Last night, Dad and I went to The Avett Brothers‘ concert in Little Rock. The tickets were our birthday presents to each other. In all actuality, my Dad isn’t a huge fan of concerts (or any event with large crowds in general) – but I bought the tickets and pretty much told him he was going, and we’re both glad we did!
I have wanted to see them live since the first time I watched a Youtube video of them singing and they did not disappoint. The concert was AMAZING (INCREDIBLE, OUTSTANDING… I could go on, but you get the point.)
There was no opening act. The Avett Brothers came out and rocked the Verizon Arena – it was 2.5 hours of pure, unadulterated awesomeness. They blew us away with their energy. They sounded phenomenal. We left a little in awe.
Basically, it was a total blast and if I was in LOVE with The Avett Brothers before, you ain’t seen nothing yet. LOL.
If you aren’t familiar with their music – you should be, what are you waiting for? Go you their website, or Youtube and educate yourself!!!
A while back I heard The Color Run was taking place in my city and while I knew I wasn’t ready to run it quite yet, I also knew I wanted to be involved. So I signed up to volunteer.
Those of you that really know me, know that this is slightly a-typical behavior for me. Why? Well I’m a bit of an introverted-homebody. Talking to strangers isn’t my strong suit. Writing to them on the internet, that I can do; but face-to-face small talk usually has me running in the opposite direction. It’s not that I don’t like meeting new people or participating in things, I just, well, I take after my introverted dad more than my extroverted mom, so it’s not always easy for me.
Today though, I had a total blast!
I put myself out there, I participated in life. I had SO MUCH FUN!!!
I was stationed in “color zone 4,” near the end of the race, and it was our job to throw blue powder on all of the runners/walkers as they passed. We cheered and laughed and woohooed.
We turned blue.
I had a blast volunteering, but I’m determined that next year, I’m going to run. I’m gonna make my dad and little sister train with me this year so we can run it together, it’ll be a challenge for me (Nothing for my dad who once ran the Chicago marathon!) – but I’m already excited!
