#24hoursinSeattle

7 May

Last weekend, we went up to Seattle. It was super fun but real quick….24 hours quick.ย  I mentioned in a past post that I was going to a Jasyoga workshop…well it was a teacher training. I wasn’t taking it to become a teacher but hoping that I would have a better sense of how to put together some “practices” for myself.

We drove up to Olympia Friday night and stayed with some friends. Finally got to meet the 9 month old Christopher.


We got to Seattle early enough to go to Top Pot Donuts. I know I know donuts before yoga. Dumb I know! But we are not in Seattle that often and they are delicious!!

Dan dropped me off and was going to pick me up 6 hours later!!

Jasyoga has a “mobile” studio so they do not have one of their own. They rented this space which was awesome.
I really enjoyed the workshop. Bree was awesome.
We talked a lot about balance. The yoga solution is: performance, injury prevention, and recovery. We went through practices, discussions, and critical thinking exercise for all the topics.

We didn’t practice as much as I would have liked. Definitely different than I expected but it was still interesting and I had fun. In other news, Erin(the founder) has just put out a bunch of new videos for balance and for runners so I’m pumped to practice some of those.

Dan picked me up and we headed to Green Lake where there is a 3 mile running loop.

He ran the warm up lap with me and then I was on my own with some hard work to do for the 2nd/3rd lap.

We had planned to head to the Oiselle store and head home but some friends happen to have a babysitter for the night so we went to dinner with them instead.

Super fun trip. We left early Sunday morning so I could come home and go for a bike ride. If anyone is wondering what Dan did in those 6 hours: I was pretty proud of him. He did a whole shit ton of tourist things. (I was actually kind of jealous) ๐Ÿ™‚

One last side note: We are still talking about the Top Pot donuts!!

    I guess we will have to put Top Pop on the list of things to try when in Seattle. How do they compare to VooDoo????

      Yes!! Top Pot is awesome…way better than Voodoo!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Now i’m not saying not to go to Voodoo (because you are literally staying right next door to Voodoo) you definitely should but they are very much just a donut! Just with funny toppings. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wish Seattle was within driving distance of Minneapolisโ€ฆ I just love that city! We’ll be there in June for a wedding, and I can’t wait! Will definitely hit up the donut spot ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you had a fun tripโ€ฆ the yoga clinic looked fantastic! Tell jasyoga to come here! Or, I’ll chat with some of my CorePower friends to see if they can put one on ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Look like a super fun 24-hours. Christopher is only 9 months old?!? He looks like a little man. SO cute!!! How does Top Pot Donuts compare to some of the donut shops in Portland? What is your favorite donut shop in Portland?

    • Leslie @ TriathleteTreats May 10, 2016 at 8:17 PM #

      Yes!!! I swear he has always looked like a little man!! so cute!!!
      Top Pot are amazing. Way better than the ones in Portland! My favorite…i’m not a huge donut person (surprisingly) I like Blue Star and I’ve been wanting to try Pip’s. Its the new donut place in town. ๐Ÿ™‚
