A Run and Sunset Dinner
We left at 5:00. We had originally planned on heading up to Mt. Laguna to do a run earlier that morning, but we were worried that it would be too warm for the little man in his stroller, so we decided to push the run back to the evening. To make the most of the later start, I decided to put together a few dinner items, so hopefully we could eat a light picnic-dinner and catch the sunset while we ate high above the desert. The plan worked out great. We runked (ran+walk when necessary) for about five miles, and then made it over to the desert overlook just before sunset. We just cleared out the back of our car, which made the perfect dining area.
Ready to go
Getting ready for dinner
It was a simple dinner, brussel sprouts with bacon, bread and goat cheese, broccoli salad, grapes, and a little bit of wine.
Dining with a view
Running to Liberty Station
Jeannie proposed a run to Liberty Station, a park area and collection of various shops and restaurants. It's about five miles from our home, but since Jeannie has been working towards a half-marathon, we extended it a bit more and attempted a route that is closer to 10 miles...
My Big Sis Kicked My Ass
Yesterday I had an epic run. I missed last week's 8.5 mile after work run, so it was good to get out on a sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest and run through some trees..
Biking and Running Tecolote Canyon
I need adventure. I haven't been able to do any large adventures recently, so for now, small, one-day explorations will have to do. These aren't necessarily always about exploring new stuff, but more like exploring new ways of doing the familiar...
