We did it! Bay to Breakers is the oldest consecutively run foot race in the world…and we did it! All 7.5 miles of it. There were many costumes…and a lot of nudity…but we made it.
Now that I’m officially a Northern Californian, I figured it was time to start adopting some new outdoor hobbies and enjoying the surrounding areas. City life is great, but sometimes you just need to breakaway and get into nature. So…hiking it is! This was the Big Basin trail, which runs about 10.5 miles and took us about 4.5 hours to finish. Along the way we saw two waterfalls and were surrounded by redwoods which are hundreds of years old. But what really caught me off guard was the smell. The air was not only clean, but smelled of trees and moss and sunshine and everything natural and good. I can’t wait to head out for the next hiking adventure!
So I’ll admit that finding food out to eat is pretty tough on a limited diet – Mexican and Vietnamese seem to be safe choices if you avoid and sauces with sugar! We found this adorable little Pho place and decided to give it a go last week. They used thicker noodles than I’ve had in the past which was a new experience, and overall it was really delicious.

I’m obsessed with Mexican food. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas…they speak to my heart. If you find yourself in the Mission District of San Francisco, all you have to do it walk a few blocks and you’ll find a place. A place where english is secondary on the menu. A place where old mexican ladies are in the back arguing and stirring large pots that smell amazing. A place where Mecican Coke is a given.
