Friday Night Wining Leads to Saturday Morning Climbing
The past 24 hours have been a crazy mess of FUN!!! Let me back track a bit to Friday.
Friday was Bring Your Bike to School Day, and I got paid to ride my bike to the Frozen Yogurt shop with my students!!!
It’s about a one mile bike ride, and we even got escorted by police officers. I think their were about 50+ kids that participated, it was a fun and informative event!
Moving on to Friday night…
Hubby and I attended a Wine and Appetizer Party!! It was our first time having a wine tasting at a friends house. Our friends provided all the yummy appetizers, and everyone brought a bottle of their favorite wine to share. What a GREAT IDEA!!!
First go around of the appetizers; mini pizza, fruit, crescent roll with gouda cheese and some sourdough bread with tomato spread. It was all yummy!
I think the bread and hummus spreads were my favorite because I went back for seconds
thirds and forths. My first glass of wine, was a Bogle Vineyard Zinfandel. it was very smooth and quite tasty.
I also had a few sips of a couple more, because I had a 15 miler the next morning I just tasted and didn’t drink too much.
On the left I tried, Folie A Deux Menage A Trois White, it was good a little sweet I am not the biggest fan of white wines but I like it.
On the right is the Velvet Moon Cab; I thought their were hints of cinnamon but could not really get a real taste on what it reminded me of although It did remind me of something but I could not put my finger on it.
I was a bit sad that I couldn’t try more, but I didn't want to regret it in the morning.
This picture is funny, #1 you can’t see the wine glass in my hand, #2 you can see Hubby in the window:)
My last plate for the evening, loved the mini pizzas!
3:15am wake up call!!! Yes I know I am crazy, but we beat the heat and got done early. We ran 15 miles and it was a pretty good run. Besides the fact that we ran 7.5 miles straight UP HILL!!! Good thing it was dark I couldn’t tell as much. The only pain I had was in my left IT Band, but it was just a little pain.
After the run I tried something new, a Hammer Chocolate Chip Bar. It is a all natural, it has 220 calorie, 9 grams of protein, and pure goodness!!! It tasted a lot like a Larabar. It isn’t very low in fat, but well rounded; Fat 36.8%Carbs 47.3 Protein16.4% .

Since i finished my run by 6:30am, I was able to meet up with some friends from work at 6:45am for a Birthday hike!!!
A nice 5 mile hike, it was absolutely beautiful!!!
When we got to the top, their were boulders leading up to this giant white cross. It was an outside ampatheater. This was a perfect way to start a Saturday, Hubby and I will be back here soon!!!
We laid out a blanket and set out for a birthday picnic. Sandy was a great little organizer, she brought cheese and cracker, fruit, and cupcakes!
I had some fruit, and of course I had to have a cupcake!! After a 15 mile run+hike, I think I deserved it!
