and the living’s easy.
Weekend fails….in the best sense. Sometime fails can turn out to be better than what was planned!
Fail #1: trying to run 10 miles, only to run into a non-stop downpour .5 miles in.
Fail #2: My Christmas present to Kyle: Tailgate + Warriors game. 1. There was no tailgate…..that is not the Nebraska way! 2. None of the star players were playing…
Wins: It finally stopped raining!?!
Pacing under a bridge for 30+ minutes, waiting for the downpour to end. I’ve never felt more troll-like in my life….
Turn up in the Oracle
Is the sunshine back for good? Just waiting on the warm temps too…..
Afternoon run on the Guadalupe Trail. Only a few more weeks before the half. My first thought on the trail was “I can’t wait to walk this trail!” – ha!
108 sun salutations to welcome in the Spring season and especially relevant with starting a new job on Monday….
Some thoughtful things:
Mendoza: huge wine pours, blue skies and warm weather, great food…swoon!
SFO -> Mexico City -> Buenos Aires -> Iguazu Falls -> Cordoba -> Mendoza ->Buenos Aires->Mexico City -> SFO
Mexico City 1: a quick stop-over. Frida Kahlo’s house and her clothes…..swoon…
Buenos Aires: Saying there is a late night culture here is an understatement.
Iguazu Falls: Jungle-y! Lots of water. Prep for wine country.
Mendoza: Heaveni-sh. Ridiculous wine pours (in a good way).
Buenos Aires 2: Palermo! Such a hip area & wish we spent more time here.
Mexico City 2: Breakfast nachos!!!
Kyle and I took our sweet ride out for our first hike as San Jose residents. Sunday we headed to Grant County Park for what we thought was going to be a little hike. Turned out we didn’t do much research and for us novice hikers the 5 miler was more than enough.
It was a nice, sunny day, not too hot and thanks to the recent rains the views were green with plenty of wildflowers peaking out. A good time hanging out with the ‘cow-lifornians’!
I was lucky enough to be invited to my coworker’s house for Chinese New Year. I would describe the celebration as Christmas and Fourth of July mashed together and equal in celebration to both combined.
She is from Laozhou, an island in the Yangtze River. It was a real experience!
