I have to admit, my life would be grand if I could just bake and eat, and bake and eat... and not get fat. As a result, I'm also a runner. So my life ends up being more like: bake, eat, run, repeat.
Not too long ago (mid-November of this year), I ran my first 10K in San Francisco with a few friends from UC Berkeley. We were representing our school (or alma mater, in my case) for the first annual Rival10 College Challenge in San Francisco. Proceeds went towards the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the participating schools. Getting up at 6 am was totally worth running the race, as the weather was beautiful by the time we started at 9 am.
The course was equally gorgeous, taking us right near the Golden Gate Bridge:
I finished in 1:00:33, much sooner than I thought I would! Here I am doing a cartwheel to celebrate:
Afterward, we went out to eat at Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. Words can't describe how delicious the food was, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.
You see those apples on the side? Yeah, we never got to those.
I couldn't believe how soft and flaky their morning bun was inside... I mean, just look at that!
Lastly, we dug into their chocolate pudding, which I swear tasted so much better because it was served in a cup instead of a bowl.
It was hard to refrain from inhaling the chocolate pudding in order to take this picture, but I managed:
Sadly, that is the end of my delicious Tartine adventure. Until next time?
