Looped out towards Walmart then down the bike path that follows the train tracks/river. Didn't have my watch on me so I guessed on the distance.

It's been a while since I've blogged, I've done a few other runs that I didn't blog but can't remember which days/how far. One of them was with Sawyer and I slipped majorly on a patch of ice and banged up my knee pretty good. I still have a good bruise from it but it doesn't hurt anymore :)

We went down to Utah this weekend, Sawyer recieved his endowment in the Bountiful temple. One of the missionaries that taught him back in Illinois drove up from California to be there and Sawyer's home ward Bishop from Illinois flew out to Utah for it as well. One of the sisters from his home ward also happened to be in Utah and Bishop Johnson had run into her the day before, he said there was a good chance she'd show up as well and sure enough she did. It was a really special day, I'm so happy that Sawyer had the support that he did. He's the first and only member in his family. That night Mitch, Kieth, Sawyer and I went on a triple date in Provo with a girl from Mitch's mission and her friend, both go to BYU. Then yesterday Sawyer and I went to stake conference with my parents and sisters and hung out at my parents place afterwards so he could meet them before heading back to Rexburg. It was quite the weekend.

Ran on the indoor track in the I-center with Sawyer, then afterwards went to a cycling class. Stationary bike for 30 minutes alternating rpm and gears between 12-22.

Gonna get back on this running train. Running is a great stress reliever for me and the last couple of weeks my anxiety has been quite high. I need to make a lot of changes to get back up to a healthy mindset, my depression dipped a bit as well. It'll be about 2-3 months before I can get in to see the neurologist for my memory problems (I'm on the wait list currently). I'm going to start up individual therapy once more and adjust my medications, I'm going to get back on a mood stabilizer because Sawyer says he's noticed my mood swings have been more abundant lately. Ehhhh.

Not sure on the distance because neither Sawyer or I had a watch. I'd guess about 3 miles, maybe more. Running in Cali feels sooo good what with a slight humidity and warmer temperatures. It was so nice. 

Later in the evening we went to Los Angeles and ended up deciding last minute to hike to the Hollywood sign, but the sun sets fast haha. We ran about 2 miles up and ended up going to a summit with a very nice view of LA and the sign.

Normally I don't run on Sundays but decided that today could be an exception. We went to Huntington Beach in the evening and right at sunset Sawyer and I ran along the boardwalk. Then we stopped and dipped our feet in the ocean, it was crazy how quick the tide rose. We ran in the sand right next to the waves for about a half mile then went back to the boardwalk and ran back to our fire pit. 7:43 average. I love the beach! It was Sawyer's first time to the Pacific coast.

Travel day, Sawyer, Mitch, Kieth and I are still a couple hours out from Rexburg. It's 1am. But hey it's Monday class schedule tomorrow even though it's a Tuesday (because of the holiday).
