We all know that sheltering in place is a drag – we must stay inside to eat, learn, and live.
However, we can go outside for some fresh air, time on trails, a bike ride, a colorful walk around the block, and work on some inventive projects.
Here are some of the things the RINA staff is doing to keep them sane in their ‘off ’ hours.
- For the first time in 25 years, our Managing Director of Auditing and Accounting, Howard Zangwill took out his bike and rode the Mount Tamalpais Summit Loop. This 16.3 mile ride climbs to an elevation of 2,450’ and is considered the birthplace of modern mountain biking. Hats off to you. And, remember, life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.
- Staff Accountant Alana Smart has surely made the best of her quarantine. She decided to pick up her stuff and go stay with her long-time boyfriend at his parent’s guest home in Scottsdale, Arizona. Boy was she happy they did! She’s really been enjoying hanging out by the pool, having food prepared for her and playing games. Plus, she was able to see her best friend growing up and have a memorable birthday celebration.
Alana and her boyfriend Bennett have also invested in a keyboard piano, midi controller, and some music producing/editing software. Alana has been singing forever and even won a couple of competitions while growing up, but she wanted to expand her music expertise and try writing some songs. What an inspiration you are Alana – we hope you continue doing what you love and reach for the stars!
