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.
Because 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!
Stuck halfway between the US and Canada.
My favorite restaurant in Vancouver? La Quercia. 11-course tasting menu = perfection.
SeaWheeze packet pick-up/nightclub/wannabe Cirque du Soleil performance.
Chalkboard art in the lobby of our hotel, the Hyatt Regency Vancouver.
Granville Island Market. Love.
There is such a thing as too much downward dog.
Oiselle Flock meet-up! So much fun meeting these ladies (from the left: Kaleigh, me, Victoria, Ange, and Marilyn).
Thanks for the photo, Marilyn & Travis!
More posing–this time with my bestie since 7th grade, good friend/running partner/therapist Aimee, and my friend Casey.
Even the husbands wanted to pose. Oh–and matching shorts rawk.
It was his first completed half marathon, and he was sore.
No rest for the weary–time to celebrate some old lady’s birthday! Love these girls.
Still kinda’ pissed nobody bought me the $425 cocktail at the Fairmont.
What! It’s a good deal!
Good friends make for a great weekend. Capped our time in Vancouver with a gut-busting family style dinner at La Buca.
… 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.
Oh–and one more thing: have a great Monday!
What was the best thing you did this past weekend? Have you ever been to Vancouver?
