The miles have not been coming easily lately. Neck, then back issues, and then a cold made me limit my runs in the last couple of weeks. But I have still managed to get in some nice long runs on the weekends. The first two pictures are of a foggy morning at Rancho.
Then on Saturday I got out for one of my favorite loops, the Saratoga FA course. This time in reverse, or clockwise direction. I started out with an overcast, cool morning and then got hit with a rare September rain storm. It was one of my favorite runs of the year. Hearing the rain filter through the giant trees and the pit-patter on the ground in the middle of the forest, where you are the only person around for miles. It is an awesome feeling! I thoroughly enjoy running in the rain, even more so after 5 completely dry months.
