Found newly released Stone Smoked Porter w/ Vanilla Bean today. Perfect race prep for tomorrow’s Christmas 10k. Smoky and sweet, everything good about a porter is in my glass. #craftbeer #10k #runforbeer (at johann’s pub)
Great way to break in a new pair of @skechersGO GObionic trail shoes!
As part of training slowly starting up again, Gerardo from fortiuscoaching, Ryan Schneider and I worked on some downhill trail running technique, and some uphill torture. I also discovered that a sweatshirt works nicely as a scarf on cold mornings.
Happy Thanksgiving! Starting it off with a run and Breakfast Stout from Founder’s Brewing Company. The 60 IBUs and some bitterness at first sip and balance the malt. The flavor changes a bit in your mouth and rounds out to some sweetness with oats and chocolate. It’s light-bodied and smooth. Tastes perfect for breakfast, with slight coffee notes to wake me up. Pretty close to a perfect stout.
Post-run Swing Session Saison from Victory Brewing. A perfectly light and lemony session beer made for easy-drinking lazy afternoons. Lightly spiced and balanced with malts.

Made Epic Chocolate Stout Cake with Chocolate Bourbon Frosting from the @beeroness for my supper club last night. The theme was cooking with beer or wine, and it was delicious. This Paradise Moon Coffee Porter from the Six Rivers Brewery lent nice chocolate and coffee flavor to the cake and went went with the unsweetened chocolate bars that were melted in. Six Rivers is from somewhere called McKinleyville, CA and is owned and operated by two ladies, which is super cool and kinda rare. Thanks for a great coffee porter ladies!
First night run in my GOrun Ride 3! #golikeneverbefore #gointhedark

Training has started up again, albeit slowly. That means bye-bye baked goods for lunch.
