After the race, we drove back into downtown Bend and headed straight for the hotel. Some activities (like yoga) don't necessarily require a post-workout shower. Other things (like hilly half-marathons) do.
After getting cleaned up, we walked around a bit and looked for a place to eat (caloric refueling is pretty much on par with the shower for importance). We ended up at Cafe Sintra - quiet and pretty with great food.

|Brie and mushroom omlette|
Once we got back, I toodled around downtown Bend on foot looking for a place to get a pedicure, while Jared stayed at the hotel and watched football. I didn't find anywhere that fit my budget (hey, I'm picky), but I got to go in some cute shops and enjoy the little fall festival that filled the streets.
|Me and my fuzzy socks!!!|
|Fancy trail mix|
We spent the evening watching episodes of Castle, and eating the yummy pasta Jared made for dinner.
|So pretty - I love this hotel!|
|They bring you chocolate every night with the forecast|
Perfect way to chill out after our race that morning.
