Drake Stadium- UCLA
This is the home of the UCLA Bruins soccer and track & field teams. It features a 400 meter track, perfect for running anytime of the year. About four laps is equivalent to one mile. For an even better workout, hit the stairs for an intense cardio workout!
San Vincente Blvd- Brentwood
The grassy median along San Vincente is probably one of the Westside's most popular running paths. The median begins at Federal Ave and heads west about 4 miles to Ocean Ave. Its wide enough for nearly a dozen runners to run side by side, so you won't ever feel like space is an issue!
The Strand - Santa Monica Pier
The strand is a 22 mile paved bike path that begins at Will Rogers State Park in the Palisades and ends at Torrance County Beach in South Bay. For a good two mile run, run from the Santa Monica Pier all the way to the Venice Boardwalk.
The 26.4 acre park is located along Ocean Ave. offering amazing views of Santa Monica Bay. The park stretches 1.5 miles from Adelaide Drive to Santa Monica Pier. The three mile loop includes incredible scenery including trees and plants and more!
Do you have some favorite running spots on the Westside? We would love to hear!

The U.S. Department of Energy mandates the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) for air conditioners would increase from 13 to 14. Basically SEER is a calculation based on how much a unit cools compared to the amount of the energy the actual device consumes while cooling. The higher the SEER rating gets the more energy efficient it is, thus increasing the cost for homeowners. While there have been changes in the past, this mandate nearly a full system replacement (both the indoor and outdoor unit) in order to make the system compatible. That also could mean structural work if the unit does not fit in the existing space.
Energy savings obviously vary based on location, usage and the rating of your current condenser, but homeowners can expect the new condenser to cost roughly 55-66% higher than a SEER 13 unit. What are your thoughts on this new regulation?
