Stairs AND an Obstacle Course! (Tower 2 Tower Race Recap)

June 7, 2016

I competed in my 8th stair race of 2016 on Saturday (and my 35th overall!), and it was a unique experience for me. There were TWO buildings! The race was called Tower 2 Tower, and the start line was at the base of the City National Bank building in Oxnard, California.

So I decided to take stock of all the produce in my house, and I came to a startling conclusion: Lots of it was on the verge of going bad. I wasn’t eating it fast enough!

There was more produce in my fruit bowl and fridge than normal. I was pretty stocked up before my sister and niece came to town, and then I added to my stash at the farmers market. There was fruits and veggies everywhere.
