I took the morning off from running and instead went to the gym before and after work to do some strengthening exercises for my glute and hamstring. I’m glad I had plans to take the day off from running because my hamstring was hurting more than usual at the end of the day yesterday.
I decided to go both before and after work and split my workout up, so I could sleep in a little more this morning.
My favorite table: the sweets table with fruit and dessert (behind the centerpiece).
Then we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful day. Gorgeous views of the mountains.
My handsome date for the evening who looks so suave in his shirt and tie.
The cook off featured six local chefs and challenged them to create the best seafood entree using fresh, local seafood from Alaska. They get one hour to create their meal. After that a team of judges sample all of the entrees and declare a winner.
Last year Craig and I rode the train to and from the event, but this year we decided to forgo the train and just drive ourselves. Then we could get home early so this grandma could get to bed on time. I had fun pretending to be a big-wig at the event and like I was actually someone important with my fancy camera. Plus getting dressed up, enjoying delicious food, and a beautiful evening made it a very nice event.
What type of seafood do you like?
(Scallops would have to be one of my favorites.)
