Happy Friday! I’ve got a few things to share from our first day in California.

We did the second half of the drive yesterday morning and stopped along the way for Panera because we don’t have one where we live.

We may have gone a little overboard…  when in Rome (Disneyland).

He has never been to California Adventure so we are going to be quite busy today riding every ride possible today.

This sounds crazy, and I don’t know if I am looking forward to it or not, but my girls and I are shaving pigs this weekend in preparation for a pig show. It’s kind of fun trying to shave 250 pound pigs!

I need to do a 9-10 mile run to prepare for my upcoming half.

I’ve never been to Disney =(

My sister and her girls are coming for a visit this weekend. So happy to see them!

So… I did my long run this morning! 12 miles, another negative split. I am finally learning how to not go out too fast. My last mile was my fastest and I then had nothing left.

We were at California Adventure in May – go to Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, get something sweet and gooey and sit outside and people watch! My favorite thing is watching parents with little ones. “Calm down, right now!” Really, you brought your child to Disneyland and expect them to be calm?? LOL!!

Not going to lie — the suspense is killing me. This guy seems great! When do we get to “meet” him?!! Haha

Love Disney (never been to the one in California)! I have long run #4 of NYC training coming up this Sunday. Have fun at Disney!

DCA has great food-Carthay Circle is amazing for sit down service, Lucky Fortune Cookery, Paradise Gardens and Cozy Cones for snacks and quick service meals

What a fun trip! I have not been to California adventure either- I’ll have to wait until my little guy is old enough to go :)

Reply

How fun! Looks like you have a great guy on your hands — seems he gave you the bigger “half” of the cookie ;)
I’m racing a 5k tomorrow, and then relaxing all weekend. Both the hubs and I will be home (which is rare these days), so we’re going to enjoy some quality time together.
I went to Disneyland years ago and couldn’t get enough of the Indiana Jones ride.
Have a great weekend!

Welcome to CA! If you are in Pasadena come and do a long run with me. I am doing 18 on Saturday! I always need a running partner.

Sorry J, adding teriyaki sauce and pineapple…a hawaiian bbq sandwich, does not make ;)

Yay for the Santa Monica Pier! My husband and I went a few years ago. It’s so beautiful and so much fun!

So glad you had fun in my home city (Santa Monica!!) It was such a beautiful day here today! It’s so hard to pick a favorite ride at DL – I love everything! I love the Cars ride at CA Adventure. Have fun!!
