    And one more, lest you wonder why I chose Idyllwild as home.

    Also from a town road from tonight's walk. Look closely; you can see the house lights beginning to turn on here in this mile-high mountain valley. Idyllwild!

    A million stars in the sky. But who's counting. But being a street stroll, I actually DID have a connection, and we could hear all y'alls comments coming in haha. Entertaining, Andrea S.... read more

      LOL. You'll find that wearing VFFs requires a healthy self-confidence. Even well fitting ones will cause people to point and gasp and children to giggle. ;-)

      The manager I work for, wore them to meetings occasionally back when the company was smaller. Then he decided to give up running and stick to playing squash only, saying that his knees could not take both. So no more Vibrams FF

    alright Ouch, but lives to tell 4.18 mi 00:38 09:12 pace

    One of those runs where I just wasn't feeling it ... until I was feeling it bad -- like when a piece of the trail gave way on a transverse-sloped section and I had a short tumble -- lots of sc... read more

    good Run back for Mike n Ginny 1.02 mi 00:10:43 10:30 pace

    After reaching the upper trailhead of today's all-uphill run, rather than waiting for Mike and Gin, I decided to back down to find them en route because (a) it seemed like a nice thing to do a... read more

    great Up & up & up! 6.4 mi 01:26 13:26 pace

    With run buds Mike & Ginny, we carpooled off the mountain to run up the dirt, 1-lane "Old Control" mountain fire road" from its bottom (2300') to its top (5100') in Idy... read more

  8. RUN
    great High Carumba! 11.32 mi 01:53 09:59 pace

    Because I got a later start than planned, I was motivated to push hard and move fast (well, "fast" for me, for a mountain trail with almost 3k' of elevation gain) because Devil'... read more

      Yes, Arleen. I took some risks moving to such a small town -- unless you're into food service, you have to have an off-the-hill income source. But I've not regretted the move (4 yrs ago). The community, the views, the mountains, the trails make it worth the remoteness.

    One of the dozen-or-so switchbacks that make getting up Devil's Slide a little easier. A little.

    great Walk to town in the dark 1.62 mi 00:24 14:43 pace

    Thanks for the blow-by-blow commentary, Tj M. and

    good Evening walk with Suzanne 2.65 mi

    Same route as http://www.dailymile.com/people/RicM/entries/37765900, same elevation gain, same cricket serenade, same woman. Some things need not change.

    great Awesome Easy Photo Run 5.6 mi 00:52 09:12 pace

    Took a nice easy pace, choosing a route through the trail Labyrinth that offered lots of variance - heavily forested parts, High Desert stuff, and everything in between, and shooting lots of stuff... read more

    good Wildwood Walk from Wayne Rd 2.65 mi

    Wandering the nearby streets of Idyllwild, with the goal of spending a chunk of that time on a dirt road. Er, well, mud road, thanks to some much-needed rain.

  19. RUN
    alright Run. Ish 3.29 mi 00:35 10:34 pace

    I had grand intentions of a 6-mile loop with tons of altitude, but wasn't feeling up to snuff when I got out there. Lacked gumption, plus my foot was hurting again (from my labor day weekend K... read more

      When she texts you that she's dead, it will be too late? I can only make that joke because I am sure she'll be fine.

      Thanks, guys. I appreciate the support. Honestly, not sure how that foot is going to shake out. I'll keep trying some not-to-aggressive stuff, because it doesn't seem to give me a ton of trouble in the first couple of miles, but this may just take time. I suspect it's a hairline fracture. Nothing a doctor can do, and something that will self heal in five or six weeks.
