Every year before the Rose Bowl college football game, there is a traditional Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena, California. It’s a big deal in the city, it gets media coverage and thousands of attendees line up for over a 2 mile stretch on Colorado Blvd to watch. The annual parade is on January 1st unless if it lands on a Sunday then it starts on Monday. This year it happens to be on a Monday and Mondays are the busiest day for my personal training. Streets are closed and I heard detours are over 5 miles, so I have to cancel all my Monday appointments and take the day off. This will give me an excuse to actually attend the parade since I never made the time to do it each year. Maybe you will spot me on TV.
