june 20th is the official first day of summer, but i think most people can agree memorial day feels a lot more like the starting date.
i am excited for all the outdoor activities and concerts starting up in los angeles soon. i am excited to be able to enjoy the beach and swimming in the ocean.
i am not looking forward to the weather getting any hotter though. monday (may 30th) starts my 13 week training program for the bulldog 50k ultramarathon. this means running 5+ days for week and preparing for the mileage and heat that this race will bring. luckily i have two great friends to train with, so it should be pretty fun.
here’s my (non running related) summer bucket list:
drink a beer at a dodgers game (june 20)
eat/drink a root beer float at the beach (july 4)
3. swim in the ocean
4. enjoy an outdoor movie
5. watch a concert at the hollywood bowl
visit my friend marshall and watch a lancaster jethawks game (june 4)
camp under the stars (june 10)
8. drink wine at a winery
eat a s’more (june 10)
bake a peach pie (july 2) (it was a raspberry and peach pie)
12. attend a state/county/city fair
13. wear overall shorts and birkenstocks (and make my 10 year old self happy)
