A few weeks ago my friend Lindsay posted asking about everyone’s bucket list. I have been slowly ticking off my bucket list for 4 years. But it got me to thinking how can I, everyday, in a local way expand my horizons and experience new things? So I started a list of the top 25 places I wanted to run in Southern California. This morning I checked off one of them. A nice run around Balboa Island!
If you aren’t familiar with balboa island it is quite the treasure in Newport beach a small wealthy island paradise home to many but vacation home to many more of Hollywoods elites.
The island is about 2.6 miles around. If you stay on the north front road it will it take you on a nice flat loop. Here are some of the treasures I encountered. Btw I ran 2 loops and it was about 3.3 miles .
This view is I think why this is such a popular run .
And then of course what’s an island without a dinosaur?
And lady liberty…
And the fun zone across the water
And this awesome sand castle
And looky here! On an island full of USC alum… OREGON representing… Our intern Derrick will be sooo happy!
Done with the run… Hmmmmm should I get a famous “dads” donut???
Of course!!! This is called balanced living!!
