Hello and Happy President’s Day!
If you’re one of the lucky ones (like Matt), you have the day off from work today. We’ve been partying hardy all morning. And by party hardy, I mean we went for a run, ran some errands, and are now eating mac ‘n’ cheese for lunch. #PartyAnimals
Around 7:30 this morning, we headed out to a lake that has a 5-mile loop around it. Matt was doing a timed run to practice for a race he has coming up, while I did my own thing quite a ways behind him. HOWEVER, I did run the 5 miles at an average pace of 8:30. I’m MORE than okay with that. Haven’t seen that low of a pace in quite awhile.
Speaking of being fit and stuff…we went on a little fitness adventure on Saturday.
Rock climbing! The only pictures we have are from what the real climbers call “bouldering”—when you free-climb shorter walls with lots of padding below. I enjoyed this more because I didn’t hit panic mode because of the height, which kept happening on the real rock climbing walls. Apparently I’m much more scared of heights than I thought. Not. Cool.
We spent the first half of Saturday at the indoor rock climbing place, and our forearms were on fire from gripping the rocks. I mean [day-um]. I was quite partial to my chalk pouch, and somehow it ended up all over me. Fear of heights = sweaty hands for this girl. TMI? It happens.
Afterwards, we headed to Green Flash Brewery. This was the first brewery I had ever been too, so I thought it was pretty cool. We had just missed the tour when we got there, so that was sad. It was still fun to go there and hang out, though, especially since San Diego is such a huge craft beer area, and I see Green Flash beer everywhere.
Have you ever been rock climbing?
I went when I was like 12 at summer camp but haven’t done it since. I don’t remember it being so scary. Perhaps I’m just a big wimp now…
Are you a beer lover or hater?
I used to be a hardcore hater, but now I love trying new brews!
