Three Amigas

On the third day of my Streaking in the New Year  I met 2 friends at Aliso/Wood Canyons for an early morning COLD, COLD run.  Though the parking lot was full, oddly the trails were empty.  And that was wonderful!

We took our run up Meadows to overlook a lovely striking blue Pacific.  By then my gloves were off, my warm sleeves tied around my waist.  Then we looped around for a fun down hill on Mathis.  In total we logged 9.45 miles – that’s a little over 15 kilometers.  AND, I got to use my new camera.  AND, I didn’t drop it!

  2. Three amigas rock!!! Looks like the streak is going well. I'm too cozy to get up right now and run but I'm sure I'll be on the pavement soon enough. Happy Holidays ladies!!!

  4. Thanks for reading Hank! LOL. I was debating whether I needed to feminize "amigos", but I couldn't recall from my Spanish lessons. If I can remember, I want to change the title on this entry to "Three AmigAs." Merry Christmas Hank!

  5. Do you actually have to pay to use the tennis courts? So why do we pay taxes? I know I know. It's a rhetorical question.

  6. Yes, they actually pay for the courts. But that's the only place I've ever seen meters at tennis courts. We are talking about Top of the World.
