DNS for the Oakland half.
I have not really been training hard so when a trip to Lake Tahoe that my wife wanted to take came up, I did not have a big issue having a DNS. I did really miss seeing all my running friends run and catching views of some of the local bloggers that I follow.
It is awesome to run into a blogger for the first time and with this being a bay area event, I was looking forward to maybe running into others. Though, I think only a few bay area bloggers might know who I am.
In Lake Tahoe, I had a great time. Took Friday off work and was able to spend the weekend with my wife and Brooklyn, the best two year old in the entire world. :)
Brooklyn had blast playing in the snow. We went for a short walk after we arrived and she found a good patch of snow and immediate started to eat it. As long as the snow was not yellow, I was okay with her trying some. We also took her on a snow shoe hike - we pulled her in a slide. She enjoyed walking in the snow (which meant our hike went really slow at times). She also went ice skating for the first time. And, did some jumping.
