|That second climb was pretty darn hard and I had to walk some :(|
What else have I been up to in an effort to not train for this race?
I went snowshoeing! It was a perfectly gorgeous Pacific Northwest day and my friend Molly introduced me to the wonders of snowshoeing after I received some as a x-mas gift my my dad. It was a ton of fun after I figured out that you just have to walk like a normal person and dig in when you need some extra support.
I took a weekend trip to Portland to hang out with one of my best gal pals. We basically ate brunch and chatted the whole weekend...it was awesome! I would highly highly recommend both places we went to. Seeing these two photos next to each other has me laughing out loud because one is such a MEAT eaters dream and the other is completely VEGAN...but both were equally delicious!
|Brunch #1 - Charcoal smoked brisket, pepper slaw, fried egg, brioche from Clyde Common|
|Brunch #2 - Sweet potato and tempeh hash with coconut "bacon" on a bed of kale from Blossoming Lotus|
There has also been some Flywheeling and barre classes thrown in for good measure...I'm all about getting a total body workout wherever I can, especially if it means I don't have to run ;).
I've also been spending lots of time obsessing over Sedona weather and looking up hikes, wineries, and stuff to do while we are there...can I just be there already?!
Question: What is your favorite brunch dish/location? Hands down, Portage Bay in Seattle is my favorite! Although the pretzelwich breakfast sandwich at Bravehorse Tavern comes in a close second.
