​Day 68: Mammoth Lakes Double Zero

6.22.18. 0 miles.

Today is my birthday! I had almost given up on pampering myself but late last night I was able to score a pedicure appt first thing in the morning at the place in my hotel. Score. So I went to my pedi at 8 am, which was pretty great, and then I went down to breakfast and absolutely gorged myself.


I didn’t really have plans for the day except to get my free birthday drink at Starbucks, so I decided to take the trolley to the village store. I sat in there for a while and then Pammy called and I got to talk to her for a while.

Then it was getting later in the afternoon, so I took the trolley to an organic dessert place, Dessert’d, to buy some treats for my birthday, and I got a free cookie there bc it was my birthday! Score!


I took the trolley back to the hotel, got the package my parents sent me (with new shoes!), took a shower, organized my food, and then proceeded to yelp all the restaurants in mammoth lakes to decide where to eat my birthday dinner, which I really didn’t want to do. I just wanted it to be decided for me. I was kinda disappointed w the restaurant options in mammoth. Mostly caters to the resort rich people crowd/ apres ski whatever. We ended up going to the mammoth brewing co & I got a banh mi, which ended up being pretty good. I also got a glass of rosé and a root beer, bc why not. Then me, Hot Mess & Butters went to fro-yo for dessert which was very yummy, then I went back to the hotel and watched the Giants game on TV, ate my other desserts, and FaceTimed my mom, then finally went to bed around midnight (so late!).
