A Morning Run in Beverly Hills

Photo heavy!

The sights and sounds of an early morning run on any business trip away from home are a total pleasure for me. I love the escape into a new neighborhood, city or town and feeling like I’m actually a part of it. I’m out here now for the Lion King in 3D press event & red carpet premiere thanks to Disney. What fun!

Going for a run in Beverly Hills was quite an inside peek into the rich & famous and the “LA lifestyle”.

People always throw excuses about not exercising or going for a run or walk while away but I most always try to squeeze it in as I have no excuse not to do so because it truly becomes one of my most memorable experiences that really make me feel like I’ve visited a place if I go for a real run there.

Honestly the new scenery just energizes me and fills me with adrenaline.

Take a peek at today’s adventure……

The neighborhoods with perfectly sculpted & tree lined streets. And the unique homes looking to be from the 1930’s – very old Hollywood feel.

The expensive shops on Rodeo Drive. Every ultra luxury brand imaginable had a store on this strip.

The Beverly Wilshire Hotel – circa 1928.

And even the alley’s were beautiful between all these packed in Hollywood style mansions. Immaculate!

 Disclosure: Just because this is a biz trip, I probably need a disclosure although my running has nothing to do with my biz. Regardless, thanks to Disney & ClickComm for paying my travel expenses to LA to attend their Lion King 3D blogger press event. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own.
