Good weekend morning to you all!
I hope everyone had a nice Friday night out there. Chris and I grabbed some nice Japanese from a place around the corner. I had a spicy udon noodle bowl while sipping on a spicy ginger limeade (lemon, lime and cayenne pepper). Can you tell I was trying to open up the old sinuses? Well, it kinda worked, hooray!
This morning started off with a nice run. It was a chilly morning here in San Francisco (chilly but sunny clear skies, perfect almost winter day!) so I decided it would be a good chance to try out my new things from yesterday! I suited up, laced up and headed out with the intention of just going until I felt uncomfortable (still not feeling quite up to scratch).
I ended up doing about 2.7 miles (my run keeper stopped working after 1 mile). I actually felt surprisingly good and strong which was nice, although by the end my sinuses were pounding almost out of my head. More cayenne!
When I got to my turn around point at AT&T park, there was a lot of commotion and police cars around. I looked around and started to see people in all kinds of crazy costumes! I was thinking ‘what in the worllldddd?’ and then I saw this…
Then I had one of those “ohhhhhh” moments when I remembered that the Red Bull Flugtag is in town today! How exciting!! Their first flight is at 1pm today, so I think it will definitely be worth a look. Judging by the look of some of the contraptions, they definitely will not be flying which will make for some awesome spectating!
I was so so happy with my new Mizuno Wave Inspire 8’s. They were lightweight but had enough support around my ankles which I really need. Stoked with those bad boys.
When I returned from my run, I was in the mood for one thing and one thing only for breakfast today. Pancake Saturday! It’s all about balance right??
I used some Bob’s Red Mill Wholegrain Buttermilk Pancake Mix and set Chris and I up with a nice pancake station.
While I usually opt for the standard butter and syrup pancake topper, I like to have options! My favourite for today was the nutella/sliced banana topping. Yummmm delish!
Now that the dishes are done and the pancakes are sitting happily in my belly, I’m off to shower because I smell like a foot. Plans for today include some flugtag watching and a farewell for our buddy Pete out at the beach.
Happy Saturday everyone!
