I made it to Seattle! The flight was only 2 hours, but the shuttle was 1.5 hours too! We had a few stops and then got caught on the wrong side of the tracks…
This morning Tina and I ran around Seattle. We’re staying at the Fairmont Olympic and ran out the door and towards the water.
I love traveling through life on foot!
It’s the best way to sight see.
The space needle! *I didn’t edit any of these pics because I wanted to capture the gray memories. I like this weather to run in at least…
This place is gorgeous. It reminds me of Northern California and smells like camping inland at the same time. It’s perfect chilly, running weather.
We found the great path along the water and went out for a few miles, stopping to be tourists every now and then. You have to stop and take in the view when you’re traveling!
We ran about 5.25 miles (not sure since my Moto died!). It felt a lot faster than it was though – my quads are still recovering from this weekend’s races.
And of course – since we’re in coffee town USA we had to track down some iced coffee. We hit up Seattle Works Coffee on the recommendation of one of Tina’s readers.
Tina used hemp milk in her coffee and I tried it too. Not.a.Fan. I ended up not drinking the iced coffee because I didn’t like the taste. <- that never happens!
The banana bread
mini-donuts caught our eye and the barista said they were vegan so it’s totally justifiable as part of a healthy breakfast….
Actually, this is an averaged sized donut in my MASSIVE MAN HAND. It’s funny ‘cause it’s true… (Thanks for the Shaq hands mom.)
We got ready fairly fast since I was super excited about breakfast. I mean, we’re at Blogher FOOD the food is going to be great, right?!
The spread was incredible and the presentation took it to another level!
I’m going to be installing a bagel rack like this in my kitchen asap!
I got busted when I tried eating a bagel straight off the stick – I thought it was a party game?!
I piled up on the fruit and eggs, my two great food loves.
Tina and I split this French Toast bagel. It really was like eating French Toast – it had cinnamon swirls, a syrup glaze and sugar crystals.
I also got a quinoa breakfast cup. It was quinoa in a fruity syrup. Good, but I was too distracted by my bagel to be impressed.
Then, we perused the booths.
Or rather, I made a bee-line for the chocolate booth. We got a whole history of chocolate making, but I was too busy trying not to drool over the delicious smells to listen.
Now I’m in the Traffic Building Session…
See ya later!
Question: What milk do you use in your iced coffee?!
