Saturday morning was a lazy one. The boys went riding and I went for a short run around the Cay and then hung out with Sue. Saturday afternoon she introduced me to the shopping wonder that is T.J. Maxx. Oh my. It's like Winners on steroids. We spent 4 hours in there. 4 HOURS. I tried on no less than 30 pieces of clothing. I kid you not. I guess my love of endurance events carries over to shopping as well. It was well worth it as I scored a bunch of great things, my favourite being a dress that just so happened to match the awesome shoes I bought the day before.
Sunday was our busiest day. We got up very early so the boys could hit the road for a ride and I could get a long-ish run in before G & I headed off to Alcatraz and Pier 39. Gary dropped me off at a rec centre in the middle of a gorgeous town called Mill Valley. The boys were going to climb up to the Headlands and I was going to run the trail into Sausalito. It was a very warm morning, even at 7:30 am and I was wishing I wore my tank top. The run was lovely. I kept seeing a blimp circling the bay in the distance and I figured it was aerial coverage for the 100th annual Bay To Breakers race, which is something that I've always wanted to do. Had I been thinking I would have actually checked to see if the race was sold out before we left. But alas, I wasn't thinking and as I found out later on that morning, it wasn't sold out so I could very well have run it. It would have been the perfect taper run. Running 12km across the bottom of San Francisco in a sea of 50,000 runners, most of which are dressed in costume. How much fun would that have been? It just means we'll have to go back again. I'm sure I won't have a problem convincing Gary to do that. There is still so much left to explore there!
For now, this little jet-setter is done traveling for a while. At least until November when we head to New York. I think I've gotten over my jet lag so I'll lace up my shoes tonight and go for a run. The view won't be the same but that's ok, I think I'll live.
