San Francisco, CA

I just got back from a week in sunny San Francisco. I’ve never been any farther west in the U.S. than St. Louis, so I went as west as I could go for this one! My best friend had moved there a few months back and I missed her terribly. We had a great time and I can’t wait to go back!

My best highlight of my trip? I ran across the Golden Gate Bridge!!! While it was only about 1.3 miles and much shorter than my normal runs, it still felt like a huge life accomplishment. And since the fog rolled in right after we arrived, it felt like running in the clouds!

I started at the first Pier and walked all the way around the coast until I ended up a Ghirardelli Square

The BART (public train system) was surprisingly nice, clean and very roomy! I'll be writing up a huge review on all of the public transport systems I've ridden on around the world soon.

As is custom for me and my BFF, we had to get pedicures together!
