    great 4.93 mi 01:05 13:11 pace

    Weatherman got it totally wrong on this one. Turned out to be a perfect, sunny, near-60s day for a run. Got totally lost out there in the big trail labyrinth and didn't care. Just having fun.

      this trail labyrinth is too cool to be believed. Over 43 miles total, and some of the most fun trail running trails I've ever experienced. And because it is an interconnected network of shorter trails that makes it up, you can pick a different route every day and get a whole new experience.

    I'd heard rumors of a newly completed trail segment in the 44-mile secret labyrinth of trails in the hills west of town. Found it -- a tricky thing because they hide the entrances til it'... read more

    Doing some concrete for lunch to give my ankle a break from trail terrain. Couldn't find my groove out there. Maybe because I'm not used to pavement? Then it hits me: I blame The Clash! N... read more

    i love this. it's the view from the trails i took today on the far western slopes just beyond Idyllwild. No trees, but a fascinating geography, 'eh?

      @Ric M--Can't stand treadmills, haven't been on one since 2012. I've learned to work around the weather and you pick and choose your running days during the winter.

      I don't blame you Ric! You hung in there. I don't know if I could grind 10 miles out on a TM if I had live entertainment right there with me. Great job!
