Weekend Update: Vancouver Weekend in Pictures

Whew! I’m still exhausted from an incredibly fun and active birthday weekend with my husband and friends in Vancouver, BC.  I don’t know what took more out of me–running the SeaWheeze Half Marathon or eating too much.

IMG_4440.JPGBecause I’m still dealing with a serious birthday “hangover,” for now I’m just going to tell the weekend’s stories with photos. But please check back soon for my SeaWheeze race recap!

IMG_4413.JPGMy favorite restaurant in Vancouver? La Quercia. 11-course tasting menu = perfection.

IMG_4436.JPGGranville Island Market. Love.


IMG_4449.JPGThere is such a thing as too much downward dog.


IMG_4513.JPGOiselle Flock meet-up! So much fun meeting these ladies (from the left: Kaleigh, me, Victoria, Ange, and Marilyn).
Thanks for the photo, Marilyn & Travis!


IMG_4512.JPGMore posing–this time with my bestie since 7th grade, good friend/running partner/therapist Aimee, and my friend Casey.


IMG_4452.JPGEven the husbands wanted to pose. Oh–and matching shorts rawk.


IMG_4475.JPGIt was his first completed half marathon, and he was sore.


IMG_4489.JPGNo rest for the weary–time to celebrate some old lady’s birthday! Love these girls.


IMG_4491.JPGStill kinda’ pissed nobody bought me the $425 cocktail at the Fairmont.
What! It’s a good deal!


IMG_4510.JPGGood friends make for a great weekend. Capped our time in Vancouver with a gut-busting family style dinner at La Buca.


IMG_4511.JPG… And the sun sets on my birthday.


 I’m linking up again today with my girl, Tara, at Running ‘n’ Reading. Please be sure to check out her terrific blog.

    • Yes–11 courses and for only $70 CAD per person. An incredible value considering the quality of ingredients and execution. The second course was an heirloom tomato bruschetta with Dungeness crab–simple, right? It was hands down one of the best things I’ve eaten in the last year.

  1. Molly, I LOVE these pictures! I so dig that you are “hungover” from your birthday…I hope that I’m hungover after my big 4-0 next summer! 🙂 I’m so happy that it was a good one, and that you did such AMAZING things! Can’t wait for your race recap, too…love the pic of your hubby after his race. I think they are such wimps – ha! Thanks for linking up today!

    For 425$ that cocktail better get you drunk for the next 365 days 🙂
    Can’t wait to hear all about seawheeze!
