Irene Visits

by Sarah on October 21, 2014

This past weekend Jay’s sister, Irene, came to visit and run in the Baltimore Running Festival with us. More on the race Thursday!


Besides running, we made sure Irene experienced some Baltimore classics. This included lunch at Papermoon Diner,


and a hike up to Federal Hill from my parents new house.


Of course we also let Irene choose a few activities, which included a visit to the Tyson’s REI and the L.L.Bean store. Our shopping trips were much needed as I realized I have worn the same outfit to the last three Baltimore Running Festival’s that I have run. Yeah my new spandex will be making an appearance at the Philly Marathon in November.


Do you have a preferred race outfit?

San Francisco: Four Hour Tour

September 25, 2014

While we were on the west coast for a wedding, we took some time to sightsee. Besides our time in Napa and Sonoma, we also went on two three hour tours of San Francisco. You may ask yourself why did we do the same tour twice? Quite simply because we had time to kill before […]

Napa and Sonoma

September 23, 2014

Earlier this month, Jay and I headed out to San Francisco for a friend’s wedding. Since flying across the country can be an ordeal, we decided to fly out a few days early and explore Napa and Sonoma with our college friend, Nancy. We coordinated our flights to arrive around noon, picked up the rental […]
