One More Run For August

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.

8 30 14

ps.  Happy birthday Jeremy!  Wishing you the best on your Disney runs. Smile

  1. Nice run! I don't go out in the afternoon easily. I'm way to lazy by then...
