Last September we took a road trip up to Seattle. It was a quick trip, specifically so I could participate for the second time in the Iron Girl 5K. So while I ran 3.1 miles around Greenlake Park, Matt hung out with our retired racers and enjoyed a mellow morning. After the race we took Lucie and Buddy to a waterfront park so we could all stretch our legs before the drive home to Portland.
1) Hotel Maxx and Sushi – We stayed at Hotel Maxx, my favorite hotel in Seattle! It has a really groovy vibe / design and is located in the heart of downtown, within walking distance of the big touristy spots, like Pike’s Place Market and the Space Needle. They are super pet friendly, and will give you a pet welcome basket when you arrive, complete with a doggie room service menu! We did not order anything for Lucie and Buddy, but Matt and I enjoyed the room service, provided by the sushi restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel, Red Fin Sushi.
2) Iron Girl Race – Here we are before the race – I’m hoping some of that Greyhound speed will rub off on me for my race!
