Guess Who’s Back?

Just got back from SoCal this morn­ing. I flew South­west since they have a good rewards pro­gram. That, and I can fly to either Bur­bank and/or LAX air­ports near home-home.

Any­ways, its been a long time since New Year’s that I’ve seen home-home. The weather was great. It was around the cool 70’s the whole week­end. Although, it was driz­zling a lit­tle bit Fri­day morn­ing but the clouds scat­tered and made room for some great sunshine.

Mean­while, it was great to see friends and fam. Fri­day night was a “Tacky Fun­due” party at Belle and Cicely’s pad.

Fruits, veg­eta­bles, choco­late, sausage, chips, cheese… you name it—it all god dipped. That, some Atomic Bomber­man four-play and some Twister made the night a non-stop action event. Too bad the city of San Gabriel makes you get a park­ing per­mit for $3.00 if you ain’t a resident.

Then came Sat­ur­day. It was Cat’s lit­tle shindig, cel­e­brat­ing her grad­u­a­tion from ICO/Chicago. Con­grats Dr. El Gato, and wel­come to the real world!

Besides the great food and com­pany at Cat’s new pad in East Chula Vista, it was an early night to turn in. Belle, Cicely, Jay, Jovan and Lou were about to wake up early to go to the Mud Run. So Ry and I just went back to the hotel with them.

Fast-forward a bit. There were a lot of par­tic­i­pants come to think of it. I expected it to be some­what smaller but was just proven wrong. I guess it just grew through­out the years since its inception.

Mean­while, the race was split into two cat­e­gories, one for indi­vid­u­als and the other for teams. The over­all win­ner fin­ished his 10k-run around 46 min­utes! This guy was fast. We saw him zoom by at the start, and fin­ish right away when Ryan and I walked towards the last obsta­cle course.

Over­all, it was an awe­some expe­ri­ence. Def­i­nitely a great event to go to, shoot and cheer on friends and run­ners a like. I’m look­ing for­ward to doing it next year with more peeps. As usual, the more the merrier.

I Love Mud

From my mind to yours, just because its San Diego doesn’t mean that the weather doesn’t cool down to the low 50s. Stay classy, San Diego.
