Eastgate CrossFit

Eastgate CrossFit / Eastgate CrossFit Barbell Club

I was in San Diego a few weekends ago, just for fun.  After finishing remote work on Friday near UCSD in La Jolla, we decided to check out Eastgate CrossFit nearby.  The deal was I could have sangrias and binge eat after working out.  I'm so glad we stopped by as we had such a great time at the gym!

Roasted Beet & Mâche Salad with Toasted Walnuts and Avocado

Roasted Beet & Mâche Salad with Toasted Walnuts and Avocado

You can say I've been on a Thomas Keller kick recently and I think that's because of our frequent trips up to Napa and dining at ad hoc.  The other reason is because his beets recipes are so tasty and beets are season!

Baked Beets

Baked Beets!

I've never been a huge fan of beets, probably because I was fed the terrible kinds, such as canned beets.  After dining at L'Arpège in Paris and ad hoc a handful of times this spring, I grew to really like beets.  They're sweet, juicy, bursting in flavor and so in season now!  So the next step of course is to cook them.  Baking them is my favorite style to eat them.  I've been getting them every week at the farmer's market!  SO GOOD!!

Corey's Gym / North Bay CrossFit

Corey's Gym / North Bay CrossFit

Working out, especially when traveling for work is really important to me.  It keeps me sane and is probably the only real time I get up and move around for that day.  So regardless of how early or late a class may be, I'll do it.  Under time pressure, I visited the closest gym to my hotel and client site, Corey's Gym / North Bay CrossFit.  What a cute homey little gym!

Tamalpais CrossFit

Tamalpais CrossFit

While driving up to San Rafael for work, I stopped at Tamalpais CrossFit for a workout before heading to my hotel.  I pass San Rafael all the time when going to Sonoma or Napa, but never stopped.  I might be coming to San Rafael more often for work, so I wanted to explore gym options.  Tamalpais CrossFit was one of the gyms I really wanted to visit first because they are both a CrossFit and Weightlifting gym.
