Ran to the State Capitol today

I’m writing this post a few days after my run (thanks to AT&T and their awful call center/tech support) but I finally have my internet back since moving last weekend. I love my new place downtown! I decided to go for a run to the State Capitol on Monday to take a break from unpacking.

Here is my route:

This is where the CIM marathon will end!! Front steps of the Capitol.

I walked around Capitol Park for a while before heading back home. It really is a beautiful park…I wonder if the people who work there enjoy it as much as I do, or if they take it for granted. As I was running I saw a lot of business men/women who seemed too busy to appreciate where they were. Which is understandable, but hopefully they get to enjoy their surroundings once in a while.

This was a really interesting statue I came upon. It is Father Junipero Serra standing over the State of California.

So, when I got back home I had to finish unpacking. The kids were no help at all, but they were still getting used to their new surroundings.

Oh, and here were 2 unexpected roommates. I was a little unhappy that I had to clean the apartment as I was moving in!

This wasn’t even everything!

After a looong weekend of unpacking my friend and I walked to a nearby pub and played trivia. And drank some beer, and had chips n’ gravy. Pretty damn yummy. I was a happy girl, as you can see by my plate 🙂

On Tuesday I had one of my short runs for the week, and possibly my only run 😦 I am still pretty sore from that run and it really sucks. My pace has been much quicker and that has been great, but maybe my body can’t handle that right now? I’ve decided to take a few days off and on my long run Sunday slow it down a little. No matter how hard that will be to do, I’ve gotta do it. I ran to the Capitol again and did a few laps around the park. The one thing that I don’t like about running downtown is the traffic lights & the light rail. I hate having to stop and wait!

Route for Tuesday’s run:

Marathon training – short run 4 miles by haleymg at Garmin Connect – Details.

One last thing…

Really sad about the outcome of last night’s game. But the A’s had an amazing season and it was super exciting to see my team doing so well!! Now it’s up to the Giants to keep the Bay in it!
