Sailing Away


Every once in awhile I just need to get away. Today it was 108 degrees in Sacramento and I did not want to be outside in that weather. Luckily we got a last minute invite to go sailing in San Francisco! The weather on the San Francisco Bay was just right, low 80's on land and a comfortable 70 on the water. There was a bit of a temperature drop when we rounded the corner along the San Francisco city coastline where I had to bundle up in my new Nike Sweatshirt that I had packed in my new Nike Cheyenne Vapor backpack, but I much preferred that over 108 degree weather. 

I had never been sailing before so I didn't know what to expect. I think this was one of the best places to have my first real sailing experience. I got to see Angel Island, Alcatraz, Oakland, San Francisco and the most beautiful sunset, all from the comfort of a sail boat! I doubt I will be sailing again for a long time, but this was definitely an experience I won't forget for a long while. 

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get my workout in today, but sometimes life happens and things come up. This was not an experience I wanted to miss and that just means I will work even harder tomorrow. I have an early morning #NTC workout scheduled tomorrow and then I am driving to Petaluma for the chance of a lifetime. I get to run with Jason Lester, who is running and biking across the United States with Nike to raise awareness for the "journey for a better world." I am beyond excited. One of my friends is coming with me and we are going to finish off the run with a Nike gear shopping spree at the Petaluma Nike Outlet. Stay tuned for my update tomorrow!
