San Francisco

I just got back from my trip to San Francisco for work training.  The weather was perfect (even though I spent 75% of the time inside) and I had a great weekend.  The work training was actually extremely beneficial and I got a lot out of it. I was also able to get in a few runs and spent last night in the city.

Friday morning I got in my long run, 8.8 miles at a 7:25 pace, and a shorter run this morning, 5 miles at a 7:35 pace.  Both runs were out-and-backs along the San Francisco Bay Trail.
longrunI felt great…. I love running at sea level!  I didn’t even know I was running hard and just was caught up in the scenery, sun, and warm temperatures.
SF_BayTrail Friday night was a work dinner at the hotel, but Saturday I was able to head into the city after training let out.  I took the BART train into the city and met up with my brother-in-law who is going to school at San Francisco State University and the in-laws who were in town visiting Matt. 
SF_Baybridge We had a great dinner at the EPIC Roasthouse (which was adjacent to the Bay Bridge) and it was great to see everyone.  I ordered a whole fish that was brick oven grilled.  They de-boned it for me right at the table and it was DELICIOUS!   We also all ordered dessert and it was soooo good.

San Francisco is a great city and I can’t wait to go back for a longer visit!

Looks lovely. I'm actively lobbying for a family trip to the Bay Area this spring :)

I think the Bay Area would be fun for kids too, esp all there is to see and do. How much fun would kids have riding a trolley?!
