Beach Vacation Day 3: Hot Run, Sun, Sand, Sushi & Sunsets

Hottest Run Ever
This morning we were up around 7 am. Guess going to bed by 9:30 will do that to you of course. We had started watching Breakfast at Tiffany's, but just couldn't stay awake.

So, up early, Jason decided he wanted to try to get out for a run with me after breakfast. So, we laced up the running shoes (I think it was a little after 8) and headed out for the hottest, most humid, heat index-of-100-degrees run I've ever done. Holy freaking crap. We made it about 4 miles before calling it quits.

I will say that it was nice to run up to the top of a bridge and look out over the inter coastal waterways. Now, getting to the top was a bit challenging of course. We also ran through a neighborhood/condo area we've never driven through. So running can be a nice way to really see a city. As long as it's not going to kill you of course. I did hit the elliptical for 5 minutes to sort of ease out my legs then I did abs from Cathe's High Reps DVD.

Sun, Sushi & Sunsets
After we got cleaned up - yes we had to clean up before going to the beach because we were that gross from the run - we packed up the cooler with lunch, snacks, and a few adult beverages (and tons of water) and headed down to the beach for the day.
We stayed on the beach from just after 10 am until about 2:45 before deciding to go get cleaned up. We had planned on having cocktails and sushi at this fun little place across from our condo called The Jelly Fish Bar. It had just opened up four years ago, when we first started staying in this condo. We're really glad it's been able to stay open. Not all beach restaurants make it. This place seems to have become a local fave though.
I knew I wanted the edamame and some wakame. I also ordered a cocktail I ordered last year. It's their signature cocktail, The Jellyfish. I must say, it was not the same at all. I looked back at last year's post even just to verify. And realized I hadn't even ordered the same cocktail because that one was no longer on the menu, but they were very very similar in descriptions.
 
 
 
So, I guess they did away with the Comb Jellyfish and just make a different one called The Jellyfish. It wasn't very good at all. I was really disappointed and ended up I letting Jason finish it for me. Do you ever just get your heart set on something you've had before? I didn't even want to order a different cocktail to be honest. All I wanted was that goodness I had last year ;-)

I ordered the vegetable roll and Jason got a volcano and a tuna roll. For me, the best part was still the wakame. Don't know what my obsession is with that stuff, but I love it.

Full, and lazy feeling, we spent the rest of the evening just sitting out on the balcony. It can be so much fun to people watch, as well as ocean watch.
 
 
 
The sunset was absolutely gorgeous last night. Everything had a beautiful pink hue.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.
