I met up withAmanda from Shapin Upfor a run around SF on Wednesday morning at 6.30am and ran the mile to meet her along the Embercado. From there we turned back around and ran back along the waterfront through Fishermans Wharf. From there we decided to do a little sightseeing and climbed up to the Coit Tower – it was definitely more walking than running up those stairs but the view across the bay was incredible, despite the cloudy morning.
Back at the hotel I took advantage of the free coffee, water and fruit atHotel Griffonto stave off hanger while I quickly showered and headed off in search of breakfast with Tom. (Our hotel was perfect for everything we wanted; food and coffee freebies in the lobby, friendly staff and the quiet yet convenient waterfront location. We loved it.)
Having overheated during our trip to Alcatraz, I opted for shorts and jumper (which turned out to be a mistake!!)
Now, Tom and I have different requirements when it comes to restaurants – I want healthy, trendy, good quality and well reviewed. Tom wants Classic American – big breakfasts, pizza, hot dogs and burgers. I tried to find a combination of both with varying success- knowing that in Hawaii the odds would be swinging back in my favour (I actually didn’t feel that well and was really bloated from eating more crap than usual despite choosing salads, eggs, chicken etc- it’s scary what they pump into the food over here!)
Breakfast day 2 was at Home Plate – a very understated cafe in the Marina District that had came recommended by someone on Instagram and on TripAdvisor. It was friendly, good value and certainly a popular spot – the Huevos Rancheros were good and certainly filling.
Our activity for the day; cycling over the金色GateBridge- a must for any visitor to San Francisco.
我们被邀请参加一个旅游团Blazing Saddles为乘驾，而你可以只租用自行车的独奏之旅，（我会做下一次），这很有趣，找出沿途的一些SF的历史...，并有导游拿跳跃的照片！导游是55 $每位成人也可以聘请$ 8小时标准混合型自行车，我们大概有自行车约7小时，所以它的工作大约相同的价格。万博真人娱乐
It’s definitely a do-able activity for pretty much all fitness levels, we found ourselves near the front of the group but we were happy to wait for everyone to catch up as it provided great photo opportunities.
The Napa Valley Burger Codoes a great chicken and kale burger! Tom especially enjoyed the recommendation to visit Lapperts for ice cream although he wasn’t so thrilled when I made him cycle the 3 miles to theSan Francisco Running Companyshop where I stocked up on run fuel and of course bought some stash! Apparently it’s a must visit for any keen runners in the area. Thanks Cathryn for the tips!
不幸的是这个迂回运行店意味着我们错过了我们的计划摆渡回来，只好星巴万博开户克坐在外面随着赛季我第一次南瓜香料（是的，我是基本！）等待渡船。轮渡漂亮运行规律，虽然，带你回到各点SF - 我们花了一回渡轮大楼市场和循环沿Embercado到Blazin’鞍背。他们实际上有几个城市周围的不同租赁点，以及一个额外的几美元，你可以在任何他们的离开你的自行车。
We decided to save the $$ and take it back to our starting point, which did mean tackling one big hill, but was worth it. After dropping our bikes back we took a Lyft (like Uber) via the Mrs Doubtfire house for Tom to get a picture (call me crazy but I do not like the Mrs Doubtfire film so wasn’t bothered about this stop off!) before quickly showering and heading to dinner.
Mrs Doubtfire – love/hate/indifferent?
