a running visit to victoria

Hi lovelies! Hope you had a nice weekend! I headed to Victoria on Saturday for the Victoria Half Marathon. First time visiting & boy did they exceed my expectations. Not only was the little city charming, but the folks were great. Met some locals on the ferry over & around the city. two thumbs up.Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetMy lady Tamie came along for the journey. We stayed at the loveliest little airbnb house right outside of downtown. We had Saturday afternoon & evening to do a bit of sightseeing. How gorgeous is the Empress hotel? And the Parliament building? Wow.

Plenty of room to breathe & take in the incredible views.

* An extra special shout out to those who donated to the Athletics for Kids organization. Thank you again! I appreciate it so so much & so do all the awesome kids:) Really. You’re the best!
