Run and Ride
Yesterday was quite an adventure. Jenn and I headed down to USC to participate in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women. We crossed the finish line in just under an hour, which is a pretty darn slow for 3 miles but you kind of have to take into account that it took about 10 mintues from the start to actually cross the starting line. :) There were around 50,000 people there, so it took about a mile and a half to actually overcome the inertia.
A ton of people were wearing dedications to people, but probably the most amusing "dedication" was from this guy who was dedicating his run to the Dead Kennedys... :)
As we ran around the USC area, I pointed out a thousand little points of "interest." By "interest" I mean, strange little details of Kenny's college life. :)
Here's one of the funny things, I pointed out (picture by Jenn):
The story goes that the Architect for the Student Union and the President of USC got into an argument, so the Architect put in this little monkey statue that is thumbing his nose at the statue of the President.
There were radio stations and TV stations at several points on the path and there were some really cool Japanese drummers near the entrance to the Colesium where the finish line was. Running down the tunnel into the Colesium which was filled with people and the big finish line. It was only 3 miles, but they gave us medals and there were snack packs waiting for us at the end.

Jenn has some great pictures in her journal entry so definitely check them out!!!
In the evening, we headed over to the Hollywood Hills for another adventure. It was Aaron's birthday party and he wanted to do a "Dinner Ride!" We went to Sunset Ranch in the Hollywood Hills where they hooked us up with horses and led us on a ride over the mountain into Burbank where we stopped for dinner at Viva Fresh, a great mexican restaurant. Unforutunately, I think maybe I got a little too much sun during the run and the ride, so I started getting really queasy at dinner. Jenn suggested giving Ken and Shelley a call to see if they would be willing to come get me, instead of riding the horse back in my icky state. Ken was my hero and drove down at like 10pm to pick me up and deliver me home. Thanks again, Ken! You're awesome!
Here's me on Angel, the horse I was riding (Picture by Jenn):
It was a neat little adventure and I'm sorry I couldn't continue on.
