Wow! It has been a long time since I have posted! I would have to blame Orange Is The New Black. I have been dying to watch it for a long time. Thank goodness we didn’t start to watch it until after Ironman. We stayed up too late too many times in the last 3 weeks. We finished both seasons and it was soooooooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooooooooooood!! I am already counting down the days until season 3 comes out!
Dan and I headed to San Juan Island for vacation the next day. We had so much fun!! A couple highlights:
These are from the boat photographer. They were better than mine. :) I would totally recommend San Juan Excursions. They took a ton of pictures for us. Gave them to us for free too! Hello!
Chris (points up north): See all the boats. That is where all the whales are. (As we head south.)
Me: OOOOhhhhh man!
(another hour or 2 later)
Chris: I am pretty sure we are going to see some whales soon. Look behind you!
Everyone: (whips their heads around) Holy SHIT!!!!
All the boats are right behind us.
Chris: lets pull into this cove and watch them go by!
It was so amazing and fun! This guy was about 30 yards from us:
This was the BEST picture I got. Not great but ok. We had so much fun. It was a 5 hour tour. I thought it was a little long and Dan thought we should do the 3 hour tour. I thought we would get more bang for our buck going with the 5 hour tour. WE sure did!!
We also saw a bunch of wildlife:
Harbor Seal–We saw lots of these guys!
We had a super awesome time up north and then we had to come home. Back to reality. But we are no longer on a structured schedule. :)
What is next up for me:
My 4th Hood To Coast —> This weekend!
New York City Marathon —> November 2nd!! I am really excited about this. I have been waiting a really long time to do this.
Are you watching Orange is The New Black?
What do you like to do after recovering from a big race?
