Running down a holiday treat

After taking a break from running, I made my come back this week. First run might as well have been another marathon despite only being 20 minutes.... alright fine, that's dramatic. You get the picture. 

But why not just jump back into it right? Our friend Megan Miller from grad school invited Jamie and me to run in a 10k this weekend with her. While I thought my legs wouldn't like it, I heard there was a holiday treat post race...Hot Buttered Rum. 

Fun atmosphere and views that the tourists pay a lot to see. I love going down to the Mission Bay resort area, reminds me how we live in paradise. 

Forcing Jamie to pose with Mr. Reindeer and my victory chalice. 
Turns out we ran another half mile because the lead bicycle rode the wrong way off course. Sounds like the staff got into the rum before the race. Jamie used the race as prep for the Carlsbad Half-Marathon, she has done a lot of run training and I'm really proud of her dedication.

 After a chat with Megan and a glass of sweet nectar, we were off to a Vessey family Christmas party.
