I’m back! … for a hot second.

So with me being all janky with my ankle, I’ve been in a pretty shitty mood lately. I’m still doing everything and going about my normal day… it just sucks to be injured when you’re an active person. Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. I just didn’t want to overload you with any more pissy posts.

Moving on: The fitness industry just had its biggest conference last weekend, IDEA World Conference out in LA. Being in town for only three days, then having to be out in LA for a few, and then back here for just a couple more days left me reeling with too much to do and not enough time. But I’m home, in bed at 7:30pm, and determined to post some photos… before I leave in the morning for NYC. So here’s a quick recap of the conference last weekend:

Flights to LAX were crazy so I flew to Orange County instead
and took the train up… I LOVE taking the train. It’s a way more relaxing way
to travel. Santa Ana’s Amtrak station is beautiful! 
I couldn’t do a lot in my boot, but I did get to sit in on the 
coolest session ever: Parkour! 
The guys from Parkour Generations
gave an awesome workshop on some of the basics 
of Parkour conditioning. 
It was equal parts exciting (to see how it’s all done)
and frustrating (having to watch and not participate). 
But I DID hop on one of their training rails 
just to show I wasn’t entirely immobile… 
Exhibit A: Pistol Squat WITH the boot. 
Got to do some TRX teaching at our booth
which is always fun: 
Helping out with some of the bigger conference sessions

And get some presentation work done
in the best office space at the Marriott at LA Live:

If you ever stay at the Marriott at LA Live, or just happen to be near there
GO there and EAT the BURGER. It’s the most amazing burger I’ve ever had. 

This is me getting to meet Laird Hamilton. 
We talked about swimming and my ankle… 
We’re practically friends now. 

This conference is always crazy because there’s just SO much going on. 
But it was nice to have a couple free hours the last day there. 
We got to head down to Santa Monica beach to play on the rings and chill on the sand… sans boot.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned that my man-friend is in the fitness industry too.
Can’t beat getting to work AND play with him. 
; )  
Hope everybody’s having an awesome week!

  1. Reuniting with your man-friend was exactly what the doctor ordered I’m sure 🙂
