It was a lovely weekend. A real cracker of one!
Friday! Wedding Day!
On Friday, we went to the wedding of two British friends who tied the knot at City Hall in San Francisco. I love weddings!
Run Day! Hike Day! Laughter Day!
Let’s talk running first. Too much food, two glasses of wine, too little sleep and some hot temperatures at 7am. Not much fun. I nearly bailed about three times on this run, but SF is too close for bailing, so I plodded on. It struck me that I’m a bit fed up with two hour runs. I know plenty of people run much further than I do…but I’ve had enough of them for a while. So I got home, reworked my training schedule until SF on June 16th and then, after that, I’m having a whole week off! Already feeling better! But anyway…12.5 miles in 1.55.04 at a 9.12 pace. Respectable but not going to get me a PR! Hrmph!
So to celebrate my tired legs, we went hiking in Wunderlich Park. It is GORGEOUS…wide, shady trails that cry out for stroller trail running!! And two special moments. The first was stumbling across an unexpected Redwood Grove that was unbelievably peaceful and beautiful. I’ve heard Redwood groves described as being like cathedrals – today I totally understood that idea. And the second was startling a young stag and us all standing still, eyes locked, for a few moments. Magical!
And then…a friend’s birthday night in the city. Dinner and Comedy Club. I got home at 1am. Shattered but awesome!
And to finish…totally gratuitiously and nothing to do with running…may I present my son in his wedding attire.
Thanks for indulging me with that one 😉
