I have resurfaced. This weekend is non-stop! I’m not sure where I left off yesterday but last night was nothing too exciting. I ate a veggie burger and a pear, turned off my phone and hit the sack super early because my alarm was set for 5:30 this morning for my race!
I might have had a fashion show or two for Dexter, as well, trying to pick out a dress for tonight’s Pigs & Pinot Gala Dinner. 😉
The verdict is still out.
This morning I ate a slice of peanut butter toast with half a banana and then high-tailed it to Napa to meet my friend Michaela for the Carneros Vineyard Run
! It was FREEZING!!!!!!!
1000 is a lucky number, right??! The run actually went REALLY well. Like, much better than anticipated. The course was more challenging and hillier than anything I’ve ever ran before but I felt really strong and good. The only problem was the MASSIVE hill right before the finish line. I’m used to running where its nice and flat and this was a rude awakening. I stopped and walked for like 15 seconds and then saw lots of highly attractive firefighters standing around and repeated the “bloody mary and donut!” mantra in my head until I was at the top. At the top of the hill though you could see the mountains and the ocean….it was so gorgeous!
I finished in 28:10, which I was really happy about. My PR is 25:30 but that’s on a nice flat street in sunny, warm Florida. I’ll take 28:10 here. 😉
I think Napa might be the only place on earth where right after a race, there’s a wine tasting. Totally normal.
I grabbed half a banana, an orange slice and some coffee while I waited for Michaela, who was running the 10K. There was a pancake breakfast going on but we had already made other plans…..
Oh, and warm donuts dipped in chocolate sauce!!!!!! (I ate a ridiculous amount of amazing food)
I ordered the eggs in a hole with a side of chicken apple sausage. It was deeeeeelicious!
I was SO FULL. As in, brunch occurred around 11:15 and it’s 3:30 and I still haven’t had anything else to eat. I think I’m going to make a light snack though….I want to save room for dinner tonight!
Uhhhh yeah, there will a lot of delicious food and wine consumed tonight. Its going to be pretty out of control. I guess I should probably take a shower or something. 😉
