The sun decided to hide behind gray clouds all day, and as such, I began my run feeling cold, under-dressed with a beanie on top of my head. But I quickly warmed. Though not officially, what little we had of winter has come to an end. Spring is here.
Today while running Arroyo Trabuco, I came upon my first mustard seed plant of spring:
I ran along Arroyo Trabuco for seven plus miles before turning around. Making seven creek crossings on the out, and seven more on the back, I only fell into the creek once (as I approached the 13 mile mark). I was more fatigued than usual because I worked on keeping my pace up. That’s my excuse for falling into the creek, and I’m standing by it. (I only submerged part of one foot, so it was a quick recovery fall.)
