My sister’s visit!

My sister, Pam came to visit this weekend and we had a great time. She arrived on Thursday and the first order of business was eating some of the awesomeness that she brought me from Mike’s Pastry in Boston! This is my favorite bakery anywhere, if you are in Boston you must go.

Cannolis and Biscotti!

Friday was my birthday, we went to lunch at Wild Fin and then ran a few errands. Pam is a great cook and made some of my favorite foods. We had chicken pot pie, meatballs and sauce and birthday apple pie. It was all delicious.

Saturday I ran 18 miles. My friend Amy joined me for 6 then I did 12 solo. It was the best long run I have had in a while. I felt good the whole time and finished with a 10:30 average which I’m very happy with. After my run Pam, Hannah and I went to Chihuly Glass Garden in Seattle Center. The glass sculptures were amazing. The museum is a little small for the price, but we had a good time.

We then took the monorail to Westlake Center to have lunch and shop. We went to the Yard House. It was my first time there and the burger and fries were excellent. I love any place that will cook my burger medium rare.

Great burger and fries!

After lunch we went to Nordstrom Rack and Zara. I had never been to Zara and loved a coat online but was afraid to order it. The sales people were super helpful and I got a new rain coat that I love, a necessity in Seattle.
We had a great afternoon of shopping. On Sunday we were running the Hot Chocolate 15K . More on that in the next post.
