a short stint in SF.

25 Jun

I promised I’d do a full re-cap of SF – and I will go into detail for sure. But first, I wanted to get out the nuts and bolts of my trip!

Whitney and I left (via car) on Friday at 3 pm. We hit some traffic getting out of LA (and when the 5 went down to one lane for a little while), but we got into SF a little after 10. We stayed with one of my best friends from college, Kathleen, in a gorgeous house with a few roommates.

Saturday morning we got up, downed some delicious Blue Bottle, and rented bikes. Kathleen took us on a cycling tour of 3 SF gastropubs – definitely a highlight of the trip. I will do a complete post later this week about our exact route…we named our event the “Cerveza Cycle.”

Other highlights from the trip included dinner with a big gaggle of some of my favorite AXO girls at Más Sake in the Marina, going out in the Marina at Kt’s and Eastside West, and relaxing in Chrissy Field. Whitney and I left around 3:30 on Sunday and made great time, until the 5 slowed us down with its down-to-one-lane nonsense.

All in all, it was a fantastic trip. I’m trying to get back to some healthier habits this week (hellooooo self-imposed detox, goodbye alcohol) and enjoy the LA sun!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the weekend…

What. a. trip.

In other news – I have been following the Olympic Trials a little bit. I can’t believe there was a suggestion to solve the tie-for-third-place problem in the women’s 100 meter by a COIN TOSS. My fingers are crossed for Allyson Felix.

Also, LOVE Ashton Eaton. WHAT A BEAST.

Although this is a tangent, here are my workouts from last week:

  • Monday – 2 mi. run + NROLF 2A
  • Tuesday – 4 mi. run PM
  • Wednesday – 3 mi. run AM
  • Thursday – NROLFW 2B
  • Friday: 6 am Cycle!
  • Saturday (approx. 8 mile bike ride).
  • Sunday: OFF

And a little workout inspiration from my gym:

    yum blue bottle and IPA (I assume?)

    Also, going back to your post from last week regarding music. Obviously I need bar exam study music.

      Haha yes. Always IPA. I tried some new ones I need to get on the blog!

      And yes I’m SURE bar exam study music is key. Try a little tiesto!
