I also treated myself to a professional massage!
Wow, did that feel great! I had never had one before, so it was a treat! The muscles in my legs are very happy now! It was sort of a reward to myself for completing my half marathons this month!
I'm taking some vacation time off from work. You know that feeling when you're just about to get so sick of your routine? That's how I felt, and I knew it was time for a break! So, I'm enjoying my time off and exploring my own city of San Francisco. (But will still be checking in and posting here!)
Here are some pictures from my hike today, around the San Francisco Bay:
