Run 13: Pacific Cliff Technical Run

I was on the other side of the mountain on Saturday for an event for my daughter, and decided to park the car and knock out my run on a trail that runs parallel to the ocean. This was a nice-ass run. Beautiful coastal flowers blooming, cool ocean breezes, hummindbirds everywhere, and it finished at a little ranch where kids were milking goats and petting farm animals.

The worst part was the return trip, 15 minutes straight uphill without a break. My calves were dying, I had to slow to a walk twice - I really hate that. Tried to be technical with the arms but fell apart after a few strides every time. So, another shameful run that reinforced my ineptitude at every level. But with scenery!

          Great pic Patrick - file that one away. Enjoy the scenery next time, listen to the wave on the rocks and the birds to distract from the sucky sensation of going uphill.
