My little slice of heaven

I was so happy to get out and run this morning with Boomer. It was absolutely gorgeous outside. I was thrilled to be able to wear a skort again. And a tank top? Oh my! It's so freeing not have to wear so many layers of clothing while I'm running. I even had to make sure I had sunscreen on my face before I headed out.

The creek is flowing and the ponds are filling up.

I find I'm running up a lot more of the hills I used to hike up. That was very encouraging to me. Look at how blue that sky is! (Oh, and how cute that dog is.) LOL

The old barn at the meadow at Garin.


Gotta love the SF Bay Area -- trail running today and skiing tomorrow.
I really do love my life. ;)

Good stuff and the dog is cool too. I do wish we got more rain though. We kind of need it.

Hey Penny - come on up! LOL
