Now, back to running.....

My boy and I got out for a very beautiful six mile run this morning. We started off on the Alameda Creek Trail and ran through Quarry Lakes on the return trip. I was happy I got a shot of this little guy:


The hills are a beautiful green right now. I could actually see snow in the hills behind Sunol.

I am a nut about trees that look like this:


Quarry Lakes
I signed up for another race at the end of this month. It's PCTR's Sequoia 20k on the 28th. I have my eye on a 30k in March, on the coast. And I want to do the Mount Diablo Marathon on April 19th. So, I need to start getting my mileage up and work on those hills. It's supposed to rain on and off here for a while and I'm working quite a bit over this next week but I'll find a way to fit in runs where I can. It stays light until 6:00 now so that will help. My work is pretty close to Mission Peak but going up there without Boomer just isn't the same. I may have to adjust.
Until later.............

Looks great out there. (frickin' cold outside today). Glad to see you got another race on the schedule. I might possibly try and volunteer at the Sequoia race. You should definitely do the marathon at Diablo. I think I'm doing that as my last tune-up for Miwok. Go Boomer.

Bommer will be pisssed if you leave him behind. You'll be in the dog house...OK, that was really, really bad. Don't worry about it, he won't know. Better? Looks like some pretty days there.
