Having a couple days to explore before we needed to be in Bordeaux for the race, we decided to visit Versailles. Yes, this is an easy day trip from Paris, but wanting to relax before the marathon, we decided to stay in Versailles, which also gave us a chance to explore more of the grounds without worrying about trains. We chose the Trianon Palace Versailles to rest our heads, which happens to have a two Michelin Starred restaurant–Gordon Ramsay–we couldn’t pass up.
After a brief interlude in the British Airlines Terraces Lounge where I gorged on cheese and mini sandwiches, we boarded our flight to London. I normally hang out at the Alaska Boardroom lounge but since Terraces was directly next to our gate, we visited to see the mountain out the windows. (more…)
After a couple years of no falls, my count has reset: zero days since last fall. I won’t show you the nasty oozy bloody cut under the bandage, but it’s bad. I also hurt my ankle and my shoulder….but mostly I will be super sexy in Paris with scabby knees! This is what happens when you are thinking about food while running in Ballard. Stupid broken sidewalks with rocks embedded in cement.
The Road to Medoc is coming to an end very soon. Welp! I leave for France in just a few days for a wine and run adventure like no other (and if you know of another, let me know!).
After the last WordPress update, I could no longer log in to my page…the admin and login page both returned the dreaded White Screen of Death! Alas, not a single one of the 226 articles with solutions worked. I had to reinstall wordpress on a different subdomain, export/import the sql database data, and then go through and fix all the broken stuff manually. It’s working.
Last Saturday was the Seattle Rock n Roll Marathon. I’m not sure whose idea it was to run a full marathon so early in the season, but we did it! And despite a horrible cough, lackluster training, and general unpreparedness, the marathon wasn’t so bad. We oddly met my original goal of being on my feet for 6 and 1/2 hours without even trying.
