Sweaty Saturday

There is so much to do in San Diego, its such a shame to sit at home and not get out there! SO¬†a part of my New Years goals {I don’t like the sound of resolutions}¬†was to take advantage of my weekends and explore my own home town of San Diego.

On Saturday my Mom and I decided to go check out the running trails around Balboa Park.

Balboa Park is such a gorgeous place and I’ve always enjoyed the architecture surrounding the area. I definitely recommend checking it out if you haven’t had the chance to walk around and explore! There are marked trails and we chose to try for the 4.1 mile stretch or #2 trail. It wasn’t as hard as I expected {AKA I didn’t die}¬†and its always fun to get some sunshine and exercise on a pretty Saturday!

A map of the trails! We took the Yellow #2 trail

After our run we were craving something healthy to top it off so we did a quick search of some juice places in the area. We found on Yelp a place called Juice Alchemy, which was right down the street from the park.

We chose to get the Meanie Greenie & PB+C. Let me tell you, those were SUCH great juice smoothies for after a run! I am definitely going to hit this place up again when I am in the area or if I just need a tasty, healthy refresher. The staff was so sweet and helpful when we were deciding upon what to get!¬†I was afraid the green drink would be not so tasty/bitter but it was DELICIOUS. Also the PB+C was like dessert ūüôā

Overall it was such a perfect Saturday afternoon and I felt so refreshed! It is so nice to get out of the apartment on a sunny day and enjoy some exercise and tasty treats with a friend!

Mom and I even took a #SweatySelfie after our run since we were so proud of making it the whole 4 miles!

Okay friends, now its your turn to get out this weekend and get moving!

Let me know what you think or where you are sweating at that I should check out next.

Where I Went: Grand Canyon

IMG_0231

Recently I took a trip up to the Grand Canyon and Sedona with my family. It has been something my Dad has been wanting to do since I was in¬†High School, so I had a feeling that¬†with my being in College in Arizona it was only a matter of time until we ended up here. I’m going to be honest here for a second because I was¬†soooo¬†not even the smallest bit interested in seeing the Grand Canyon. Because like, whats so special about a huge hole in the ground? And lets be real I’m not the type to do any of this crazy two day hiking and river-rafting bs. I am¬†just fine with a little stroll around and some sight seeing with my feet on the ground. Well, apparently thats something you can do at the Grand Canyon and it is totally amazing to see, even from the top of the ridge.

Unfortunately the weather sucked was not ideal and there was a little bit of rain {it was pouring} BUT we were lucky and had around 30 minutes of just clouds so we were able to go explore a bit. I was actually really impressed with the views and how beautiful it was! The pictures I was able to take did not even do it justice, but i mean it is¬†one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World for a reason…right.

Oh, and apparently people are absofreaking-lutley insane and like to climb to the edge of the rocks off the path and take pictures. WTF. These people seriously have a death wish or something. I wouldn’t even get close enough to snap a pic of below, so use your imaginations people, because it was pretty far down. Oh yah, and that’s totally a picture of the crazy lady who crawled out past the hand rails. She was later seen taking pictures on the train tracks {i’m not kidding}. It literally makes me cringe.

Of course I couldn’t let her show me up…KIDDING. This little picture is all¬†an optical illusion of me being high up on a rock {might have staged this to look a lot cooler than it was}. But of course I had to do something artsy and fun¬†when I’m at one the the Seven Wonders…right.¬†Also note my really stylish outfit. Silly me, I was expecting it to be hot outside at the GRAND CANYON, so my super trendy “Canyon Fit” was put on hold because it was literally 40 degrees out and I only brought that one jacket.. sigh.

Here are just a few more pictures I took of the Canyon. Isn’t it spectacular? I wish my pictures did it justice, because it was actually one of the most beautiful things i’ve seen. I’m thinking seeing the Seven Wonders of the World might just have jumped¬†to the top of my Bucket List.

After our Grand Canyon adventure, we decided to stop in Sedona and see what that was all about. And WOW, what a beautiful place! I can totally see why there are a bunch of spas and retreats. It is just something in the air there that is relaxing and zen. ALSO, we couldn’t stop joking about how we felt like we were in a real life cars land!!¬†{we’re lame, I know.}

Of course I could’t take a normal picture, but forget about us and just look at that sky behind us! Doesn’t it look like a painting?

The most exciting part was that it was warm enough for me to break out at least one cute outfit {yay}.

Walking this little trail around the Red Rock park was just amazing! I wanted to live here and frolic outside forever {who would have thought}. 

IMG_0305

Seriously, everyone go out there and travel outside of your comfort zone. I was not all that excited about a road trip in the car {barf}, but my feelings have been changed! You don’t need a first class ticket out of the United States to travel and see beautiful places, they’re are all around you. It doesn’t even take much, we did this whole trip over a weekend, so there is not an excuse people!

Go get inspired by the beautiful places that surround us every day.
