Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 29: Sunday's "Choose Your Own Adventure" in Downtown Sac

Are you a competitive or recreational runner?  Then check out the 5K/10K/10 mile Capital City Classic, with start and finish in the park by the Crocker Art Museum and a route that goes through Old Sacramento and West Sacramento and includes great views of both cities on either side of the Sacramento River and the Tower Bridge.

But if you're more interested in a family-friendly walk to raise money to combat Multiple Sclerosis, then the 5K/1 mile Walk MS 2014 at the State Capitol is the event for you.

Or perhaps you're a gentleman who wants to show his support for women who have been subject to domestic violence or sexual abuse.  In that case, you'd be willing to force your feet into a pair of high heels to run or walk along Capitol Mall in the Walk A Mile in Her Shoes fundraiser for WEAVE.

Finally, if you're a dog lover who'd rather wait 'til the evening to venture downtown, then you can join the [informal?] meet-up gathering of Golden State Greyhound Adoption at the corner of 10th and N Streets after dinner.

And if you plan your time well enough, you could actually participate in all of these adventures in a single day, thanks to the plethora of options available to you in Downtown Sac!
