I’m in Encinitas this week, staying with Luann and Chi. I went running on the beach yesterday and plan to do that this whole week – if anything will get me motivated, it’s this! When I wake up in the morning, still in bed, I listen to the birds chirping outside my window . . . I feel like I’m in a jungle! It will be mid-60s to low 70s and sunny all week. I’m soaking it up . . . I head back to Chicago in about a week and half.
