I’m getting so tired of reading Facebook, IG, texts, blogs where complaining about winter just doesn’t end. Apparently for the DC area, this finally is the end. We just got another 5 or so inches and it’s still coming down. Next week will begin my annual tradition to Boycott Winter. Which entails me putting my winter coat in storage, shopping for a new swimsuit and planning vacations. If you want to read about how I broke up with winter last year you can read it here 🙂

Instead of complaining about winter (even though by not complaining, i’m obviously still complaining ahhhhhh!) Let’s take a look at some fun, warmer weather pics from my weekend trip to Los Angeles. On our first morning we went on a hike/walk/whatever workout you SoCal’ers call it..

Sunday it rained off and on all day, but I was determined to get Cameron to the beach…It down poured the entire drive, but i saw -literally- a silver lining in the clouds and kept thinking, it might not raining at the beach…

We watched the few people hanging out, waiting for the sun to show up. It did and it was glorious. The east coast gets the sunrise, but i’m not a morning person, so this was heaven.

As much as I wanted to run out in LA, I didn’t want to take time away from visiting with my sister & her fiance on a short trip and also didn’t want to stress over fitting in a long run. I crammed all my workouts in and did a long run in the a.m. before my flight. Which was stressful and exhausting, but so worth the relaxing weekend.
