Love San Francisco

I love San Francisco!!!

I decided for my 34th birthday that I would run the RNR Inaugural San Francisco 1/2 marathon. I caught my flight down south last night. Had a fun evening catching up with my friends, Don and Alana. Had a great night sleep!

Today we had a leisurely morning. Went for a 2 mile “easy” run with an average pace of 9:22s! Then headed into the city.

Our first stop: PANCHO VILLA. My favorite mexican joint in the bay area. You always know it is good “mexican” food when there is a ton of mexicans eating there! 🙂 I had the super vegetarian burrito.

I have to carb-load right?!? Delicious!!

After eating lunch, we hit up one of my favorite ice cream shops: Bi-Rite!!!

So many flavors…How am I suppose to pick?

If you noticed, I had 3 scoops. (Again I am carb-loading) 🙂 It was ONLY a double but you can get 2-3 flavors. I had salted caramel, malted vanilla, and coffee toffee. Amazing. Never disappoints!

We walked over to Delores Park. Good views of the city. It was a nice day. Cloudy with sun breaks. No jacket. Awesome!!

We headed to the expo.

We hit up the Nuun booth.

Then I bought a pair of Hokas. They were not giving a discount but they were giving out SF Running Company hats. What a deal! HA!


I am super excited to try these shoes out. They are supposed to be better for recovery. I bet you are thinking…they are ugly?! Well you are right! But very comfortable. It will be fun to try them out next week!

I also picked up one of these bad boys.

I have done the distance! It is about time I put this magnet on my car. 🙂

Awesome first day! Excited for the next 2!!

Have you heard of Hokas?

What is your favorite US city?

    Have to say that Chicago has recently become my favorite U.S. city with Vegas coming in a close second… home sweet home 🙂 But San Francisco is easily in my top 5. Hope you’re having a GREAT birthday weekend!!! xoxo.
