Yikes! I’ve missed a couple days of posting. Between trail runs, a 5K, and a couple of casino trips, it was a busy weekend. Today’s post will kind of be like post dating my diary.
I’ll start with Saturday. A couple months ago, I joined the SoCal Trailheadz – a local trail running club. I’ve been along for a couple of “New Member” runs, but with all the marathon training that I was doing, I wasn’t able to take advantage of any of the group runs. So Saturday, I joined six other Trailheadz for an early morning run where I had run on Thursday. The day was magnificent and the company excellent as we negotiated the single tracks of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. One of the cool things about running with a group is there is always someone who knows more about the area than I do. I was once again introduced to another world that I never knew existed in Orange County!
And talk about hills? How about this one? It’s called Big Bend :
It’s the one at mile 5:
Yeah. I walked.
My legs were jelly at the top of Big Bend – so I wimped out (most of the group was going 15 miles) and headed the 2 1/2 miles back to the car. Not a bad way to start a morning – 9 1/4 miles of the most beautiful hills with some new friends!
Tomorrow – The Temecula Challenge 5K – or - when is a PR not a PR?
P.S. – Thanks Diedre for taking the camera out and snapping the photos!
