If you follow me on Instagram then you know that Preston and I were in Seattle for 4.5 days. We left early Thursday afternoon to drive to Philly to catch our evening flight to Seattle, and flew back to Philly yesterday. After spending the evening with Preston’s family, we arrived back home just after midnight last night. It was a bit of an exhausting trip, especially given that I’m 18 weeks pregnant, but I’m so glad that we were able to head to Seattle, the highlight of which was the wedding of two of my college friends Friday evening.
While in Seattle, we spent quite a bit of time catching up with my college friends, as well as doing some sightseeing. My favorite area of the city was Pike Place Market. I could have spent all day there checking out the farmers market shops and watching the flying fish. It was such a beautiful place to visit!
Despite being out of town, I did still complete my long run on Sunday. Preston and I enjoyed running along Elliott Bay during our 5.75 mile run, followed by an almost 1 mile cool down walk. In addition to our long run, we spent quite a bit of time while in Seattle walking around the city. Walking was our main form of transportation, which while exhausting was certainly the best way to see the city.
The past two weeks haven’t been ideal in terms of my training. Between a busy bridal weekend a week and a half ago for one friend’s wedding and traveling to Seattle this past week, my schedule has been anything but normal. I look forward to getting back on track with my usual training for the remainder of this week. Its hard to believe that there’s only 5.5 weeks left until Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach!
