      I'm trying to figure out what was left to be crappy. All I can think of is your guts must not have been very cooperative today.

      "crappy run" is strictly tongue in cheek way of saying exactly what you said in your 1st sentence , Pierre -- twas all fantastic. :)

      Though a super low-budget movie ($60k), we put some amazing production values into it (cast of 100+, explosions, big fight scenes & gun battles, helicopters, coast guard ships....), and it's developed an enormous following throughout the Caribbean as the first film to gain international distribution. But, so far, it hasn't gained an enormous following among runners. YOU CAN CHANGE THAT! :)

      It took 22 years to bring the movie to fruition?! Things move more slowly in the movie world than I thought.

      Aww - I knew this straight away - 'where the rabbits couldn't go - ran so fast the hounds couldn't catch 'em!' etc etc. On this side of the pond we know the Battle of New Orleans as sung by the great skiffle king, Lonnie Donegan - one of my late dad's favourites. :-)

      TJ - it's main characteristic in this first mile is heavy rockage -- so in my Vibram FiveFingers, it took constant visual diligence. but then it turned into a dirt trail near where i stopped. if i go back to do more or all of it, I'd hope for more of the latter, less of the former

      the city of hemet itself has become something of a cesspool -- druggies, gangs, violence... -- so a full suit of armor, helmet included, might be a good idea LOL but the outskirts area where the park and trails and foothills are is safe enough that i can go run without a helmet ;)

      Yes, Mike -- the mountains around LA are dustbowls with light vegetation. I love running her though because (a) memories of where i got started in trail running (b) you get more views with fewer trees and (c) it makes sure that i don't take for granted the forests i get to run in daily in Idyllwild
