Week Wrap-Up

Some odds and ends:

First off, at the expo last weekend I was able to pick up two skirts from that I had exchanged.  I got the pinkalicious-sunset and aquatreuse skirts.  So cute!  I promised some people a photo so below is the pink-orange one:

When my parents were in town we took a trip to Sonoma to visit Viansa.  I think Mario would have thought he had died and gone to heaven if he ever found himself in a vineyard!  The last time I was in Napa for the marathon, there weren't even green leaves on the grape vines.  So to actually see some grapes this time was a real treat.

Today Boyfriend and I went to see an Air Show which featured the Blue Angels perform over the Bay.  Pretty darn impressive!  They even flew under the Golden Gate Bridge which would have totally freaked me out if I had been driving over it!  Hopefully there weren't any fender benders.  The weather was beautiful today and it was a lot of fun to hang out at Crissy Field.  

I went on a 4.5 mi run Friday.  A very hard fought 4.5 miles.  My endurance is way, way down.  I'm pretty sure I'll have to follow a similar strategy next Sunday as I did in San Jose.  That's fine with me.  The Nike race was always going to be a fun training run.  I'm hoping to get a 6 miler in tomorrow and will do another quick 2-3 miler before the race.

That's such a cute skirt! I love the 2 running girls at the bottom :D

Yohji would go crazy too, if he finds himself in the vineyard! Buttons isn't fond of grapes.. and Hans, he doesn't eat greens or fruits, lol!

Good luck on the 6 miler! Hopefully it's easier after your 4.5 mile practice :)

We caught the airshow down here in San Diego two weekends ago. It was pretty fun!

The nice thing about endurance being down... is that it comes back just as fast as you lost it... or faster in some cases.

Have fun and good luck!

Yup, my bunnies are CRAZY about grapes. That is a cool skirt, too. The cuter the skirt, the happier the shins, I'm sure I read that somewhere......

Very cute skirt! And what a gorgeous blue sky S.F. day you had for the air show. Perfect for watching those aerial maneuvers. I'm shocked they would fly under the GG Bridge, though!
