On My Radar

It’s been a pretty hectic week and unfortunately these next weeks are going to be even busier. Between work, life, and marathon training I’ve now also started training for my climb up Half Dome. I just purchased a ton of new equipment and new boots, (my old ones were too small) so I need to start breaking these in ASAP! Saturday I’ve got plans for a long 16 mile run (yikes!) and my first hike with my new boots.

At least tonight I’ll get to relax and enjoy an evening at one of my favorite places in the city, AT&T Park! This will be my second game of the season and although my favorite baseball team hasn’t been doing that great I’m still excited to attend tonight game against the Atlanta Braves (plus it’s fireworks night).

Well, more on the game later. For now, here’s what has been on my radar this week:

ONE // Mom Earns Honorary MBA 

After her son became a quadriplegic in an accident, his mom helped him throughout business school. She attended every class with him, took notes for him, and helped him study every day. He just graduated… and worked with the school to make sure his mom was recognized for HER hard work too. She was surprised with an honorary MBA at graduation. I was crying while watching it! What a great mom and a great son.

TWO // Bride Asks Her Best Bros to Be Bridesmaids 

This Bride recruited her five best male “bros” to be a part of her pre-wedding celebration and the photos are amazing!

THREE // HARRY STYLES

I was never really on the One Direction bandwagon. I liked some of their songs, and I’ve enjoyed Zayn’s recent music. However, Harry Styles and James Corden. If you haven’t seen it yet, you have to watch his Carpool Karaoke. I was crying, you know, in a cool way.

FOUR // Treasure Hunter

Jake Koehler is a pretty regular dude who also happens to love diving for some long lost treasures. Jake’s found a lot of cool stuff on his dives, from GoPros and iPhones lost by rafters to knives and pistols. Jake started filming his adventures, and his river treasure hunting videos have really taken off. His YouTube channel has 1.4 MILLION subscribers, and he’s been able to make diving and creating his videos a full-time job. Not too shabby for a day on the river, right?

FIVE // Game of Thrones Trailer

Left the best for last. Winter is coming! We’re only a few short months away from the return of Game of Thrones, and after months of speculation and teasers, HBO has finally released a full trailer showing off some of what we can expect from the new season.
