Someone please remind me to never, ever, ever, EVER run Arroyo Trabuco during the summer. Last weekend, it was still technically summer, and I forgot that I can’t do that trail in the heat. Big mistake. The last 2.5 miles of my ten mile run on this wretched, mostly shade-forsaken trail, I played that game where I had to lay down in the shade every ten minutes or so to recover, cool down and get my heart beating normally. It was awful. AWFUL.
As always, I managed to take a few pictures, none though of myself sprawled out on the dirt floor trying to regain my composure.
So happy to finally close the door on summer (though not necessarily the heat, but that is soon to come)!
