Run, eat, swim, relax, repeat.

It's not even 9pm and I've already had a fantastic day. Kicked it off early this morning with a nice run on a 14-15 mile loop in the mountains and great company. EH and I have been ultrarunning pen pals of sorts for a while now. He was in town for the long weekend so we got together and shared some dust, sun, conversation, and ocean views. He's convincing/helping me to find a 50 miler or maybe even 100 miler to run. 100's are still too scary for now...


Next up was deliciousness from Tacos Por Favor. Then it was off to the beach for a few hours of waves, sand, and relaxation. The line of the day comes from the young ladies Nicole and I observed walking around the beach with a styrofoam cooler. They approached the group of guys next to us and opened with "Do you guys want to buy jello shots? It's to fight cancer." What? Turns out they were trying to raise money for a marathon race entry that cost like $1000 to enter or something like that...hence the $3 shots, or 2 for $5. Okay, well, pass.


Just finished up a nice dinner with Nicole including corn on the cob and a fat spinach salad with pears, blue cheese crumbles, apples, and cranberry walnut dressing. Now time for an evening stroll with the dogs. Hope everyone had a nice weekend. Bye now.

Hey Man, I'm thinking about the 50 early next year, but 100? Not just yet...
