Wow what a week…we literally went from one corner to the other and changed time zones repeatedly. My body is beyond confused and unfortunately still trying to adjust to not being on the ship. I was able to feel the ship moving and spent the first day curled up mostly on the bed trying not to hurl…but then I bought these lovely acupressure bracelets and though I look like I’m sporting handcuffs felt much better!
SEATTLE ROCK N ROLL
Here are a few more fun pics from the race!! See I was really feeling like a I rock star for the beginning and then well fake it til you make it at the finish.
SEATTLE SIGHT SEEING
David and I really thought the city was beautiful and enjoyed our time there. We spent about 4 hours hiking around post marathon and while I was sore it just seemed like hubs deserved it! Amusingly one of the places we stopped was a bookstore where I bought “Chi Running” and the girl said…”Umm pretty sure if I just ran a marathon the last thing I would buy is a book on running.” And right after that is was time for some amazing chocolate!!
PIKE’s Market…oh man I could have just bought everything here!!
Overall we loved Seattle. I think it is too cloudy for us sunshiners to live there, but what a pretty city. Of course I loved meeting so many bloggers too!! As you know I ran with Mel and Marlene, but there was a great bloggy dinner the night before the race organized by Mel and then I had brunch with Sarah!!
Unfortunately something happened at the end of our trip that left me in tears and really put a damper on my Alaskan vacation. More on that later as I am still working it out in my own head.
Alaska recap to come soon…I’ll keep it short I promise!
