Some people drown their sorrows with wine. Me – I down them in pizza.
We spent the week after IRONMAN Canada pizza eating our way through Vancouver and Seattle. And it was wonderful. Because pizza six days in a row. But it was also awful. Because pizza six days in a row. By the time Saturday rolled around, I couldn’t stomach another bite.
Pizza aside, a recovery week in the Pacific Northwest is always a good idea. We spent a few days in Whistler and Vancouver and then took Amtrak to Seattle where we stayed until Saturday night (note to self: the red eye home is never a good idea).
Even though vacation was lovely, like the race I was unsatisfied when it was over. And I can’t quite put my finger on why. Guessing because my race disappointment hung over me like the forest fire smoke hung over both Vancouver and Seattle all week. Looking back, though, we had a fantastic time – but I can’t wait to go back and explore more of one of my favorite places ♥
With that, a look at our trip in photos…
