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.
