I’ve been spending the past few days in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area near Camelback. The last time I was in Arizona was in 2011 when I visited Tucson on my way to Los Angeles. I loved what I saw of Tucson and overall am enjoying Phoenix though I don’t plan to make it downtown.

The quality of the light here is as good as California, but the neighborhoods here feel like something closer to Denver in terms of density than many places I’ve been in California.

I went for a great 13 mile run the other day, and a shorter 4 mile run yesterday. It’s easier to run here in the dry heat, for sure. Thinking about the value of doing a marathon here at some point.

Flying back to Philadelphia tonight.
