Day 9: EUREKA!! I’m Turning 30!

Welcome Day 8, say as I try to wake up this morning.  Still trying to get over this cold, it was hard to get up but needed to go for a quick run before my parents and I ventured off to explore the Northern California coast.  Finally up and ready, I head outside, expecting it to be freezing only to find out it was a BEAUTIFUL SUNNY morning on the coast of California. Thank You Jesus. I love running in new towns. Such a fun way to explore. If you ever get the chance to run in a new city…do it!

Once me and the family got all ready to head out on our adventure, we stopped at the local grocery store, Eureka Natural Foods to pick up some snacks.

Northern California is absolutely beautiful! Redwoods, flowers, ocean, and random animals driving people’s cars.

One of the first places we stopped was in the Redwoods National/State Park to see some old lookout bunkers from World War II!

After our venture to the Bunker, we got hungry, thankfully we were almost to Crescent City and we stopped at Good Harvest Cafe and found it to be very yummy and right off the Redwood Highway. I would recommend going there if you had never been to Crescent City and were hungry. 🙂

After lunch we continued North.  Destination, Brookings, Oregon. Where I was to put my feet in the northern coast ocean as one of my 30 things before I’m 30.

Here’s how it all went down.

it was cold

Some family shots.

A perfect picture for a great day! I do have more photos on my Canon. BUT I love my IPhone for blogging.

Tomorrow is race day…13.1 miles… under giant redwoods along the Avenue of the Giants. 5:45am is going to come sooner then later. So it’s time for bed my friends. Thank you for following my 30 day adventure.  More fun tomorrow!!!

Here’s to turning 30!



Last year my parents came to watch me run my first 1/2 marathon and after we went to the Redwood’s national Park. Here is a awesome photo of a Banana Slug.
