2 years ago this month I bid my hometown of Davis, California adieu after 23 years there... Small(ish)-town girl moving to the big city! It's crazy to think how fast these past 2 years have gone by. Am I really no longer a recent college grad? How can I already be in my mid-20s? Eek! I'm getting old! As friends and peers start getting married and posting baby pics on Facebook, it's a wild reminder that we are, indeed, growing up.
But becoming an adult comes with many perks, including being of drinking age... So let me raise a glass to my adopted city -- cheers, San Francisco! The past 2 years here have arguably been my best yet. Tough for them not to be, what with friends and family nearby and SF being named America's best city in 2012 :) At any rate, thank you, San Francisco, for being such a splendid host for the adventures of this 20-something, and of course, the site of many joyful runs :)
What better way to commemorate this 2 year anniversary than with photos? Enjoy!
|Roomie love, overlooking our adopted city|
|View on my drive into work, way out by the ocean. Minus the usual fog.|
|Daily stomping grounds - easily spend at least an hour in the park every day. I think the homeless people might be the only ones who spend more time in GGP than me!|
|Conservatory of Flowers in GGP|
|Bridge views from Coit Tower|
|My favorite place in the entire city - Stow Lake with a view of Sutro Tower|
|Relentless fog rolling in|
|Polo Fields - site of many a solo workout|
|View from my apartment. I'm a pretty lucky gal!|
|Ah, AT&T Park. Buster Posey, marry me? (sorry Avi!)|
|Views like this are why I carry my iPhone with me when I run!|
|Sunset District in the foreground; the park, the Richmond, the bridge, and Marin beyond|
|City views from the East Bay. So blessed to call SF home (I mean second home! Sorry Mom - Davis will always be "home home") ;-)|
