    the pancake flat one lane roads that made for a good time-based run today (2.5 hour goal) in nearby Garner Valley, where many a Hollywood western has been shot.

      I know it said this before, but it sure looks like the South.

      but it doesnt smell like the south. we've had no rain here in 3 months, so it lacks the nice, musty smell of deep south's rich earth. We feel pretty lucky every day that a forest fire doesn't get started up here, because it's a tinder box.

    Mike wanted flat for a change. These dirt one-laners on old ranch land (now in public doman) just 10 miles down the road were perfect for it. Well, by Idyllwild standards anyway (318 ft g... read more

    Today's run was about identifying the root cause of trail injuries. Bloody well identified. Stupid root. :) I thought the manufacturer said these were steel-toed sandals...

    it was such a nice trail run, heading to where I'd meet up with Mike to run back to Pine Cove with him. So nice. Until I tried to put my sunglasses on while still running -- just enough dist... read more

      If I had done that I would have flipped over from hitting the root and the glasses would have gone flying into the bush to be lost. Nice run, aside from the stumped toe. (quoting Huck Finn).

      Taking my eyes off the trail for a second is pretty much a face plant opportunity.

      thank you, Sue. They may become better; a friend is giving me a long-term borrow of her high-end camera that she's not using. Up to now, it's just been your basic pocket camera.

      It sounds like the town coffee houses and restaurants must have had a booming business! You should open a booth on the hill to sell blister cream.

      lol. good point. and a good day for it! I'd forgotten that it was Idyllwild's annual Art Walk day -- more than 15 art galleries and many individual artisans with booths enjoying the annual burst of business, fueled by the wine tasting part of the event. So, as long as my blister cream stand could be done up to look like art.....

      Right now it's archery (deer) season here, but gun season will be here in a month. Where I live, I can't avoid it unless I stay inside. I wear ALL the bright colors! Tarantulas... I can't help you with that. :-) So good to see you out and about. You've had quite a ride the laast several months

      "...unless you stay inside..." so you have bullet-proof walls??? ;-) Yes, this summer was quite the unexpected adventure, Kim. I do expect the same of Autumn, but only sought-after adventures. ;-) Indeed, I do NOT take for granted every run I'm able to do. I believe wholeheartedly that this trail running business breathes life and joy into me.

    good bonus mile on the stepper 1 mi

    when i realized i was a mile short of 30 for the week after the afternoon run, i did a mile's worth on the stepper to round things up fairly.
