A fun weekend with friends and now I’m beat!
Sun showers and a double rainbow to end Monday…is it the weekend yet?
SF half marathon! We arrived at the start line when it was dark and it was nice to the sunrise.
Post race brunch. Not pictured: dessert!
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…..
Months ago I was alerted to the Ashtanga Yoga Confluence. If I attend I would have the chance to study with David Swenson again. I was fortunate enough to see him last year at a workshop and knowing that he was going to be at AYC was one more incentive to attend. I bit my tongue and paid the price; and now that I’ve attended I don’t regret a penny of it.
The conference featured the OG’s of yoga – so much wisdom, graciousness, and love….it couldn’t have been better. A bonus on top was being able to attend with friends from the SJ/Bay area.
Lots of food
Blue Star donuts: forget Voodoo Doughnuts and their longline, Blue Star is where it’s at!
Sour beers: so much fun to drink with friends. We’ve spent the last two weekends sampling sour beers, a new world to me! Cascade was a nice stop in Portland.
The Portland vibe: it was low-key, relaxed and interesting with exceptionally nice people!
