|Loving my dessert at Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego (circa 2008)|
The couple seated next to us waved for a waiter and asked to be re-seated.
I guess peeing in the pool isn't romantic chit-chat?
Needless to say, traditional candle-lit romance and overpriced flowers aren't the way to this runner's heart.
So, what does a girl like me do on Valentine's Day?
Here are a few of my favorite non-traditional Valentine's dates:
- A run followed by brunch (especially if the run involves Sunset Cliffs in San Diego)
- Couples sports massage
- A hike and picnic lunch
- A walk on the beach (yes, even in the winter in cold climates)
- Tandem kayaking*
|We weren't the only people who thought Sunset Cliffs was a nice spot for Valentine's|
|Hiking in Mission Trails|
*Seriously, tandem kayaking can make or break a couple. (Honest) kayak salespeople refer to them as "divorce-makers." But I swear that's not always true. Hubby and I paddle well together. I paddle, and turn around to find him taking photos.

Are you a Valentine's lover of V-day Grinch?
