Weekend Update

First of all I have to tell you that I did the Lake Union Loop again, this time with Cassi. We ran it on Friday, pretty awesome that I wasn't too sore to do it two days in a row. Our time was almost the exact same as when I did it by myself on Thursday.

I decided to go on up to Arlington with my parents and hang out with them. Cassi was working Friday night and all day Saturday so I figured I could get out and she wouldn't miss me too much! We ate a fantastic dinner at "The Bistro San Martin" in Arlington. It is honestly the only nice place to eat dinner around.

For Dinner: I started with a spinach salad with strawberries and onion and for my entree I had fresh Alaskan Salmon with fresh veggies. It was perfect.

We went home to the house and lounged around until bed time.

In the morning Mom and I got up and ran some errands and in the afternoon we come down to Seattle and dropped Dad off at the airport, he's off to the UK for business.

Mom and I were on a mission to find her new running shoes and we stopped first at Super Jock n' Jill and it was the best costumer service I have ever witness. The guy was amazing and Mom found shoes that were perfect.

Let's see . . .  then we spent two hours being indecisive about where we wanted to eat dinner and we finally stumbled upon a little place called Nettletown right in Eastlake, up the road from my apartment. All I can say is that is was decent. I really like the concept, mostly foraged and found edibles, fiddle head ferns, nettles, local wild mushrooms, etc. It seemed like there wasn't a lot of culinary creativity to match the ingredient creativity. Things were good, but not awesome and in Seattle, every meal can potentially be awesome, I prefer awesome.

We called it a night pretty quick, Cassi finally got off work and Mom went back to the condo and we went to bed.

Now I am on a quick break from work and wanted to come blog real quick. I worked at 8:30 this morning and am back on at 4:30. I hope it's mellow because I am real tired. Depending on how late I get off work tomorrow I really want to run the loop again, Mom and I already have plans to run it on Tuesday! I'm lovin' it!


  1. Your a fiddle head fern! What are those and what are nettles? Miss ya.

  2. Oh, that was me buddy! You know who! Where's the Bob Dylan video you were supposed to post for me so I could laugh!?
