More Flavors from Wine Country

Today, I went for a short run before my skating session. The last few weeks, I’ve been treating these sessions like a workout: rolling out of the house without warming up or stretching. Running about 1.25 miles helped me get more into athlete mode when I stepped on the ice this morning.

And yesterday, I ran 3 miles by Alamo Creek. That was my first time hitting 3 miles and it felt good. Doctors, nurses, older people and anyone with an opinion like to remind me that things tend to go downhill with a woman’s body when she hits her 30’s. I figure running, yoga and skating will help me battle that downhill trend. Besides, it all keeps me sane with my graveyard shift.

Plus — I need that exercise because I like to eat food like this. One weekend in Sonoma, we did lunch at the Bistro. We were the last lunch customers seated before the restaurant closed for its afternoon break. It was small, intimate spot with tasty food. I seared my tongue on the spicy tomato broth over these mussels. The shellfish tasted fresh and plump. I finished the broth with my bread and spoon.
