Sacramento Santa Run 5K Race Recap
I am finally recapping the Sacramento Santa Run 5K I did on the 19th with the fam today for you. It was our first run in Sacramento and it was a fun one! It was a perfect first race for the kiddos and I'm very proud of both of them.

Davis Stampede Half Marathon Training Week 1 & Weekly Wrap 12/21/-12/27

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This week started my half marathon training for the Davis Stampede half marathon in February. I took a look at the Hal Higdon Intermediate training plan I usually follow and it looks like I have 9 weeks until the Davis Stampede so I am starting at week 4 of his plan. I couldn't follow it so much this week with traveling to Utah to visit my mother-in-law's place for the holiday but I did what I could.

Here's a recap of last week's workouts

Fun Day Trip Part 2: Mt. Tamalpais Lookout and the Golden Gate Bridge

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm bringing you part 2 of our fun day trip a couple of weeks ago. We hiked up to the Mt. Tamalpais lookout and visited the Golden Gate Bridge. Both places are destinations you don't want to miss if you're in the area.

Fun day trip Part 1: Muir Woods National Monument & Muir Beach Overlook

With no plans on Saturday and knowing the weather was supposed to be decent, we headed out for a day trip to Muir Woods. Our only plan was to check the park out and go on a hike (we weren't even sure which hike yet). We ended up going there and also checking out Mt. Tamalpais and later the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a fun day of exploring! We saw so much in one day that I am going to divide the day in parts. This post will be part 1: Muir Woods National Monument & Muir Beach Overlook.

Last Week's Workouts and Weekly Wrap 12/7-12/13

This was probably the lowest mileage week I've had in a long time. Only 6 miles of running total for the week. When 6 year old got sick last Sunday it lingered and eventually I got sick. Wednesday was the day it hit me and I ended up with a fever, my body was achy, and I was just tired the whole day. I was in bed most of the day but still managed to feed the kiddos lunch while thankfully Hubby made dinner. I woke up Thursday a WHOLE lot better and was relieved that the fever went away. 

Here's a recap of last week's workouts:

Hiking Crystal Cove State Park - El Moro Ridge Trail Loop

While visiting my sister-in-law and family in Southern California for Thanksgiving we did manage do a pretty cool hike at Crystal Cove State Park. We hiked the Moro Ridge Trail and did a loop back on the Moro Canyon trail. There were some nice climbs and great views.
