I wasn’t super prolific on the blog last week, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t keeping busy and staying (mostly) on program. I kept my camera handy and captured lots of fun moments. Some of these photos ended up on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), but a lot of them didn’t, so get ready for a photo explosion!

My last post was a recap of my stair race in Phoenix, but that wasn’t all I did in Arizona. It was my first time in Phoenix (excluding layovers at the airport), and luckily I have two really great friends that live there. And they’re both named Emily!

I’ll warn you now: the title of this post is a complete exaggeration. But it stems from a truthful place – a little nugget of shame that actually exists within me. And that little nugget is this:
In the nearly 12 years that I’ve lived in Los Angeles, I’ve never been to the Griffith Observatory.

I had a new hiking buddy a few days ago. His name is Jimi.
I got to spend the day with Jimi, and I don’t even know who his owner is. My buddy and neighbor Patrick was dogsitting for a friend of his, but Patrick had to work all day, so I took Jimi. We had a good 90-minute hike in Fryman Canyon, along the very same trail where Read the rest of this entry »
