been waiting for this wedding for a long time. Amanda and Mike are the last of the Mains – my close group of friends – to get married. Everyone was so excited for a weekend away (sans kids for many of them!).
Amanda and her dad walking down the aisle. Doesn’t she look beautiful?
The cocktail hour was outside on a rooftop deck overlooking the waterfront. It was quite toasty but the perfect spot for a photo shoot.
Me and Matt. I’m desperately trying not to squint.
…and a little later on in the night…
All the lady Mains rounded up for a picture.
Congratulations Amanda and Mike! We had a fantastic time!

That hotel is so nice … I stayed there this past year on a weekend trip to Baltimore 🙂
What a gorgeous bride! I love the Baltimore Waterfront. If you saw anyone on a pirate cruise shooting a canon filled with water at you at any point, that may have been me. Glad you guys had fun!

How many miles did Matt run? I am sure you didn’t bang into Jimmy in the gym. Great pictures and it looked like great fun.
Oh please – Matt has retired from running!
Jimmy and Sara were both at the gym before me, hammering out some major miles!
What a fun wedding! You look so fit in all your pictures. 🙂
This seems to be “The Summer of Weddings” for you guys! Bride looked gorgeous, as did you!
A couple more hard weeks, then taper time!
Another fabulous wedding, and I agree, the Bride looked stunning. What a way to celebrate a 20-mile post run — at an open-bar. And, great job on getting your butt to the hotel gym treadmill. You are dedicated to this training plan!!!

Looks like a fun wedding – and the bride’s dress is gorgeous!
