|Cutest little runner ever!|
The rest of the afternoon was spent at Griffith Observatory. This was almost as much fun as the race. Gorgeous views of LA and the surrounding area (even the Hollywood sign) and a planetarium/science museum type thing. Stella is really into space right now so it was a good fit. There was also a large area for running around, which Stella definitely needed. We rounded out the day with a trip to Porto's Bakery and finally headed back to the hotel.

I think the overall highlight of the trip was meeting Peter Pan. For whatever reason, there were literally no other kids around when Peter Pan was out. Which meant instead of standing in line, taking our photo, and moving on with our day, Stella ended up running around and playing with Pan for about 10-15 minutes. It was adorable.
Now that vacation is over and I am finally over the never-ending cold from Christmas, it is time to start training! After almost three weeks without running (excluding a 200m dash and one wild game of tag) I headed out for an easy 5 mile run on Friday. On the plus side, it felt easy while I was running, but the next day I was really feeling it. I took Saturday off and ran another 5 on Sunday. My plan is to keep all of my miles easy for the next week and start introducing some harder workouts in February.
