Yes, yes, I am drunk again (i.e. yet another lame post). We’ve been so busy and carrying so much stuff, and tasting so many things that my pictures are pretty weak. It’s funny that my worst blog posts are coming from a blogging event! Also, disclaimer – I do not have a ton of time, I apoligize profusely for not linking in this post!
I dragged myself out of bed at 6:30 this morning and met up with a group of runners to hit the piers.
I actually jogged the mile over from my hotel first to met them at theirs. Everyone is so friendly and nice and I was beyond happy to be able to keep up…..until I couldn’t! I ran 1.87miles with the group before I thought I’d die and I stopped to walk. Brittany was super sweet and walked with me (I guesstimate about 2+miles?) around the piers. We stopped by the sea lions which was pretty thrilling.
I ended up running back to my hotel too (more than a mile because I got a little lost) so I actually got in a pretty good work out!
After a quick shower Camile and I headed back to the ferry building for the first event. There was a farmer’s market on and it was so gorgeous.
I had a few small samples,
and I had to buy a diet coke ($1.25) because I was super thirsty.
Then we went to an olive oil tasting class, which was super informative.
And then a large group of us headed to the “tasting pavillion” which was almost like a food expo. We got to watch Brandi cook her winning recipe.
So.Many.Samples!!! I had lots of good eats. Again, about 95% is shown.
The Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer people rocked my socks, I totally got my own can!
Camile and I left early and I spread my swag out on the bed and did my evil genius laugh.
All my swag in total –
We walked to FedEx and my swag package weighed 16lbs! Now we have showers, and then a walk back to the other hotel before we are bussed to a fancy dinner. I can’t wait!
