A Good Day on the Dirt
Today marked my first “long” run on trail this season, and it was good to have company! I was joined by the original Elvis Jeff P. and ultra veteran Sena H. We kicked off the run at 7 a.m. under a clear blue (and warming) sky. What a day! The California Wildflowers are definitely on the rise, beckoned no doubt by the radiating sun over our heads.
We ran the from the ocean up the El Moro trail to the Laguna Nix Nature Center, back out, then down to the Laguna Canyon Ranger Station, and then up to Top of the World via the ever intimidating “Stair Step” trail. This was some good climbing folks.
I ended the day at 32 miles. Jeff P, training for the Miwok 100k in May, took it out for 30 miles (right Jeff?) and Sena, training for the Pasadena Marathon put down 20. Thanks for the great run Jeff and Sena!
