Saturday, I had planned . . . oh heck, forget what I planned. This is what I did. I set out at 2:30 in the afternoon for a ridge run in the coastal hills. I didn’t begin on the ridge; I began in Wood Canon and made a quick, steep climb to the ridge. It was HOT, like the devil. But it was beautiful and oddly refreshing. I didn’t see a single other runner out there, or hiker for that matter. But I did see plenty of mountain bikers – a friendly bunch.
I ran along the ridge, with ocean views, to Top of the World in Laguna Beach. Total run: 6.5+ miles with a nice, semi-mellow climb.
ps. Happy birthday Jeremy! Wishing you the best on your Disney runs.
