Better late than never!

It’s been over a week since our run and I’m just now blogging about it.  Now…where to begin?? I could go on and on about our amazing trip to California. We really had such a great time but this blog was started for running updates, motivation etc. So, why don’t I just mention a few highlights. I know you’re all dying to hear about the run!

On the day of our arrival (Friday) Brad and I decided that we would let the our fellow piraterunners experience Disneyland on their own and we would explore L.A. and surrounding area. Here are a few of my favorite moments:

After checking out the stars on the walk of fame, we decided we’d try and spot some real ones. Which is why we then headed to the Chateau Marmont. I was so set on seeing a celebrity. There we saw Richard Lewis and Josh Duhamel, or as Brad referred to him “Fergie’s husband”. No photography is allowed inside, so we snapped this by the garage. (Yes, I’m a nerd)

I'm not afraid to admit I'm a celebrity whore! I was so excited to be in L.A!!

We then decided to make our way to Santa Monica, driving through Beverly Hills and past a few other landmarks. We were both shocked to see yet another celebrity while approaching the pier.  None other than….Rob Lowe!!!

Rob Lowe Yo! Shooting a movie right in front of our eyes!

We then headed along the coast, taking in some of the beautiful beaches. One of Brad’s favorites was Manhattan Beach which is where a lot of volleyball tournaments are held. It was gorgeous! We stopped in Long Beach for dinner before heading to our hotel in Anaheim. We had tried to find a restaurant that was featured on the food network’s “Diners, drive-ins and Dives” but it was closed. So, we settled for a restaurant called The Crab Pot, which has been featured on the food network’s “Man vs. Food”

Bahaha...did the pot of seafood actually think it could defeat the Bodnarchuks!!

Saturday we woke up and met up with our fellow piraterunners to make our way to California adventure where the mini pirates were participating in their runs. (Photos in my previous blog) Before reaching the start line we took the time to have someone snap a shot of us in our snazzy new t-shirts courtesy of Trish.

We got lots of look from other park goers...envious, jealous glares I'm sure!

From there we had a great day exploring the parks which involved a lot of walking…just warming up our muscles for what was to come!! SB
