It All Ends In Fairhaven

Mr. Gaunt and I walked down to Fairhaven today to watch the end of the Ski to Sea Race “It All Ends in Fairhaven”. They have a vintage car show at Boulevard Park and then a festival in downtown Fairhaven, then the end of the race is at Marine Park. For those that dont know…

” widely known as the Ski to Sea, is a seven-legged, 100-mile (160 km) long, multi-event competition held on Memorial Day in Whatcom County. The race starts on the ski slopes of Mount Baker, a 10,800-foot (3,300 m) volcano, and ends at Marine Park in Fairhaven, on the shore of Bellingham Bay. The seven legs of the race are: cross country skiing, downhill skiing, running, bicycling, canoeing, mountain biking, and finally kayaking.”

So it was fun to watch the first Kayaker come in (around 6 hours after the race started). We also shared a “Heart Healthy Southwestern Wrap” (they used 95% fat free tortillas too!) and bought a sweet $5 Brenthaven laptop case at their sidewalk sale. Other than that we are sore from all the walking (and last nights strength training workouts) and mildly sunburned. I also feel super bloated. Despite having eaten very little today I can tell my weight is up, and my hands feel very swollen. I’m trying to just drink lots of water and hopefully de-puff a bit.

Oh and our entire workout was 7.5 miles roundtrip, although we did stop half way through for about an hour.
