    A hot-as-hell day in paradise - mid-80s by 10am. A gorgeous loop of single track trails, deeply wooded, that made for a nice early "runch." Remote enough that I only encountered one oth... read more

      Yes - excellent indeed! but no pix to prove it this time, because I've already posted pix from this route in the past. So it was the same ol' same ol' paradise. ;)

    good times - today's lunch break run on Marion Mtn. near Idyllwild. As Lyle M. would call it, "Squirrel cam!" :)

    A lunch run that got out of hand, finishing up around 3:30pm. Lots of heart-pumping elevation gain, which is good because I've got plans for a big, high-calorie dinner tonite. We'll come... read more

    started as a grumpy walk, ended as a happy run. Successfully refreshed for the afternoon's work. :)

    Another memorable view from Suicide Peak, the highest point on today's trail run. I spent as much time up there as I dared, soaking it in, but had to head back so I wouldn't have to pull ... read more

      In that weird, perverse way (and we can all relate to this, right? Right??), one cannot help but skootch over to the edge of that potentially precipitous cliff face and wonder what it would feel like… The heart races a bit, sanity returns, and one backs quickly away. :)

    Pure joy! Hot & happy times on single track trails so fun that I forget myself for a while. Nice to tune out after a heavy, early morning of client work. My total time is fascinating: 1:11:11... read more

    lots of uphill on a former logging road, now just a fat trail, then some stellar up-n-down single track. Dinner earned. Pictures from paradise coming, after some dinner. :)
