Hey there!

I'm Tina

Good morning!

Monica and I woke up bright an early for a run this morning. I was wide awake even before our alarm went off””I was actually laying in bed waiting for it to go off! When does that happen? Oh, when you’re on the West coast, but your body is still on East coast time.

Monica and I ran down to the waterfront””along the water and by the Olympic Sculpture Park. The weather was a little chilly this morning, but the gorgeous scenery and fabulous company totally made up for it. Plus, once I warmed up, I didn’t even notice the weather.

Will run for iced coffee!

We ran about 5.5 miles along the water and then cut up Pike Street in search of iced coffee.

Seattle Coffee Works came highly recommended, so we checked it out.

Monica and I each ordered an iced coffee and a couple of these babies:

Banana Bread Donuts? Yes, please! It was the perfect little sweet treat after a run. Mmm!

And the iced coffee”¦ awesome!! The flavor was nice and bold. And even after a good 30 minutes and the ice melting, it still had a nice strong taste to it. That’s when you know you have a quality iced coffee!

Full day of BlogHer Food ahead! Woohoo!



  1. If you love donuts, there is this little place in Pike Place Market that sells freshly made mini donuts. The line is always super long and they only take cash but they are SO worth it. Have fun while you’re in Washington!

  2. banana bread DONUT?!!!! say what? I live in a small po-dunk town in West Virginia that has no big donut chains, or creative donut shops. (well, except for Krispy Kreme, but I hardly call those things donuts. THey’re more like butter that just melts in your mouth. I need more sustenance in my donuts.) Now I’m craving banana bread. Perhaps I’ll make a loaf and cut it into a circle and call it a day.

  3. I moved here about 2 months ago and you have inspired me to go out and find new and fun places to explore. Have fun this weeked.

  4. Banana bread donuts?! How have I never come across these before? Banana bread is one of my favorite sweet treats, my mom used to make it all the time when I was younger with cinnamon sugar on the top. That waterfront looks like a nice scenic place to run. Here in Tampa, theres a spot along the bay called Bayshore Boulevard where everyone goes to bike and run and its beautiful, especially early in the morning like in these pictures.

  5. Looks like a good morning! I’ve been waking up 15 minutes before my alarm lately…..and since my alarm goes off at 6am, that’s 5:45! Way too early in my book, but I think it’s because it gets light so early these days.

  6. This post makes me so happy! I took a trip to Seattle two Octobers ago and ran this route with a friend. Such a beautiful and fun place to run!

  7. I was just telling a coworker that Iced Coffee is one of the best things in the world, but melted iced coffee is one of the worst. Maybe I just need a stronger brew (I’ve been getting it at McDonald’s, so that’s probably the issue). Sounds like you’ve been having a blast!

  8. The thought of running around the city when on vacation never has even crossed my mind but since reading your last few posts.. I’m definitely going to start doing it! What a great way to see the city and maybe find a few spots to hit up later.
    Thanks for the great post!

  9. If you have time, have a cheddar roll at Piroshky Piroskhy at the Pike Place Market. It looks like a cinnamon roll but made with cheddar and green onions. SO good! I wish all y’all bloggers were doing a meet n’ greet!

  10. Welcome to Seattle Tina! I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now and really enjoy it. It’s good to have you in my city to see where you go and what you think. (; Enjoy your time here!

  11. Wow, gorgeous pictures!! One of my best friends lives in Seattle and I have never been before, makes me want to go visit her even more – just wish cross-country flights were a bit more affordable! Thanks for letting me visit a bit through your blog 🙂

  12. Yum yum! Fun fact too, Mighty O doughtnuts are vegan so you can feel a little less guilty about eating them! Also they have a french toast doughnut which is awesome.
