Easter Day Run

MY entrance to Garin:
After reading about RBR's affair with Garin, I knew where I had to go on Easter morning for my last real trail run before my marathon Sunday. I had to reclaim my territory!
And my cows were still happy to see me and Boomer. ;)

I guess, technically, I'm supposed to be tapering but since I don't follow any real training program, I'm just going to take it easy this week. Today was a 4.5 mile run in the quiet serene setting of my beautiful Garin.

RBR mentioned the bridges along the Dry Creek Trail. It's true, I have to run across them with my arms up in the air!

I took my rock back! It's MINE now. ALL MINE!

I know for a fact, she didn't see this secret trail:

A perfect sight on Easter morning:

And, my exit from serenity, back into the real world:

It was so lovely to get out early on Easter morning and get a run in with Boomer. I feel so blessed to be able to do that. And to do it in such a gorgeous surrounding.
I'm working 33 hours this week which is good in a way. At least I won't be wanting to run when I really shouldn't be. But I also know how my mood can get when I don't run (and it ain't pretty!). So, I'm sure I will have to get out a couple of days for a little run or a hike. Plus, the boy needs it! I will be going to Diablo on Wednesday to check out the beginning and the end of the marathon course since I've never been there. Christy will go with me so that will be a good day.
Until later.............

pppft Secret trail. He tells all the girls that. That fern lined trail is under a tree as you go up and through a gate leading to the High Ridge Trail. ;o)

BTW, You are awfully close to my rock there, missy!

Next time a threesome for sure!

I am soooo jealous you are doing the Mt. Diablo marathon! That is going to be a great run! I will be trying not to die at the Rage 1/2 Iron tri in Nevada next weekend.

You be wrong about that trail Lady. HA!
Someday, maybe, you will get to see it. ;)

Southbay Girl said... I read bantering between the two of you?? Hmmm.....Maybe I should participate in this indiscretion! I'll take Garin away!!!

Marcy said...
