Eating in San Diego

California has a few breweries but none near where Andy and I live. Luckily we spent a week in Andy's old stomping ground...San Diego!

Andy, his mom Josie and I went to Stone Brewing Co. for dinner one night after Andy spent the day at a teacher's conference. Our friend Coral turned us on to the brewery and their awesome food.

I ordered pear cider since I wasn't in a beer mood but wanted something. It was delicious!

010

Andy ordered duck tacos with black beans and rice. He was thrilled.

011

I ordered Macaroni and beer cheese with sausage. It was rich, cheesy and amazing. I never have macaroni and cheese like this anymore and I really miss it.

Josie order the currant cider which was even better than my pear! Next time I'm getting that. Andy ordered the Stone IPA which he loves but I find a little hoppy. (I prefer pale ales or wheat beers.)

Later in the week, I met with Coral and her adorable daughter Hannah. We went to Oggi's pizza which was new to me. I ordered the Santa Fe personal pizza. It was delicious. The crust was perfection. I ordered a salad on the side and ended up only eating half the pizza.

Next up, we went out to Sally's Seafood on the Water

013

Crab cakes were ordered.

014

And sushi! We all really enjoyed this place. I'm not huge into sushi but I tried a spicy tuna roll and enjoyed it.

Completely unrelated but worth mentioning, I have been considering signing up for my first half marathon on October 17th. I've completed three relatively slow 5k's but I alternated walking and running with all of them. Lately I haven't been running much at all. Knee and heel pain keeps me away.

Anyhow, I want to work with a podriatrist on my plantar fasciitis and see my current doctor about the knee issues and get their okay before signing up for the half. I still plan on walk/running because it works for me and I'm not concerned about my time. I really just want to complete a half marathon. It's a big dream of mine and signing up for a big race will keep me motivated to continue running. Still, with the pain and irritation I've been experiencing, I wonder if it's possible. I'd have 12 weeks to train using the Hal Higdon novice plan.

Anyway, I just wanted to know your thoughts. I will also see what the doctors think and let you know.

Whoa, that's weird- I just came across Hal Higdon's running plans yesterday, haha! I'm using his 10K novice plan to help me get my distance back to where it was. Depending on how I do with that, I may/may not give half-marathon training a shot.

You go, woman- you've already been my hero for all the 5Ks you've done, so I know you could pull off a half-marathon!

That's awesome Amanda! I am not a runner at all and have always wanted to do a half as well. It's on my bucket list. Good luck on doing it! I would love to hear all about it and live vicariously through you!

Hey girl, definitely talk about it with your doctor and see what he/she says. I tried running my last half with an IT band issue and had to drop out at mile 4 b/c the pain was too much. You want to be sure you are injury free before doing something like a 1/2. You will be able to do a 1/2 eventually, just be extra sure that all is well before doing the one in October. I will keep my fingers crossed that you will be able to!!!!!! :)

I'm soooo not a runner but a friend convinced me to try a 5k for the first time coming up in Oct as well. Any advice for a new trainee?
Wishing you luck on your training for the half-marathon. It's great to have something to keep you motivated. I hope the doctor gives you the all-clear for the run.
