Backpacking to Surprise Lake - Grand Teton National Park 7/17/17

Backpacking to Surprise Lake - Grand Teton National Park
Hubby planned our backpacking trip at Teton National Park. He had heard good things about Surprise Lake so he reserved the permits online ahead of time on the National Park Service website here. There are only 3 sites for camping so it is best to reserve early. We were excited to get up in the mountains. It is a nice climb to the to the lake and we even ventured to another lake (Amphitheater Lake). The kiddos did amazing!

CIM Marathon Training Week 3 & Weekly Wrap: 8/7-8/13

Week 3 of CIM marathon training is in the books and it was a decent one. I got in all my scheduled runs but unfortunately no workouts with the girls due to the boys soccer camp all week. Also no long run this week due to our fun adventure in Lassen Volcanic National Park over the weekend!

Here's a recap of what I did last week following Coach Dawn's plan:

CIM Marathon Training Week 2 & Weekly Wrap: 7/31-8/6

Week 2 of CIM marathon training is in the books and so far so good. I got in all my runs and did some good cross training with the girls. I'm loving the variety of exercises we are doing. It was also a good weekend as we ventured to the coast to explore Point Reyes.

Here's a recap of what I did last week following Coach Dawn's plan:

Bodega Bay Trail Hike 7/1/17

Bodega Head Trail Hike 7/1/17
Bodega Head trail hike was added to our day trip one weekend. Hubby had been wanting to visit Russian River Brewing Company  to check out their beer. He's a fan of Pliny and wanted to get some growlers to take home. It was actually neat to check out the town of Santa Rosa and have lunch there. Russian River is about halfway to the coast and we knew we wanted to check out the coast, so we decided on Bodega Bay. We saw the Bodega Head trail hike online and decided to check it out.
