It’s been a minute.

A New York minute.

Washington DC, I have a dream
I’ve had such a wonderful vacation! My dad and I went to my all time favorite place on this planet, New York. We stayed at the same hotel as we always do because why change something that is perfect, right? I went to my first ever baseball game. New York Yankees vs San Francisco Giants. And even though I didn’t really understand the sport that much it was still fun to have seen. Another thing that was a first timer for me this year was going to Washington DC. This vacation has been perfect. The warm warm weather, all the Central Park lunches, Subway fun, all the walking, all the things we’ve done a thousand times before, all the things we did for the first time this year, everything! I love New York so much.

I figured a quick little recap of my vacation would be the perfect first blog post of my new routine of getting more into blogging (like I’ve mentioned earlier – 3 times a week). I’m back from vacation now, feeling extremely motivated and I’m ready to get back into the best shape of my life!

Did you visit any fun places this summer?

Short run-week recap.

Three times a week‘ she said, ‘being consistent‘ she said. It’s still a work in progress.
10juli16-2
Take a quick look at the photo below – this is what my week has looked like. Not a great run-week for me.. I’ve been so stressed out all week, I need to stop making too many plans at the same time. You see this mirrored in my runs. Being stressed and tired doesn’t  The run I’m the most happy with this week is the short 3.02 km run I did with my mom on Friday. Which is a little weird to me, because normally I’m not happy with a run unless it’s at least ‘so and so’ long. The reason I’m so happy with our short run is because Friday was a day where I really didn’t want to go out and run. I felt so *in lack of a better word* blah. Just blah and gross. I checked the app I’m using to track my runs and decided to take a look at the challenge of the month. My mom and I have been doing this fun little motivation thing for 2 months now; we have a challenge on who can run the most km in a month (the app let you make your own fitness challenges and challenge whoever you want). Anyway, I checked out our challenge page and realized I was only 2 km away from reaching 100 km this month and I automatically needed to reach at least those 100 km. Even though I now knew I was going to run I still struggled to get out the door. We’ve all been there, right? Haha! That’s when I asked my mom if she would help me get through this super short run. She came with me and that’s how I was able to do that run.
This weeks runs
It’s nice to feel happy with a run for other reasons than just the distance or time. But trust and believe, once I’m back from my vacation I’ll be chasing times again and train harder than ever before.

Today it’s only one week left until my dad and I are going to New York again. I am so excited! It’s my favorite place on earth, it’s a place that calms me and makes me happy. New York inspires me. I love it so much! To me traveling makes it easier to organize my thoughts and forget about stupid and stressful things that doesn’t really matter. It’s almost like a cleanse. Now I’m rambling, haha! I hope everyone has had a great week! Good night.

What are you doing this summer?
Do you make “post vacation workout plans” before going too?

Sausalito, Japantown & Night bus to Treasure Island

SanFranDay2-top
So much for being good at blogging here in San Francisco and writing every single day, haha! I really want to try to write about every day here, so this is how I’ll do it, I’ll just have to write about each day whenever I have time. This is the post for Tuesday, July 14th, Day 2 in San Francisco.
SanFranDay2
We jumped on the tourist bus to get over to the other side of Golden Gate Bridge.
SanFranDay2-2
I didn’t mind seeing all these places again, I spottet a bunch of things I didn’t see the first time.
SanFranDay2-3
When we got to the other side of Golden Gate Bridge we got on another bus that would take us to Sausalito.
SanFranDay2-11
Before we went to Sausalito the bus driver stopped at Fort Baker so people could take some nice photos of the bridge. She took this photo of me and my dad.
SanFranDay2-4
Sausalito was a nice little place. Didn’t spend a lot of time there, we knew we were going to go back there the day we were going to run over the Golden Gate Bridge, so we saved the exploring of this place for that day.
SanFranDay2-5
After Sausolito we went back to San Francisco and decided to start walking towards Japantown. On the way there I spotted my dream house. Isn’t it just perfect? The people who live here are so lucky!
SanFranDay2-6
Japantown was great!
SanFranDay2-7
I bought a bunch of cute little Japanese things, haha. After Japantown we went back to the hotel for a quick stop before we headed out again for Fisherman’s Wharf to take the night bus tour.
SanFranDay2-8
The night bus tour was great. We drove around and got to see a bunch of places they didn’t show us on the day time ride.
SanFranDay2-9
By the end of the ride they drove over to Treasure Island. By now I was way too cold to care, but it was still very nice. Too bad there was so much fog, we weren’t able to see the Golden Gate Bridge.
SanFranDay2-10
We ended our day with a late pizza dinner. I was so cold after the bus ride it was nice to get something warm to eat. I also ordered hot chocolate because I needed something warm to drink before we got our food – the waitress looked at me like I was crazy haha. I get it though, who orders hot chocolate with pizza? I almost fell asleep at the table before we got our food, I was just so cold and tired. Had a couple slices and got the rest in a box to bring back to the hotel.
