This post was written from my phone so it was a bit difficult to format it but I’ll be back to normal blogging tomorrow, I missed you guys!
This trip worked out perfectly because I was already needing to take Brooke to California to see her dad and so it was very easy for me to meet up with my friends and head to Palm Springs together. Brooke and I flew into San Jose on Wednesday and Jess picked us up at the airport and we stayed at her house for a night. Brooke and I shopped, ate Italian food and rode bikes that day. We had a blast and then the next morning I took her to her dad’s house and then went to the airport with Jess and Kim. We all met in college and do a girls trip together every year or two. They are a blast to travel with!
We flew on Breeze airlines and so the tickets were ridiculously cheap. We used the Turo app to rent a car (also, so much cheaper than renting a car through a company) and drove to our hotel. We stayed at the Westin and it was a huge resort that had everything we needed- pools, a spa, waterslides, a great restaurant, bikes to use, tennis courts and we loved everything.
Now for some pictures.
The date shakes and avocado fries at the Ritz Carlton were heavenly.
As far as running goes, I got in three runs while we were in Palm Springs. We decided that for this trip we wanted to feel amazing when we got home (rather than needing a vacation to recover from vacation, ha) and we definitely accomplished that goal. Workouts, so much water, sleeping in, amazing food, laying by the pool and spa time.
Two of my runs were on the treadmill and one run was outside with Jess. It was just way too hot outside for our one run outside and Jess finished this Gatorade in two seconds when we finally got back to the hotel.
And so much pool time.
The best taco of my life was eaten when we went to downtown Palm Springs at La Bonita. The tortilla was just cheese!
We flew back to Northern California on Sunday morning and then Brooke’s dad dropped her off at the airport and we flew home. I felt like a new woman when I got home and so excited to get back to real life again!
Andrew gave these two the best fall break while we were away.
