Russy’s Birthday Celebration: Day 1 “The Jump Start”

Russy and Tito proposed that we take the show on the road to Los Angeles. So this week we are in LA with the dual mission of celebrating Russy’s Birthday and catching up with some pretty cool Alumni form our network. Stay tuned here to see how we make it happen.

Introducing Russy and Tito to Los Angeles was an entertaining prospect. On the agenda for the week was hiking, yoga, sight seeing, clean food, and meeting Alumni from our networks. Note that these guys have never done any hiking, never done yoga, and never been to the west coast so EVERY experience is new.

Very cool.  Outdoor yoga at Runyon Canyon Park. I like Cali.

Hiking with Scott on our first day was the equivalent to a baptism by fire! LOL. Not only did we walk the toughest trail but we did it at a “push it” pace (he would’t say so, but he does it every day). Scott is a trainer in Los Angeles who knows his stuff.

After the hike we went for a clean lunch.  The drink in the middle is fresh squeezed lemonade with kale.

My good friend Light was substitute teacher for a Yoga class in Brentwood that plays hip-hop. The class was 90 minutes and very challenging. By the time I left I was soaked with sweat and felt great knowing that I made it through the whole thing.

More to come.
