Two weeks ago…yes, I’m way behind on these posts….I was in California for the Specialty Advertising Association of California trade show for work. I was looking forward to this for weeks because A) I’ve never been to California, so I wanted to see if it really was all that glitz and glam, and B) still being new to the company, and industry, I was really excited to dive in and learn so much more. We flew into LAX on a Tuesday and spent the week out there for the show. The show was great, and everyone involved was very welcoming. They were also determined to make my firs trip to Cali an unforgetable one. And while I learned that maybe the LA/Long Beach area isn’t where I want to run a half, I’m excited to look into the northern part to see what it has to offer. Unfortunately this is the last trade show for the year, but next year brings Vegas, Orlando and Dallas in the beginning of the year! Of course the best way for me to fully take in a new place is by taking tons of pictures, and of course finding a lighthouse!
