Twelve in the Heat

Yesterday's run was fun. Fun but slow.... Twelve miles in wilting heat (at least wilting for us Southern Californians).

The last of our long runs had us running around the Newport Back Bay for a nice little 12 mile jaunt. The heat was oppressive, and we started at 7:30 AM! I wilted, but still finished - out of water, out of energy, and at an 11:00 plus overall pace - but finish it I did! Unlike my 16 miler a couple of weeks ago, I didn't have any cramping. My legs - more specifically - my calves, just ran out of juice!

Over the next couple of days, I will post some photos and descriptions of the Back Bay trail. For now, photos are posted at
