Hope you all had a great weekend! I wanted to share a few weekend finds with you all. First off, we found a fantastic Italian Restaurant in the Mission (of all places). We rarely get to the mission, but when we do we usually find some great food. Farina had such a cool ambiance and the food was to die for! I got the halibut with veggies and potatoes on the side. Finding something on the menu that is rather healthy can be a challenge sometimes, but best thing to do is to order fish or chicken and ask for extra veggies on the side. Avoid the word “fried” and opt for the word “grilled”. I also had a taste of the pasta and that was phenomenal as well. The service was so-so, but food and company was worth it.
I forgot to mention, we ran 16 miles before this meal, so we were looking forward to food! And also a glass of wine or 2. 🙂
On Saturday I had the opportunity to volunteer at the “Princess Project“, which is a foundation that provides free prom dresses and accessories to teens that might not otherwise be able to afford a dress. What an experience. Helping young girls find a dress that makes them feel beautiful is an experience that I will never forget. So happy to be able to spend time helping those who need it and make them feel comfortable in their own skin. The Princess Project really focuses on celebrating bodies of all shapes and sizes and doing whatever it takes to make young girls feel like a princess on their prom night. Looking forward to volunteering each year and donating dresses. Here is their website if you’re interested in more information.
Last but not least, Sunday morning was spent at Project Zen, getting a much needed deep tissue massage. I love this place!! With all the exercise and running, its so important to get a massage once in awhile. My body was in rough shape from the Saturday training run. I’ve been seeing a physical therapist for runners knee and IT band issues, but sadly haven’t been seeing much progress. The run tested my physical ability and was very close to giving up. Post massage, feeling much better and plan to give my body a rest from running for a few days. Fingers crossed all is well for the big day in 2+ weeks. Key learning experience: listen to your body!!
How was your weekend? How often do you get massages?
