Sunset Blvd

I got up early, not as early as I'd like, but still early, and headed down Sunset Blvd, just a block from my hotel in LA. The sun was rising, kind of ironic for me, as I headed West, down the hill towards the beach. A friend was worried about going with me and having to come back up the hill, but since I'm at sea level, I didn't think much of it.

A little distracting to run around construction, find sidewalks, dodge commuters walking to work, and lots of traffic, but still nice to get moving and cruise in a t-shirt in mild CA weather. A great way to start my day.

This is after yesterday, when I ran on Venice Beach.

My flight arrived at 1pm, and I was out of the airport and in a car in about 30 minutes, heading down to the oceanfront. A quiet day on Venice, plenty of parking, and it's sunny. I ran down the sand, going North along the waterfront, enjoying the salt air and fairly peaceful October afternoon.

It was a real treat, especially after I woke up to this:

It was 15F when I went to feed horses, and when I arrived in Venice, it looked like this, about 70F

An amazing day. I finished it off near UCLA, on Westwood Ave, drinking wine and having a nice dinner.
