Hubby and I got out of town - just the 2 of us (very exciting). We spent 3 days in San Francisco. The weather was -- fantastic! Usually it's foggy and cold, but we had 3 gorgeous, sunny days - what a treat!
We spent our days walking, riding the trolley car, eating, and looking at art that we can't afford!! It was lots of fun!
|At the end of the line, the conductors actually turn the cars by hand!|
|This one pushed with his back - not sure which one is easier?|
|I dreamed about steamed crab all the way to SF!|
|It's practically a crime not to get ice cream at Ghirardelli!|
But the best part, (don't tell this to hubby) was running on the Golden Gate Bridge!!
|This foggy morning quickly turned sunny!|
I absolutely love running out of town. Monterey is my favorite place to run. I can put in 4 miles right along Fisherman's Wharf and the ocean - love it! I've walked the bridge before, but running it was fun...kinda! Just the idea was exciting - running above the ocean.
|My shoes have more than 400 miles on them! (Yes, I know, I do need a new pair!) And no, that's not blood on the ground - they were painting the bridge!|
But the reality is...trucks and cars skidding past you at 50 miles an hour...5 feet away from you...and exhaust...lots of exhaust...
The bridge is almost 4 miles round trip, and it has a gentle slope that I didn't really notice until I had to turn around and run the incline...gentle slopes are killers I tell you!!
So, tell me...do you run when you're on vacation? What are your favorite out of town trails?
Thanks for stopping by today!!
