Have A Muddy Weekend!

6 Jul

What are you up to this weekend? Any interesting plans for the summer? A group of us from CrossFit 310 will be running Tough Mudder up on Big Bear mountain tomorrow morning. I’m nervous yet excited at the same time. I’ve never done this kind of mileage on foot before (running or walking), so it’ll be pretty interesting to see how it all unfolds. I’m a little intimidated by the ice pool and the electric shock, but I know we’ll come out on top. Anyway, have a great weekend! Here are some posts from around the web . . .

CrossFit 310 Volleyball Saturdays

So, for the summer, my box (CrossFit 310) meets every Saturday for volleyball at the beach. Today’s get together was a huge success with a great turn out, and a lot of semi-competitive, but mostly really fun volleyball matches. It’s great to bond with your gym mates in and out of the box.

The summer is just about here, and I could not be anymore grateful! L.A. has been a tad gloomy the past few weeks, so I’m more ready than ever for the sunshine. Spring semester finishes the first week of June and after that it’s all fun under the sun for me (besides my day job, of course): Tough Mudder, the CrossFit Games, stand-up paddleboarding, more footie matches, Club Mini, the summer concert series in Hermosa Beach, Shakespeare by the Sea, reggae night at the Hollywood Bowl, classic movies in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, photography, a possible trip to DC?, wine tastings at Rosenthal in Malibu, volleyball Saturdays, trail runs …. I could go on. I just know this summer is going to be the best yet. How about you? What are your plans for the summer? xo

Have A Great Weekend

20 Apr

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be spending most of it cooped up in the casa working on a marketing plan & re-writing an essay I bombed (both for college). It’s supposed to be in the low to mid 80’s in SoCal, so I know plenty of friends who’ll be out at the beach playing volley, as well as some friends that are going to Coachella. I can assure you my jealousy will be contained. Meanwhile, here are some posts from around the web . . .

Summer’s Here: Be A Teenage Dream

20 May

Ahhhh summer. A time for late night swimming, fire pits, crop tops, acoustic guitars, beach dwelling, fireworks, ripped jean shorts, large sunnies, BBQ’s and any other fun little things you can think of!

When I think of summers, I tend to think of teenagers. Sneaking out to rendezvous with future lovers, no bills, just fun. Summers as an adult are welcomed (and loved) but with much less reckless abandonment.

Oh what I would give to be one again (a teenager that is). And if only my teenage self knew that my mom wasn’t lying when she said I had it easy then…

Here’s to Friday. To teenagers. And to summer.
