I work in the city and we live in the 'burbs but the stress of daily work life often gets to me despite all the yoga and facade of zen that I put on. Getting away really helps me press "reset" and really appreciate how much I love life. This weekend we drove up the coast of California to Mendocino, a small rural town that has yet to see the glimmer and lights of San Francisco, mostly by choice.
Earlier in the week I was freaking out about yet another injury- this time it was my left foot. Walking was very painful but after visiting my podiatrist (oh em gee- yes I'm 27 and have a regular podiatrist), getting a foot adjustment and learning how to tape my foot, my fam and I were off.
There was surfing for some of us and walking around the beach for others.
Map my run and my OCD side love each other.
I slept better this weekend than I have in the last few months. I'm sporting a bit of a sunburn which will turn into more freckles. Today's 7 mile walk was probably not smart for my foot but I feel completely at peace. Completely worth it.
