Woah. Where the heck did Saturday go?!? Before it knew it, it was midnight and I was falling asleep on the couch. Blogging just didn’t happen yesterday. Oops! 😳

Pre-Workout Snack

As soon as Mal and I woke up, we grabbed fuel for our 9-mile run. We shared a pistachio-chocolate chip muffin and an iced coffee from the Ocean Breeze Cafe. Mmm! It was definitely my type of fuel! 😉

While we ate, we planned a 9-mile loop around Newport.

We headed out toward Ocean Drive.

Passed Fort Adams State Park and Hammersmith Farm.

Then, ended up on Ocean Drive and enjoyed the lovely views.

Gorgeous!! It was one of the prettiest runs I’ve ever done.

We finished the last 3.5 miles along beautiful (and flat!) Bellevue Avenue.

I finished in 1:21:17 (9:01 pace), which was a whole minute faster than my previous 9-mile run in Vermont, and this run was a zillion times more hilly. I definitely took advantage of flat Bellevue Avenue and picked up my pace for the final few miles.

Mal’s recap: 9.5 miles 1:09:18 (7:18 pace).  Good run. Hilly but great views. It was hard to keep negative splits this week. My times fluctuated after mile 5.

Success! 9 miles! :mrgreen:

On my run, I rocked my Fuel Belt! It worked great! It didn’t bounce around at all. I was surprised, actually.

Breakfast

Mal and I quickly showered and got ready for the day. We were more than ready to eat breakfast.

At the Ocean Breeze Cafe, we started with iced coffees with cream.

I ordered the egg sandwich with Swiss cheese.

Then, Mal and I walked around, shopped, and enjoyed Newport for a few hours.

After walking around for awhile, our legs started to get tired, so we stopped by a fun outdoor restaurant with live music to grab a beer.

Of course, I ordered a pumpkin one.

A little while later, Mal’s parents met us for some more shopping and a late lunch.

We ended up at The Landing.

We started with a round of drinks. I went with a glass of Chardonnay. Cheers!!

We split the spinach-artichoke dip.

And a bunch of oysters.

On our walk home, Mal and I got distracted by Skee Ball. We play every year that we come to Newport.

Usually, Mal and I are pretty even when it comes to our Skee Ball skills, but Mal kicked my butt! He must have practiced since last year. 😉

Dinner

Then, we went back to the condo, watched the Oregon football game, and ate pizza from Firehouse Pizza. I gobbled up three pieces. My appetite was en fuego yesterday!

Gotta boogie! Heading to breakfast now!

  1. Glad you two had such a great weekend! I was in Newport last weekend and kept thinking, “I wish I had done my long run down here!” And you were not joking about the G Street hill being insane. I had my first run up that bad boy this week… it is a force to be reckoned with! 🙂

  2. Hi Tina! I just started reading your blog today! I’m really excited about finding it! Your Saturday looks absolutely perfect! I can’t wait to read more 🙂
