On Thursday afternoon, I flew into Kelowna, which is about 2 hours away from Kamloops. It wasn't ideal to fly into Kelowna but I just couldn't find a flight option that got me into Kamloops at a reasonable price with a reasonable number of stopovers... so I owed Amber a huge thank you for driving to get me! We took our time getting back and stopped in Salmon Arm to check out the view and stretch our legs.

On Saturday morning, we went to a great hot yoga class at Amber's studio. It was such an awesome class which left me feeling like I got a great workout! After class, we hit up the farmer's market and then met up with Amber's mom and a friend for a delicious Mexican lunch.
We had talked about going kayaking that afternoon but after all the activity the day before, I really needed a low key day. So we got some cool refreshments at Starbucks and headed down to the river area where we sat on a park bench and chatted.
On Saturday night, we got take-out pizza from a great local place that had GF pizza and I got Amber hooked on my favorite show, Parenthood!
On Sunday morning, Amber, Eric and I ran an 18 km trail race. The race didn't start until 11 am so we had a low key morning at home. The race was on a beautiful trail system in Kamloops. The course was so challenging as we had quite a few climbs but we had a great time!

|I was SO dirty afterwards! Ignore my disgusting blistered feet/black toe nail. My poor feet!|
After the race, we ate a delicious post-race meal of grilled burgers and brats and lots of other snacky things like hummus and veggies. That's the best post-race meal I've ever seen at a race!
We headed home after the race, showered, and headed out to a local winery that was about 25 minutes from Kamloops. I did a wine tasting and then we settled on a nice bottle of white wine. We shared a charcuterie plate and each had a glass of wine on the patio which had a beautiful view! The weather was absolutely perfect!
|Cheersing to having another race behind us!|
How did you spend your long weekend?
