The LA Marathon and Acura Bike Tour

I was up in LA over the weekend to ride in the Acura Bike Tour, a 23 mile or so ride early on Sunday morning before the LA Marathon. It was a fun ride, with around 17,000 other bicyclists, and apart from having to get up at 4:15 AM to get from the hotel to the start, it was most enjoyable. It was all over in 1 hour and 20 minutes.

I also went to see the end of the LA Marathon with my daughter, whose boyfriend was running. There were 35,000 runners (a small city!), I believe, and the weather was great, albeit just a bit warmer than comfortable for running.

Saturday night we had dinner at a terrific burger place called Lucky Devils, in Hollywood. I don't much care for Hollywood, although Saturday night is pretty interesting for people watching. Incredible neon lights everywhere, all sorts of people dressed up like Star Wars characters and others, folks out looking at the stars on the sidewalks, a couple of movie premiers, and so on.
But this burger place was fabulous - you have a choice of Kobe beef or Black Angus sirloin, and you can create your own burgers with lots of add-ons or order one of their amazing creations, among other foods (like mac and cheese). Probably the best burger ever! Pricey, but well worth it. All in all a great weekend.
