Having the goal of running all the way to the beach mentally makes the run much more enjoyable because you have a goal in mind. This helped especially on this particular run since we were both feeling a bit sluggish throughout the whole run.
After our run, we cleaned up and hit the road for San Diego. Even though the drive took 3.5 hours, we still made it to the Del Mar Race Track in time to see a few races before heading over to the free Weezer concert after. Check out Del Mar Scene for more free concerts at the track. If you care about setlists like I do then you can see what they played here. Their cover of Radiohead's Paranoid Android might have been the highlight of the night. Next time we go to the races, we'll make sure to get there earlier so we have time to bet on some of the races.

|Wooo-eeee-oooo, I just look like Buddy Holly!|
Filled with omelets, quiche, hash browns, fruit, etc., we drove back to LA to catch a screening of Rise of the Planet of the Apes over at Fox Studios (ahhh, job perks). The movie was great, especially the work of Andy Serkis who played the main ape, Caesar. He does an amazing job portraying creatures of all sorts from Golem to King Kong to Caesar. Can't wait for the sequel.
That was it for this past weekend and now it's back to work. More blogs coming soon, promise!
