Follow Me For A Week
(Early) I run almost every morning before I go to lab. I'm training for the LA marathon (my third) and have a lot of miles to put in to be ready. Because I have a lot of imaging and experiments to do this week, when I get into lab I'll do some routine preparations. I will screen specimens and check for any adjustments needed.

I'll do a workout and then hit the graduate student gym before coming in. It's an experiment day so in the morning I will collect baseline data in the morning.

It seems there’s always something to do on a Saturday night. Although I’m usually just hanging out with friends or going to a favorite bar, I also like to go to the Hollywood Bowl and catch the LA Phil.

It's long run day! I'll run at least 16 miles in the morning... I like to run through Rustic Canyon and on Topanga trails, but I inevitably end up on the beach.
I took this on one of my first long runs in LA, not a bad place to be!
